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....

Having played this course numerous times over the past few years and enjoyed it immensely, I took a group of friends to play there in February 2015. The green fee ($140) was excessive given the condition of the course, no GPS on the golf carts, unfriendly staff, and poor condition of the driving range.

Best golf course in La Quinta for views and service. Some holes are free from luxury homes-just you and nature. The whole experience was a pleasure-the pro shop check in to drinks in clubhouse afterwards (beautiful view as well) made the afternoon the highlight of our trip.

I've played a lot of golf in the Desert and this course is still one of the most visually awe inspiring courses. From the driving range - where you literally hit into the mountain to the view of almost every single hole. The one down side is the 18th. You literally go through the most incredible 17 holes of golf... More

This course is a bit dry in some places and the first few greens are a little tore up but the overall beauty is breathtaking. Several holes play along the beautiful Santa Rosa mountains and some of the greens have signifigant speed and break to them. Well worth playing if you can get an online deal.

For a Sunday morning, the course played quick & we didn't have to wait at all. The front 9 is nice but the back 9 is spectacular. Great views! Course us in really good shape. Worth the round for just under $100. Downside; The driving range doesn't allow practice of woods.

Just played the course; please play somewhere else. After reading all reviews of public access courses in the area, I settled on this and it was very disappointing. Very poor conditioning, and actually a very uninteresting design. Only played Faldo Course at Marriott Shadow Ridge but that was much better in conditioning and overall interest.
