Golf vacations in California are possible at many California destinations throughout the year, due to the Mediterranean climate afforded along the beaches and inland at the beautiful Palm Desert hotels and resorts. If you've not golfed California, you will enjoy the relaxed atmosphere that Californians enjoy as they soak up the sun during their course play, using golf not only for relaxation therapy, but also for its health benefits. California golf vacations can be as expensive as a one day course fee and hotel stay at the 17-Mile Drive locations such as Pebble Beach Golf Links where hotel guests on a budget can save on cart fees and get a round of golf with a night's stay for no more than $1000 to 2000 US. Prices on that same golf vacation for a one night stay and round of golf should you decide to upgrade to an ocean view room will cost around $500 additional. The course is one of the most popular in the world and receives visitors from around the globe who think they are worth this great experience.  The entire day with hotel room and course fees can sometimes cost less than green fees at resort properties. Most golfers take a golf vacation to splurge a little, however. They either go with their friends or take a spouse or mate and find a resort where there are other options and activities for the significant other so they can experience a guilt free day of golf. 

Silverado Golf Course Resort in Napa allows the rest of your group to go wine tasting while you are golfing, for instance. In Palm Springs, most golf resorts not only offer great courses, but also feature tennis courts, spas and shopping galore. So whether you are on a mission to golf or just on vacation,  There are some fantastic options in California to help you improve your game.
