Desert Mirage Golf Course offers a public, nine-hole course and a fully stocked pro shop. The course has a traditional design but that does not mean it is boring. It is perfect for squeezing in a quick game or for beginners and kids. The course is relatively flat, but there are some hills on the course that can affect shots. The greens are medium sized with some slight undulation and the generous fairways are wide open. There are also water hazards and bunkers that come into play on a few of the holes. Desert Mirage Golf Course's signature hole is the par-4 ninth. It requires a tee shot over a lake to an island green.

Good Place to Practice

It’s in decent shape and provides good track to practice shorter par 3 and par 4 play. The greens were in great shape and challenging.

Great alternative to a driving range

This little executive style (9 holes, no par 5s) provide a nice workout for those mid and short range problem clubs to work on. The condition of the roughs leave something to be desired. However the fairways are pretty decent. The greens were a pleasant surprise. They were fast and reasonably challenging and in very good condition

Don’t expect a challenging game if that’s what you are looking for. Tune up your game, very good

Great bang for your buck

$20 for 9 an extra $10 for a replay. Par 3s and 4s. First 9 wasn’t bad, got busier on the 2nd replay. We went ahead of schedule as they were backed up and eventually we ran into that and had to sit past the 3rd hole waiting to go. Then we had people waiting on us so felt a little rushed. Other than that can’t beat the price for a cheap 9. Lots of geese on the course and geese crap which was annoying. The price would bring me back for sure.

Good Stuff

Great course to get back in the groove after not playing for a while. It was fun because you play 9 and do it again to try and improve on your first go at it. All the fare ways and greens were nice. Definitely going back soon. Can’t beat that price!

Great nine holes

This was a nice nine hole course. Half are PAR-3s and the others are about 300 yards. I had a great time with my son. I will visit again!

Ok for price and beginners

Not for serious golfer but practice facility is pretty good. It would be a great place for a beginner or someone trying to teach a beginner about the game. Fairways and greens were still filling in but roughs were small and in tough shape. Staff was friendly and helpful.

Great Price

After not golfing for 8 months, we wanted to warm up our short game. When we arrived the staff were super friendly. The pace was quick, and we opted to play another 9. To our surprise the second round was even cheaper than the first!
This is a fun little course.
