We think the two courses here are fun and quite challenging for players of all levels. It is very scenic and excellently maintained for a public course. BUT, unless you are a resident of Palm Desert, you will have to pay top dollars to play...More

I played both courses over two consecutive days and liked them equally as well. The staff was very friendly from the pro shop to the cart attendants to the bartender. Both day's experiences were outstanding.

Make sure you have this on your list. Reasonable prices. Surprisingly a municipal course with a resort feel. Great conditions. Was in better shape than PGA West Stadium.

Have been to Desert Willow many times (breakfast, lunch and dinner). Happy is great too. Remember, in hot weather, no tank tops. It's a city owned golf course but they go by golf course rules.
