PACKAGE PRICE: The Desert Links starts at $157 a night, and that includes a $25 credit toward La Quinta's restaurants, but if your father only wants to play a round, the Great Dad Escape might be more his speed. Both packages are listed on the La Quinta special offers page, if you want to compare them side by side. And if your father is really into golf and warm temperatures, be sure to mark June 22 through 24, 2012 on your calendars; that's when Heatstroke returns to Death Valley. A golf tourney on the first weekend of summer in one of the world's hottest places? You know this is right up some wacky dads' fairways.
