The Nicklaus Tournament Course is at the PGA WEST and La Quinta Resort and Club in La Quinta, California, in the Palm Springs area. Like every masterful Jack Nicklaus-designed course, it's alive with challenge, beauty and drama. Around every corner you'll find a new challenge, including the rare feature of two island greens. At 7,204 yards long, The Nicklaus Tournament Course has a stroke rating of 75.3 and a slope rating of 143. A true ball strikers' golf course, The Nicklaus Tournament, along with club's Stadium Course, is the bi-annual host of the PGA TOUR's final round of Q-School, which is attended by some of the best players in the world. Nicknamed by Members as the Nick Tourney, it's both very forgiving off the tee and extremely demanding around the greens. Without a doubt, a "must play" for not only a great test of golf, but for its magnificent desert setting.
