Market Reports for La Quinta Country Club Homes October 2011

Sunday, October 30th, 2011

La Quinta Country Club Market Trends October 2011

LA QUINTA COUNTRY CLUB MARKET TRENDS OCTOBER 2011

Views of the Santa Rosa Mountains from the 6th fairway at La Quinta Country Club

 

AVERAGE PRICE for SALE vs SOLD for the period 7/10  to 9/11

 

 

La Quinta Country Club home sales have primarily been in lower price range and many have been distressed properties.  Montero Estates within LQCC had the most sales with most of them in the REO or bank-owned category.  November signals the beginning of our season and many homes previously on the market will be brought back to the market.  It will be interesting to see if the prices on the new listings reflect the lower prices that the current market dictates.

There should be some great deals available this fall at La Quinta Country Club... give me a call for a tour of the club and the homes here!

La Quinta CC has Royal Wedding Party!

Thursday, April 28th, 2011

Royal Wedding Celebration Party

Tonite I will go to bed early… and set my alarm for 1am!  I’ll be joining my girl-friends for a Royal Wedding Celebration Party at the La Quinta Country Club!  My husband thinks it’s silly–but we are are going to have a royal-good time!

 

It’s been nearly 30 years since people gathered around their television

sets to watch a fairytale wedding an ocean away.

So Friday’s nuptials between Prince William and his princess-to-be, Kate Middleton, are giving the Coachella Valley’s British residents an excuse to pop open the bubbly, break out the trifle bowl and throw parties with a royal romance theme.

“The Brits love a wedding. It makes them feel good,” said Jennifer Murray, who spends winters away from England playing golf at La Quinta Country Club.

She and Susan Weir expect about 30 guests for their girls-only party, coordinated to begin with live television coverage at 1 a.m.

The dress code is pajamas, tiaras and pearls. White gloves are optional.

“A lot of women worldwide watch it on their own,” Murray said. “It’s a girl’s thing, a woman’s thing, and men don’t understand it. They all think we’re mad here.”

Great News! First Home in La Quinta Country Club to sell for over $1,000,000 in over 2 Years!

First home to sell in La Quinta Country Club over $1,000,000 in over 2 Years!

I had the listing last season on this beautiful custom built home on the 10th fairway at La Quinta Country Club and finding a buyer willing to pay over $1,000,000 proved to be a difficult task.  We actually had a $1,000,000 cash offer that my sellers turned down.  This year I brought them a buyer who not only paid cash… he was willing to pay $1,025,000 and close within 11 days!

As a closing gift I am working on a painting of the home for the new owners– it was Russel Ray’s idea!

Great news for the La Quinta Country Club neighborhood and it’s members!

Practice rounds for the amateurs, celebrities and pros will begin on Monday and Tuesday of this next week, but I have spotted many pros getting in early practice sessions here at La Quinta Country Club.  Kevin Na and Boo Weekley were here last week rolling putts on our lightning-fast greens!  Tournament play begins on Wednesday,  Jan. 19th and concludes Sunday, Jan. 23rd at the Palmer Private course at PGA WEST. 

Bill Haas, who won his first PGA TOUR event at the 2010 Bob Hope Classic, will return this year to defend his title.  Some of the celebrities scheduled to play this year are Wayne Gretzky, Sugar Ray Leonard, Kevin Nealon, Kurt Russell, and Sterling Sharpe along with many other celebrity athletes and entertainers!  Each day the celebrity field will be at a different course… the schedule is below.

Where the Celebrities Play!

What is the Best Golf Course in the Desert?

Saturday, January 8th, 2011

What is the Best Golf Course in the Desert ?

I have played almost every one of the golf courses in the Coachella Valley in the past 20 + years.  Years ago when I competed as a professional, some of the events we played were here in the desert.  When I think of the amount of time, money and swings involved… it is considerable.  I have played PGA West, Bighorn, The Quarry, Rancho La Quinta, O’Donnell, Mission Hills, Tamarisk, Morningside, Thunderbird, Indian Wells, Desert Island, SilverRock, and many, many more.

When people ask me to name the best golf course here… it is easy… the course I played today and the picture I took above– La Quinta Country Club.

La Quinta Country Club was designed by Lawrence Hughes in 1959 and is a classic beauty measuring over 7060 yards from the classic tees, and all you can handle!   With hundreds of trees lining it’s plush fairways, well bunkered greens, 4 large lakes, and lightning fast greens it is a pleasure to play and a challenge!  During the Bob Hope Classic, La Quinta Country Club plays the toughest for the pros.  But it is a fair test for beginners and golfers at any level.  When you play the course, you use every club in your bag.

My favorite hole at La Quinta has to be the 18th. It is a 412 yard par 4 from the classic tees and requires a long, straight drive between the lake and the right-hand bunker, heading back west toward the clubhouse and the Santa Rosa mountains.  Then an accurate long-iron shot into a narrow green with bunkers on the right and long and a lake guarding the left side.  It takes  two great shots on 18 to set up a birdie putt and a spectacular finish!

If you are given the opportunity to play La Quinta Country Club… do IT !  It is the best golf course in the desert!
