Beautiful plateau

Beautiful plateau with very pleasant relief from the heat down below, with lots of well-signed walks. We did an easy 3-hour walk through lovely woods on well-designated footpaths.

Average resort course with some hard and easy holes,, some holes are hard and others are very easy, it will depend on the wind and how hard it is blowing.. reasonably easy to get around.

I had high expectations. Prestigious name and good reviews. We may have gone too late in the season. There were a couple of really beautiful holes, but the course was pretty ragged. Also they should have told us we would need to buy a course guide book. Was hard to figure out where to go, how far anything was, and... More

I LOVE the layout of this course. The front nine is fun, if not a little tight when it comes to the closeness of the holes. The back nine is beautiful and spectacular. It is a fun course to play. Very typical Pete Dye with a ton of railroad ties. So...why only 3 stars? It is in horrible condition and... More

We brought a group of 8 buddies down from Canada to do some golfing. We chose the La Quinta Mountain Course as it had real nice course reviews. We booked two foursomes through "Golf Now" and had no issues with booking. When we arrived at the course to check in (after spending numerous dollars in the pro shop) we were... More

Loved this facility, from the moment I walked in. Professional staff throughout, and tee to green for 18 holes. Course was in great shape, very scenic, and very challenging. Can't say enough great things about this course.

But was too hot. Not used to this much hot weather anymore. Played only 9 holes due to heat and it was middle of the day. Overall... Really enjoyed.

I've never played golf west of the Mississippi, and I've never visited the Palm Springs area. My wife and I decided to visit the area for a conference in the midst of the most terrible winter at home in memory. A friend suggested the mountain course, and I'm glad he did. It is unreal and totally worth whatever greens fee... More

The mountain right around the golf course and the view was just splendid. I like the golf course as well but the grass on the rough was all burnt. Worth playing (especially for the view)

I played at 8 a.m. on a Friday. Every tee time was taken on the dunes and mountain courses, but the starter and marshal moved things along. The course was in fantastic shape and the views from the course were outstanding. Even though it was very crowded, everyone from the desk checkin to the cart crew made the experience enjoyable....
