Lost in Palm Springs

Rebecca and I spent the winter in Palm Springs, CA. Palm Springs is in a “desert” which means it’s sunny so there are “shadows.” It’s called Palm Springs so, you guessed it, there are “palms.” And, like most of the United States, it was once inhabited by “Indians.”

I get it, but does every golf course there have to have “desert,” “shadows,” “palms,” or “Indian” in the name? I’m over 60, I can barely remember my own name. But I’m supposed to remember which desert, shadows, palms, or Indian course I’m playing?

I played 26 different courses while we were there. Of the 26, seventeen (that’s 65%) had either desert, shadows, palms, or Indian in the name. And there were five courses that had two (eg: Indian Palms)!

And speaking of Indian Palms, they have 3 nine-hole courses: the Royal, the Mountain and yup, the Indian. […]
