It is hard to believe California has the fewest golf courses per capita than any other state: one per 32,679 people. This dearth of links is not a problem in the Coachella Valley. There are over 120 courses to choose from. They range from municipal courses to exclusive private clubs. A beautiful example is the Desert Springs Golf Club. Their twin, 18 hole courses were designed by Ted Robinson. This highly-ranked property is managed by Marriott. The Santa Rosa Mountains in the background are lovely to admire while waiting to address the ball.
