Golfing in the Coachella Valley
The Coachella Valley has been dubbed "The Golf Capital of America" by many, and it is easy to understand why this desert paradise is appropriately named. With over 100 golf courses available for public use and dozens of others either private or semi-private, the golf enthusiast will never want to leave this desert gem.
Our winter weather invites and in fact challenges the active adult to take advantage of being able to play every day on a different course. Winter rates range from around $25.00 for a municipal run golf course to over $200.00 for the most affluent of individuals. Many golf courses offer memberships ranging from monthly rates to a full year package, and yes, some even offer discounts to seniors and our ever popular "snowbird" residents.
Many courses are rich in history. Thunderbird, in Cathedral City, is the home course for people like former President Gerald Ford. PGA West, in La Quinta, has been the site for the Humana Professional Golf Tournament (formally, the Bob Hope Classic). Desert Willow in Palm Desert and Silver Rock in La Quinta are owned by their respective cities and are always open for public play. Of course, we cannot forget that the famous "Skin Games" have been played on the courses of Terra Lago, in Indio and Trilogy, in La Quinta.
While tee times are recommended, even required, during the winter months, summer play is almost always available and most often much more affordable. Dress codes are enforced in many of the golf courses in the Coachella Valley, so calling ahead is a good idea.
However! The easiest way to avoid tee times and excessive green fees is, of course, HOME OWNERSHIP! By taking advantage of the affordable housing prices in the Coachella Valley, then you too can be playing affordable golf!

BIG TIP: After deciding which course to play, you can call a discount broker such as "stand-by golf" and ask if they have any package deals!
