Golf Course sighting of Bright Light Disc

At La Quinta Golf Course. they have two 18 hole courses we were on the course nearest the entrance and condos. We saw the UFO on the 11th hole, it is a slight dog leg left with water on the left, condo's on the right. Standing on the Tee box looking down the hole about 423 yds we saw a bright light almost too bright to look at. It seemed to have a round/disc shape. This light was hovering above the green eraticaly moving up and down about 10 to 15 feet at a time. The size of this light was within the size of the green no more than 25-30 feet across. The thickness of the light was about 3-4 feet.

The erratic movement stopped after about 25 seconds the light moved up about 30 feet stopped, then moved towards us on the Tee box it made no sound we felt no wind, the light went above us and between us as we both turned inward to watch the UFO go by.

It gained altitude and speed we watched it to about 150 feet high and maybe 800 yards in distance when it dissapered.

We traveled down towards the green and saw a couple (man and wife?) gardening at the condo closest to the "Green" . We asked them if they saw what we saw ( it was very close to them) They looked at us as if we were joking with them and said they saw / heard nothing.

A few days later I heard, third hand that UFO's had been reported in Plam Springs the same day.
