There's not one, but two Pete Dye courses tied to the famed PGA WEST Pete Dye in La Quinta. The Mountain Course truly steals the show though. This is target golf under and sometimes right up against mountains.

The No. 1 handicap hole isn't some long, boring par 5, numbing even as it messes up your scorecard. Dye defies that convention and gives you a 400-yard, par 4 (No. 6) with two forced carries and water to right, the better to gobble up any wayward approach shots that somehow miss rocks.

"This is a course worth working into any Palm Springs area trip," West Coast Bureau Chief Chris Baldwin said. "It doesn't receive the acclaim and disdain of its close neighbor and fellow Dye TPC Stadium course, but it's actually a more consistently enjoyable play.

It wows you with its views and then forces you to make shots. Nothing's given in game. Those mountain vistas are earned with your shot-making sweat."

#15 on PGA WEST Pete Dye Mountain Course is laying along the base of the mountains - stay tight to the base and go for this par 5 in two. The green stays snug up against the base and will not be in full view.A view of hole #6 at PGA WEST Pete Dye Mountain CourseView of the 16th green at PGA WEST Pete Dye Mountain Course.
