Tom Fazio dynamited an old gravel pit for this Palm Springs private layout and added lakes and waterfalls. The challenge and beauty of his handiwork has resulted in the course gaining a spot among Golf Digest's top 100 courses in America.

The tee markers here are in keeping with the course's name: The blacks are chunks of black obsidian, blue and white markers the appropriate shade of calcite and the reds a becoming rose quartz.
