About Us / Rattlesnake Club History: Jimmy Schmidt's first Coachella Valley Rattlesnake opened at the Trump29 Casino in Coachella in 2002 at the behest of Jimmy's pal Donald Trump. Trump had been trying to persuade Jimmy to open restaurants in his Atlantic City casinos, but Jimmy didn't want another restaurant in a cold climate and asked Trump to call him when he needed a great restaurant in a warm climate - which he did!\n\nOwnership of the casino reverted back to the 29 Palms Band of Mission Indians in 2005, and Rattlesnake's lease was ending in 2006, so when The H.N. and Frances C. Berger Foundation approached Jimmy about moving into the brand new Classic Club golf facility they were creating in Palm Desert in 2007, he took one look at the 63,000 square foot clubhouse overlooking nearly 400 acres of stunning turf and mountains and signed on.\n\nHome to the world famous Bob Hope Chrysler Classic tournament every January, the Classic Club is a public golf facility endowed by The Berger Foundation. The Rattlesnake Cafe on the 9th hole provides light fare for golfers, while the full restaurant and bar on the second floor offer exceptional cuisine in a casual/elegant environment.\n\nWe use seasonal organic and sustainable ingredients to give you incredibly flavorful meals. Our Certified Prime Angus beef is the best in the nation and our award-winning wine list has a full range of pairing possibilities.
