This past winter, on one of those dreary days in Los Angeles, I decided to head to the desert for a little sun in the fun and a round of golf with my pals.

One of the places that was recommended to me was the Tahquitz Creek Golf Resort located in Palm Springs. This resort is owned by the city and managed by Arnold Palmer’s company. With a great clubhouse and some of the most reasonably priced golf in the area, it is now a mandatory stop on my desert golf vacations.

Tahquitz Creek Golf Resort is one of the premier public golf courses in the desert. It provides world-class golf facilities along with being located right near the Palm Springs International Airport. I was quick to learn that both courses were highly intelligent and bring their own obstacles to bear.

Owned by the city of Palm Springs. Tahquitz Creek Golf Resort offers two courses. The Legend Course, the older of the two, is a favorite of the Palm Springs locals. This course is distinguished by the 40 new bunkers that have been added, the tree lined fairways that have been recently renovated, and severely sloped greens from back to front. The smaller of the two, it plays to 6,600 yards and is a par-72 course that is better set for a little fun which I was entertained to along with the spectacular views that surrounded me.

All skill levels will enjoy playing on this course. This breathtaking and stimulating golf course is just a few steps away from such amenities as a driving range, putting area, a short game area, a golf shop, and Traditions Cafe.

In addition to the Legend course, there is a Ted Robinson designed course known as the Resort Course. This course debuted in 1995 and features rolling terrain that I welcomed, well placed bunkers, exciting waterscapes, and tremendous mountain views of the San Jacinto Mountains. Equipped with four sets of tees it is over 6,700 yards; Golf Digest rated Tahquitz Creek Golf Course as “One of the Best Places to Play.”

There are a variety of very reasonable golf packages. So if you are looking for a great golf vacation and enjoy not only the scenery of the desert, but a fair and challenging golf experience the Tahquitz Creek Golf Resort is the place for you.
