About Thunderbird Country Club Neighborhood
Thunderbird Country Club has notoriety as being one of the oldest resort communities in the Palm Springs Valley area. It offered the first 18-hole golf course in the valley and immediately gained popularity with everyone from former Presidents to Hollywood celebrities like Frank Sinatra, Bob Hope and Ginger Rogers. Thunderbird’s longstanding reputation of representing everything that makes the Palm Springs Valley area the finest vacation destination, is what still makes it the investment of choice for discerning home buyers today.
Thunderbird’s traditional golf course is a source of great pride for the membership, and has been THE role model for many of the valley’s newer country clubs. It was designed in 1950 by John Dawson and Larry Hughes, then redesigned by Ted Robinson in 1987. It is consistently maintained in peak condition, and is one of the finest courses the desert valley has to offer. The Club’s first pro-member tournament soon developed into the Bob Hope Desert Classic; recently renamed the Humana Challenge.
Thunderbird’s lifestyle is synonymous with the ultimate in relaxation and recreation. For non-golfers, the Club offers a dynamic tennis program, a 6,600 sf fitness center with many group classes, luxurious spa treatments, scenic hiking tours and more. In 2003, the 48,000 sf Clubhouse was remodeled, creating a modernized version of the original Clubhouse, yet still preserving the original charm and sophisticated elegance. Thunderbird’s Exclusive Membership is by invitation only, member sponsored, and prospective members must be approved by Thunderbird Country Club. Thunderbird is open to Members and Guests Only.
