First off the clubhouse is very cool! Restaurant rocks! Course was very nice and easy at times and tough on other homes. If you get a chance to play do so. Prices for rounds were cheaper then other courses so it's a great calue.

Good layout but can be windy. Greens were good.....play was a little slow as it was a windy day. You can tell the holes are rated with a northerly wind in mind. There's plenty of room to keep ball in play & the waste areas aren't terribly penal on most holes. Green complexes vary from average to tough. The course... More

A really, really great golf course with incredible views (and if you are like me, great views of the planes taking off from Palm Springs airport). The staff is kind and really tries to move groups along as the course gets a lot of play. The course is in terrific shape, but the greens are a bit marked from so... More

A gem of the 7 courses we played in one week in early January. The whole experience was worthwhile. The clubhouse, restaurant and golf course were all top shelf... add in superior service and it makes it fabulous experience

Very good course in very good condition with amazing scenery. Lacking driving range (warm up into a net). Wide open, not too much trouble, a bit long at 5550 yds for some of the ladies... need one more (shorter) tee box. Friendly staff, great restaurant. Worth the $65 we paid.

The golf course was in pretty good condition. Played long which I loved. It would have gotten a 4.5 out of 5 but the round took over 5 hours to play. We had to wait more than 5-10 mins on every hole. Some holes we were backed up w 4 groups. We called the pro shop on more than one... More

Played here on a 59.00 rate online. When we got to the course we were told they were cart paths only. Wish we would have known we would not have played. I spent most of the round walking with my bag because I was playing on the left side of the fairway and the paths were all on the right... More
