California golf vacation
by Lucas Simard

The desert city of Palm Springs in California is an exciting option for those of you who want their golf vacation to be complete. This means playing all the golf you always wanted to, as Palm Springs easily has over 100 courses for you to select from. Challenging all skill levels the classes are professionally executed and demand precision with thought for each of the holes.

Home to a host of golf celebrities, Palm Springs boasts breathtaking signature courses designed by them. Billy Casper, Harold Heers, Pete Dye, Ted Robinson, Gary Pranks have all had a hand at designing some of the topmost courses at Palm Springs. This desert city is blessed with sunshine for more than 350 days a year giving you the opportunity to make this a perfect golf getaway at almost any time of the year.

The Indian Wells golf resort was rated as one of the top 10 courses to play on by Golf Magazine. Well contoured greens, water hazards, a view of the Santa Rosa Mountains, makes it easily one of the best courses to play your game. The Mountain Vista golf course designed by Billy Casper is a 72 par championship course with 18 holes. Spectacular views, waterfalls, green fairways make this course fit for all levels of golfers. The golf club at La Quinta, a Gary Pranks creation, makes use of the natural beauty of the Coachella Valley. It has been the venue for the Skins Game more than once proving it to be a course of renown.

Rancho Las Palmas, is an equally attractive option and is a 27 hole course. The strategically placed bunkers, and exciting water hazards make this golf course happening among both the professional as well as occasional golfers. It also has good practice areas to get your swings right. On the other hand the Classic Club 18 hole course has beautiful rolling terrain and the pine, olive and pepper wood trees make a spectacular view against the surrounding mountains for you to enjoy your game.

If you are looking for a very challenging course go for the Desert Falls course as this features water hazards at 7 holes. This demanding course has tiered greens and has served as Stage 1 PGA qualifying place. If you want to unwind in relaxing terrains as well as enjoy your golf you have championship courses like the GC, Terra Lago North and the La Quinta Dunes. Or the stunning PGA West Nicklaus course and the PGA West Stadium course site, which has hosted events like the PGA Grand.

So the next time you want a golf vacation, with stunning vistas, challenging greens and clear blue skies, pack your bags and head to Palm Springs. Book your golf vacation package with a reliable tour operator so that the best deals are yours. A golf vacation planner will be able to tailor your tour with precision within your budget and give you the best golfing experience. All you have to worry about is playing a good game of golf with your buddies.

Product Description:
Over the past few years, perhaps due to an increase in work and family commitments, there has been a noticeable rise in the number of golfers interested in playing nine-hole courses. Although there are close to eight thousand such courses worldwide, how do golfers determine which are the best ones to play? In The Finest Nines, golf writer and historian Anthony Pioppi highlights the twenty-five finest nine-hole courses in North America and details how to play each one. Some of the courses featured include:

  • Whitinsville Golf Club―Whitinsville, Massachusetts
  • Sweetens Cove Golf Club―South Pittsburg, Tennessee
  • Birchwood Country Club―Westport, Connecticut
  • LivingStone Golf Course―Calgary, Alberta
  • Aetna Springs Golf Course―Pope Valley, California
  • And many more!

    This book also includes an interview with course designer and architect Mike Nuzzo about designing a nine-hole golf course in the modern era as well as profiles of courses that have a non-traditional number of holes.

    The Finest Nines is the perfect gift for the avid golfer who does not have the time to play a full eighteen holes!
