“Impressive golf courses”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

Had three great rounds here and really enjoyed them. Firecliff course is much more playable than I'd been told and Mountain View Course is very good too. Staff at the clubhouse was very helpful and helped explain a good deal that I could use. I would love to play here again.

“Beautiful playable public course”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013

This is a very high quality public course. We are not particularly expert golfers, and had a delightful time playing -- so it probably isn't too hard! It is beautifully landscaped and very nicely maintained. Worth a round.

“Great Golf and Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

The golf course is wonderful but we also come here to enjoy the patio dining overlooking the golf course. The food is wonderful, especially breakfast, and the view is gorgeous!

“Great Patio”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013 via mobile

Had a very nice bruch here with friends. Food was very good, service was ok and the views and setting was great. Surprising for a place like Palm Desert, not that many really nice outdoor spots to eat. This is a good one.
