It looks like PGA West is taking their new Sports Club up a notch offering a Movie Theater for Golf Carts. The first question that comes to my mind as a Golf Cart Owner is “Why the heck wasn’t this thought of sooner?!”. I mean what a brilliant idea. With the Palm Springs area being so golf cart-friendly and PGA West being one of the largest Country Clubs in the area, it seems to be the perfect combination. Not much has been elaborated on in regards to the Golf Cart Theater, however there was a press release. See below for the full release.
LA QUINTA, Calif., March 08, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — PGA WEST®, one of the world’s most iconic golf and lifestyle communities, has announced plans to build a new 4-acre, multi- generational Sports Club, opening in early 2018.
Heralding a bold new era of innovation, the state-of the-art facility will feature an array of world-class amenities, including a fitness center, spa, a 25-yard lap pool, bocce ball and Petanque courts, a dog park and a drive-up movie area for golf carts. Other exciting features include tennis, pickleball, volleyball and basketball courts, plus a 22-hole putting course, restaurant and a fully stocked open-air bar with fire pit.
“In order to both meet the expectations of our current Members and grow new Membership, PGA WEST® is once again creating the vision for the future and setting itself apart from the competition,” said Jennifer Jenkins, Director of Marketing & Membership Sales. “Unique attractions like the kids splash area and drive-up movie theater will ensure that families enjoy PGA WEST® together for years to come.”
