The Quarry at La Quinta - La Quinta, CA
Out of all the golf in Palm Springs, The Quarry is the only course in the desert that has managed to creep into Golf Digest's Top 100. Located in the eastern part of the Coachella Valley, The Quarry, was an actual quarry until the late 1980's. In January of 1994, the Tom Fazio designed course would open for play. The course also features a par 3 course and an array of Frederic Remington sculptures thoughtfully placed throughout the property.
On Easter Sunday of 2017, I would tee it up with "The Most Interesting Man in the Desert," Channing Benjamin. Channing is a fellow golf photographer and from what I can tell, he knows just about everyone in Palm Springs on a first name basis. While Channing would bring his friendly demeanor, he would not bring his A game and I would clean up on the Nassau. You can see Channing's fantastic work here on his website.
