Nestled in the mountains in and around Palm Springs are some of the nation’s best golf courses. With more than 100 top-tier, skill-testing courses, a golfer could legitimately play a different Palm Springs golf course every day for months and not hit them all.
The area’s love affair with golf began in 1961 with the first course built inside the city limits, Indian Canyons Golf Resort. In the years since, the courses have only grown — in number, in size, in style and in complexity. Add in the area’s amazing restaurants, first-rate hotels, stellar activities and mountain views, and it’s easy to see how this golfer’s paradise came to be.
