For over 60 years, de Anza Country Club in Borrego Springs has combined great desert golf in a relaxing and amazing setting with impeccable service and a friendly, social culture.

The de Anza Golf Course was designed by famed course architect Lawrence Hughes. It is a challenging but fun 6,778-yard par-72 layout and is perfect for golfers of all levels. The first nine holes were built in 1958. The second nine and clubhouse were completed the following year. The American and English Ryder Cup teams were attracted to the course and played their Pro-Am event here in November 1959.

De Anza Country Club has undergone extensive renovations and remodeling through the years. In 1985, a one million dollar renovation to the clubhouse took place, enlarging the dining area and kitchen, adding the garden room and a women’s locker room.  The Golf Shop was re-located to a new building and a new cart barn built. In 1994, the 15th hole was remodeled from tee–to-green by golf course architect Fred Bliss to add interest and excitement to the back nine.  On the front nine, a lake was added to hole #3 and was voted “best hole on the course” by de Anza members.

Remodeling of the Coyote Grill occurred in 1995 with the Big Horn Room following in 1996. In 1998, both the dining room and women’s locker room were remodeled. Remodeling of the 13th hole rounded out 1998’s activities. The men’s locker room was remodeled and enlarged in 2002.

In 2014, there was an extensive remodeling to the Golf Shop, as well as the addition of a state-of-the-art Fitness Facility. In 2015, remodeling of the Lobby, Coyote Den and Main Dining Room occurred. These rooms were updated with new flooring, fresh paint and new sound boards. Also in 2015, we brought in a new fleet of beautiful Golf Carts and replaced our 3 Water Pumps on the course for greater efficiency. In 2016, Oscar Ochoa, Golf Course Superintendent, added a beautiful island to our Putting Greens.

In recent history, the Club has attracted the Golden State Tour, the longest running developmental golf tour in the country. The "de Anza Desert Classic" has established itself as one of the desert's premiere golf tournaments, attracting players on their way into the various professional tours.   

De Anza has developed into a place of unique beauty. The championship golf course, its lakes, palms, and stately trees blend easily with golden sunshine and brilliant blue sky.  It lies nestled between the Santa Rosa and San Ysidro Mountain ranges and is surrounded by the 600,000-acre Anza-Borrego Desert State Park, citrus and palm groves.  The state park further enhances the area with many hiking, biking and exploring opportunities.  It is truly a “Paradise in the Desert.”
