Love this place!

Have been coming here since 1995. Airmas in pro shop is a great guy. Zack with the golf carts another great guy!
The value is terrific plus the average level of difficulty keeps the score in a fair and reasonable level.
Love the history of the place too. Goes back to 1959.
Glad they survived the “Save PS Golf” thing too!
Will be back with my sons.

The fairways are too long and covered with weeds

Greens slow and in need of repair. This is not the same course I played 7 years ago. It needs a lot of repairs

Great course

Amazing course and fairways in excellent condition. Nice touch to have water and ice stations all along the way to hydrate.

Firecliff is the one

Both courses here are great but Firecliff is a bit more challenging. Staff is friendly and welcoming and the practice area is top notch. Very good golf course and good value for this area.

Unlike Desert Willow, Tahquitz Legend always delivers

Staff always friendly and welcome vs. Desert Willow snotty. Greens much better than Desert Willow too - faster and smoother. Played in 2 hr 45 minutes. Only saw a few singles. No fivesomes like Desert Willow. Worth the extra driving time. Driving range open; Desert Willow closed 11AM-2PM. Legend nice long, mostly straight, no hills, mid-long par 4s and 5s. Big Boy course. Don't play Legend if you can't get off the tees.

Better than most

Golfed at Marriott Desert Springs the next day and not only were conditions better at Tahquitz, but the views were much better and being from Florida we took a bunch of photos at Tahquitz and only two at Marriott.
