everyone who is Singaporean may have a chance to say they are owners of the La Quinta Resort and Club. The GIC is reported bidding US$1.5 billion for Paulson Hotel Group which owns this beautiful property in La Quinta, California.

we are here to appreciate the golf course and hopefully we can refrain from business analysing on this thread.

here's the beauty and some of the holes (unfortunately not the landscape) that looks very similar to my home course.















enjoy the scenery......AK look familiar?

Haha, Eric. On our home course, we get to see army barracks, telecommunication signal post, big canal....

Very Happy

Played the Stadium course there some years back, it's a fantastic piece of land carved out of the desert.

Hope Singaporeans get preferential rates in time to come! Razz

lets fatten PS for a few more days before we send him to the slaughter house.......i remember that he has to give us 5-5 after his recent promotion.

next wednesday seems like a good date Feng Shui wise. it favours those who are born in the year of the rat, chicken or monkey and especially good for those born in the dawn to before 9 am segment.

well....let me know if you guys are ok before i pull the trigger.

PS both courses (Laguna and La Quinta) are designed by Pete Dye and hence the signature is there.

you really want WOW.....try the World Classic at Laguna.....if you can break 100 first time round, i will go WOW. but if you cannot, do not give up golf.

most pros on their first outing will be happy to break 90.
