I would hope that others that rated this golf club poorly would give it a more recent try. This golf club has made remarkable improvements over the last six months. We very much appreciate the attitude of professionalism, consistency and courtesy established at the Club. They have a new general manager and all new employees. They've hired some very fine professionals and mixed in young and eager employees who are learning the business of customer service and doing a very nice job. This is a big improvement over the past. Additionally, the physical improvements in course landscaping, playability, appearance, etc., are remarkable. Once again you can be proud to bring family and friends to the Golf Club at La Quinta. We have seen dramatic improvement in recent months. The new sand in the greenside bunkers is terrific. The greens are looking and playing great again. The weeds on the perimeter have been mitigated and, although not perfect, the totality of weeds throughout the course is improving. The tee boxes are better, the condition of the water in the lakes and water management throughout the course, has markedly improved. The club now has a dress code posted at the front desk and it appears they are enforcing it--not seeing tee-shirts and denims on the course or the practice facilities. The number of "five-some's", which makes for long waits, has decreased. The first impression of the Club when you drive up to the entrance is much better--the landscaping and cleanliness of the entrance area has greatly improved. The removal of the Acacia around the first tee is a huge improvement. In short, this is once again a very fine golf course that homeowners and outside players can be proud of and recommend highly to others.
When you combine all these golf club improvements with the opening of an outstanding new restaurant, Bistro 60, it's quite an accomplishment in six months. Club management and employees should be proud of what they have accomplished.
I highly recommend giving this tremendous layout a try--now great views and vistas combined with outstanding improvements. It's a terrific value.
