Course address: 1097 East Murray Canyon Drive, Palm Springs

Of note: Once known as Canyon South, this course underwent extensive renovation by architect Casey O’Callahan that created new holes and gave facelifts to remaining holes.

Playing tip: The water along the right side of the fairway can be a problem for golfers who get too greedy here. There is a chance to lay up left on the second shot and still make a solid par.
