Indian Wells

What was once a tribal well and wagon stop slowly grew in the '50s and '60s into a small, celebrity-studded enclave. When President Dwight D. Eisenhower first vacationed in Indian Wells, he was so impressed with it that Indian Wells became his winter residence.

Throughout the '50s, tennis tournaments became annual events, and in 1960, the first Bob Hope Desert Classic was played at Indian Wells Country Club - forever making Indian Wells synonymous with top-ranked golf.

Today, thousands of pleasure-seekers come here every year seeking their own vacation oasis - at four luxury resorts, on championship courses at the Indian Wells Golf Resort, at the Indian Wells Tennis Garden, and at events like the Frank Sinatra Countrywide Celebrity Invitational Golf Tournament and the Indian Wells Tennis Tournament presented by The City of Indian Wells.
