I drive by Desert Island CC in Rancho Mirage all the time now. Just today I noticed a banner up over the normal sign showing its new name: The Sinatra Resort & Country Club. It appears it is under new ownership and they are planning a 5-start resort/hotel development to go along with the golf club that will likely stay untouched. Still going to be a private equity club for members, but likely with stay and play options for hotel guests. In recent years, it has been a little easier to get on out here as a public player, but who knows if that will change moving forward.

Just thought I'd share in case anyone is interested.

Here is an article that talks about some of the new plans:

And here is a link to the resort's new site:

Even though "Desert Island" sort of gets lost in all the "Desert This" or "Desert That" course names in the Valley, I always found that name sort of charming. Sinatra is undoubtedly more distinctive, though.

Despite the owner's insistence the name is referring to the street, how long until the Sinatra family heirs file a lawsuit?

The guy who was trying to sell his Desert Island vouchers on GK alluded to changes coming, claiming that it will become more difficult to access.
