They don't call Palm Springs the "golf capital of the world" for nothing. Not only are there more than 100 courses in the greater Palm Springs area, but they are also among the world's most beautiful. In fact, if you watch golf tournaments on television, you've already seen many of them. They star in the highly-rated network golf special.
Tennis is the sport that originally built Palm Springs. Movie stars Charlie Farrell and Ralph Bellamy began their famed Racquet Club in Palm Springs to attract their Hollywood friends. Be warned, however, the gorgeous mountains in the background may play havoc with your concentration.
If you are lucky enough to have a long visit in Palm Springs, there are some delightful nearby excursions worth checking out.
