ABOUT THE COVER: Sunset view of new Desert Island Country Club in Cathedral City, a flurry of gold-rimmed clouds mirrored in the waters of a 25-acre lake surrounding the unique condominium complex. Desert Island, whose $750,000 clubhouse was festively opened Oct. 27, is another elegant addition to the growing number of residential/recreational developments in the "Golf Capital of the World." Photography by Gerhard W. Julius.
