This is a 5-star place with a 2-star "driving range" (artificial turf surface from which one hits into a nearby net). Service was great, as was the course condition. The course offered some great views, despite its close proximity to the airport. This course is...More

The best thing going for Escena is it's convenience to downtown Palm Springs, only a short drive away. Otherwise, this is a relatively simple, open and straightforward course. You won't be severely tested which also means you're likely to enjoy a relatively frustration-free round. The...More
