#15 on La Quinta's Mountain is laying along the base of the mountains - stay tight to the base and go for this par 5 in two. The green stays snug up against the base and will not be in full view.

Let down

I have played this track many years ago and love the design. The problem is they are not maintaining the course as it should be. Too many burned out spots, greens are atrocious for this level of a course with bare spots on the greens. Not only that but I paid premium prices in spite of it being 107°, that day. With a little work this could be a world-class track again. Pete Dye would be rolling over in his grave right now

Bucket list course

It was a good all round experience....
Had a bit of bfast looking out over the course at 0800 and thought it was going to be very windy but by the time we teed off at 0851 it calmed way down.
The starter gave us a quick rundown of what to expect and strategy for playing the Pete Dye Mountain course.
My twosome was paired with a twosome who had played the course many times so they helped us with the teeshot lines. Very few of our shots held on the hardpan, raised greens (had to come in very high) but they putted true.

Disappointed PGA West

Not sure why this course would bare the name PGA West…. Course conditions were not good. Greens had many burn spots, fairways same.

Beautiful challenging course

I’ve played the Mountain course over 20 times and really enjoyed the challenge but the last few times have found it very wet and overwatered. On nearly all of my fairway drives my ball had mud on it. Not something you expect in March and April

A very nice layout. Good course conditions. Pace of play was slow in the back nine. No one was stressed about it though. Enjoyed the round.

Course in great shape except the greens

Greens are very slow with granular fertilizer spread out over the greens. It was like sand on the greens, you couldn't get a true roll. Despite the greens, I still recommend playing because eventually, the fertilizer will be gone and it's a PGA West course.

Ok but not great

I was eagerly anticipating the back nine as everyone says it’ has outstanding views and layout. Yeah maybe 15-18 and there are still many houses in site. Front 9 was cramped but had water on a number of holes and less houses on the fairways. Conditions were fair with a number of brown patches as to be expected in the desert. Be aware golf sandals could get you rejected from play. Worth it for under $100 with a deal time…hope the stadium course lives up to the hype as this one was just ok.

Great layout and challenging course

Fairway and green was good but rough were dry out ( many brown spots). You can’t expect winter condition on April. Many golf courses were dry out too not just PGA courses . So I will like to play here again. And I highly recommend this course if you visit the desert

Fun course

Course was in amazing shape and had great facilities and Practice area. The back 9 was picturesque with several holes playing up against the cragy mountians and desert wilderness. Some of the lowland holes played more like a dunes course, with not alot of vegetation or trees. I particularly liked some of the fairway long. sandy waste areas. That was a pretty unique feature I have not seen. The course was challenging with many elevated, well protected greens, but not overly difficult if you can hit you short irons high and true.
