Footgolf at Desert Willow
A combination of golf and soccer, footgolf offers two ways to feel like a klutz, but at least you get a cardio workout. You play with soccer balls and 21-inch diameter holes, and rounds can range from 90 minutes to three hours on an average hole length (about half the length of a traditional golf game).

Play in summer without fear of heat stroke, courtesy of the City of Indio. This is the only course in the Coachella Valley lit for night play. Hole length on the par-3 course ranges from 110 to 230 yards. If your round was more frustration than fun, maybe the vast tequila bar at nearby Pueblo Viejo Grill can soothe what ails you. It’s one of the most popular Mexican restaurants in the Coachella Valley.
