2013 Overseeding Schedule for Public Golf Courses in Coachella Valley


All of the courses in the desert region overseed their courses from Sept. – Dec.  Some clubs have more than one course and they stagger the schedule to allow play throughout the fall.  Other clubs with just one course will close for approximately one month during this time.  Each course has their own schedule, so please refer to the list below for the 2013 overseeding schedule.  Please call each club to confirm dates.  This information was provided to DesertCADDIE on Aug. 21st, 2013.

Following is an overseeding schedule for public courses located in Palm Springs, Cathedral City, Rancho Mirage, Palm Desert, Indian Wells, La Quinta and Indio, CA.

The Top 5 “Stay and Play” Desert Golf Resorts

The Top 5 List: Golf Resorts

La Quinta Resort

La Quinta Resort

The Top 5 Lists are based on the “unbiased” opinion of DesertCADDIE.com.  The Top 5 Golf Resorts are one of a series of Top 5 Lists that DesertCADDIE will be publishing. You may have your own favorites and if you can give an argument, maybe you can sway our thinking and get your favorite golf resort on the list. Just add your favorites or feedback at the end of this article using the comment tool or on Facebook.  We would love to hear your top picks.

#5 Eagle Falls and Fantasy Springs Resort and Casino

Great golf course, fun to play and great GPS systems in every cart.  Nice resort and casino with some great entertainment venues and excellent restaurants.  All the amenities needed for a great retreat.  Once you are there, you never have to leave.

#4  J.W. Marriotts Desert Springs Resort

Maybe one of the coolest resort properties in the desert.  Excellent restaurants, pools, hotel rooms and atmosphere.  The spa is second to none.  The golf courses are fun to play and nestled in a breathtaking setting.

#3 Indian Wells Golf Resort and Club

Perfect location along Hwy 111 in Indian Wells.  Close to all the action.  Two excellent Championship Golf Courses.  They have comfortable hotel rooms and views of the mountains. A huge clubhouse, good restaurants and relaxed atmosphere.

#2 Westin Mission Hills Resort

You’ve heard it before, but thanks to the Gary Player Course, this resort will stay up there on our list.  The Dye Course is nice too, but it doesn’t have the playable resort features that the Player has.  Westin Mission Hills is a resort property with  spectacular views.

#1 La Quinta Resort and PGA West

When they were separate, La Quinta Resort was an excellent property in itself.  The Mountain Course, which used to be private, was considered by many to be one of the best. Now that they have combined the resort courses of PGA West into their arsenal, you have to give them the nod as the all around “Best Resort.”
