Golf Palmdale CA
If you’re a golfer, Palmdale and Lancaster offer some surprisingly good quality courses at affordable prices.
Rancho Vista Golf Course is the best in the area in my opinion (and I am a golfer), and is located on the west side of Palmdale, CA and is a Ted Robinson designed PGA golf course. This is an exceptional full eighteen hole public golf course. The practice facilities are very well kept. At the driving range, the wind is usually at your back so don’t be surprised when you seem to be hitting a bit linger than you really usually do. Their over five thousand square foot putting green is kept in great condition, and is very challenging (I don’t think there is a straight putt anywhere on that putting green). There is a seperate chipping green which is also very challenging. Rancho Vista Golf Course has several golf professionals that teach lessons there. There is a womens golf clinic but not for men. They have a great restaurant overlooking the golf course and waterfall at the end of the 18th hole. Weekly entertainment varies but in the summer there is usually a live band on Tuesday (taco Tuesday) and Karaoke on the weekend. Rancho Vista Golf Course and Clubhouse really feels like an oasis in the middle of Palmdale, with its’ lush green grass and water features.
Desert Aire Golf Course in Palmdale, is a full length nine hole golf course. The fairways are lined with Cottonwood trees which help cut down the wind and make for a beautiful course. You can see the Cottonwood trees from just about any real high point around Palmdale, CA. They have a great practice facility with a driving range, full size sand bunker, chipping green, and putting green. Desert Aire Golf Course is always having great little tournaments and games, and everyone is welcome. This course is beginner friendly, but also still challenging for the experienced golfer. The staff at this course are second to none. They are very friendly and helpful, offering clinics on weekends or private lessons as well. Sign up for their e-mail specials and you can play some very inexpensive rounds of golf at this course.
Rancho Sierra Golf Club in Lancaster, CA is another great local golf option. Just a few minuites from Palmdale, this makes for a nice change. This is a nine hole golf course unlike Rancho Vista which is a full 18 hole course. They have a really cool annual “Glowball” tournament. This is nine holes played after dark with glowing golf balls and glow sticks. This golf club also offers FREE golf clinics on certain Saturdays at ten a.m.
For those who aren’t looking for real golf, but possibly just some family fun I suggest playing a round of miniature golf at Mulligans’ Family Fun Center. This is a little tricky to find but it is generally located behind Lowe’s Home Improvement on 10th St. West and Rancho Vista Blvd. You can’t practice your putting enough (not that put-put is real practice) because as most golfers know we drive for show but we put for dough.$$$
