Simply sweet

Tahquitz golf is one my favorite places to play.

Once a year, the family and I come out to Palm Springs for a week and stay next to Tahquitz. The courses are always in the best condition, regardless of the time of year, and wether you play the Legends or Resort course, the playing is great. And that’s what really matters.
Although, I miss the all inclusive food and drink they had before covid, the courses are still well with the price.

Staff at the pro shop could be a little more friendly or accommodating.. people from out of town like to feel just as important as the locals. Word of mouth goes along ways..

Great course to play!

The Legend Course is a great course for all levels of golfers. It has something for everyone. I have played the course several times throughout the seasons and years and I would recommend the course to all golfers.

Nice Quick Round, solid course experience all around

First time playing here, teed off at 730 as a single on the Resort course, Starter was friendly and helpful, 3 some asked me to join on the first tee but it looked pretty wide open so I kindly declined and proceeded to play a 3.5 hour casual round. Had a fresh deli sandwich and a draft IPA post round for only 7 bucks and enjoyed the beautiful views on the patio. Only complaint would be the greens were rolling a bit slow.

Sadly no

The course is worn, the staff is lousy, the starter is a surly goon who does not interact well with people (we are paying to play there he is not doing us a favor. The course is not well marked, a lot of water with no description. Will never play this course again.

We had a great time !

This was an enjoyable course to play and the pace of play was great ( we managed to get 18 in even though we started at 1:45. Friendly fairway lengths allowed for some regulation play and Pars

Great Value Course

If you’re looking for a $30-$40 round in the area, this is a great place to get some practice in and play in the sun. I have previously played the Resort course and would rather play there again over the Legend course, but I would recommend either for somewhere to play if you’re looking for value. The staff was honest and true about conditions and I’d have to say I’ll likely be back.
