La Quinta property houses five golf courses, this one is the lesser of the La Quinta named two courses. The Dunes course does deliver a challenging layout for all levels of players. Easy to have a round under 4 hours, course management ensures effective play and timing.

Excellent golf course run by the La Quinta Resort and part of the PGA West Course reservation system. Golfed it 3 times in early Feb and it was in perfect shape with dormant bermuda grass perfectly laying out the fairways and greens. The staff are very friendly and make you feel like you are at a private course - bag... More

Weather was absolutely perfect the entire week. Greens were in excellent condition. I found the overall layout ok. Has a few really good holes that are very challenging. If I were to go back I would choose any of the courses at PGA west over these two but there pretty good if your looking for a change.

Coures need a lot of work Not one i would recommend because of the price and quality of the course Try Silver Rock GC for the money

La Quinta Resort "Dunes" course is at times amazing and other times boring! The overall course is great, fairways and greens were awesome! Greens were receptive, semi tough but rolled true & fair! Lots of bunkering and they were in great shape! Tees were weird, small & most were NOT FLAT...?!! Lots of "areas under long term construction" and some... More

The courses are in horrible condition, the range was CLOSED over the noon hour, staff offer little if any service, and there are limited if any yardage markers when you land in the middle of the fairway. Mountain or the Dunes, they are just a waste of time. Great views but you can get that anywhere is Palm Springs. Spend... More

We have been playing Dunes and Mountain for the last 25 years and we liked it. The staff is very nice and helpful. This year, we were told that there were quite some damages after bad weather late 2014. Many other courses also had damages, but Dunes and Mountain are still in poor shape. If we would have known, we... More
