Golfers regard Palm Springs as one of the great centers of their sport, and indeed, this trendy desert city offers visitors some of the best courses in America. Two of the top-rated choices are located at the Cimarron Golf Resort: the challenging Boulder course and the more casual Pebble Course. The nearby Classic Club also has a number of excellent golfing options.
Cimarron Golf Resort offers two championship golf courses, the Boulder Course and the Pebble Course, both spectacular fairways under the skyline of the San Jacinto Mountains. Cimarron's accommodations offer all the amenities you need to feel at home.
Palm Springs was named for the natural hot springs that flow through the area, attracting movie stars and moguls.

At the end of the day, relax at the adjacent golf course restaurant, On the Rocks, named "The Best Place to Watch the Sunset" in Palm Springs, which is open on a seasonal basis.

Dining options in Palm Springs are a combination of diverse Angelino tastes and the inevitable influence from California's southern neighbor. The result of this confluence is nothing short of delicious. Las Casuelas Terraza has traditional favorites like pollo en mole (chicken with mole sauce) and camarones al mojo de ajo (shrimp in a butter and garlic sauce), and decidedly more Tex-Mex dishes like beef fajitas and enchiladas suizas. As one of the most popular Mexican restaurants in Palm Springs, Casuelas also boasts a selection of seventy-two different brands of tequila, many of which are distilled in nearby Baja California.
For steak lovers, the Chop House Palm Springs calls its fare the "Best Steaks in the Desert" and offers refined choices such as lobster bisque, Filet Mignon, and Chateaubriand, all from one hundred percent organic sources. If organic food is your thing, the king of locally-grown delicacies is the breakfast joint Cheeky's, which features a menu that changes every week to "adjust to whatever is freshest in the markets" and usually includes eclectic dishes like a truffle, ham, swiss cheese and black pepper scramble and a Tillamook cheddar and bacon waffle with chile maple sauce.
Palm Springs is located a little over one hundred miles east of Los Angeles and home to about 42,500 people. This area was exclusively the home of the Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians from about 1500 CE to the mid nineteenth century, when U.S. settlers began arriving. At first, Palm Springs was a dusty frontier town, but quickly seemed destined for something more. By the early 1900s, the town had become a tourist destination for visitors with health conditions that required dry heat to maintain. Then, twenty years later, the movie stars began arriving.
Named after the hot springs that flow nearby, Palm Springs has steadily grown from a sleepy Hollywood getaway spot to a bustling, energetic city that is now one of the most popular vacation destinations in the American West. For the last ninety years, this city has set the architectural trends that the rest of America follows and in the process become a glamorous desert retreat known for frequent celebrity sightings, elite tennis clubs, and lavish health spas. Palm Springs has also garnered a reputation as a first-rate golf destination and boasts some of the country's best courses.
