Emily Summers California DESERTesert Retreat

 The first tip-off that the woman tooling around the links of the Eldorado Country Club in Indian Wells, California, has something besides tee times on her mind would be the absence of golf clubs in the back of her cart. Then there’s her attire. Emily Summers is clad not in pastel slacks and spiked footwear but black leather pants and leopard-print flats. Finally, consider Summers’s conversation: “William Cody’s later buildings lean to the Brutalist,” she pronounces, rounding a sand trap and pulling up to a low rectilinear residence fronted by chunky columns. “Notice the rough cantera stone of the pillars?”
