Average course

PD CC has a decent layout and the sand bunkers were in pretty good shape.
The greens were very nice. Fairways were not in the best of shape but OK for me.
The course is not as challenging as our home course in Illinois. Maybe overpriced for the less than scenic views.

I wouldn’t

The tee boxes an fairways are rough and in kept. Staff couldn’t care less that you are there. Got stuck behind a group of six. After three holes they let us play through then hit into us. Got to the back 9 and got stuck behind a group of 9. That’s right, 9. They wouldn’t let us play through. Pay a couple of more dollars and play a golf course that’s worth playing.

Fast play, and a decent public course.

Greens were immaculate, sand traps are being RE-sanded and the layout is fine for the average golfer. There is enough trouble to get into. The only gripe is the value for the price. I can play numerous other courses for the same price. As a last alternative, I would play again. Great value in the $50’s not $80’s.

A regular on my monthly schedule!

I love this course because of the value, compared to most of the other desert courses. David and the staff are always accommodating and friendly. The course is always in good condition, and a good test of golf for me from the white tees at 70 years old. After reopening for the new season, the sand traps could use a little work, but the fairways and greens are really good. I also commend them for giving us a great price when I take out my 9 year old grandson. I always have a great experience playing Palm Desert CC.

Winter Golf

Greens were great, but fairways were choppy in some spots. Under three hours to go lay 18 is outstanding.

Nice old school layout playable for all levels

As a single digit handicap I enjoyed the course. Wide fairways, in nice shape, large greens in very nice shape, , bunkers were well maintained. I do think at $90 it’s a bit overpriced. It was not crowded and played in 3.5 hours at 9 am.

No Driving Range!!

The course has some decent holes and the pace of play was really good. However, the lack of a driving range is a big bummer. Also, their bunkers are really bad. There is no sand - it is all dirt.
