Bermuda Dunes Real Estate
Bermuda Dunes is a census-designated place (CDP) in Riverside County, California. The population was 7,282 at the 2010 census, up from 6,229 at the 2000 census. Bermuda Dunes is located near Indio and 23 miles (37 km) east of Palm Springs.
Formerly the community’s name was Myoma. Bermuda Dunes was developed in 1962 by Ernie Dunlevie and Ray Ryan. Among other celebrities Clark Gable had a home in Bermuda Dunes. Bermuda Dunes is served by the Bermuda Dunes Airport.
The CDP’s name originated from the Bermuda Dunes country club, a golf course community first opened in 1962 and the former site of the Bob Hope Chrysler Golf Classic. There are 10 other golf clubs and communities within the 5-mile (8.0 km) radius, including Sun City Palm Desert.
Bermuda Dunes Country Club hosted the Bob Hope Classic PGA Tournament for over 50 years, one of the first golf real estate developments in the Coachella Valley, site of Arnold Palmer’s first Classic Victory in 1960 and site of his last PGA victory in 1973, where Hollywood’s elite like Gable, Grant, Holden, Fisher, Reynolds, were among its first property owners, and its classic golf course is extolled by the likes of Phil, Freddie and Davis.
The course was designed by Billy Bell (he also designed Bel-Air CC, Hacienda CC, La Jolla CC, Newport Beach CC, San Diego CC, Tamarisk CC, Tucson CC, and Woodland Hills CC). All three nines are par 36 and begin and end right at the clubhouse which makes it easy to play 18 holes. Yardage for men ranges from 6,065 to 7,017, and for women it ranges from 5,302 to 6,149.
Bermuda Dunes Country Club looks to a new generation of members to add to this storied club’s rich and vibrant history.
