Palm Springs California is one of the ultimate vacation golf destinations in the world. Palm Springs is located in the beautiful Coachella Valley and just 110 miles from Los Angeles and 140 miles northeast of San Diego. The Coachella Valley is composed of eight cities; Palm Springs, Palm Desert, Cathedral City, Rancho Mirage, La Quinta, Indian Wells, Indio and Desert Hot Springs. There are approximately 120 private and public golf courses to choose from when planning your golf vacation.
Surrounded by the San Jacinto, San Bernardino and Santa Rosa Mountains the views from many courses are simply stunning. Choosing the time of year is important as the temperature in the summer can average 106 degrees. Even in those hotter temperatures you can arrange tee times early enough to be off the course before temperatures become too hot – and the green fees are much more affordable during the summer.
The population of Coachella Valley is approximately 160,000 people, but during the months of October through April the population can swell to as much as 300,000 as snowbirds flock to this Sonoran Desert paradise to enjoy cooler temperatures in the mid 70’s and fantastic golf experiences.
The Sonoran Desert also offers many unique and interesting sites and attractions to visit while here. When visiting, a must see attraction is the Aerial Tramway. This is a ten minute breathtaking journey up the face of the San Jacinto Mountains to an elevation of 8,516 feet from which you can see for miles across the entire Coachella Valley.
Visiting the Coachella Valley is a bucket list adventure for every golfer. You will not be disappointed in the number of golf courses you have to choose from or the quality of the golf experience. Just bring plenty of sun screen and a good hat, and don’t forget to bring your golf clubs. Another great golf community is Palm Desert Country Club.
