Palm Springs Tennis Club Resort

One of my favorite spots in town is the Palm Springs Tennis Club, situated downtown, in the foothills of the San Jacinto mountain. It is a beautiful resort with lush gardens, a lavish pool area and wonderful tennis courts. It is also the home of Spencer's Restaurant at the Mountain, a popular dining establishment with the locals. The tennis club and restaurant attracts it share of rich and famous celebrities, such as Brad Pitt, Queen Latifah, Halle Berry, George Clooney and Andre Agassi. Back in January I hosted the private lunch reception for Dick Van Patten when he received his star on the Palm Springs Walk of Stars. That same day Carol Channing was on site for a fundraiser dinner where she was the guest of honor. Part of it's popularity may be that it is private and secluded away from photographers or the general public.

I love the vintage sign you posted! I may have to stencil that on my wall somewhere. It looks like an awesome place - I would love to play there someday! Enjoy!
