Proud host of the Humana Challenge
La Quinta Country Club has done it again. For the 48th time, the PGA tour returns to La Quinta Country Club as we played proud hosts to the 2014 Humana Challenge. The weather was ideal and the course was in perfect condition for the tournament. PGA professional Zach Johnson was quoted in the New York Times as saying, “The greens over there are, I don’t even know how to explain them, it’s like carpet. I mean, they’re just so good. I don’t know what they do over there, but they look artificial. they’re like this every year, but they’re as good as I’ve ever seen.” Hear for yourself what Zach Johnson had to say in his interview about our championship 18.
