National Housing MarketThe National Real Estate Outlook
Home prices increased across the country in 2019 and experts predict the National Housing Market will remain strong through 2020 in the January Forbes article: “Five Housing Market Predictions for 2020” they cite crazy rents in the luxury apartment market is driving Millennials to buy instead of rent.  More aging Baby Boomers are expected to sell their homes looking to transition into smaller homes with less maintenance.  Some estimates say as much as 27% of the housing inventory in the country could hit the market between now and 2040, easing the housing shortage.  The National Association of Home Builders report home builder confidence is at a 20 year high, paving the way for a boom in new home construction.  That combined with low mortgage rates the outlook for 2020 is strong.

CA Homes Map

California Real Estate Outlook
The median home price in California was up about 4.1% in 2019, while the number of sales were down slightly.   The California Association of Realtors forecast a similar uptick in prices through 2020. Housing affordability, (just 32% of households can afford a median priced home),  and low inventory have been an ongoing challenge in California, mortgage interest rates at near historic lows are giving home buyers more buying power.

2020 Riverside County Date Fair

2020 Riverside County Date Fair

2020 Riverside County Date Fair & National Date Festival dives into the date, the hallmark of the Coachella Valley’s farming culture. Akin to what Mid-Century Modern architecture means to the Greater Palm Springs Area’s real estate realm, the date is synonymous with the Coachella Valley. These delicious fruits are a product of the date palm, which comprises a big portion of the Southern California desert’s agricultural industry.

Get a taste of the delectable date, and the Coachella Valley’s rich culture, at the 2020 Riverside County Date Fair & National Date Festival, taking place February 14-23 at the Riverside County Fairgrounds in Indio. This event offers fun for the whole family, including nightly entertainment from renowned music artists to monster trucks, demolition derby, and a recurring Arabian Nights musical. All the live entertainment is paired with carnival rides, a livestock fair, rodeo, food, and craft vendors.

2020 Riverside County Date Fair

The Riverside County Fair and National Date Festival started as a celebration for the end of the annual date harvest in the Coachella Valley. The event today remains true to those agricultural roots as well as an Arabian Nights theme developed decades ago and is still represented by nightly pageants. So in addition to fair favorites like animal exhibits and monster truck rallies, you’ll also be able to enjoy Camel and Ostrich Races and cooking demonstrations featuring dates. Musical entertainment and carnival rides add to the appeal of this diverse county fair.

Dates were an unknown commodity in the valley until 1903 when date palms were transplanted here from Algeria. By the early 1920’s, enough acreage was planted to make dates a major crop for the area. In fact, the date industry represented Riverside County at the 1915 World’s Fair in San Francisco. Date groves in the Coachella Valley were such a novelty that they became quite a tourist attraction.

2020 Riverside County Date Fair

With the popularity of the date gardens, the idea was planted for a date festival to be held in Indio City Park in 1921. The heavily publicized International Festival of Dates was promoted with an Arabian theme, a reference to the ancestral homeland of the date. A second festival was held the following year, but the interest for an annual fair waned. Instead, date agriculturalists promoted the crop at events such as the Southern California Fair in Riverside, the California State Fair and the Golden Gate International Exposition.

Today, the Riverside County Fair & National Date Festival remains an integral part of the greater Coachella Valley community and a major tourist attraction. It continues the legacy of decades-old desert traditions while celebrating the desert’s history and community, and of course, providing enjoyment fo the whole family.

Palm Desert Golf Cart Parade 2019

Palm Desert Golf Cart Parade

Don’t miss the 55th Annual Palm Desert Golf Cart Parade when it steps off on El Paseo on the last Sunday in October. Pint-size floats, all built to interpret this year’s theme of “Let the Good Times Roll.” Since the early 1960s, this festive parade has been a favorite around town. And while it once had a “Christmas in July” theme, the Palm Desert Golf Cart Parade is now an annual – and highly anticipated  late October event.

With a full list of activities planned, including the Palm Desert Rotary Pancake Breakfast, a Golf Cart Show, a Kids’ Play Zone and more, families can experience an entire day of festive fun.

The parade itself starts on Sunday, October 27, 2018 at 12:00 p.m., and the parade route will follow El Paseo, westbound, from San Luis Rey to Ocotillo. Finding a place to park won’t be a problem since there are several parking lots and a parking structure in the area.

Palm Desert Golf Cart Parade

Palm Desert has upped its sponsorship of the annual Golf Cart Parade, allocating $40,000 to the chamber of commerce to hire a consultant and breathe new life into the city’s signature event. This year’s event marks the 55th Golf Cart Parade, which generally draws thousands to El Paseo for a Sunday of entertainment and activities. It also is an annual fundraiser for the Palm Desert Area Chamber of Commerce, which organizes the event.

“The Golf Cart Parade is part of the city’s identity” Jonathan said at Thursday’s meeting. “It’s all about having good fun that has a sense of humor, but also brings the community together. We urged the chamber to bring it up to the next level and I feel we have a responsibility to support that effort financially.”

Palm Desert Golf Cart Parade

It might look simple, but rolling a fleet of golf carts down El Paseo isn’t easy. “It’s kind of like the duck on the water,” Palm Desert Golf Cart Parade co-chairman Mike Hardin explains, “where you paddle underneath and it looks real smooth on top.” He and about 15 fellow committee members spend up to 10 months planning and executing the ever-growing event, which includes children’s activities, food trucks, and a classic car show. However, everyone is there for the main affair: delightfully decorated golf-cart floats.

