I've been playing this course every winter for over 10 years and have never been disappointed. Great staff, course has always been in good shape, good restaurant and bar. Good for all levels of golfers and they've been extra friendly with our youngsters here. The entire staff remembers us from previous years which is a nice service touch. Will keep... More

I've played Shadow Ridge a few times now and it might be my favourite Desert Course (Silverrock, Classic Club & Indian Wells are right up there too). Played Dec. 18th and it was in great shape again. The course is well well framed by the bunkers and trees. While the landing zones are generous, if you hit the bunkers, be... More

Here for our annual vacation in Palm Desert. Resort is wonderful. Villas are large, clean and comfortable. Golf course is one of my favorites. Course is challenging and beautiful and in superb condition this year. Customer service at the resort and the golf course is great!

Just played in November and have never seen this course look better!!!! I have played it probably 10 times over the years and this is by far the best shape its ever been in......fairways were perfect, greens awesome and even the rough was like a fairway!!! An eagle on 16 didn't hurt either!!!!

My husband and I played golf at this 18 hole golf course on December 2, 2015. Our round took about 4 hours and 40 minutes to play. The course is quite challenging and i would recommend for intermediate and advanced golfers. I am probably an intermediate golfer and picked up my ball on two or three holes as I was... More

My wife and I stayed at this resort last December and hope to do so again next year, it wasn't available this year. Our room was on the second floor over-looking the 17th hole, which was a terrific location. The rooms were typical of Marriott (outstanding) and very comfortable. I played golf three times, and didn't bother to visit any... More

This course is in the desert but does not have the desert feel. I felt is was easy enough with multiple tees but tricky greens. I had a fun day, maybe not the most female friendly course in the worl but still a pleasure. Staff was just OK...

Big, beautiful one bedroom near the quiet pool. Nice balcony with view of the golf course. Enjoyed having the washer and dryer, ice maker, plenty of pool towels, soap, paper towels, two large HD tvs. Beautiful sunrise and sunsets. Activities which we did not use, but a good variety. Free parking and wi fi.

I cannot say enough good things about our experience with Mike Ellis and the golf academy. We took the two day package that included our room, lunch both days and one on one instruction from 8am till noon each day. It was brutally hot, however, Mike managed our time and instruction beautifully, in spite of the heat. Course, facility, restaurants,... More
