Excellent course

We played this course for the first time on January 27, 2015. It is an excellent course for all levels of players. Friendly staff and the course was in very good condition.

Paid $86 which was better then Golf Now. Called direct to pro shop and they told me Golf Now does a mark up, learned something. The property suffered from rain damage in Sept and is still coming back. Course was in good shape, fun to play, I would play it again.

The course has flooded for the last two years and they just got it back in shape to play, although cart path only. Mountain course was still closed at Thanksgiving. This is another wide open fun course. Just stay out of the rough, you will never find your ball.

It is really quite unbelievable that a course as remarkable as La Quinta Mountain is in the same facility as La Quinta Dunes. Nothing remarkable about this course. The Dunes are boring and it smells for about 12 of the 18 holes. I wouldn't pay 20 bucks to play this in the high season - not with everything else around.... More

Booked a last minute inexpensive tee time and golfed alone. That was the highlight of the day. Checking in the gentleman was stand offish. Bedside manner was terrible....did not provide any direction and this was my 1st time there. After getting my cart and directions to the 1st tee....looking at the tee box and fairway I was disappointed at the... More

Made our tee time via a local reservation service. It was not a busy day and we were playing fairly late, so were a bit surprised that they teamed us up with some last-minute arrivals. The starter made it a point to tell us that it is a very difficult Pete Dye design where PGA Q-school has been held. During... More

This course is very difficult and you must have a lot of balls with you. It is very scenic and the surrounding area is gorgeous. The course however has many many hazards and they are tough. You must place all of your drives just right or you will roll down the sloping fairways into water, rough and sinewy grass where... More

The greens are pretty protected and were pretty fast (10). The tall grass eats balls. Golfed late in the afternoon, got a bit windy towards the end of our round. Enjoyed.

My husband and I played the course on a Wednesday morning. The pace was good and the staff were great. The greens were very challenging with almost every one of them sloping away. It's a pretty course as are many in the California desert. Our green fee was $85.00 each which included the cart and the practice range. On Thursday,... More
