Still my fin avorite.That's that's what I call Superior customer service. That's what I call Superior customer service

First of all the staff at Desert Willow are exceptionally friendly and competent. Had a great round 105 degree heat and one of the golf staff even came to our 9th hole with cold towels to cool us off.that's what I call Superior customer service.

A few hacked up greens

Course play well despite a few of the greens were in pretty bad shape, they did discount us the rate which did help, but overall, still enjoyed playing here.

Desert Willow Mountain

Great course for the value. Played during the summer season for $59 which included a cart. Challenging Course, especially when not used to the 109 degree weather. Would definitely recommend this track for anyone playing golf in Palm Springs. Looking forward to coming back!

Mountain View

Rode the Purples (6507/71.2/128) in 3H twilight. Hazy, breezy and in the low 100's.

Tees were good with only a few needing divot repair. Level and mostly lush.

Fairways lush and nice to play from.

Rough was very lush and mowed low, not very penal.

Traps were nicely maintained with good quality sand.

Bermuda greens were medium speed and firm. Late Summer Bermuda bumpy with the heat.

Always exceptional customer service here. Quick, efficient check-in. Excellent all grass practice facility with complementary range balls. Nice GPS on the upgraded carts that have ports for electronics. No Drink cart this afternoon, but plenty of ice/water stations on the course every few holes.

Fun layout with plenty of water and traps but they do not overwhelm you. Recommended.

Love this course!

Conditions were very good, especially for the middle of the summer. Fairways were green and lush and the greens were beautiful. We played at noon so the course was pretty much wide open. We passed a group midway through, but still played in a little over 3 hours.
