The Tamarisk Country Club in the resort city of Ranch Mirage, California, is a place for friendships, family, and connection. With luxury homes and world-class amenities, members love the tradition of elegance.
Surrounded by the beautiful San Jacinto Mountains, the Tamarisk Country Club was established in 1952 during an era of movie stars, producers, and executives. It quickly gained popularity because it was one of only two18-hole private clubs in Coachella Valley.
Amenities of the club include the 18-hole course that was designed by William Bell. There is also a driving range, chipping, and putting greens. Members enjoy the formal and casual dining rooms, fitness center, library center, and business center. The tennis facilities have two hard courts and four clay courts. And there are many social and learning events held here like mixers, theater dinners, and book clubs.
There are many wonderful mid-century modern homes here and residents enjoy not having any HOA fees. Features include spacious rooms, wood flooring, soaring ceilings, and custom cabinetry. Many have been updated with kitchen appliances, new water heaters, granite countertops, and more. Schools in this area include Rancho Mirage Elementary, Nellie N. Coffman Middle School, and Cathedral City High School.
Tamarisk Country Club is rich in history and its founding members included Danny Kaye, George Burns, Jack Benny, and four of the Marx Brothers. These are just a few of the Golden 65 group that represent the first members. Ben Hogan was the first Tamarisk Club Professional. While serving as the club pro he won The British Open, the Masters, and the American Open. And many political figures visited this facility including John F. Kennedy, Dwight D. Eisenhower, Gerald Ford, and Harry Truman.
This club was one of four to host the inaugural Palm Springs Desert Classis in 1960. This event would later become known as the Bob Hope Desert Classic. This tournament was played at Tamarisk 18 times.
