With spectacular views of the surrounding mountains and the lush fairways, these homes feature a treasure trove of concrete screen block patterns and a profusion of fascinating desert plants. This first 18-hole golf course in Palm Springs was a magnet for TV legends. Walt Disney, Chuck “Rifleman” Connors, and David “Fugitive” Janssen were some of the stars who lived and played here. Sinatra would swing with his famous pals at this swanky resort, and chose to host his first celebrity invitational golf tournament on these greens. Influences of the Agua Caliente tribe abound.
