Hot in the Desert in Sept.

The PGA Stadium course is a beautiful course, but the temperature in Sept can soar into the 100s and they don’t allow swimming in the water hazards.  Except maybe for golf balls and those suckers refuse to float.

The PGA Stadium Course #golf

I’ve played all three of PGA courses in Palm Spring, Norman, Nickolas, and now the stadium course. As you can see it is a beautiful course, with plenty of challenges. The view isn’t so bad either.

The Hills Above Palm Spring #travelpictures

  This is looking down on Palm Springs. Very windy road, so not the best option of a trip if you get car sick.

Palm Spring, the Desert #Travelpictures

  We took a drive out of Palm Spring toward San Diego. As you can see it is rugged land. I can’t even image what pioneers though of when they travel through this area.

Flowers of the Rancho Las Palmas #golf

One of the things I appreciate on any golf course is the layout and the use of flowers and natural plants. Seeing as California is in a drought, this is especially important to the area of Palm Springs.
