We enjoyed the course so much the last time we were there, with so many courses in the Palm Springs area we decided to go back and bring a friend who had not been there before, again a great experience. Great setting, lay out etc. food is also great.

I read several different reviews on several sites before I decided to play here. All most all of the reviews gave the golf course very high marks and if there were any complaints they were about 1) Pace of play, 2) Customer service. However, one of the customer service complaints that gave the course 2 stars was because the course... More

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.
