Great time in the desert. Tough course for high handicappers. If you can't hit a draw you will lose some balls in the desert. The course was in great shape and the views were nice. I try to play there whenever I'm down there. Staff is friendly and helpful. Ask for their deals. I played early for $39.

We played here last week (Monday 4-14-14) after trying to play the Sat. before (the wind was 30-40 mph, gusting to 50!) So we re-scheduled and wow what a good decision that was! FYI - this golf course is on the East side of Int. hwy. 10 and near the north end of the Coachella valley, translation... more often than... More

We were paired with another couple, so a foursome, following a foursome, with several behind us. We waited pretty much each shot, a short amount, but enough to keep from establishing a good rhythm. The course was in good shape and the views lovely, so except for the group behind hitting into us, it was a good day. We had... More

I have been visiting this golf course twice a week for the last 3 months. I love it there. Staff is friendly and helpful at all times. Peaceful atmosphere, beautiful grounds, everything you could ask for. Then last week I went out there and after golfing went in for my cold drink and a huge dog was right in the... More

We are in Palm Springs for a Christmas golf vacation. Today we played Desert Dunes. Based on the published price and website write up we had high expectations. Thank goodness we found a deal on EZ Links - but we still paid too much. The front nine was not in great shape, the nine were better. We could putt out... More

Got a fantastic "summer" golf rate from GolfNow.Com so i decided to give it a try. Teed off second right behind, what appeared to be some "regulars" and our 2-some never got close to their 4-some and we played 18 holes in about 2 hrs 20 mins. It was a perfect day, sunny, no wind. The course was in really... More

A Robert Trent Jones course, great layout, good for any handicap golfer, plenty of wildlife combination of desert and traditional. Just make sure it is not extremely windy when playing it, it is in an area that can get very windy.

Decent golf course. Greens were not consistent. Wind is erratic there. I would consider playing there again with a discounted rate. There are better courses in the area.
