Built from one man’s dream of a tranquil retreat, La Quinta Resort and Club has developed over the years into a Hollywood hideaway and golf player’s haven. Purchased from the native Cahuilla Indians in the early 1920s, San Francisco businessman Walter H. Morgan bought 1,400 acres of land that had been dubbed by dwellers as the Land of the Eternal Sun. Morgan enlisted the infamous architect Gordon Kaufman along with scores of artisan craftsman to turn his vision into reality.
La Quinta was soon born, made from more than 100,000 hand-formed adobe bricks and 60,000 locally fired roof tiles. The small collection of cozy casitas surrounding a quaint restaurant was the beginning of a legend, and soon enough, word got around amongst Hollywood’s finest that Morgan’s retreat in the desert was the ideal place to hide from the limelight that Hollywood imposed. The stars fled to La Quinta for the luxury of privacy and the beautiful location, each found the resort catered perfectly to their needs. Garbo wanted isolation. Gable came to socialize with friends. Frank Capra found creative inspiration and returned to his “Shangri-La of Screenwriting” repeatedly, eventually making it his home.
