Hey GK!

My dad, brother, and I will be out in La Quinta from 8/8 to 8/14 for a post California bar exam trip and looking for some course recommendations. So far we have PGA West Nicklaus on 8/8 and Stadium on 8/13. We have previously played Terra Lago North, La Quinta Mountain and SilverRock, and wouldn't be opposed to playing the latter two again, but I'm looking into other options as well.

I know that Desert Willow is a GK supporter and so we are thinking of playing at least one of those as well.

Obviously it is the heat of summer, so it will be miserably hot during the day and some courses are closed for maintenance, but we are trying to make the best out of it.

Any recommendations for hidden gems/must plays are greatly appreciated!

Good choice on Desert Willow.

Classic Club and/or Eagle Falls, but not if it's very windy.

Classic Club was on the short list, but sadly the course is closed from 7/4 to 8/31.

Will look into Eagle Falls!

Indian Wells Golf Resort Celebrity Course is a must. It will be fully recovered from its Summer maintenance then and pure as always. But even more pure since it would not have been played much since reopening after being closed for a month. Former host course of the LG Skins game. One of my favorite tracks and big supporter of our GK Community here.

Indian Wells (also a GK Supporter) and PGA West Nicklaus are my two go to courses while there. I know the "locals" rarely play Indian Wells but I highly enjoy it even if it is a "resort course".

Shadow ridge has more shade than most and is usually in pretty good shape in summer, both Indian Wells courses too.

For my $$$, the top 6 public courses in the Greater Palm Springs area are:
Desert Willow (Firecliff)
SilverRock
PGA West (Stadium)
Classic Club
Indian Wells (Players)
Indian Wells (Celebrity)

Next tier:
Marriott's Shadow Ridge Resort
Eagle Falls
PGA West (Nicklaus Tournament)
La Quinta (Mountain)

Solid under the radar courses:
Indian Canyons (South)
Escena
Desert Willow (Mountain View)
Mission Hills North (Player)

If you could line up any of the top 6, definitely play them. Fill in with any of the others and you will not be disappointed.

The goal has always been long and straight! But since I can no longer hit them long, hopefully straighter could be achieved more than occasionally?
