If there's one thing that draws visitors to Palm Springs, it's golf. The Coachella Valley's championship courses have attracted celebrities and pro golfers alike, with names like Frank Sinatra, Bill Murray, Bill Clinton and Phil Mickelson representing only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to big names who have teed off in the desert. Renowned golf architects like Pete Dye and Arnold Palmer keep everyone on their toes when playing in the desert, and the quality of the local courses have even attracted annual golf tournaments like the Humana Challenge (formerly the Bob Hope Classic) and the Kraft Nabisco Golf Championship (formerly the Dinah Shore Golf Tournament). Palm Springs is also a regular stop for the PGA Tour.
But you don't have to be a celebrity or a professional golfer to enjoy the greens in Palm Springs. You do, however, need to be prepared. Lucky for golfers visiting Palm Springs, there are plenty of top notch golf pro shops throughout the Coachella Valley. Longstanding local institutions like Lumpy's and Pete Carlson's Golf & Tennis Shop are favorites among locals and visiting golfers alike, though high-end facilities by the likes of Callaway at the IW Club and TaylorMade at the JW Marriott Desert Springs are hard to resist.
