There's not one, but two Pete Dye courses tied to the famed La Quinta Resort & Spa 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," TravelGolf.com 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 La Quinta's Mountain 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.La Quinta Mountain: Green No. 16
