One- or Two-Night Stay with Option for Golf at The Welk Resort Desert Oasis in Greater Palm Springs, CA

Give as a Gift

Quiet Desert Property Surrounded by San Jacinto Mountains

When autumn comes to Palm Springs, temperatures drop to the mid-80s and many golf courses begin temporarily closing for course maintenance to prepare for winter. Not so at The Welk Resort Desert Oasis, where the Cathedral Canyon Golf Club's grounds stay open—and green—deep into the fall. Thanks to a process of careful over-seeding, players can continue taking on the strategically placed bunkers, rolling hills, and 16 lakes of the club's more than 6,500 yards of golfing well past Labor Day. The course boast sweeping views of the snowcapped San Jacinto Mountains and the surrounding Mojave Desert.

The hotel’s secluded location far from the hum of the highway lends the place a tranquil atmosphere. You can relax by the pool or grab your racket and head to the tennis courts. Inside the one-bedroom villas, a gold, orange, and brown color scheme echoes the scene outdoors. If you’re hungry, you can whip up a meal in the kitchen, fully stocked with cookware, or head to the clubhouse (hours vary by season) for sit-down dining. Downtown Palm Springs, with its many restaurants and famed shopping, is only a 10-minute drive away.

Palm Springs, California: Desert City with Outdoor Recreation and Hollywood History

Nestled in the Coachella Valley in southern California, Palm Springs has fallen in and out of fashion over the past two centuries. The desert city, which boasts a strong Native American influence, remained relatively unknown up until the 20th century, when Hollywood A-listers flocked there for its temperate weather and tucked-away feel. Word spread quickly, and by the 1950s and '60s, the landscape was dotted with tennis courts, swimming pools, and flashy modern homes owned by the likes of Elvis and Frank Sinatra.

Though it experienced a lull at the turn of the century, Palm Springs has emerged once again as a vacation hot spot. The sun shines there roughly 350 days a year, which makes it easy to go hiking or golfing on one of the many designer courses in the area. Luxury spas and boutiques fill the glitzy downtown area, where a retro vibe survives in the architecture of many homes and hotels.
