New York, NY (PRWEB) January 10, 2007
Gary Player Signature Course at Mission Hills and Desert Willow Firecliff Course are the best conditioned golf courses in the Palm Springs area, TravelGolf.com declares in the first story in its series of 2007 Best Of stories. This series will answer the questions golfers want to know most from the world's top golf destinations.
The story detailing which golf courses are in the best shape in the entire Coachella Valley was published Monday, Jan. 8 on the TravelGolf.com network of Web sites, giving readers an in-depth look at course conditions in this longtime golf hotspot (http://www.travelgolf.com/departments/clubhouse/2007-palm-springs-best-conditioned-golf-courses-4889.htm). It was written by West Coast Bureau Chief Chris Baldwin, who has spent extensive time in the region, reviewing and comparing its golf courses.
"There's no question that average golfers truly care about course conditions," Baldwin said. "Survey after survey shows that it's a make or break issue for golfers. And if actually talk to golfers out on the courses, those results don't come as a surprise.
Yet almost all the major golf publications completely ignore or gloss over if a course is in good shape or not. This story is just part of the steps TravelGolf.com is making to fill that information void. And it's fitting we're starting with Palm Springs. The golf courses there can get competitive as the Michigan-Ohio State football rivalry over who has the best course conditions."
Only one golf course can be No. 1 though and that distinction goes to Gary Player Signature Course at Mission Hills. "Martha Stewart might be willing to go to prison again in exchange for learning how to keep her garden as green as these fairways," Baldwin wrote of Gary Player Signature Course.
Desert Willow Firecliff, The Classic Club, Greg Norman Course at PGA West and Indian Canyons Golf Resort round out the top five.
"No one's championed the importance of course conditions more than Chris Baldwin," Executive Editor Mark Nessmith said. "He's written columns about the issue and just as importantly, backed up his words by being unafraid to write which courses are in good and bad shape in his reviews. This is a natural start for TravelGolf.com's 2007 Best Of series.
"We're excited to be addressing issues that golfers cannot find talked about anywhere else. The Best Of series will span the entire gamut, from the best courses for big hitters, to the courses which treat junior golfers best to the top clubhouse bars. All the things that recreational golfers debate amongst themselves, but no one seems to write about."
