Owners of the club needs to allow drinking after we play. Not run us out.

Much tougher layout versus the mountains course. The only negative is when hitting a high 8 iron the ball more times than not, will not hold. It was not until the last 4-5 holes I remembered, to lay-up in front of green and use a Texas wedge to try to put close to the pin.

Love both layouts!

Perfect day

This was my first time playing this course and everything was great. Nobody behind us and nobody in front of us, we had the course to ourselves. I know this rarely happens, but today was just a great day. The staff was helpful and welcoming. The course upkeep was great.

Don’t trust their GPS

The carts have GPS units that were consistently off by 10-20 yards from what we measured with our range finders. The course was in great condition and the staff were all very nice and friendly. Definitely will play here again, good value for the money.

La Quinta Dunes Will Challenge You!

Great course that looks like it should be easy to get good scores, but it really is not forgiving if you fail to hit the right shot especially around the greens. Pace was awesome after the four in front of us let us play through on the 4th hole.

Classic Pete Dye layout - but fair

Have played this course over the past 15 years and have seen it in good years and bad - but always enjoyable. Now - it is in average upkeep with well maintained greens (though a bit slow) and bunkers with good sand. The pace of play was not well controlled. The clubhouse facilities are looking very tired and in need of a lift by its new owners. A major renovation to the dining area could modernize and open up a large outdoor patio for dining that would greatly enhance the clubhouse restaurant.

Typical Pete Dye

Our legs got a work out. The holes are very much the same not much variety. Typical Pete Dye you either go the way he wants you to hit, if you are that good, otherwise you and in valleys, traps or bunkers. We will probably not play the course again, although the course was well kept and a great staff.
