Summer golf can be a challenge in Palm Springs. With the heat of the day it takes careful scheduling to avoid the worst of the daytime sun. If you’re going to play, sometimes a great option for golf is a quick nine holes and a bite at one of the great clubs in Palm Springs. Here’s where to Nine and Dine.
