Day at Heritage

Course was very wet from the day before rains but in very good shape greens and fairways. They take very good care of it, and one could tell by the 3 holes we ran into 6 to 7 pieces of heavy grass cutting/manicuring and blowing equipment running around as we hit.

Great for most skill levels

Everyone besides the beginner level can enjoy this course. Forgiveness if you miss the right way, but punishing if you miss on an aggressive line. High quality greens really challenge the short game. Hoping to play here every time I'm in the area.

Must play

If you are ever in the Palm Springs area. Heritage Palms is a must play if you want to play a good track that is always in great shape. One of the best maintained courses in the country let alone the Desert. If you play well you can score well. But don’t let it fool you. It plays longer than it looks. The back tees are a real challenge for even the most skilled golfer. Great track, friendly staff that will make your visit a pleasant experience. Nice bar and grill. Sunday golf and brunch package is a good deal.

Top of list of valley courses

Impeccable quality golf course with fast greens, lush fairways and challenging holes with a mix of variety
of no two holes the same and nicely bunkered and
just enough water hazards but not too many as some courses overdo the water to make them too difficult and boring.

Great condition

Heritage club is always in the best condition. Played here 5 times now and always excellent. Pace of play may vary but you will enjoy unless your looking for PGA style course. Course is for the resort player not low single digit player.

Beauty Day for golf

Staff are very good at this club. Despite two shot guns, 0800 and 1230 they were on top of everything.
Course overall in good shape although greens are getting pretty beat up. Not sure if is the number of players going thru or the fact people cannot repair ball marks.
Fairways , rough and t boxes are in very good shape.
The round took a bit longer then previous as over 4 hours but not bad 4 hours 15 minutes.

Immaculate

Played this course 3 times and have been impressed with the absolutely perfect condition. Having played many courses throughout the valley, this stands out by far as the best kept from tee to greens, including thebunkers. Pin placements were a little extreme but the conditions and layout make up for that. .Only issue is pace of play; however, each time was a late tee time so finishing was tough as pace of play was a bit slower than ideal..(4hr 15 is the expected pace). We ran 4hrs 30, not too bad...
Overall, the course is not only immaculate it plays very fair with just the right amount of hazards and trouble to challenge your game with plenty of scoring opportunities. .
Really love this course.

FUN COURSE

Wide fairways, excellent greens and tee boxes, several tee box lengths to choose from so user friendly for everyone.
Sand was perfect, fairway lies perfect, rough just right length.
Highly recommend, we will play there again.

Heritage Palms Golf Course

Heritage Palms is a fabulous course with beautiful vistas and exceptionally pretty holes. If I was a golf course designer, my course would look like Heritage Palms. The course was so green, fairways were great, the greens rolled true and were challenging. The bunkers were even excellent and well maintained. The pace of play was excellent at 4 hours and I am looking forward to playing Heritage Palms again. Any golfer would love this course!

Golf with friends

We played a late morning round today. Second time I have played this course and really enjoyed the round. Course is in great shape and we were able to get on the fairways with carts. Greens were much faster today , probably 10 to 11 which was great. Fairways, t boxed, everything in great shape.
The front nine was a bit slow but picked up in the back. Finished at about 4 hours and 10.
Staff were excellent again. Restaurant was not open so unable to comment.

Nice greens and just a little bit of water!

Heritage Palms is a pearl in the desert. Great views abound and with wide, generous fairways and well kept putting surfaces it’s oh so fun to play! There are some rolling hills, hidden aprons, and elevated greens to provide a challenge but water and desert penalty areas are kept to a minimum. I wish it was my home course.

Immaculate

This course is maintained to the highest standards. Nice layout, challenging, but not over the top, beautiful appearance, homes along fairways, but mostly not in play. I'd play again in a heartbeat.

Outstanding Service - Value for money

They greet you at your car and give you a rundown on the practice area, clubhouse, etc. Practice area for chipping and putting first class. Had to hit off mats for driving range so not so great.
Course was in great shape. Greens a bit slow but true. Bunkers well manicured , t boxes good shape. Cart path only but for warned of that when purchasing.
Breakfast and service overall was outstanding. Staff very attentive, great value for money.

First timers, and we will be back.

We had heard good things about this golf course, and finally tried it. The course is beautiful and challenging. We did play early in the season and had to stay on the cart paths, but still had a great time. Can’t wait to play it again.
