Small Greens but Big Message
This is a course for players learning to golf. Dime sized greens and short holes require precision - not power. Holes range from 70 to 130 yards. It was not crowded allowing players to hit multiple balls. Experienced golfers will want more variety in a layout.
Hole signs had great messages. See photos.
A very nice 9 hole, walking course.
The course is tight so being able to hit straight is a plus. I remember the longest fairway is 125, so consider this an irons course. I played during Easter week Nd there were a lot of new players and kids on the course, fine with me.
I've played this course on several occasions. This was by far my best experience playing this course. Course conditions were outstanding which was not the case on my earlier visits. I will be back.
Very Short Course
The course is just way to small. Sand wedge is the only club you need to go through the course with the exception of one hole.
A mixed experience, but recommended
The Golf Center has one of the few public driving ranges in the Palm Springs area. The nine hole par 3 course, walking only, is attractive with well-tended fairways, rough and greens. There is a very good chipping and putting practice area. Many customers are not golfers, so the pace of play is quite slow with some amusing activities each day we have gone there to practice our short games. Tee areas are quite close to the previous green, so it is fairly often that the non-golfer patrons hammer their drive into the people waiting at the next tee. All-in-all we went there to work on our short games and it was a good experience. There are other par 3 and executive courses in the area that are much nicer and more challenging, but we had a good time there.
Course was in very good condition & fun to play. However Golfnow did not specify course is only part 3 or that rider carts not available. Golf equipment in golf shop very limited.
Excellent Par 3 Facility
I’ve played a few rounds of golf here with my wife. Great course for the infrequent player or a chance to practice and improve your short game. A few sand traps to avoid, one pond to partially hit over and a big wash to the left on the first couple of holes. Great value and a friendly staff behind the counter. Will return in the future for a round of 9. Oh, btw, lemon trees line the driveway and at times a few need to be taken home. Check with management first
Short and sweet
Course was in excellent shape It was extremely busy with lessons. Could have used a Marshall as there was so many people milling around the first hole it was difficult to see who was next.
Lots of extra coaches also around the players which made it slower and pace was slower than it could have been. BUT beautifully kept course and good for iron work
Great Place for Beginners
I really enjoyed playing here. It is the Coachella Valley site for the First Tee program. 9 holes, Par 3-4. Majority of the people there were beginners and on the course to work on fundamentals of the game. I love supporting programs and courses like this.
