    Took a walk this morning in the Deepwell Estates area of Palm Springs at corner Sunrise and Mesquite. Had an invite to see Ken Venturiís mid century modern home which has been fully restored. Interior was amazing and owner talked about the parties Ken had with his best buddy...Frank Sinatra. Oh to have been a fly on the wall.

      Soooo cool. Where you staying? Or do you have a place down there? My brother and wife are visiting my folks in 7 Lakes at the moment, down until the 24th, if you need a golf partner.....

      I love walking around old Palm Springs. We also frequently do the hike up behind Sinatra's place....was under big renovation last we went by.

      Evening drinks at the Parker....such a cool back area. Rumour is a lot of L.A. folks go there for extra-marital trysts....easy to believe. If you haven't yet, go for a walk around the gardens, very secluded....at night, spooky almost......

        We stay at Sunrise Villas which is just across Sunrise, north of Deepwell Estates. Iím 5 minutes from Indian Canyons Golf Resort and a short walk to the Saguaro Hotel and Purple Room.
        Used to stay out in La Quinta at PGA West (14th fairway Stadium Course) but the residents are too vanilla and the golf course is noisy early in the morning when maintenance tends to the greens and bunkers.

        PS has such a great vibe and there is always something interesting going on.
        People are super friendly and welcoming.

          We purchased a property in PGA west last month and I just got back from my first chance to golf down there. We were looking at Hilton Head originally but like some one mentioned earlier the weather is just to unpredictable (I know they were talking MB but HHI is in the same boat).
          The weather was perfect, in the 90's every day but never felt too hot at all. We played The Golf Club of La Quinta (Trilogy), Silver Rock, JW Marriot and Shadow Ridge all from Underpar as we usually do 36 holes a day anyways. The other two days we played Desert Willow and two courses at PGA west, the Nicklaus Tournament and the Norman (didn't like it).
          Always check Underpar down there, especially if you play 36...there are some great deals. The Club at LQ was $99 and included lunch and a beer for two people.

            Awesome deal for the Club at La Quinta. No deals like that in March. How did you like Desert Willow, my fav in the desert?

              Always enjoyed playing Trilogy when we stayed in La Quinta. Now that Iím in Palm Springs itís just too far to drive...so many choices in the area. Both Desert Willow courses are excellent but green fees are on the high side.

                Just a quick note of thanks again to those in the thread with recs. Got back from PL this week and overall it was too short...

                Unfortunately, I only got one round in, and since we were staying at LQ, it was the Mountain Course. However, it came as advertised by many here and despite playing pretty poorly, I didn't seem to care!!

                Went out on a Monday AM solo and it was pretty quiet. By the 11th hole I had passed the first group of the day (four groups graciously let me play through) and had the remaining holes with no one in front or behind me. Pretty awesome, especially the 16th hole (IIRC) with elevation and a great view where I just chilled out there for a while before promptly missing the green by about 3 feet, which means I'm right in the rocks lol.

                I saw above someone was talking about a deal at LQ - I was positive the Saturday when using the practice facilities at Mountain Dunes two guys came out from their morning round saying they did something like $69 for the first round and got an afternoon tee-off for $30-40... actually, that might be the $99 deal lol anyways if I wasn't at a wedding and with infant in tow, I would have loved to get more rounds in. There were lots of last minute deals at good prices.

                  Glad to hear you at least got one round in and that it was the Mountain course to boot. Certainly a beautiful course and you're right, the 16th is breathtaking...quite literally if you take the walk up to the pro tees! That was the only hole I pared that day.
