Why are you leaving out La Quinta Mountain, PGA Norman and Shadow Ridge?
ps I assume you mean Indian Wells Players not Classic?

This is very well thought out and planned.    I'm sure people will have opinions on all of these, however, you really won't have a bad course on here.
-The classic course at Indian wells seems a bit easy
-Escena is probably the worst(but a good course) but I'm sure it's on here from a location standpoint.  

you could throw in the Tradition, Big horn, Stone Eagle, if you can get on.

Would love to get on Stone Eagle. There are 5 of us and I am unsure if they could get us all on if I had my pro call. Probably would take a shot next time I'm out there with less people. 5 is just an odd number to try to get on.

Very good. Escena is the worst but still a decent course. If it was my group Id try to convince them to switch Dye challenge to day #1, dump Escena, and either play a repeat of our favorite on the last day or Classic Club or La Quinta Mountain or some other private if you can get on.

I tried to keep that round close to the airport. Myself and one other are getting there early enough to catch a round. Everyone else is coming in either during our round or about the time we finish. Honestly didn't want to have to make a hurried trip across the valley and then turn right back around and come back. Is there a better or different course close to the airport you would suggest?

I highly suggest Indian Canyons South Course. 10 minutes from the airport and lots of fun. Pretty easy and relaxed way to start the trip.

probably one of the easiest courses I have ever played and unless you are all 20+ handicap I would disagree(118 slope from the back tee's).   some of the best turf conditions I have played though.
