Palm Springs is a desert oasis unlike any other. Set just 100 miles east of Los Angeles in the Coachella Valley at the foot of several mountain ranges, Palm Springs is actually made up of 8 smaller cities including La Quinta, Indian Wells, Rancho Mirage and Palm Desert. For years, it has been a retreat for Hollywood celebrities because of the hub’s dry heat and luxurious resort hotels.
Though many come here just to sit by the pool with a cocktail in hand, world-class golf has long been a hallmark of Palm Springs. Major golfing events such as the PGA TOUR’S Bob Hope Chrysler Classic, LPGA’s Nabisco Championship and the Skins Game are conducted here each year. Since the area has rain only 15 to 20 days per year, you have plenty of opportunity to enjoy over 110 courses in the beautiful sunshine and bright blue skies.
