Par-tee with Modernism Week in 2022 ⛳

The inaugural Modernism Week Golf Tournament is sure to be un-fore-gettable!

“When President Dwight D. Eisenhower completed his presidency and left the White House in 1961, he soon headed to the Coachella Valley. […] The 34th President of the United States, like many before and after him, loved to golf. He played at numerous golf courses around the desert, including Tamarisk Country Club, Thunderbird Country Club, and the La Quinta Country Club, which he dedicated on Oct. 23, 1960. However, Eisenhower’s most storied golf moment took place at Seven Lakes Country Club in Palm Springs.
On Feb. 6, 1968, President Eisenhower shot his only hole-in-one on the 13th hole at Seven Lakes. The former president’s legendary hole-in-one has become a celebrated part of the country club’s historic past.” – via Palm Springs Life

In 2022, we’re taking Modernism Week to a new level with a tee-riffic event that even Ike would like: the inaugural Golf Par-Tee and Tournament at Seven Lakes Golf & Country Club!

Originally designed by architect Ted Robinson and opened in 1965, the Seven Lakes Golf & Country Club is known as the “Gem of the Desert.” This executive course is set against the stunning backdrop of Mt. San Jacinto, and features just over 2,700 yards with 14 par-3s, four par-4s and seven man-made lakes. Rarely open to guests, this special club is one of the architectural highlights of the midcentury “leisure life” from 1960’s Palm Springs.

We’ll be kicking off the tournament weekend with a Pairings Pre-Party on Saturday, February 26 at Tahquitz Creek Golf Resort. Join us on the patio of the Hugh Kaptur-designed modern clubhouse to meet your teammates, receive tournament information, and Par-tee with fellow lovers of modernism and golf.

On Sunday, February 27, golfers of all levels are invited to swing through an 18-hole afternoon scramble. Reserve a single, twosome, threesome, or foursome, and make sure to bring your own clubs (although a limited number of rental clubs will be available). After playing, players and guests will be invited to join us at the William Cody-designed clubhouse for hors d’oeuvres, hosted bar and tournament prizes on the terrace. While not required, vintage golf and midcentury modern attire is encouraged, and will be awarded.

Celebrate with martinis at the 19th hole!
