Always enjoyable!

Albeit a bit rusty, my (much better half and I both got some pars over the first nine and I even got a birdie on #9! : ) The second nine we seemed to revert to our bad habits so not quite as productive - but that's only due to the duffers, not the facility which we always enjoy playing.

Fun but challenging Par 3 course

Ted Robinson designed course with short holes but water in play on several. It’s a wedge course but the greens have undulation and if you leave with a score of 60 or under you’re a strong wedge player or a good putter (or both). Par is 54, Fred Couples reportedly shot 11 under, back in the day. One of the best Par 3’s in the valley.

First out and around in under an hour!

Always the best value in Palm desert area! Got out early by myself and completed in less than an hour. Exercise, sunshine, fresh air and good conditions!
Enjoy.

Beautiful little course.

Really enjoyed our day, the course was really nice to play. It was in great shape and we were able to play just the two of us. It was great to walk as we do at home in Canada.
Thank you to the staff in pro shop who were very nice and friendly.

Beautiful and green

The course was in great shape and all the garden and ponds were nicely kept up. I loved that you walk the course as we are used to golfing that way in Canada. Great exercise with beautiful surroundings that’s the way to enjoy your golfing day.

Pace slow

Overall a nice little course. Pace was very slow. Lots of twosomes. Maybe pace would be better if groups of 4. A nice course to challenge your short game. Will be back.
