The Palm Desert Country Club was first developed on property bordered by Fred Waring Drive, Hovley, and Washington Street. Since then, this community has grown outward and now has over 1,000 homes. This Palm Desert neighborhood features elegant living, beautiful scenery, and convenience.
The club’s nine-hole course was closed down two years ago and drought problems added to the problems of reopening it. As of 2015, plans were being made to possibly turn it into a condominium project with added recreation facilities. The club still offers a dining room that is open for lunch, dinner, and cocktails. And The Cactus Club is open with live music every Friday and Saturday evening during the months of September through May. The bar offers different kinds of music like acoustic-rock, Chicago Blues, and country. And it’s the only bar to show high definition NHL hockey all season.
There are a variety of homes and condos surrounding the Palm Desert Country Club but they all share the same mountain and valley views. Many homes have upgrades like kitchen appliances and granite countertops. Amenities include fireplaces, arched doorways, soaring ceilings, recessed lighting, surround sound, and ceiling fans. The back yards welcome guests with built-in barbecues and swimming pools. Public education is provided by the Desert Sands Unified School District which features top rated Palm Desert High. And the City of Palm Desert has eight private schools including Desert Adventist Academy Sacred Heart Catholic Academy, and the Learning Tree Academy.
Palm Desert grew considerably during the 1980’s and 90’s which resulted in some major upscale shopping areas like El Paseo Drive. This street has been compared to Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills because of its fashionable boutiques. The city has become popular for people escaping the colder climates up north and many people are settling down in this area.
