We have golfed several courses in the valley over the years and this is our favorite. In the Spring you're surrounded by beautiful snow capped mountains. Very challenging course and beautiful. As to the staff... First class. The instructional staff provides short clinics (great for the beginning of the season tune up) and full clinics. Barry and David are engaging... More

If you know someone who owns a time/share Villa here, like my wife and I do, you can get on for MUCH LESS that the posted rates with their help. Another suggestion is to book the earliest twilight time and show up 1 hour early. Many times, if the course isn't busy, they will let you out earlier. The course... More

As villa owners here at Mission Hills we come out annually from our Florida home. We bought here a number of years ago specifically for the many very good golf venues here in the Valley. We consider the Dye and Player courses to be among the better quality and challenging venues ergo why we purchased our villa here. The Player... More

We played the Pete Dye Course twice and found it really well kept and fun to play. The staff was friendly and helpful. We will play it again.

We played both Gary Player and Pete Dye. Gary wins easy. Service just isn’t quite the same. No complimentary callaway golf balls. Rental clubs plain out suck. I got one mens with no pitching wedge or 7 iron. My 8yr old got the junior with 4 clubs and this guy knows what he is doing, probably the best and most... More

I've played dozens of the courses in the Coachella Valley and most of them are great, this is no exception. The course is in great shape and is market priced.

Over the years we have played many of Pete Dye's courses, all of which we have loved. They are all challenging but still playable for most levels of players. We therefore had great hopes for this one too, but it was a let-down. Each hole is named for one of his creations and supposedly mimics one of the holes on... More

I always enjoy playing courses managed by Troon. In this case, I thought the course was fair from all tees (we played from the whites) yet was still plenty challenging. As usual, it was in great shape amd well manicured. The staff was helpful, and the rates were in line with the condition of the property. It was a great... More

Great course. Not hard for the average golfer from the white tees. Fairways are wide with narrow areas around the greens. Greens are multi-level but fair.
