Palm Springs Teaser continued for 2024 Golf Vacations


ZipinZ

Recommended Posts

Arrived in Palm Springs in time for a New Years party, rented a condo at the Desert Princess in Cat City, got settled in, did a Costco booze & grub run. Were here for 3.5 months, hiding from the cold Cdn winter, no place I’d rather be but in the desert with over 100 golf courses to choose from. Weather has been fantastic, Friday the vehicle said it was 80F while we were driving in Palm Desert.

For our friends Paul & Kathy, aka Vernon from Kansas City, and Kyle & Katie aka Double K from Calgary AB, as well as those planning a trip to the Palm Springs area, this thread will have lots of pic’s & will be a bit of a teaser until you arrive and get to experience the golf & night life for yourself.

Stay tuned & enjoy.

Cheers

David

 Happy New Year

Went to Escena & picked up my short stay membership, it's equivalent to a Residents Card & you can book on line with reduced green fee's. The fellas said the track & greens are the best in years, they got just the right amount of cool/warm/rain/sun and everything is greener than green.

Was fortunate to meet a fella who works at a local golf shop who got a demo Ping DLX Cart Bag from the Ping Tour Van that was used to store clubs & I scored this beauty for $125.00. Got out to the range at Desert Princess this afternoon.

Last year the range was brown in January, not this year.

The G80 still works, got it here last year, best little toy in the bag.

My Ping G400 lost some S/S & it's a bit rusty, need to work on my tempo & get some WD40.

After the range decided to go for a bike ride down to the wash area we're just east of the Palm Springs airport, convenient. The Desert Princess has 6 holes on the wash which is on Indian land & the negotiations are underway to renew the land lease, understand it's not going well, that's the the airport control tower not a maximum security pen.

AHU11R25C7EF.jpgValentines Day 2019 - Cimmaron and a number of other courses had significant water damage when we got close to 4" rain in one day. The fellas in the cart shed said they spent 8 busy months rebuilding and opened up the Bolder Course in November 2019 and their Pebble course a few weeks ago. It's come a long way & redesigned to hopefully miss some of the water that comes down from the Mtns & desert.

Found a Meyer Lemon tree it's a hybrid between a lemon & mandarin, very sweet lemon aid.

This lemon tree looks sick ..... don't touch!

Our neighbour who owns a typical 2 bedroom condo, obviously some pride of ownership.

That's our pool & hot tub, there's 1200 condos/villas in this gated community with 35 heated pools total, never crowded.

I wonder if the Desert Princess land deal is being used as leverage by the Band to help get the AHL Arena deal done?

Love the P.S.'s area. Can I ask how you booked the condo? VRBO, direct contact or ?? What kind of dollar value would one be looking at for that kind of "long-term" deal? I assume you have a 2 bed, 2 bath condo. This might be something I'll be looking at sooner than later.

Hi Socrates .... I see you changed the avatar & I miss the Peg a bit too, but not at this time of year. Not sure about the arena deal if I here something, I'll advise accordingly. I was told that the Condo Executive attempted to get a 1 year extension on the 6-7 holes located on Indian land in the wash area and offered something like $18K and the Band came back & said it wasn't enough it's now $60K, take it or leave it.

This is our 6 season down here, we drive & load up the SUV, we used local rental agencies, not VRBO or AirBB, in 2015 we paid $2300.00 USD Month for 1 bedroom there about 900 sq ft with 2 bathrooms, we've rented a 2 bedroom for $2800./month, but they now rent for over $3000. We're back in a 1 Brm & pay $2500.00 for an upgraded unit, next year it's $2600.00, we finally got to know the owner & no longer use an agency, they allow us to leave my bike & a large bin full of our stuff in the condos garage until we return next year, that's a bonus.

I can P/M you a few local rental websites, let me know.

Cheers

David .

The Band kinda has them by the shorthairs. It's not like you can find space for 6 more holes without turning the complex into a 9 hole venue which could kill the place. That's about $30-40 per unit per year more depending on what they pay now for the land use.

I'm likely about 3 years away from doing something similar. Maybe start with a few weeks and work up to months. Thanks for the info. Gives me a ballpark number to throw around.

It's been pretty mild here except for a couple of weeks in early Dec. Tomorrow it is back to the deep freeze for a while. Time to exit to a hot beach for a week.

Thanks for all of the great pics on this soggy Vancouver day. Will be there for Superbowl Weekend!

That's also a very nice google map of the courses. I also like this website for course pics and reviews. It's a little dated, but is good enough:http://palmsprings.twoguyswhogolf.com/reviews/palm_springs_golf_course_reviews.html

Needed a few more Grapefruit for the vodka, very handy tool that you can get at the local COD Market.

Paul, I booked my first T-Time, playing Escena on Wednesday, got some WD40 & more range time today, hoping it all comes together.

One year my game sucked so bad I went fishin in the pond next to our condo .... garage engineered Ap2 fishin pole.

I brought my 1 TB Memory stick with me, found all those pics that PhotoBucket lost of my favorite desert courses, will have to post a few to jog my/everyone's memory.

Cheers

Glad you were able to recover that cache of photos as there were some really good ones as I recall.

Can't wait to see 'em!

You have no idea how envious I am about playing Escena tomorrow.

I think we're gonna give it a shot here as it's supposed to be above 50 albeit breezy.

Probably not gonna do much better anytime soon though and there's colder weather and snow in the forecast for the weekend so.....

I assume that "rod" is graphite for greater sensitivity in detecting those light biting carp?

Definitely a keeper!

Fellas it was 77F here today but cooler weather is in the forecast.

Paul, my #3 fishin iron has a graphite/steel stiff shaft, those California Whitefish are scrappy fighters.

Went to the range in prep for tomorrow's game, the WD40 helped, starting to make more consistent contact on irons. Had to Tee the ball down a bit & was making much better contact with the driver, the impact labels sure help.

D-The Dunes course was my least favorite, as it was a little worn down. Top course was the Quarry at La Quinta, followed by the Stadium Course at PGA West, then the Norman Course at PGA West. Norman course was cool, as there was no rough, just playing golf in the true dessert.

Cheap booze. Phhtt. We have the cheapest booze prices in the world. You just go in, fill up and walk out. Can’t beat free!?

if that isn’t a case for Open Carry, I don’t know what is.

I always consider Escena a good "Day 1" course. Good for the day you fly in or fly out, but not quite as good as the better courses down there. We usually play it once per trip, typically on the day we fly in since its so close to the airport and not as expensive as some of the others. My favorites are: Indian Wells (Both), Desert Willow (particularly Firecliff), PGA West and Eagle Falls. EF is what I would consider a good hidden gem. Its cheap, typically not as busy, and often times its got the best greens. I love that course. The courses I don't care for in Palm are the La Quinta Resort courses (Dunes, Mountain). I really am not a huge fan of those ones. It feels so congested with people, houses, etc. I wish they had left SilverRock alone, it was a favorite of mine prior to the reno's. We will be coming back down in April and I cant wait!
