#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.

Mountain course

Interesting course design. Holes 1, 3, 9 have lots of ground under repair. Range is closed. Crazy new greens will improve as they age to get more receptive. Green speeds were good and smooth. Slow play was unfortunate. Some unreasonable hole placements and hole demands for a first play of the coourse.

Spectacular holes

What a fun course and it’s in great shape. The is no driving range at this time but otherwise it was nice. We had to wait a few times and yet still played 18 in 4 hours

Not overly impressed

This would be a fun course to play, if the greens were ready for use. The starter mentioned to us on the first tee that the greens were brand new and very firm. This information should have been shared with us much sooner than the first tee. The greens are so firm, it made the course borderline unplayable. Hitting short irons/wedges into greens only to watch your ball hit the middle of the green and bounce over the back is not a playable golf course. The worst part is charging full rate to play as well.

I would recommend avoiding this course until the greens are able to soften up.

Terrible new greens. Condition and new design.

Everyone should wait to play here for two to three years and let the new greens settle and soften. They are currently unplayable.

Course

The course was a bit in a rough shape, but still had fun. Very opened and not too difficult. The starter was absolutely excellent. The best starter. I’ve worked with as he offered great tips to make our round more enjoyable will definitely return.

Great golf day

Staff was very friendly and accomodating. Clubhuse is filled with great clothing selection and reasonable prices.

Golf course view is stunning. Elevated greens are always a challenge since the greens do not hold. 2 putts are a win and 3 putts for sure are easy...lol...hard greens since they are new...
part of the challenge...

Better back 9

We played PGA West Dye Mountain course and they have new greens. They were very firm and didn’t hold…but what you’d expect from new greens.
The back nine is tight, more scenic and the better 9. Overall it’s a nice track and a decent bargain for the money for Palm Springs.

The course was no where worth the cost. Greens were hard as concrete. Lots of washed out areas. Rough was not looked after.Grounds crew were busy digging and getting in the way. No range. Should have been a significant discount. We will not be back!

Terrible greens.

Greens hard as rock. Made the experience of a "highly rated" course very unenjoyable.
