How to pack your golf clubs?
The worst thing you can do for your clubs is to leave them unprotected when you travel. If you don't believe me, just watch how rough baggage handlers treat luggage when they load bags on and off the plane. They don't mean to be rough on the job but these bags are heavy and the best way they can get them on and off the belt is to throw luggage around.
I have seen too many travellers check in their golf bags as-is, without a travel bag to cover and protect the clubs. Travel bags come in a variety of styles and weight. The better ones have padding around the top, to protect the clubs. And even with a travel bag, you should buy those stiffeners to prevent your sticks from being snapped in half.
Also when you pack your clubs, make sure the clubs are secured and not shifting around. Get some covers for your irons and be sure to put the head covers on for the driver, fairway woods and hybrid. Any clubs that are going are to rub against each other will be scratched and damaged.
In this day and age of flying, it is ridiculous to pay for luggage. To save on costs, try to buy a travel bag that has lots of pockets or have extra room to put a cart bag inside. You want extra space to store a few pairs of pants, golf shirts, golf shoes and your toiletry bag. You might want to leave some room for souvenirs to bring back too.
Where to play in the desert?
Everyone thinks playing in the desert means you have to navigate tumbleweeds, sand and lots of sand. Take a look at Indian Wells Celebrity Course in Palm Springs and be amazed at the lush fairways and the surrounding landscape. There are two championship courses at the Indian Wells Golf Resort and both are equally challenging but most players prefer the Celebrity course over the Players course. I've played both and think that the Celebrity course is a lot tougher because the layout is more trickier than the straight forward layout on the Players course.
