Join your LPGA Amateurs friends for this unique opportunity to play nine at O'Donnell Country Club in Palm Springs which enjoys the recognition of being the oldest course in the Coachella Valley. With a storied history that involves oil tycoons, water divining, oleanders, and Hollywood celebrities, this private course oozes that enticing Palm Springs vibe. It's also one of the most iconic courses, set in the shadow of the magnificent San Jacinto Mountains.

This fun event fills up fast since we are limited to 20 players. Please feel free to bring a friend to share the benefits of an LPGA Amateurs membership which includes playing on this private course.

After golf, we'll dine at a Palm Springs restaurant (no host) to be determined.
