Course Review: Andalusia Country Club

On Thursday, I attended the SCGA member outing at Andalusia Country Club. It is also known as Andalusia at Coral Mountain, which is the name of the high-end residential community in which the course/club is situated. This was the first stop on the SCGA's annual Bob Hope Trail, though it was the only round I... Continue Reading →

Course Review: O’Donnell Golf Club

This past Sunday, I had the rare opportunity to experience a true piece of golf history in the Coachella Valley. O’Donnell Golf Club in Palm Springs is the oldest active course in the valley, with its roots dating back to the 1920s. O’Donnell is a private club with a very small membership base, so it’s...

A Return to Bighorn

This morning, I was back home in Southern California adding a new private club to my growing local list. I played The Springs Club in Rancho Mirage along with a few friends. We had gone in together for a silent auction round here when playing in the tournament at Lake Arrowhead CC a little while... Continue Reading →

Hot, Hot, Hot

Saturday represented my third weekend in a row heading out to the Coachella Valley and it seems to keep getting hotter with each visit. Really, the reason I went back this time is because I had mistakenly left some things behind the week before at Indian Palms Country Club. However, a friend was playing Desert... Continue Reading →

Digging Deeper into Obscurity

This review is a little late because I accidentally left my camera (among other things) behind at Indian Palms last week and had to wait until this weekend to go and pick them up. It’s no surprise I was a bit forgetful after a very hot, yet fairly productive, day in the desert. The day started... Continue Reading →
