A Round of Golf Fit for the PGA at the Scenic SilverRock Resort

Just as much as Hollywood’s desert hideouts are known for their glamour, the Coachella Valley is known for its history as a golf epicenter. Boasting a nearly immaculate record for blue skies all year around, if you can brave the sunshine, you can play golf in the Valley! SilverRock Resort’s Arnold Palmer Classic is a complete 18 holes at the base of the beautifully stark Santa Rosa Mountains. The course is world-class, having hosted the PGA tour’s Bob Hope Classic for four years. This epic Coachella setting doesn’t guarantee any improvement on your handicap, but it can definitely make you feel like you’re following in the footsteps of PGA Tour stars.

Vitamin IV Infusions at the Live Well Clinic: What You Get for Day-Drinking at Coachella

Day-drinking at Coachella Fest is traditionally a rookie move. After all, the Valley is part of the Mojave desert. There are a plethora of options to avoid the regret the next day, like getting into a private air-conditioned tent with your drink or the equally private pools. If you’re braving the desert heat and drinks, the Live Well Clinic in La Quinta offers innovative and effective ways to hydrate anyone in a pinch: For example, an IV infusion of vitamins and key nutrients directly to your billions of dehydrated cells. Live Well Clinic offers in-house and mobile options for your convenience. IV infusions are most recognizable in hospital settings being used to administer medication, but across the nation IV therapy is gaining popularity as a way to administer hydration and nutrients safely at a faster rate than oral consumption—day two here we come!
