I think probably all? the Palm Springs courses over seed in the fall. So by December, every course in the area should be lush and green.

Indian Wells Celebrity is a very beautiful course after fall over seeding. Not only emerald green from wall to wall, but they plant tons of seasonal flowers.

Some courses create a great contrast by over seeding the tee boxes, greens and fairways with rye grass so they are lush and emerald green. Several do not over seed the Bermuda rough, and when it goes dormant, the tan Bermuda rough right next to the ultra green rye fairways create a great visual contrast. The last few years, PGA West Stadium and Nicklaus Tournament and Mission Hills Player and Dye have done this.

The quality of the Bermuda is much more consistent and better @ the two PGA West courses.

The courses that over seed everything can have some deep, nasty rough with all grass between the boundary walls lush and green. The contrast with the palm trees, native areas and the mountains in the background can be sensational for anyone not used to over seeded courses.

The goal is long and straight! But since I can no longer hit them long, could I at least hit them straighter?

Fall colors? California? We get YELLOW and BROWN in Southern California. If you want a more varied palette you'll have to go north! If you are good with yellows Morongo/Tukwet Canyon turns and the greens and fairways stay nice.

Utah in SLC and South. Otherwise go to N England. But a little late. Lets face it, CA is not the destination spot to see fall colors.

The closed courses I used to play, would have about a dozen or so cottonwoods, elms and birch mixed in with their primary trees. These would change and peak at different times in fall, but they would impress and be enjoyed. Especially when you walk the course...I seem to notice more when I walk, or play alone. Hmm.
If you think a course has at least a dozen or more trees that impress during a fall round, please list...I will appreciate it. Cheers,

There is the Golf Club of California which is in North County San Diego. Their logo is a leaf in fall colors. I have not played it in a while but there are numerous trees that change with fall. Course is kinda tight and firm for my taste.
