These are two of the best golf courses you will find in the Palm Desert area. Excellent service at check in and everyone we encounter if friendly and very professional. Restaurant serves breakfast and lunch or late afternoon appetizers after golf. Excellent food and service.

This golf course is stunning with lush green fairways and lovely landscaping all around. The pin placement on many of the holes were really a challenge! Well worth the $138 green fee.
