Surrounded by golden mountain, drenched in sunshine, and lined with palm trees, Palm Springs’ immaculately groomed fairways are some of the best golfing courses in the world. With over 125 public and private golf courses across the Coachella Valley floor, there is no shortage of choices.
Whether you’re escaping the snow to enjoy winter’s high-season or you’re seeking for value, looking for deals in the summer heat, read on to learn about five Palm Springs golf courses we love.
Firecliff Course at Desert Willow Golf Resort
Some desert golf courses make their money on their beauty and others on their difficulty, but few courses combine the two in such a balance as the courses at Desert Willow Golf Resort in Palm Desert.
High-handicappers will enjoy the land’s more forgiving Mountain View Course. Skilled golfers will want to test their skills on Desert Willow’s Firecliff course. Both of these Palm Springs golf courses require stamina, but the beauty doesn’t stop from the clubhouse to all 36 holes and back again.
Palm Desert Country Club
The low-key courses at Palm Desert Country Club celebrated their 55th anniversary in 2017. Today, the 18-hole Championship course is known for its extensive fairways and tricky sand traps.
Waterfalls, lakes, palm trees, and the San Jacinto Mountains as a backdrop are easy on the eyes and offer a welcoming distraction from difficult holes.
The Golf Club at La Quinta
Formerly known as Trilogy Golf Club, The Golf Club at La Quinta is an 18-hole Championship course which includes wide fairways that attract golfers looking for a relaxed game with epic mountain scenery. The Golf Club at La Quinta is also popular because it’s priced generously for a course of its caliber.
Six distinct tee boxes can offer your game a range of 4,998 to 7,175 feet in length. However long you decide to golf, be sure to stay for sunset at La Quinta – the mountains turn bright red.
Traveling with your clubs can be cumbersome and heavy. To rent quality clubs locally, be sure to go to Golf Alley or Pete Carlson’s Golf & Tennis Shop. Both stores have great reviews and can get you set up for a day of Palm Springs golf in the California sun.
