Timeshare owners who are keen golfers will be happy to hear that a historic resort with an A-list Hollywood legacy and a stunning golf course is now part of RCI’s international resort portfolio.
RCI has added The Dunes Club in Coachella Valley to its network of affiliated resorts, offering timeshare owners a boutique-style residence club and it’s a real haven for golfers looking for a high-end experience in this sun-drenched part of California which has long been a magnet for those seeking warm winter sunshine.
If you’re a golfer but normally head for the Florida fairways, The Dunes Club offers a completely different experience in stunning palm-studded, semi-desert scenery, where you can alternate between a few leisurely laps in the shimmering blue pool and a round or two out on the well kept golf course.
The resort is just 15-20 mins drive from downtown Palm Springs and close to the polo fields nearby, so it’s a great base for golf, sports, shopping and dining.
Owners and RCI-subscribing members who visit The Dunes Club can enjoy the ambiance within the private gated community of the Bermuda Dunes Country Club, the original home of the PGA Bob Hope Classic. Guests here can play the same fairways following in the original footsteps of such greats as Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus and Phil Mickelson.
Palm Desert in California is a big draw for visitors seeking reliable winter sunshine. During winter, daytime temperatures range from 20C to 31C while nights hover between 8C and a very respectable 18C. Surrounded by mountains, this unique geographical location enjoys thermal belts in the nearby Coachella foothills which stablise temperatures during winter and summer – cooler in summer, warmer at night in winter.
One a year, the popular Coachella Festival takes place, showcasing some of the biggest names in music and art. The region is also well known for its lush fruit produce including mangoes, figs and dates.
The Dunes Club was once a small hotel where the Hollywood elite would come to escape for peace and winter sunshine and to soak up the desert scenery. The resort reflects this high level of luxury and old Hollywood glamour in its accommodations. Beautiful, spacious residences that include state-of-the-art kitchens, comfortable living and dining areas, and serene bedrooms with big flat-screen TVs make the resort a perfect choice for a completely relaxing holiday in the warm winter sunshine.
The resort grounds also feature a variety of pools and hot tubs, so guests or non-golfers can enjoy time on and off the green.
“The beautiful Dunes Club is a wonderful addition to RCI’s list of golf exchange options,” said Gordon Gurnik, president of RCI. “The greens and resort facilities are impressive, and the luxurious accommodations will provide a home-away-from-home experience for RCI members.”
