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 help one or two players each year find a partner. This situation is the exception rather than the rule.
  • We welcome couples.  If there are enough couples teams, we will have a couples division. 
  • 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.

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 $150 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.
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.
Payment Structure
  • Fun Golf Vacations Inc. has a very generous payment program. You may pay the entire amount at registration or select the two easy payment option. If you need to cancel for any reason your registration fee is 100% refundable until 30 days before the event. If you need to cancel anytime within 30 days of the event you'll get a 90% refund due to administrative fees.
