Two gorgeous golf courses finish at the inspiring restaurant. Outdoor bar and fire pits. Absolutely lovely.

Can't believe this is a public course ! It was phenomenal when we played it in April 2015. Staff is excellent, rates are reasonable, and the corse is a dream to play !

What a beautiful setting and great tasting brunch on a Sunday morning. The view is down the 18th fairway and although the brunch is great there are also individual plates that you can order that are also very tasty. Prices are very much in line with other places but they don't always have the beautiful view.

This is one of the best patio's in the Coachella Valley. Food selections are nice, I like the salads. They will cook your burger any way that you like. It's a great place for lunch. LOVE IT!

They have two beautiful golf courses that are challenging, but fair fun tests of golf for any golfer...low to high handicappers would like these courses. Beautiful club house. Very good restaurant. Inside or outside seating with great views of the courses and mountains. A definite place to play.

We had the pleasure of stopping in for after golf cocktails and eats after a great day of golf at Desert Willow Golf Resort. We were looking forward to our reservation for that night at the Music and dinner under the stars buffet, but were told that our reservation was not made properly and they were booked. We spoke with... More

We are in Palm desert each year and always make it a point to visit the patio at Desert Willow. We had attended the street fair at the college and thought this would be a good choice for breakfast. We were quickly seated on the patio in the shade. 20 minutes later we hailed a bus boy to ask for... More

Stopped in for lunch on the advice of a friend. Simply delicious. Girls had shrimp appetizer and salads. We had salads and fish tacos. Sampler dessert was divine. A nice leisurely lunch on a warm spring day.
