SilverRock Golf Course


Tee it up with Dad at the beautiful SilverRock Golf Course in La Quinta for a day of fresh air, fun competition, and a day in the sun. Take advantage of the scenery around you and play a quick nine, or take your time and enjoy the full 18. Either way, bring out your inner Rory McIlroy and take in the day at SilverRock (and we won’t tell if you choose to play from the forward tees).

Wet n’ Wild


Cool down at the Wet n’ Wild water park for a fun activity that is surely different than last year! This is a great game plan for the dad who has little kids. With slides called “Tidal Wave Terror” and “Sea Snake, ” how can you not have a great time? It’s not often that we get to let go and be kids again, so why not make this Father’s Day one of the days that you do.
