CareerBuilder Challenge 2017:

Palm Springs area host city La Quinta, CA started as the Bob Hope Classic is now the CareerBuilder Challenge 2017. PGA Golf tour tournament with a new leading role Phil Mickelson. A Palm Springs golf tournament is a Pro-Am play for first 54 holes. Each of the 156 pros will play with a different amateur partner each day on different courses Arnold Palmer Private at PGA West, Jack Nicklaus Private at PGA West and La Quinta Country Club for three days.

Founded as the Palm Springs Golf Classic in 1960, the tournament evolved from the Thunderbird Invitational that was held in Palm Springs from 1954 to 1959. Until 2012 its format remained unique among PGA Tour events, being played over five days and four different courses. From 1960–62 the tournament was played at Thunderbird Country Club and Tamarisk Country Club, both in Rancho Mirage, California; Bermuda Dunes Country Club in Bermuda Dunes, California; and Indian Wells Country Club in Indian Wells, California. Bermuda Dunes has been used every year of the event and Indian Wells every year until 2006, but the roster of courses from which the event has chosen the other two courses to be played has evolved over the years. In 1963 Eldorado Country Club, also in Indian Wells, California, replaced Thunderbird Country Club. From 1964 until 1968 La Quinta Country Club in La Quinta, California, replaced Tamarisk Country Club, but in 1969 Tamarisk Country Club rejoined the event and alternated annually with Eldorado Country Club until 1986 (Tamarisk Country Club's last turn being in 1985).

An evolution towards courses more suited to modern professionals began in 1987. From 1987 until 1994, and again from 1998 to the present, a course at PGA West in La Quinta, California (the TPC Stadium Golf Course in 1987 and the Arnold Palmer Private Course thereafter) became a permanent member of the roster; from 1995–97, Indian Ridge Country Club in Palm Desert, California replaced PGA West. To make room for a new permanent member, Eldorado Country Club and La Quinta Country Club alternated from 1987–89 (Eldorado being used in 87 and 89), after which Eldorado Country Club was dropped from the roster. From 1990–2003 Tamarisk Country Club and La Quinta Country Club followed a "1–2" alternating arrangement, where Tamarisk was played the first year and La Quinta CC the next two; this pattern was deviated from when Tamarisk was used in 2004 (a La Quinta CC year by the pattern), although the 2005, 2006 and 2007 events were then played at La Quinta CC.
