We golfed both the Valley and Palm courses as part of a business trip. Both were in excellent condition! Our preference was the Valley course.

A great course but the putting was treacherous for all four in our group - some subtle breaks that became tiresome. We played on New Years day and there was no service on the course.

My husband and I have played both the valley course and the palm course in the past week. Both courses are challenging. There is definitely more water and more challenges on the palm course.

The course was in great condition, and the cart-based GPS system was a nice plus and worked flawlessly. The on-course food is also a nice surprise - the chorizo breakfast burrito is excellent and the hot dog was also very good.

Playing in the afternoon heat was perfect and great deal after 2 p.m. The courses are in great shape. The service staff was very accommodating with club rentals. For stay and play at J.W. Marriott, pretty happy.

It is well maintained and has some decent variety. But it's not really impressive for a resort course. If you want a real challenge, I'd look elsewhere. However, if you are a mid to high handicapper this place might be perfect for you.

Course is set in the beautiful J.W. Marriott resort and is just too pretty to look at. You might want to quit your golf game and just look at the scenery!
