Great Value!

This course was challenging without being soul-crushing. Lots of very interesting holes with layouts that a high handicapper can still appreciate. Staff was very attentive - even saw the beverage cart 3 times during our round. Play is a little slow - they could improve things by pairing up 2-somes, IMO. Coots have taken over the 17th green and approach. Other than that, the course was beautiful and a delight to play. Will definitely return!

Very Nice

Conditions were great compared to most courses outside of Palm Springs. Greens were challenging due to slope, breaks and speed. Fairways were nice. Will be back soon.

Best deal I’ve experienced in a long time! Great day.

Dye is always challenging but very visual. Once you get a feel for what he is doing ...really fun golf.

Perfect day at the dunes

I surprised my husband with a date at the dunes for his birthday.

The course did not disappoint! The driving range was beautiful and well maintained. There were multiple putting greens to choose from. .

The customer service was spot on start to finish. From the starter welcoming us, the pro shop giving course tips, bartender and cart were attentive.

The course was in excellent condition. The fairways , the greens and tee boxes.
