course maintenance could be better but the price was right.

You get what you pay for

The course itself is challenging, but bad shape in places. There’s a broken down tractor on the cart path that’s been there awhile. Consider yourself lucky if you get around in their carts before they run out of juice. For $35, I’ll be back. Just don’t have high expectations.

Good for the price!

Indian Palms is a great course for the price. We enjoyed our round, especially because "Joe" the director of everything at Indian Palms helped us as a starter, clubhouse director, etc. Thank goodness for Joe who is the only consistent part of the.organization. He is an excellent golf pro and I have had lessons and he never has a negative thing to say as a clubhouse worker or as a golf course representative. We did not enjoy the golf cart worker....... He gave us a bad time about golfing 18 holes and getting back to the cart barn at 6:50pm. The cart barn employee was negative and not concerned with customer service.............That was the only disappointing part of the whole experience.

The course was played in three hrs because no one was there.

The girl at the desk was as friendly as a snake. The fairways and greens were terrible. The sand traps had grass growing in them and were had as a rock. The nice part was I had the course to myself. I was stopped by a guard who asked me if I had paid. Apparently a lot of local jerks think they can take their own carts and play for free.

Pluses and minuses

Played 9 holes as a part of our Stagecoach Festival weekend.

Pluses:
- Friendly staff.
- Grass range with short game area.
- Accommodating. We had 7 players and wanted a specific course. The starter fit us in and told us there wasn’t anyone behind us so we played as a seven-some.

Minuses:
- Course conditions are a little scruffy. Conditions are consistent with the price, just don’t expect pristine fairways and greens.
- 2 of our carts broke down during the round. This was an unwanted hassle, but we made it work.

Overall, Indian Palms is an OK place to play as long as you manage expectations about course conditions.

Not worth the money

Have been playing at this course for the past 10 years when in Indio. The course over the past 4 years has been going down hill in all aspects. This year we had problems with the carts. The batteries did not last the 18 holes.
One several occasions ourselves and the friends that were with us we had to call and get a new cart brought out to us. Very annoying! Owners response was the batteries are on order but won’t arrive until October.
There was no discount offered for the inconvenience we incurred.

snowbird- late

Mountain / Royal

Worst golf experience in the Coachella Valley in many years. Staff was unpleasant at best. Equipment was very poor. Went thru 4 golf carts in 18 holes and pushed power cart for at least 3 holes trying to finish. Staff seemed to feel we were a burden.
Tee boxes had not been cut for several days - maybe longer. Greens badly marked up.

Clearly end of season and they really didn't want anyone who cared about the golf experience.
Will make sure I never return and will advise anyone I know to avoid the facility.

GOFNOW should not be involved with these people - they are an embarrassment.

27 hole track. 2/3 nines in reasonable shape. 1/3 nines have been seemingly abandoned from care and attention and clearly used to entice Golfers looking for value. Play elsewhere.

Just Terrible

Course is totally unkept. No distinction between fairway and rough. Lost balls hitting straight down the fairway as the grass had not been cut for a long time.
Golf cart made an annoying high pitched buzzing noise. Could not get it to stop. Asked for different cart after 3 holes. Cart never came. Noise got worse. Took cart in after 9 holes. Refused to give us a different cart.
Very bad experience. Was not enjoyable at all.
Will not be returning. Don't waste your money. Lots of other good courses to play!
