One of the reasons we went to Palm Springs for three months is the great golf. And, golf we did.
Here are a few of the courses that we played:
Tahquitz Creek has two championship courses in one location with beautiful mountain backdrops.
We played the newly renovated Legend Course. It is an Arnold Palmer Managed Facility.
1885 Golf Club Drive
Palm Springs, CA
Canyon South Golf Course has some of the best maintained greens in this area. It is surrounded by majestic mountains and has over 1000 large trees. Since it is in the southern portion of Palm Springs, it is wind sheltered.
1097 Murray Canyon Drive
Palm Springs, CA 92262
Palm Desert Country Club is an affordable country club golf. The facilities are super and much improved under new ownership. It was built in 1961 and strategically placed bunkers and water hazards. It is a 9-hole course, and you can walk.
77-200 California Drive
(West of Washington/No. of Fred Waring)
Indian Palms Country Club has 27 championship holes. We were told that it is a favorite of locals because it is affordable. It has mature shade trees and elevated greens.
(A bit of History: President Dwight D. Eisenhower wrote his memoirs here!)
48-630 Monroe St.
Indio, CA 92201
Palm Springs Country Club was built in 1968 and is one of the least expensive of the courses we played. You cannot walk; you have to have a cart.
2500 Whitewater Club Drive
Heritage Palms Golf Club is a new course built in 1996 and extremely challenging. It requires precise drives.
80-0555 Fred Waring Drive
There were many more, but too many to mention.

We tried it, and it was great.
