About The Club at Morningside

The Club at Morningside was established in 1982 by real estate developer Ed Johnsen. It was the second of two projects he undertook in the desert. Morningside, located in beautiful Rancho Mirage, CA, was the most upscale project in the area at that time. The club features the very first Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course designed in the Southern California desert resort cities. The golf course, set on 140 acres of manicured turf, offers breathtaking views nestled between the San Jacinto and Santa Rosa mountains. The immaculately manicured bentgrass greens await golfers on the putting greens. The Clubhouse was designed by a premier interior design firm from San Francisco, and the first teaching pro was the famous Claude Harmon, father of Butch Harmon, widely known as a premier teacher in the game of golf12.

Today, Morningside is a private-equity club owned by its membership. The club’s niche lies in the genuine camaraderie shared by members. With a membership size restricted to 225, there are no tee time lotteries and no outside non-member events. The Club also boasts a fine clubhouse operation, offering breakfast, lunch, and dinner services. Additionally, it hosts numerous club social affairs throughout the season. Services like a barber shop, shoe shine, valet parking, sauna, steam, and a world-class fitness and spa center set Morningside apart as the Club of choice for those “in the know” about private clubs
