My husband had his second visit here and again the staff were so helpful. Emailing us when we had questions etc. Beautiful course and nothing too much trouble for overseas travellers who have no equipment but wanted a game of golf. Not expensive either

This course is one of the best you'll play in the valley. The design is pure Nicklaus with a premium put on being able to work the ball from left to right. The course itself is beautiful with pristine fairways, subtle elevation changes and greens that will leave you scratching your head. There's ample bunkering, strategically placed and water that...

Visited this golf club as we had heard rave reviews. We had booked a tea time and it looked as though we would be a 2 ball as I checked on the interenet just before we left. We arrived paid our 100 dollars each to find that we were joined up with another 2. That wouldn't have been a problem... More

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.
