The golf course was built in 1958 and designed by the legendary Billy Bell, who is known for designing many other famous golf courses throughout Southern California and the Western United States. Bermuda Dunes Country Club is home to multi-million dollar homes (whose first owners included Hollywood royalty such as Clark Gable, Cary Grant, and Debbie Reynolds) as well as comfortable condominiums, and is a popular place for local residents to play a round, grab a bite, or socialize with friends.
