The property of the Cathedral Canyon Country Club was originally purchased by Lawrence Welk, the popular big band leader. The club was opened in 1975 and today the resort’s golf course offers a challenging game and residents enjoy a variety of amenities.
David Rainville designed the three nine-hole courses which are played in 18-hole combinations. There is a mixture of fairway sizes and the greens are considered to be some of the best in the region. Set against the beautiful San Jacinto Mountains backdrop, this club is the perfect place to play golf. Club advantages include pro shop, practice greens, pools, spas, locker rooms, and grass driving range. There is also a world-class clubhouse with restaurant and lounge.
Also popular here is the sport of footgolf which combines golf and soccer. A shorter course is used but the rules of golf apply except that a regulation soccer ball is used and the scoring cups are bigger. The American Footgolf League (AFGL) was founded in 2011.
Homes around the Cathedral Canyon Country club have many features including spacious bedrooms, vaulted ceilings, and large two-car garages with extra storage space. Many of the kitchens are updated with newer countertops, cabinets, and stainless steel appliances. These homes are great for long-term residency, vacations spots, or rentals. Schools that are assigned to this area include Cathedral City Elementary, Nellie N. Coffman Middle, and Cathedral City High School.
