Overview[edit]

Among the facilities at the club are 3 championship golf courses, 27 tennis courts of various surfaces, a spa and sports center. It has been owned by ClubCorp since 1993.

Golf[edit]

The first golf course at Mission Hills Country Club opened in 1972 and was designed by Desmond Muirhead. It is over this course, now known as the Dinah Shore Tournament Course, that the ANA Inspiration, one of the five major championships in women's professional golf, is played. It was also the venue for the 1978 Davis Cup tennis final matches.

The second course was designed by golf legend Arnold Palmer and opened in 1979. A third course was added in 1988, and originally called the Dinah Shore Course, but with Dinah Shore's name being transferred to the old course after her death in 1994, was renamed as the Pete Dye Challenge Course.
