HISTORY & NOTABLE GUESTS
In the 1930’s, Floyd Odlum (owner of Hollywood’s RKO Pictures) and his wife, Jackie Cochran (a world famous aviatrix) had a dream… a dream of an especially beautiful place in the desert. If our greens could talk, the stories they would tell! For decades Indian Palms Country Club and Resort has quietly been host to the rich and famous from around the world.
The young couple fell in love with the 640 acres, which is now home to Indian Palms Country Club and Resort. They purchased the land for less than $100 an acre, and built The Ranch House. Early the next year, the couple began construction of their home at the present location of our Golf Shop and Palm Terrace Room. Featuring timeless views of the beautiful Santa Rosa Mountains and plenty of sunshine, the couple entertained famous friends, movie stars, and presidents.
Abundant in romance and glamour, rich in history, Indian Palms Country Club and Resort has been called the “Hidden Jewel” of the desert. It’s grounds have been visited by many celebrities, famous friends, like Amelia Earhart, and presidents Eisenhower and LBJ.
