The Roughs have not been mowed. Lost every ball hit into the roughs. Wind is a major factor. Based on price, there are many better deals on golfing in the area.

Had a great time! Played right at day break to beat the heat and enjoyed the entire experience. Good people to play with both times I played.

Played the front nine and really enjoyed. Then the winds started and it was an entirely different course. This is an excellent golf course when the wind is not blowing. I was told after I played the course, to not plkay when the windmills are turning. Overall a great course, great clubhouse and good lounge and patio.

This is a great course for visitors with more than fair rates for rental of clubs and carts, as well as reasonable green fees. Comfortable, unassuming coffee shop, very pleasant staff, small pro shop.

One of my favorite courses in the area, some of the holes (especially the 18th) are must photo ops, they are so beautiful. Green fees are reasonable for such a beauty. The only downside is that, being in Desert Hot Springs, the wind can really blow sometimes, but you knew that when you saw all the windmills anyway.

I booked this course on line and found a price of $69.00. When we got there they charged us $58.00 Now that's a good deal in the Palm Spring area at this time of the year. Better yet we finished in 3 3/4 hours. Now that's what I call fun.

This course was just simply beautiful. Played the tips. (Big mistake). Haha. The course was so long. Many of the holes I barely reached the fairway (and I average 290 off the tee). However. The course was manicured to perfection and I can't wait to return. Is put this course up against any in the area. And I'm sure it... More
