Registration open for 2nd Annual Palm Springs Golf Championships
Palm Springs in January is every golfer's dream. Daily highs are between 65-70 degrees. Most, if not all of the Coachella Valley's 100 courses are in peak condition. So it only makes sense that the Palm Springs Amateur Championship is returning to PGA West (Norman, Nicklaus, Stadium), La Quinta Resort (Dunes, Mountain), and Mission Hills CC (Palmer) for a second year.
The 2nd Annual Palm Springs Golf Championship is hosted January 4-8, 2020, one week before a major PGA Tour event, The Desert Classic. This championship consists of both a Gross Division & Net Division.
The Gross Division will challenge PGA West in PGA Tour condition. You will play it like the pros!
The Net Players Divisions will play Monday and Tuesday on the Dunes and Mountain courses at La Quinta Resort & Club. The Mountain Course at La Quinta Resort & Club is the former host site for the annual PGA Tour's Q-School. The Championship round will take place at the Mission Hills Country Club - Arnold Palmer course, "the King's" first course in the Palm Springs valley.
