What would a desert oasis be without beautiful, sparkling pools? La Casa del Zorro offers 28 crystal-clear pools and jacuzzis scattered across our expansive 42-acre property. Lay out in a lavish landscape and sun-kissed setting next to one of our immaculate swimming pools. Immerse yourself in warm tranquility as you soak in a personal jacuzzi. We also offer underwater lighting in all our pools for the perfect night-time dip under brilliant starry skies.
La Casa del Zorro offers five outdoor tennis courts with night lighting and match viewing areas. Guests and Club La Casa members can hit the courts year-round, or call upon our tennis pro, Mike Rogers, to improve their game. Mike is on-call and ready to help novice and advanced players alike stay fit and hone their skills.
For golfers who want to enjoy a round while staying at La Casa del Zorro, we have an exclusive partnership with the Rams Hill Golf Club for a Stay and Play Package. We also provide complimentary transportation to and from the clubhouse.
Rams Hill is considered by some to be the best course in Southern California. Designed by Tom Fazio, the course is a true masterpiece nestled on a mountain hillside overlooking the Anza-Borrego Desert State Park. The natural elevation changes make each hole distinctly different. Rams Hill’s many lakes, streams, waterfalls and never ending mountain vistas add to Rams Hill’s unrivaled senses of serenity and enjoyment.
Contact our concierge to arrange tee times and transportation.
La Casa del Zorro has coordinated an exclusive rate agreement with Bird Golf Academy. Academy attendees can now book a golf school package featuring overnight lodging at La Casa del Zorro, unlimited practice and play time at Rams Hill and an assigned Bird Golf Academy professional to provide one-on-one training, evaluation and more.

In Borrego Springs, visitors can discover a vibrant community of shops and galleries. The community’s roots stretch back to 1774, when Juan Bautista de Anza traveled through the valley searching for a land route to the California coast. Our Butterfield Dining Room is a restaurant that celebrates the rich history of the Butterfield Coach that helped pioneer the Western United States.
The centerpiece of the region is the 600,000 acre Anza-Borrego Desert State Park, the #1 state park in California according to National Geographic, where the Santa Rosa Mountains soar 6,000 feet over the desert floor. The region is rich with hiking trails, wildflowers, desert flora and fauna, mesas, buttes, and canyons. Sweeping desert vistas, secluded palm groves, and little-known Native American village sites are ready for discovery. There are fascinating traces of lost civilizations to explore, with more than fifty Native American rock art sites, petroglyphs and pictographs. The desert is also home to big-horn sheep, coyotes, bobcats, and of course foxes. The visitor’s center is located at the west end of Palm Canyon Drive.
In spring the desert is spectacular as the wildflowers burst into bloom. Sand Verbena spreads its lovely pink and lavender over acres of the valley floor. The Spiky Ocotillo bush joins in with its brilliant red flowers, and a plethora of other desert plants display their white, blue, and yellow shades of desert color. You can also find many varieties of native flora on our beautifully landscaped property.
Four-wheeled desert excursions are tailored to the interests of your party. They are available from sunrise to sunset for several hours or for an all day adventure.
La Casa del Zorro is in the heart of the Anza-Borrego Desert State Park. To the east is Arroyo Salado, to the south Yaqui Pass, to the west Hellhole Canyon, and to the north Desert Gardens. Picnic lunches can be provided to enhance your desert explorations.
Borrego Springs is a designated "Dark-Sky Community." Up-lighting is restricted, allowing for an unparalleled view of the night skies. Millions of stars and planets are visible through the naked eye and in August the Milky Way shrouds our resort in a blanket of light. The view from La Casa del Zorro is a moving experience to be forever remembered.
Club La Casa offers members access to three swimming pools, tennis courts, yoga studio, and our complete fitness center. Enjoy a refreshing swim in the resort’s sparkling pools, get your body moving and lift weights with our professional trainer, play tennis, or restore and invigorate your body in our specially designed yoga studio.
