A great concept for an upscale golf course! - Marriott's has built some 800+ expansive rooms around this course. Not crowding the course, but working with it.. The course has plenty of sand traps and fairways designed to give advantage to those that can reach roll point ridges and stay center away from traps and water ways.. In May the... More

We had our three young adult grand kids here and played a round at Shadow Ridge. In the week that they visited, they played 12 rounds, and Shadow Ridge was their favorite. The fairways are thick, greens very good and overall condition great. I will play Shadow Ridge again.

Beautiful course. No map provided - difficult to see the water obstacles through the small hills... Pro shop clerk told us we could take the golf cart with a cart attendant to the car to pick up the golf bags. Golf cart attendant said he never heard of this. Awfully big, full parking lot. Did not want to give up... More

Awesome track to play if your in the Palm Springs area. Lots of bunkers protect every green not allowing for mis hit balls to roll up. Very well kept course that has an excellent practice facility. like all desert courses plays a lot tougher on windy days. Full service clubhouse offers a wide range of food and drink selections.

Marriott's Shadow Ridge Golf course is one of the best in the area. Tough but fair in great condition. It's not cheap but worth it -- especially if you feel like splurging. The practice area is terrific. Unlimited range balls await on a traditional driving range and then a surprise...two short game practice areas can give you all you could... More

Came out about 30 minutes before our round, should have come earlier. The practice facility is excellent, stalls for wedges and driving range. The practice balls are in excellent condition. There is also large bunkers to practice your sand game. Course was in excellent condition, the greens were fast. The layout is mostly amongst hotel buildings with a few holes... More

This was the best and last round of the week booked last minute. The course is extremely well maintained and beautiful. The practice area is unbelievable. Probably the best I have seen anywhere. A descent challenge. Next time I'm in the area, I definitely want to play it again.

This review comes from Canadian PGA Professional. Everything about this course says, "play me". Generous layout, great conditions, awesome service, great food....what more could you want? Can't wait to play it again. We were there for a 6:30am tee time having arrived at 6:05am. The halfway house was open for coffee...come on...that was awesome.

This is the second time we've stayed at Shadow Ridge over the past year. The facilities are great and my 50+ parents love the activities. The guys like the nice course though difficult. The golf course bar and grill leaves a bit yo be desired though. Service so only okay and prices are a bit high.
