Yes, golf is big in Palm Desert. At last count, more than 100 courses in the area. The Coachella Valley is also engineered for hiking (Joshua Tree National Park), shopping (El Paseo is the Rodeo Drive of the Desert) and tennis (host to an ATP tournament).

This place is absolutely the best. The décor and architecture are so impressive. If you have an appreciation for the details…this is the place. I also was so impressed with the common spaces – great amenities and because there are so few units, they are never crowded. We were there in peak season and the hotel was 100% occupied, but we often felt like we had the place to ourselves.

Our greatest surprise and satisfaction in our Club membership was discovering the Club location in Palm Desert. At the time be became members we skiied and boarded, but did play golf. That has changed with my son's interest in golf. We now stretch our points usage regularly at this lovely desert oasis during off season. The Desert Willow Golf Club's "Mountain View" 18 hole course (which incircles the Club location) has become a favorite of ours, along with the Desert Falls Golf Course, across the street on the east side of Cook St.
Personally, we would like to wish the best of Health, Happiness and Success to all who work or vacation with Club Intrawest and their love ones, from Dave, Bonnie, KB and Rye in So Cal.
