PALM DESERT -- Retired high school teacher Sue Sims moved to the desert for the same reasons hundreds of others do.
Sims wanted to enjoy retirement and play golf -- lots of golf.
Now a member at Mission Lakes Country Club, this Palm Springs resident has taken her hobby to another level.
A former college basketball player, Cerritos High School teacher and golf coach at Long Beach City College, Sims now competes for the College of the Desert golf team, one that is on the cusp of a Foothill Conference title.
"I purchased a house here 14 years ago because I knew I wanted to retire here," said Sims, who enrolled at College of the Desert in order to compete (a 12-unit minimum course load is required)."I love the golf and the casual way of the desert.Plus, I knew Shel (COD coach Shel Wellins) from coaching against him."
Actually, Sims was going to assist Wellins with the team with practices and matches at Rancho Mirage Country Club, but never used any college golf eligibility and decided to play instead of sitting on the sideline.
"After I made that decision he found a couple of others to play and it's turned out to be a really nice season," she said.

L.B.'s seasoned rookies.
Kids can come up with some pretty creative excuses , Sims admits.But there haven't been any surprising ones.
Sims said the most unusual , and very adult , reason for missing practice this season came from Lisa Holloway , who is a 38-year-old fireman in Riverside.
These women all run households and hold jobs , Sims said.
Four of the six players have already graduated from four-year colleges with bachelor degrees.Still , all six find the time to take the mandated 12 units to be eligible to compete in athletics.
At age 34 , Kim Kokoska is the baby on the team , and the eldest , Patty Meyers , is a year older than her coach.
Meyers was a teammate of Sims on the Cal State Fullerton women's basketball team when the school won the national championship in 1970.
They are all great athletes and they are all competitors , Sims said.Golf gives them a chance to be competitive in a different sport..
The highest the Vikings finished this season is third place , including Tuesday's third-place finish at the conference championships.Mt. San Antonio College shot a combined 333 at the par-73 course to win by nine strokes.College of the Desert was second with a 342 , followed by LBCC ( 349 ) and L.A. City.
Sims said Kokoska and Atkins have a good shot of shooting a low enough score there to move onto the state tournament , which is scheduled to be played in two weeks.
