I have been to the Desert Willow both to play golf with my sister and her family & to have breakfast with the Old Bold Pilots. The golf was terrific ( I play for the enjoyment & beauty of the course).

This Firecliff course is always in great condition. The pace of play is very good. The views are beautiful. The greens run true. I would highly recommend. Good for low and high handicappers. The clubhouse is nice and the pro shop well stocked.

If you are in the Palm Desert area you should play these courses. The courses are in amazing shape and the holes are interesting. Another thing that stands out is how well run this property is. You don't ever have to wait on a shot like other public courses. The driving range, putting area and chipping area are first class.... More

Although it is not an easy course, I love playing here. It is reasonable and a must do for golfers visiting the desert.

We really loved playing golf at this Resort. We played both the Firecliff and Mountain View courses and loved the challenge of each course. The scenery was beautiful and the courses were well maintained. Staff was very friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend the courses to other golfers! Hopefully we'll get to return and play there again!

Places I've golfed in Palm. The landscaping here is beautiful, even if you don't golf, stop into this resort and enjoy the short scenic drive to clubhouse for breakfast or a cocktail. Can be expensive to play here but also kind of a treat. The fairways are much wider and more forgiving than appears from most of the tee boxes,... More

Don't miss the opportunity to play on either of the two beautiful and challenging courses, surrounded by mountains and perfectly maintained. Afterwards, or even if you don't play golf, dine in the lovely dining room overlooking the courses or sit on the flagstone patio to enjoy a wonderful and reasonably priced lunch. And don't forget to look up when you... More

Beautiful landscaping, challenging and varied hole levels, perfect desert golfing experience! I prefer the noth course, but the south course is just as lovely! Plus, you cannot beat the cost to golf here.
