One of the best bargains unless the wind blows. The layout of,the course is challenging for all levels of play. I use golfnow.com to get the best prices. Since I like afternoon tee times it works out great for me...love the heat! The driving range is good but the price is high for what you get.

One of my favorite courses in the area, some of the holes (especially the 18th) are must photo ops, they are so beautiful. Green fees are reasonable for such a beauty. The only downside is that, being in Desert Hot Springs, the wind can really blow sometimes, but you knew that when you saw all the windmills anyway.

I booked this course on line and found a price of $69.00. When we got there they charged us $58.00 Now that's a good deal in the Palm Spring area at this time of the year. Better yet we finished in 3 3/4 hours. Now that's what I call fun.

I played the course twice in a week . Once while the weather was calm and once when it was a bit windy ( about 30 mph ). In some areas I had to go up two clubs to get the some distance into the wind BUT the course is very pretty and well groomed , the staff is friendly... More

This course was just simply beautiful. Played the tips. (Big mistake). Haha. The course was so long. Many of the holes I barely reached the fairway (and I average 290 off the tee). However. The course was manicured to perfection and I can't wait to return. Is put this course up against any in the area. And I'm sure it... More

this is a fairly cheap course to play. friendly staff but the course was very windy with lots of sand off the desert blowing around and very bumpy greens and brown fairways.

This course must have once been a jewel but it seems to be going down fast. Fairways were rock hard and lacking in water. Greens were fine. Clubhouse had little merchandise and snack bar searched around for turkey or ham to put on a sandwich but had no lettuce. It would be nice to see this track come back to... More

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
