The Coachella Valley -- a desert oasis framed by the Santa Rosa Mountains two hours east of Los Angeles -- becomes a hotbed of activity in winter thanks to more than 100 golf courses. Top clubs compete by catering to a customer's every need, including complimentary valet parking. When the mercury rises in summer, the green fees drop and the crowds disappear.
