Course Reviews

This course just keeps getting better every year. It's always in outstanding condition in season and still in great shape in the summer. The best greens in the desert year around by far, and a great deal too. It's also a great place to hold a private event. (wedding, birthdays, etc.) Very reasonable, great views and absolutely the friendliest staff.

Course layout is fun, but was not in great shape. Fairways were dry & a bit hard. Challenging use of water. Greens not slow, but not fast either. Crowded, so pace of play was slow. Everyone was very friendly.

Great Desert Course!!!

FYI - I'm a 13 Handicap. I've probably played this course about 6 or 7 times over the past 3 years. My friends and I always try and make a tee time at this course when we vacation out in the Coachella Valley every summer (we usually make it out to the desert 3 weekends every summer). NOTE: I've only played this course in the summer. This course is a great summer course!!! The green fees are super cheap - around $35 in the summer. The greens are pretty quick (probably a 8.5-9.0) but they are pretty hard and don't hold unless you're coming into the green VERY high or with a fair amount of backspin. The fairways are always plush and fairly wide. The course is a good challenge but it's not super hard. In the 6 or 7 times I've played this course, I always shoot right around 90. They don't have GPS on the carts but almost all the sprinkler heads are marked with yardages to front, middle and back of the greens. Every cart has a small cooler which helps keeps your drinks cold in the 110 degree weather. I highly recommend this course and I'll be out there this summer.
