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!

The grass is green an full. The greens roll great and are reasonably fast. Some. Tough holes. Some long and short holes. Easier and tougher holes. I'd certainly go back

The most beautiful course I have ever played. We played on Christmas day and had the course to ourselves. Immaculate shape from fairways to bunkers to greens. Everything was perfect. A pretty straight forward course and must play when in the area.

The course was a pleasure to play. Played there the middle of December. Was not too busy, or hot,the marshals are very friendly and the course is well laid out. Carts come with the green fees. No extra charges. Worth the money, which is less in low season which this was.

I spent 10 days in la quinta in Dec, played 4 courses and this was the best. I tend to be a greens fee shopper and wont pay over $100. I got the Norman Course for $91 by going direct to the pro shop after trying unsuccessfully on Golf Now. Shop staff was very friendly, course was in perfect condition,... More

this course looks pretty but is not a creative or fun course to play. It is basically a hit it down the middle golf course with long straight fairways. If you do hit your ball off the fairway, you will be on hard dirt. It is not sand like Arizona or Florida courses. It is hard, really hard clay dirt.... More
