For golfers, summer in the desert poses a bit of a conundrum: 1) Get up at the crack of dawn for a tee time before the sun is overhead rising the mercury to over 100 degrees, or; 2) retire the golf clubs until November.
There’s a third option that allows desert residents and visitors to continue golfing during these hot months without having to bear the brunt of the heat or golf in the wee hours of the morning. The Lights at Indio GC is a par-3, 18-hole course and is the only golf course in the Coachella Valley that is lit at night!
The golf course is available to the public and has been a staple in the community since 1964 when it opened as the Indio Municipal Golf Course. State-of-the-art Musco lighting was installed on the course in 2007 to shine over great golf conditions until 10pm every evening. The course opens at 7am.
The Lights at Indio GC is one of the longest par 3 golf courses in the nation. The course features a full-service pro shop and snack bar serving pizza, wings, chili fries, hot dogs, onion rings and chicken tenders – along with beverages including sodas, energy drinks, vitamin water, beer and wine.
