Seven Lakes Country Club is the epitome of midcentury resort-style living in Palm Springs. Designed by architect Richard A. Harrison (formerly of Wexler/Harrison) and hidden behind The Parker Hotel, this fabulous enclave offers a peek into the carefree lifestyle that attracted celebrities, industrialists and even former presidents. Behind the entrance gates, these high-profile residents could relax in style and enjoy their privacy.
This fun and leisurely tour is a curated collection of magnificent midcentury homes that exemplify the period’s hallmark design elements: low-slung flat roofs, 10-foot walls of glass, interior atriums and angular footprints to accommodate the desert sun. Private courtyards are surrounded by three-dimensional shadow block that creates changing shadows throughout the day.
Audaciously christened “The Gem of the Desert” by its developers in 1966, with nearly 350 units sprawled amongst a lush 18-hole golf course and panoramic mountain views. In February 1968, Eisenhower hit his only lifetime hole in one on the 13th fairway. Then one week and a half later played 18 holes with President Johnson.
Tour guests will check in at the iconic clubhouse designed by architect William Cody. Soaring rooms and a large outdoor terrace seem to float over the golf course designed by Ted Robinson, known as the “King of Waterscapes” for which Seven Lakes is named.
Proceeds from this tour will support the William Cody Club House.
