The fourth quarter of 2021 has arrived. You’ve honed your game all summer long in the Northwest. The days were long and your rounds were memorable. The Mariners played meaningful September games, the Blazers made strides with their new coach, and the Kraken skated into their first NHL season. Halloween nears and the clocks will “fall back” soon. The college rivalry games are just weeks away. And for Northwest golfers, it will soon be “Inactive Score Posting Season.”

The fourth quarter is for scoring. The fourth quarter is for comebacks. And the fourth quarter is where legends are made. It’s time to grab a few teammates and make a fourth quarter road trip to the Palm Springs desert, where your California rounds can be posted all year round.

Use some airline miles or pack up the family truckster and make your way down south to the Coachella Valley, boasting over 120 courses and what we like to call “the legendary desert golf oasis.”

Leave the rain pants at home and pack your sunscreen.  Two of the best courses you can play in the Palm Springs area are at Desert Willow Golf Resort.

Desert Willow Golf Resort is a world-class public golf resort with nationally ranked courses that will deliver an upscale “Private Club”-like golf and dining experience. The Firecliff and Mountain View golf courses continue to provide two very different, yet exceptional desert golf experiences.

Test your skills against the natural hazards and myriad water features of the challenging Firecliff course, or play a smoother, more relaxing round on the magnificent Mountain View course. Desert Willow Golf Resort continues to be a must-play for domestic and international visitors, corporate and association groups, and men’s and women’s golf clubs from across the country and around the world.

The mile-long Desert Willow Drive sets the pace with views of manicured fairways and serene desert landscape. The experience continues as you enter the 33,000 square-foot clubhouse which includes the Terrace Restaurant, the Vista and Lobby Bar, the Firecliff Ballroom, and the Lakeview and Palm Desert Terraces.

Upon entry, a magnificent Dale Chihuly glass sculpture makes an impressive first impression – soon to be overshadowed by the vistas you can’t escape. The beauty of the courses, framed by the surrounding Santa Rosa Mountains, provide exquisite settings for weddings, awards dinners, corporate and association events. Restaurant and bar guests will drink in an unmatched setting with some of the most stunning views in Palm Desert while Desert Willow Golf Resort’s professional staff provides a friendly and comfortable atmosphere for golfers and non-golfers alike.

The Palm Desert Golf Academy at Desert Willow Golf Resort provides full-service golf instruction featuring instructors with local, regional, and national recognition. Specializing in 2- and 3-day Golf Schools, the Palm Desert Golf Academy offers state-of-the-art video computer swing analysis, golf fitness evaluations, TrackMan club-fitting technology, and teaches innovative swing drills accelerating the learning process, making it a great resource for every facet of your game.

The Palm Desert Golf Academy continues to be the leader in junior golf advancement with the “Fairway Kids” program and PGA Junior League.

For the new golfer, the PGA sponsored “Get Golf Ready” program will provide a simplistic approach to learning the game.

The Palm Desert Golf Academy provides a private, all-grass hitting area to practice Full Swing, a Short Game area that includes grass and sand bunkers, a chipping green, a pitching green and a large putting area. You will not find a better value in town or better practice area for every facet of your game.

Desert Willow Golf Resort is unlike any other Southern California golf vacation. You will see it in our staff, our two championship golf courses, our spectacular clubhouse, Palm Desert Golf Academy, weddings, meetings and special events, scenic outdoor dining and of course our incredible views of the surrounding Santa Rosa Mountains.

It is award-winning championship golf in One Legendary Location, on Two Unforgettable Courses.

The staff loves seeing the PNGA members venture south.  Make Desert Willow Golf Resort part of your fourth quarter travel plans.

See you soon! P.S.- Don’t forget to post your Desert Willow Golf Resort scores.
