Discovery Stay

You may be enjoying the unusually robust and colorful bloom in the desert this winter, but you don’t have to wish for the rainy weather that comes with it to see Caliente Springs in velvety green. Instead, just visit our nine-hole, par-three golf course, which is open to residents of Caliente Springs and Sky Valley, along with your guests. Our three miles of play challenge golfers with 67- to 117-yard greens, interspersed with spectacular views of the San Jacinto and San Bernardino Mountains. So get ready to work on your short game and master the links!

Wondering what all the fuss is about? If you have never tried golf, it may just seem like a stroll in the grass. But there is a lot to love about a sport that can be enjoyed equally by men and women, young and old, the sporty and the portly. Fall in love with golf this winter by celebrating the unique aspects of the game. Golfing our course leaves time to take in the majestic mountain views on the open green. Walking the course and practicing your swing provides great exercise, but doesn’t require previous fitness.

Meeting other golfers is perhaps the most pleasant experience of all. There is no other sport that makes so much time for social engagement while the ball is in play! Even if you arrive alone at the pro shop, you can certainly find strangers to walk the green with, swapping stories and making friends along the way. Caliente Springs’ organized group play sessions make it even easier. Arrive at 8:30 am on Tuesdays for Ladies Day, 8:00 am on Wednesdays for Men’s Day, or 11:00 am Thursdays for Beginners Day.

If you’re new to the sport, begin by visiting to the pro shop to sign up for a lesson from Kim Kleinle, our resident PGA-certified golf pro. Kim’s 18 years of experience as a student-centered instructor have given her the insight and experience to help all levels and types of students improve their game. She offers beginner-friendly and affordable group classes and individual lessons, geared just to your level. With just a few lessons, a beginner can have the basics down flat; from there, each golfer chooses their own goals.

However, the Caliente links aren’t just for the novice. Kim’s individual lessons lend her expertise to players looking to get to the next level, too. Put Kim’s tips into practice on your own at our driving range, or test your putting accuracy at the practice green, both of which are near the pro shop. Seasonal and monthly passes are available, to help you make practice a part of your daily routine. Our uniform, high-quality practice balls, grass tee, and well-marked targets are great for serious golfers who want to get the details right before playing the course.

Experience the course that thousands of desert golfers already have. The sooner you start swinging, the closer you are to your first hole-in-one!

Caliente Spring’ golf course is open 7:00 am–3:00 pm, seven days a week, from November 12–April 15. Call (760) 660-4522 for more details.
