Solid play with exceptional course maintenance

Never played here before and wanted to dial in the irons (and because I hate my driver, just kidding). I teed off at 615am and was done by 8am with nobody in front of me and playing solo. The course was beautiful, I mean beautiful! There are definitely a fair share of shots over water and sand traps protecting all sides of the green but it was really a great round. Staff was friendly (no cart girl bc too early on a Saturday morning) but I had a blast. For $40 Saturday golf done in 2 hours I will definitely be back. The only con was a few of the sand traps on a couple holes had weeds in it and it looked like they were quasi under construction but that was only on 1-2 holes. Beautiful complex and homes line the course but not too tight where you need to bring your check book :)

Nice little par 3 course

Great little par 3 layout but the greens were slower than shag carpet despite not looking like it.

Challenging 3-Par

Prepare for a challenging 3-par with water and bunkers in play throughout. Course is meticulously maintained and greens were in perfect shape. Be mindful of directions as signs were rather limited as you criss cross around the community homes. Highly recommended for all skill levels.

Great course, but not easy

Course was in excellent condition today. Very enjoyable. But it is windy there, when calm everywhere else, so do take that into consideration. Nice views, greens and tee boxes were beautiful. Lots of sand and quite a bit of water too, but it does make it fun and challenging.

Whats not to like

Best 3 par 18 hole course in California and maybe all of USA.....Just get in the cart and follow the cart path for 18 fun par 3's from 100 yards to 200 yards each for men and a little less for the ladies tees....course is absolutely beautiful only down side is all the great green grass between tees and greens you do not use....Indio has two things going for it the rock/western concerts and Shadow Hills North.

Beautiful Course!

Shotgun start but they either overloaded the holes or a Quatro of golfers didn't really pay attention to what hole they were suppose to start from??? Frustrating. Assign the golfers a numbered flag to display on their windshield what hole they will be starting at. JAS. (just a suggestion)
Still a beautiful very well manicured course I'd play there again.
