There is also a resort and high-caliber restaurant within the golf club itself, with endless amenities, tequila tastings and opportunities to improve your game. 

La Quinta Mountain Course (Palm Springs, CA)

The constant sunshine, low humidity and comfortable temperatures put Palm Springs at the top of the list for best golf destinations.

La Quinta offers Group Golfing as well as first-rate instruction at its PGA West Golf Academy.

As one of the most popular golf escapes in the world, Scottsdale offers countless courses of all sizes and affordability. One of the area’s premier locations is Troon North, with two 18-hole courses stretching through the natural ravines and foothills in the shadows of Pinnacle Peak. Recent course renovations created two new layouts for the club for challenging and exciting desert play.

Maderas Golf Club (Poway, CA)

Located near San Diego, which has some of the most consistent and enjoyable weather year-round, Maderas winds through the cliffs, creeks and forests of north San Diego. The course layout is challenging, but fair, and the fairways are in pristine condition. The club offers excellent customer service.

Golf Club of Estrella (Goodyear, AZ)

Estrella’s par 72, 18-hole championship golf course features spacious greens and split-level fairways.
