Frequently Asked Questions

Event Format

General Event Information

  • The Shootout at PGA WEST is organized around two person teams.  Please find your own partner.  In past years, and with enough lead time, we have been able to helpone or two players each year find a partner. This siation is the exception rather than the rule.
  • We welcome couples.  If there are enough couples teams, we will have a couples division.  If we do not have a couples division, we adjust the ladies handicap to a point where the two become a competitive team in one of the men’s divisions.
  • Based on 50 teams, there will be five divisions.  The first division plays from the championship tees and the competition is gross rather than net.
  • The competition in the other four divisions is net competition.
  • Therefore, we reserve the right to adjust any player’s handicap retroactively if necessary.  In other words, sandbaggers are not welcome.  As a result, everyone has fun and a chance to win prizes.
  • In the last nineteen years,organizing our events we have had to adjust only one player’s handicap.

Accommodation Info

  • Enjoy four nights accommodations in a 2 bedroom 1 bathroom condo at Indian Palms Intervals located at the Indian Palms Country Club & Resort.  Indian Palms is located a short 10 min drive to the PGA WEST & La Quinta Resort & Club courses. 
  • Extra nights are available for an additional $100.00 per night.  Players may wish to have their own condo for an additional $200.00
How much golf?


Lots of golf!!!

  • Your Monday thru Wednesday golf at PGA WEST & La Quinta Resort & Club includes your morning tournament round of golf and you’ll enjoy unlimited afternoon replay!! Some of the crazier golfers have played 6 rounds over those three days.  You do not need to replay the same course that you played that morning.  You have access to all five of the PGA WEST & La Quinta Resort & Club courses. 
  • Sunday Evening BBQ May 5th at 7:00pm where your hosts will serve you Salmon, Rib-Eye Steak, asparagus, potatoes, fruit dish, Bloody Mary’s, Margaritas, Wine, Beer, Pop, Soda, and desert.
  • There is a Wednesday Night Awards Ceremony May 8th at 6:00pm at the Cooper Pool BBQ Area. We will award the Daily Honey Pot Payout for Wednesday as well as the Three Day Honey Pot payout.  Trophies will be awarded to the winning teams.

Early arrival or late departure

  • Based upon availability, it is usually possible to come a few days early or stay a few days later. It is always easier to stay later than come in earlier. The extra cost is $100 per condo per night.

Guests at no extra cost

  • Spouses or significant others can come at essentially no additional cost. There is no increase to the cost of accommodations. The only drawback for two couples staying in one condo is that there is only one bathroom for the two bedrooms.

Separate condo

  • One team can request a separate condo for each player.  The cost is double the double occupancy rate

Cost of golf for guests

  • Players’ guests can golf for $45 any time on Saturday or Sunday at Indian Palms CC. Guests can also golf at the PGA West and La Quinta Resort and Club on Monday through Friday afternoons for only $45.

Honey pots – 3 day PGA WEST & La Quinta 

  • There are optional daily and weekly honey pots with cash payouts. There are separate honey pots for each division. The cost is $25 per player per day for each of the three daily honey pots and $75 for the three day honey pot. $150.00 for the event
  • Check out the Honey Pot Payout schedule under the player information tab on the website.
Airfare & Car Rental
  • Each player is responsible for their own airfare and car rentals which are quite reasonable at this time if the year.  Players can fly into either the Palm Springs Airport or the Ontario Airport. I have found Costco Travel has the best rental rates, so if you’re a member go through Costco Travel to book your car rental.
  • The drive from the Palm Springs Airport is approximately 30 minutes to the condos.  The drive from the Ontario Airport is approximately 1 hour and 30 minutes.
  • LAX is an alternative but the drive is about two and one half hours.

  • Fun Golf Vacations and PNWGT.COM has a very generous deposit refund program. All but $200 of each person’s deposits is refundable through April 1, 2018. Even then, the $200 can be applied to the 2018 tournament fee.
