Celebrating 50 Years on Tour! 
The 50th playing of The American Express at La Quinta sets a record for most years played in the event, snapping a tie with Bermuda Dunes Country Club. That record could have been set in 2021, but La Quinta was dropped from the field for a year as part of COVID-19 pandemic protocols.


Celebrating 60 Years

Over the past 60 years, La Quinta Country Club has been a virtual walk of fame... From Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin, to President Gerald Ford and President Eisenhower, to Bob Hope and George Lopez, and The King himself... Arnold Palmer; La Quinta Country Club has been called home to many familiar names.

Records Set On Course

2019:   Phil Mickelson shoots a 12-under (60) during the 2019 tournament, setting multiple records:

• Tied the lowest opening round in Desert Classic history
• Tied the lowest round of his career
• Became the first PGA Tour player with three career scores of 60 or lower

2017:   Canadian PGA Tour Professional Adam Hadwin shoots a course record (59) in the CareerBuilder Challenge. Hadwin was the first Canadian golfer to ever shoot 59 on tour and the 9th player to ever shoot 59 on tour – the 4th player to shoot 59 playing a par 72 course. “I don’t know … I don’t know. Perfect, I guess?” – Hadwin said on how it felt to shoot 59. Hadwin would finish 2nd in the 2017 CareerBuilder Challenge behind Hudson Swafford (LQCC Member). The Club was honored to have Hadwin accept an honorary membership for his achievement.
