Online ranking organization says “Bring Your Camera” to the Arnold Palmer Classic Course at SilverRock Resort

La Quinta, CA (October 19, 2006) – The Arnold Palmer Classic Course at SilverRock Resort has received high ratings from Greenskeeper.org as noted in the October 2006 issue of Southern California Golf News. With an 8.87, SilverRock Resort received first place in Overall Playing Conditions for the Palm Springs area. The near “immaculate” ranking puts the club in the prestigious third place for Southern California.

“We are extremely pleased to receive this kind of recognition,” said Randy Duncan, SilverRock Resort General Manager. “We realize golfers have a choice in Southern California and believe we offer the best in terms of superior play, exceptional value and incomparable service. This is confirmation that we are serving our customers well.”

Current playing conditions at SilverRock Resort were ranked by Greenskeeper.org members over an 18-month period. SilverRock Resort’s rating is generated from the scores of the Greens, Fairways, Rough, Tee Boxes and Sand Traps. These scores are combined to form the Overall Playing Condition Rating.

“SilverRock has a promising future ahead of it,” notes Greenskeeper.org. “For a young golf course, the main elements are in place to be a viable destination: a challenging, well-conditioned layout, a spectacular practice area, and an idyllic setting that begs you bring your camera along and capture the early morning sun hitting the rugged La Quinta mountains.”
