Beautiful course that is semi-difficult. We teed off early on both courses. On the first they paired us with a Grandfather and a grandson who was just starting. We spent a great... read more

Beautiful course that is semi-difficult. We teed off early on both courses. On the first they paired us with a Grandfather and a grandson who was just starting. We spent a great deal of time hunting for his balls which slowed our play. The Marshal asked for us to let a twosome play through. We waited 10 minutes and then... More

Played this course on Friday. The greens were absolutely horrible. Definitely the worst greens I have played in Palm desert. Workers were actually repairing one green while we were playing. The worst part is the pro shop didn't mention that anything was wrong with the greens. Don't waste your money.

Played on January 29, 2015, We have played this course several times and liked it very much from the first time. Challenging but still playable for all levels of players. Will play it again.

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. The Palm course was just as nice, but it had a few more blind shots which made it challenging for the first time visitor. Our only negative comment is about the Pro Shop staff. Both... More

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. There are gorgeous view of the mountains from both courses. The greens on both courses are usually surrounded by sand traps. Both courses are well maintained.... More

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.
