While this pristine course caters to golfers of all levels, Mission Hills has qualified instructors on-site that you can book lessons with to improve your game if your ball keeps landing in the water on this water-heavy course.

Rancho Las Palmas Golf Course

Less than ten minutes away from Palm Springs, this incredible course is located just off Highway 111 and offers three courses, so soaking in the full beauty of these courses requires a few days.

The S at Rancho Mirage

One of the most beautiful courses in the Palm Springs area, The S was designed by Desmond Muirhead. Muirhead was named “the most innovative golf course architect of the last 100 years” by Golf World, and this course is a testament to that.

With no houses in sight and a majestic mountain backdrop, these 18 holes unfold beautifully through mature trees in a park-like setting.

Tamarisk Country Club

As soon as you set foot on the green at Tamarisk, you’re walking on history.

The second 18-hole private club in the Coachella Valley, Tamarisk may be a significant part of the reason Rancho Mirage is called “the playground of presidents.”

Eisenhower, Truman, Kennedy and Ford (who became a club member) all teed off at this renowned club.

And with 18 holes of breathtaking scenery, it’s not hard to see what they found appealing. Pristine fairways are complemented by lush palm trees, while transparent lakes reflect the sublime mountain range that serves as the background to this stunning course.
