Thunderbird Country Club Rancho Mirage 

With its colorful history, Thunderbird Country Club is one of Rancho Mirage’s most iconic and established golf communities. At its height, Thunderbird transformed from the humble birthplace of golf carts in the 50s to the luxurious playground of the country’s most powerful and influential figures. As the tides turn, however, Thunderbird lost its luster to newer establishments. It’s high time for Thunderbird to make a comeback. The country club, to this day, remains one of Coachella Valley’s legendary golf communities. Better be there for its renaissance.

Thunderbird is home to a fine selection of condos and single-family homes that enjoy golf course frontage and access to a slew of five-star amenities. Most of the homes in Thunderbird feature the quintessential and timeless California-style ranch design, blending perfectly well with the natural surroundings. Certain contemporary elements were added to give the homes a more updated and fresh look that’s fitting for the 21st century.

Thunderbird Country Club is home to a classic 18-hole golf course that once served as the playing grounds of the American Ryder Cup team back in the 1950's. Another memento that adds prestige to Thunderbird’s golf course is that it is the birthplace of The Bob Hope Classic (also known as PGA Tour’s Humana Challenge). Golfers and spectators can deck themselves in the latest golf fashion at Thunderbird’s golf shop, where they can also get the latest golf club equipment. For those who are seeking to improve their skill, golf lessons by Thunderbird’s professional staff are offered.

Thunderbird Country Club also has the following amenities:

  • Tennis facility (offers private, semi-private, specialized group lessons and strategy clinics)
  • Modern fitness center equipped with the latest in cardiovascular and strength training equipment
  • Several dining and social function areas (i.e. Grille Room, Halfway House Grille, and Dining Terrace)
