Very slow pay. Took away all the enjoyment. Great views very good golf course. No driving range which also detracts from enjoyment

Excellent course in great shape (Dec 2014) with beautiful views. Lush fairways and greens were in very good condition. Fairways offer generous landing areas. Note that the "driving range" is just hitting off mats into a net about 10 yards away. Patio/restaurant is really nice. Look forward to playing here again.

This is a cracking course, well maintained with clever use made of what elevation variations they have Greens are very good. Pace of play was ok. Good shop for the Mrs to browse, and a very nice bar and grill for the after golf refreshments.

Had a last minute opportunity to play a round at Escena (my first time playing at this course). The fairways and greens were in really good, if not excellent, condition. The fairways are wide and forgiving. Fairway bunkers are strategically placed and can come into play on most holes. Par 3's played long but were a fair challenge. Played the... More

I tell all my friends to visit Escena. The view is fabulous of the golf course, Mt. Jacinto and Santa Rosa Mountains. You can sit out side, enjoy their Happy Hour and appetizers.

Perfectly kept golf course. Friendly staff and a beautiful clubhouse with great scenery, food and drinks. You can get a great price in the afternoons to include the cart.

My friend and I had a wonderful round of golf here -- from the great course conditions and friendly staff. The views are breathtaking, including the fountains and lake. It was a little windy (hence the windmills in the Palm Springs hills.) We will make this part of our golf circuit in the desert.

We have been golfing this premise since the course was re-opened some five years past. The management and staff are very courteous and welcome you back with a smile and most important of all, you are remembered from past golf dates. There is a membership card that is available and it does pay dividends. The course is excellent.
