I've got a trip to Indian Wells planned with some friends for the tennis tournament in early March. None of them golf, but there's no way I'm going to travel from Seattle to the Palm Springs area without my clubs. I'm thinking of doing a couple of 36 hole days (Thursday March 7th and Monday March 11th) plus 18 in the morning on Saturday March 9th. I haven't played in that area before, so where should I go? I don't necessarily want to break the bank, but I still want a solid experience. Based on what I've read here, I'm thinking Terra Lago and Desert Willow for the 36 hole days, and the Player course at the Westin Mission Hills in between. Any suggestions?

Rudyclub pretty much has the list dialed in. I might re-arrange the order as PGA West Nicklaus is my favorite in the area right after the two Indian Wells courses (Players & Celebrity).

For ease of 36 holes on the same property, PGA West Nicklaus and Stadium are good choices. It's always fun to play a course the pros play.

Rudyclub's list is dead on.

My 36 hole day preference would be (1) Indian Wells, (2) Stadium / Nick Tourney, (3) Desert Willow, (4) Terra Lago. All 4 are good.

WMH Player is fine, but it is more resort course and less desert course. Eagle Falls is an outstanding desert layout at a good price.

jamesph99 , During that time of year, you're going to find many if not all the courses in great playing conditions, and you probably don't have to hit the top courses for its conditions because just about every course are in tip top shape and they're all pleasurable to play in.

The recommendations above are great and there will be many more of it to follow, I'm sure, but a couple of the low key courses and a few $avers that are good to visit in my opinion are:

Cimarron Golf Resort (Boulder) - a bit linksy and not at all that difficult.
Desert Dunes Golf Club - tune in to the weather for wind - Canadian Open Q at one time - off the beaten path.
Desert Falls Country Club
Escena Golf Club - no driving range
Tahquitz Creek GC (Resort) - most greensfee includes a breakfast buffet

Enjoy your time!

(don't forget to bring shorts )
