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.

Great course.

Desert Mirage is a great course. Especially so if you are learning or bring someone along that is learning. I have golfed here with my 19-yo daughter a few times and it is a lot of fun. Not too hard, but it has enough hazards to be a real course.

Masks are not required on the course. We had just forgotten to take ours off after leaving the clubhouse.
Club house has plenty of water, soda, energy drinks, and beer.

Walking was just under 2 miles.

Just Ok

My wife is just getting off shoulder surgery so I took her here to play her first nine holes in a year. It was perfect for her and we had good time. Course was in ok shape with the greens be the best part.

Amazing!!!

Best value for the money! Used every club in my bag! From driver to my A wedge. This is my fav course so far! Greens give a challenge to even the best of players! Can’t beat the price for this course. Took me less than 90 mins to play 9 holes! I 100% will be back!

Great value for the money

There’s no better course for under $30. It is well maintained in comparison to others in the area. Nice pace and challenging enough to play more than once.

Good course.

Great short course. This day they were behind on times so we started 30 minutes late. Play was slow. Waiting. But it is a Sunday.

Course was in good condition but that is just it. Good.

Overall and easy learning course for my 13 year old.

I got what I paid for... fun golf.

Good little course, played in 1 hour & 15 min.
The holes can be confusing first time out.
The greens were in perfect condition.
The cart paths could defiantly use some work/

Best for my needs

This was my first time here. I thought it would be a great place to introduce my daughter to the game of golf because it was a short par 9 course, had protective barrier making it safer for new players to hit balls and not worry about hitting people or property. She had a blast.
