Easy to get a tee time, easy to store clubs, challenging enough golf without being "tricked up". The course was in great shape.

Course looked beautiful from road so decided to give it a try. Customer service from when we arrived at bag drop was well below any other service we had in the area. The women that checked us in was very nice. The starter was not very friendly and informed us they were 20 minutes late- there is no frost delay-... More

I'd actually give this course 3-1/2 stars; not up to 4 star amenities. We drove up to the bag drop, where there was a phone to call if no one was around to take the clubs (there wasn't). The pro shop is down a flight of exterior stairs Clubs were waiting after check-in. Carts don't have windscreens or club covers... More

We spent a month at the JW Marriott and played both courses. Each course has it own unique challenges and beautiful waterfalls. Many of the fairways are generous but often undulating, creating uneven lies. I found both courses to be user friendly but requiring well placed shots on the over the water par threes. I highly recommend these well maintained... More

I finished off the 2013 golf season in Canada on a bit of a sour note. I booked a one hour video lesson at the Desert Willow. The lesson is not at Desert Willow though. It is at a driving range about a five minute drive away. Paul Bucy was my instructor and he was very intuitive as to my... More

Beautifully maintained, great golf for anyone! Watch out for sneaky water hazards - dangerous. Visually pretty as well. Fairways fairly open to slicing

Played on the Palms golf course. It is truly a great course not just for its design but the way is truly manicured. Not too hard, especially generous in your driver’s landing areas, great bunkering, water to embellish the course more than to penalize your bad shots. Great pace of play. The course superintendent and his crew are true magicians... More

I played this course with a freind this weekend. I would not play here again. The course is located at the JW Marriott in Palm Desert. The golf shop is located all the way around the back of the building. You must park out front and carry your bag up two fights of stairs then walk through these shops and... More

My wife is a beginner golfer and I am a 15. We both had a enjoyable day on the valley course. The course was forgiving enough for her to play. The views were great. the course is kept in great shape, and the time of play was about 4 hours. Cart person comes around often if you need a drink... More
