The Desert Sun’s Top 100 holes
On these pages you’ll get a peek at 100 holes of premiere golfing in California’s Coachella Valley where world class fairways, greens, lakes and bunkers stretch from Palm Springs to La Quinta. Discover stunning vistas where tees are carved into the mountains and greens nestled between rocks, lakes and unspoiled desert scenery. Find out where to play on the fabled courses that challenged Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer and Phil Mickelson before you relax in the favorite watering holes of Bob Hope, Frank Sinatra, Gerald Ford and Bill Clinton.
Our golf guide features video instructions from Desert Sun Golf columnist Larry Bohannan to help you master his hand-picked selection of the valley’s top 100 holes, maps to plan your golf outing and tips on clubs that will give you an edge whether you live in the Coachella Valley year-round, are a seasonal resident or just visiting for a week or a weekend.
