the sandwiches are ordinary, the view spectacular, and the potatoes are yummy. Sorry the food declined in quality. I used to need my fix there, but not anymore.

What a spectacular golf course. We literally jumped off a plane next door at the airport and were teeing off within the hour. The course is challenging but fair. This track was also in great shape. The only downside is there is no driving range. You warmup by hitting into a net which for someone that needs to get their... More

the course is beautiful and busy. 18 holes is about $90. We did the nine and dine, which is 9 holes and dinner. Your select from a designated menu, but it was good. Beautiful views from the club house.

I always enjoy Escena! Sitting outside on the patio overlooking the golf course and Mount San Jacinto for Sunday brunch or dinner is a real treat. The restaurant has a hip vibe, the drinks and food are consistently good and the staff very friendly. Some evenings have live music too. Check this place out -- you won't be disappointed.

Great views , beautiful room and patio , good food , poor service. Went with friends for dinner and though the meal was okay , the service was very poor. Our waitress was nice but after taking our orders we really never saw her again til she brought our bills. Never checked to ask if we wanted anything or how... More

My husband and I recently went to Palm Springs for a golf weekend with another couple and booked a round at Escena for the first day we were there. My husband had played there before and raved about it, so we knew going in that it would be nice. But it exceeded every expectation! The course itself is beautiful -... More

If you get in early or fly out late you can easy squeeze in a round before or after your flight. Nice track, plenty of challenge nice wide fairways and no tricks. Easy to figure this one out and not have to play it a couple times first, of course a few rounds always helps. Very cool clubhouse and restaurant... More

We had 1 last morning to play. This was right near the airport and on a couple of the 'top 5' lists I had found. We went out at 7am and staff was great. Course was in great shape - very open. Some deep grass, but your job is to stay out of it. Greens slow in the AM and... More

Great round of golf with my brother and brother in-laws, staff was very helpful getting us out, my rental clubs Callaway's were more than adequate for my skill set. Coarse was in great shape and great value. The food at the 10th tee was fresh and they had wide variety including a veggie option.
