Truly a desert course. A challenge but fair. The club pro does everything to make your experience pleasurable. Staff is great and a must do if your in the La Quinta area and play golf. It's also nice to sit on the patio and take advantage of the great view.

My wife and I both really liked the golf course. The fairways are very wide, but anywhere off the fairway lurked the desert on both sides. We liked the view that provided us --> it framed your target very well. I was driving the ball very good that day; good drives provided lots of roll as they hadn't begun overseeding... More

This course is tough to find and the PGA folks don't make it easy on visitors. After we arrived I discovered that they were booked solid because this was the only course not closed for overseeding. The course is in fine shape with fast greens and smooth fairways. There are lots of bunkers here but they can be avoided. The... More

This is one of the nicest courses I've played. A real treat. Stay out of the fairway bunkers and play from the appropriate tee boxes and you will have a great time. Fairways are pretty wide though the greens were quick. Conditioning is excellent and the views are magnificent. The cart girl made a great gin and tonic. Only negative... More

Our GPS kept taking us to locked gates but after a few phone calls we made it. The course plays long and the greens are killer fast. The fairways were not all that green. We likely won't return and that will make more tee times available to the good golfers

I've played a lot of the desert courses in the Palm Springs area and this is one of the best designs around. Golfer friendly, great conditions, I will be going back for more.

Played golf at the Norman Course twice during our week long stay. Well-groomed, great views and a fair test from all teeing areas. Our group enjoyed the practice facilities as the chipping area, range and putting facility were all in close proximity to each other. By far, the lady in the Pro Shop was the most accommodating we encountered all... More

Played golf in Palm Springs for the week and this was my favourite course! Great views, a variety of holes, complimentary range balls and course in great shape. Would definitely return. Found a 'hot deal' discount, so even better!
