Tradition Golf Club, La QuintaA number of Palm Springs area private golf and country clubs recently seemed to wake up to the fact that desert home buyers, and prospective home buyers are seeking better values for golf and country club memberships–just as in real estate.

Each private club wants to keep its membership ranks as full as possible. And it’s often a balancing act in adjusting prices to meet market conditions. The good news for prospective club members is that there are some very attractive programs at some of the best private clubs in the desert. Membership prices have likely not been this good in over a decade.
