The Golf Committee of the Railway Industrial Clearance Association is extremely pleased to announce that we have chosen the site for the 2017 RICA Jim Ormsby Memorial Golf Tournament.  This year we will play on the Stadium Course at PGA West in LaQuinta, California.  If you are an avid golfer, you have likely heard of this course because it serves as the home course for the PGA Tour CareerBuilder Challenge (once known as the Bob Hope Desert Classic Pro/Am) which, this year, will be held from January 19th through 22nd.  For those of you less familiar with the Stadium Course, you might want to tune in the Golf Channel to fully appreciate what a remarkable layout it is.  Imagine, you’ll be playing on the same course in June that Phil Mickelson will be playing this week!


Designed by world-renowned golf course architect Pete Dye, the Stadium Course at PGA West is a par 72, 7,300-yard masterpiece that (and you can relax now) we will play about 2/3rds of a mile shorter for our event. It is an amazing collection of lush green fairways, sand bunkers, water hazards, railroad ties, rocks, cactus, and, yes, trees, all built in a stunning desert locale.  And, since it uses a Stadium Course design, it has many hills and valleys that make it very atypical for a desert course.


In a state that has some of the finest golf courses in the world (Pebble Beach, Spyglass Hill, Riviera, Torrey Pines, Pasatiempo, Olympic, Cypress Point, to name a few) the Stadium Course is ranked as the Number 6 best public course in California by Golf Magazine and the Number 25 best golf course (public and private) in California by Golf Digest.  And Golf Digest also ranks it the 42nd best public golf course in the United States.  So, simply put, we will play one of the finest golf courses in the United States this June.
