Palm Creek is a remarkable place and the trees, lush green grass, and water are quite a surprise located in the desert. This is near the entrance of the park and is a delightful area.
The entry gate is staffed 24 hours a day by folks who go out of their way to welcome you. Of course, this also ensures security which is also a nice plus. Turning into the park among the flowers and trees is very relaxing.
After you pass through the gate, you will immediately see the excellent golf course. Rick is standing near the green on #7, which is 195 yards long and offers a sporty challenge when trying score a par 3. The grass was recently re-seeded for winter grass (rye, we think) and is really looking great.
Rick is looking at some of the many flowers that are planted each season near the walks and lakes. Yes, there are several lakes here in the desert!
This walkway connects the sixth hole with number 7 and passes a small stream and group of palm trees. If you have had a tough day so far on the course, this calming walk is very welcome!
Rick has really enjoyed this practice area and putting green near the clubhouse. This is a great place to brush up on chipping and putting in preparation for play. We will be starting group play next week, so Rick is trying to get the rust off his game (and hopes there is something good remaining!).
