#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.

A must play for anyone visiting La Quinta

I've played the Mountain Course at La Quinta twice now, nine years apart, and both times it was the first course I played on a weeklong trip. This course is a great way to start a golf vacation. With its terrific mountain views, Pete Dye design and friendly staff, this is a terrific golf experience. There are so many great views, but the last few holes are really special. The highlight for most is the par-3 16th, which has an elevated back tee that looks down at least 100 feet to the green. That view alone is worth playing the course, but there are many other highlights on a course that's both fun and certainly challenging, though not nearly as hard as many Dye layouts.

PGA Mountain

Beautiful Course. Terrible Day. We were excited to experience this tremendous course unfortunately the entire day was ruined by the ":foursome" behind us. It consisted of 3 carts, 3 adult golfers and 3 non golfing children between the ages of 5 - 8 I suspect. The yelling and screaming and rolling down the hills by the children lasted all day. I just can't imagine why this was allowed on a course with this pedigree. We were also paired with a couple who actually congratulated each other on the completion of 18 holes of real golf ( we do not blame the course for this as they have no way of knowing that this was the couples first full round of golf ) Very difficult day.

Grumpy staff, terrible food and beverage

Experience started with having to eat lunch out of a cardboard box, shabby for a $45 bill; course marshall gave us grief for being behind but our cart showed we were 5+ minutes ahead; other golfers jumping ahead but marshall did nothing about it. Oh, and this club can't figure out how to accept RBC credit cards like everywhere else in the world ... PGA West ... pretty amateur.

NICE ROUND WITH MY SONS

HAD A NICE ROUND WITH MY TWO SONS. ONLY COMPLAINT WAS FROM MY TWO SONS WHO HAVEN'T PLAYED A LOT OF HIGHER END COURSES, SO SEVERAL TIME THROUGH THE ROUND THE MARSHAL PULLED UP WHICH MADE BOTH OF THEM FELL UNEASY (THINKING THEY WERE PLAYING SLOW) ONLY TO HAVE THE MARSHAL TELL US THAT WE WE "RIGHT ON PACE".... BOTH OF MY SON'S THOUGHT THAT IT EFFECTED THERE GAME WHEN NO ONE WAS PUSHING US AND WE WERE WAITING TO TEE OFF A COUPLE OF TIMES

Amazing Track

Hadn’t played this classic Dye Desert layout in years and was happy to see the course is being looked after and is still relevant as one of the best desert layouts you’ll ever play. The staff was friendly and the course conditions were in top shape. Highly recommend for your golf break.

Amazing views…slow play

One of the most scenic courses you can play and overall enjoyable. The Ranger could have done a better job keeping up the pace of play as we were around 4:45.
