Nice Course

Fairways wide and in great condition. Greens in great condition and roll true. Not the fastest greens but reasonable. Pace of play was horrible due to one group holding up the whole course. Marshall talked to them but it didn’t do any good. And PROSHOP closed at 1:00 so no help after that. Guy I played with said it’s not always that slow. Well worth the money and I will definitely play it again when back in Indio area.

Excellent golf experience

This golf course is one of the best in the Coachella Valley, including other courses in La Quinta and Indian Wells that are far more expensive. Friendly staff, excellent course conditions, a challenging and fun course

Heritage Palms

Rode the Golds (6698/72.1/128) in less than 3H mid day on a GN Hot Deal. Played 9 with two different guys who only wanted to play 9, it was 110 and clear.

Semi-private course that is surrounded by nice homes and condos in a gated community. Arthur Hills design that is around 25 years old. Typical resort type layout. Mostly open with only a few tight shots with several lakes that come prominently in play on a few holes. Enough sand, trees and native areas to get your attention without beating you up with them. Playing conditions were near immaculate.

Tees were immaculate, level and lush with hardly a divot anywhere.

Fairways lush and nice to play from.

Rough mowed down uniformly low and not very penal.

Greenside traps nicely maintained with thick, white sand. Fairway traps were a little more firm.

Greens were firm, smooth and putted medium speed. Hardly a ball mark anywhere and you had to play for run out.

Customer service was excellent. Quick efficient check-in. Beautiful, large clubhouse. Nice practice range that included a chipping area over by the tennis courts. The course would not be very walkable because of the heat and the fact that numerous tees are a long way from the last green. Nice layout that would be good for players of all skill levels. Recommended.

Always a treat

Having played here during high season and low, before and after the covid closure, I can tell you that the course right now will not disappoint. While not in prime high-season shape, it’s in really good shape for summer. The greens are running slower than normal and are spotty in places, 8-8.5 I’d guess, but having played some of the best here in the desert, t’s one of the best conditioned courses in town right now, at least in the public realm. The shoo and outside staff are great and beyond friendly. Play here if you can!

Greens are Terrible

Everything was nice at the course before we teed off. Staff were great, practice/warm up facilities were excellent. Loved the course...layout was good and very playable for all skill levels. The greens we just plain bad...lots of bare spots...they look good because they sand them and spray them green, but they are bumpy and impossible to play. I don't mind that so much, but I can't understand why the course and Golf Now cant disclose that fact before you book. 2 stars for the course and 1 star for Golf Now :(

Every green was bad. Not sure what this issue is, but I recommend you call the course to check the conditions before you book. Not worth even a discounted rate when there are so many nice courses in the area.
