This is a new page this year with what I hope will be interesting facts and information about our beautiful Palm Valley Country Club.
- The Coachella Valley has 92 different golf clubs.
- The Coachella Valley has 139 different golf courses.
- Palm Desert has 26 different golf clubs and 38 different golf courses both of which is more than any other city in California!.

- For Opening day, November 12, the Club brought out 850 dozen new Srixon range balls for the driving range. The plan is to add 250 dozen more in January and 250 dozen more in February. The total will eventually be 16, 200 new range balls!
- Palm Valley Country Club has 22 lakes – which is more than The Lakes Country Club.
- We have a very rare double -headed palm tree right next to the 8th green on the Championship Course. Palm trees do not branch like other trees, so having double heads is the result of some sort of incident, like lightning or disease.

- The trees are predominantly 3 palm tree varieties, Mediterranean Fan , Robellini (aka Pygmy Date Palm) and Washingtonian (the ones that get trimmed every June).
