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.

Both courses are in excellent condition & the views are spectacular! Can't go wrong with either. Great resort!

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!

Really nice course. Open fairways and strategically place bunkers. Water on a couple of holes. Long par 3's and beautiful greens. Didn;t play Palm but heard greens were not good and a few more blind shots with water involved

We have played many (over 9 to include the PGA courses) of the golf courses in the Palm Springs area. We like both of the JW Marriott's courses (the Valley and the Palm) but the Palm course is our most favorite. The course are well maintained, competitively priced and fair to play.

the Valley course is not as beautiful as the Palm course. If you like the water challenges, go for the Palm course. Valley course has more tree obstacles.

See my related trip advisor review of the villa. Loved the resort style Palm course. Was a good contrast to PGA West Stadium which had the desert landscape (and suspect conditions for a world famous venue). Conditions at Palm were above average. If only playing once at Desert Springs, ask which is in the best shape. Did an afternoon round... More

Of the two courses at Marriott Desert Springs, the Palm Course is a more attractive track; in fact it's beautiful especially the closing 4 holes The course is very well maintained. It's a more difficult course than first meets the eye but if you put your ego aside and play from more forward tees the Palm course is a pleasure... More
