This is an excellent golf course with 2 distinctly different nines. The front is pretty wide open on relatively flat terrain but Dye's elevated greens make for a good... read more

we came in for lunch after a round of golf. never got to order since after ten minutes no one came out to take our order. The 19th hole was vacant at noon time and can understand why if there is no one working just one person who spent most of his time in the kitchen. We left and headed... More

This is an excellent golf course with 2 distinctly different nines. The front is pretty wide open on relatively flat terrain but Dye's elevated greens make for a good test. The back nine is spectacular, particularly the last few holes that are built up against the mountains. The view from the 16th tee box is wonderful. The course was in... More

The course was in very good shape and we had a great round. The staff was great and the grounds beautiful. Of course with a Pete Dye course you get his typical elevated greens (seemed like all 18 were elevated), narrow fairways, railroad ties, you know---all of the Dye elements. We actually think that Pete doesn't like the bogey golfers... More

The La Quinta Mountain course is unique and scenic, wending its way along the base of several large mountains. It is not easy but it also rewards a good shot. The greens are reasonably fast and roll well. The course condition was excellent, especially given recent heavy rains. Well worth a try.

This is how golf was meant to be played. The course Is fun yet challenging and the scenery never gets old. Most rounds of golf if you are playing poorly you can't wait until the 19th hole. This is not one of them as the round could have gone on forever! The entire staff from the pro shop to the... More

Played a round of golf on the Mountain course yesterday with my wife and were joined by another twosome. Teed off late morning. We finished in 5 hours (30 minutes too long) thanks in part to SLOW PLAY by the 2 groups in front of us who were obviously beginner golfers. We saw the course marshal (1x) on the 9th... More

08:42 tee off with two other singles. Good breakfast (Eggs Benedict + coffee), nice starter but the highlight was the course. Beautiful condition, fairways and greens were emerald green. Front nine was good fun, back nine had unparalleled views and holes. Definitely a must next time I am in La Quinta

Again, a terrible start to a round of golf, the most unfriendly, miserable starter I ever met. But his idiocy was soon forgotten as we teed off. We waited for at least 5 minutes every hole, and there was three empty holes in front of the foursome ahead of us. They need a Marshall to manage the pace of play... More
