The Quarry at La Quinta was established in 1994 with a scenic mountain backdrop. Built in an old sand quarry, the Quarry features streams, waterfalls, and progressive changes in course elevation. There are water hazards which come into play on at least ten holes on the course. The course’s fairways are narrow and the painstakingly manicured greens are fast. Near hole 10, you can find a seventy foot waterfall, which is thought to be one of the tallest water features ever incorporated into a golf course. The Quarry was rated eleventh on a list of the best golf courses in the state from 1995 through 1998 and ranked 83rd among the 100 greatest golf courses in the United States by Golf Magazine in 1995. The course also features breathtaking bronze art throughout.
Course designer Tom Fazio created a three-level layout that provided players with three distinct playing areas. In Fazio’s design, the quarry’s original wall became a vital focal point, allowing players to interact with the quarry’s construction. The quarry’s bottom floor is host to seven holes, while an additional seven holes are located by the alluvial fan which could be found 80 feet above the quarry itself. There are four more holes located within a mountain cove overhead. Golfers playing on this course experience a change in elevation of over 400 feet while playing on the Quarry’s course.
Membership for the Quarry is $60,000 per person, with quarterly dues of $19,200. The club also has annual social dues of $10,000 per couple, per year. The social membership includes use of the short course and practice facilities, along with access to the spa and fitness center, and the clubhouse.