The parade has been a Palm Desert institution for 55 years, beginning when residents at the Shadow Mountain Club decided to doll up their golf carts.

2019 Coachella Valley Golf Course Over Seeding Schedule

2019 Coachella Valley Golf Course Over Seeding Schedule

Coachella Valley Over Seeding ScheduleYIKES!  Are you waiting for the grass to grow while all the Coachella Valley Golf Courses close for Over Seeding?

 

 

 

 

Not to worry, we have the 2019 Coachella Valley Golf Course Over- Seeding Schedule here!

If you’re unfamiliar with the Phenomenon of our Desert Golf Course Over Seeding, here are the basics of what you will see happening on our local courses over the next couple of months.

2019 Coachella Valley Golf Course Over Seeding Schedule

Coachella Valley Golf Course Over Seeding Schedule for 2019

Currently, our local golf courses have warm-weather Bermuda grass on the fairways and tees and almost every course in the desert has some Bermuda on their greens.

Bermuda grass goes dormant and turns brown during the cooler winter months. So to keep the courses green and playable, they cut the Bermuda grass so short it’s mostly dirt, then spread tons of winter rye grass seed, add lots of water, and wait for it to grow. Golf Course Superintendents would prefer 4+ weeks of growth before turning out golfers. But the pressure to re-open as soon as possible during peak season, most courses will open with “cart path only” rules, within 3 weeks trying to limit the wear and tear on the new growth.   During the over seeding process and while waiting for the winter rye to take hold well enough to stand up to play, the courses will close during the grow-in period.

 

2019 Coachella Valley Golf Course Over Seeding ScheduleNo need to miss a day of great golf, here is the 2019 Coachella Valley Golf Course Over Seeding Schedule for most of the Golf Courses in Valley.

Star Party at Joshua Tree National Park

JoshuaTree-night sky festivalNight Star Festival – Celebrate Fall Equinox with a Star Party at Joshua Tree National Park, September 21, 2019.

This year’s Night Star Festival Star Party will include at least 20 Telescopes, Music, Constellation Tours and Sky Stories.

Daytime activities include astronomy lectures, photo booth, educational tables and youth crafts, along with solar viewing, nature walks, and tours of the model solar system (the “orrery”) at Sky’s the Limit.

Joshua Tree National Park is proud to have recently been designated as an International Dark Sky Park at the Silver Tier level by the International Dark-Sky Association (IDA).

The night sky is a glittering dome peppered with stars, planets, and passing meteors—but most people no longer get to see it. In urban and suburban settings, artificial lighting and atmospheric pollutants wash out the light of the stars. This is a serious loss. For millennia, our ancestors experienced a dark night sky. Cultures around the world told stories about the constellations and used the stars as a calendar. Only for the past few generations have humans been denied the chance to stand in awe of the heavens. Boasting some of the darkest nights in Southern California, Joshua Tree National Park offers many visitors the chance to admire the Milky Way for the first time in their lives.

On a clear, moonless night, you should have no problem viewing the stars from anywhere in the park. However, light pollution from surrounding communities does impact Joshua Tree’s night skies, so some areas of the park are darker than others.
The park strives to be a refuge for those who want to experience a naturally dark night sky.

 

Extreme Golf at the Pioneer Pass Golf Challenge

Extreme Golf at The Pioneer Pass Golf Challenge

Extreme Golf at Pioneer Golf ChallengeEver play golf down the side of a Mountain with a four-wheel drive vehicle as your golf cart?  This is your chance in the 2019 Pioneer Pass Golf Challenge. Beat the desert heat, take in some great scenery, meet a few new friends and have tons of fun!  Tee it up this Saturday for the 60th annual Extreme Golf at the Pioneer Golf Challenge. 

 

 

 

This quirky, obscure sporting event continues a tradition that started in 1959.

Pioneer Pass Golf Challenge

The Pioneer Pass Golf Challenge is a two day tournament – Hawk’s Landing Golf Course in Yucca Valley, is the starting point.

No, the players don’t actually hoof it, players caravan up the mountain in four-wheel drive vehicles to Big Bear. Each hole is set up at different spots along Pioneer Pass – the four wheel drive vehicle’s are your golf cart’s for this challenge.

After completing each hole, golfers pile into trucks for the drive to the next “tee.”

Golfers are required to bring their own “spotters.” These good sports stake out a place somewhere down the “fairway,” and watch for flying golf balls. Not an easy job, as virtually the entire course is played in the rough.  The nine-hole event covers about 30 miles, takes players though rugged mountain terrain before dropping down into Yucca Valley.

Pack your four wheel drive vehicle, grab a spotter with a good pair of binoculars and hit the links for a wacky day of Extreme Golf at the Pioneer Pass Golf Challenge.  Wondering how you could possibly sink a tiny golf ball in a hole on the side of a mountain? Not to worry, each hole is about 20′ in diameter and played mostly along the dirt road that brings you down the mountain.

Your 2nd round is a little easier on Sunday, with an 18 hole Scramble played at The Hawks Landing Golf Course in Yucca Valley.

Pioneer Pass Golf Challenge ewspaper ArticleThis event was originally organized to help raise funds to build a paved road between the two towns.  The pioneers of this extreme golf event, assisted by Marines from the Twentynine Palms base, met on the mountain in the 1950’s with shovels and other equipment to carve out the proposed road. The golf challenge was created as a promotional event to draw attention to the road concept.

The back-road between the towns is still unpaved, but the Pioneer Pass Golf Challenge continues 60 years later.
