Palm Springs Golf

La Quinta Dunes Course

Playing the La Quinta Dunes Course was a special treat for me. The sun cast a beautiful array of colors against the desert mountains and perfectly still course lakes in the early morning.

A companion course, called the Mountain course is said to be more interesting and challenging than the Dunes course. I hope to try it the next time I'm at La Quinta.

La Quinta Dunes Course No. 17

Some of the most scenic and luxurious golf courses in the Palm Springs area are found near La Quinta, about 45 minutes by car Southeast of downtown Palm Springs. Several such courses are at PGA West and La Quinta.

No. 17 is the signature hole for the La Quinta Dunes course and is considered to be one of the toughest holes in America. The hole is long and hugs the backside of the largest lake on the course. The whole course was pretty challenging for me.
