Played here at 8:30. Stayed at the resort so very convenient. Round took 4-1/4 hours. Course in great shape on fairways but some bare areas if you can't keep it on the fairway. Views are very nice. Greens were a bit more difficult than I'm used to and often were surrounded by bunkers (which were not in great shape). You'd... More

It is August. It is over 110 degrees. No one tees up a golf ball after 10:00 and most want to be off the course by then. You would think courses would bend over backwards for the few brave souls who want to brave the heat. Not at Marriott's Shadow Ridge. My partner and I call about an expired UnderPar... More

This is a lovely resort! It is well maintained and the grounds are very beautiful with flowers and flowering shrubs. There are about 4 different pools all well cared for.There is lots of activities for the kids/teens (game room, movie theater, crafts) The staff were very nice, but young and some are little inexperienced. I called the front desk because... More

For those who come to billyart for an honest review you will always find a positive point somewhere in my narrative. If you are looking to drive the fastest GOLF CARTS anywhere west of the Mississippi you have come to the right place. They might even give Bubba Watson a run for his hovercraft money. They were like wow!!! Now... More

Beautiful location, large rooms especially bathroom, full kitchen, loved the view. You are close to restaurants, shopping, and other sites to visit with easy travel to those locations. Large pools grant relief from the sun. There is limited parking under the awning to keep the cars cool. The condo could use an upgrade in furnishings and cleaning. Marriott usually has... More

Have stayed here multiple times for business conventions. The accommodations are of good quality. The golf course is well done and a challenge. The restaurants are also excellent. Great spot for business or weekend getaway.

Played here with my wife & mate. What a great golf course. The fairways a beautifully contoured and the greens were fantastic. I haven't had many courses in Palm Springs but this was by far the best.

Nice course,great pro shop ,very good practice facilities.we played the combo tees which I found way too short for this course as it brought more sand into play and I didn't play most of my irons. Very well kept and housing was well off course so could swing away. Very tough greens with different levels and many were steeply crowned... More

Marriott shadow ridge is an amazing course ( of course all Marriott courses are great) . 4 of us played a round and the course is in pristine condition. Great pro shop, driving range was included in our price, and pleasant starter who has been there 10 years. I am not a great golfer , however the fairways are wide... More

Went with 12 person group and they took great care of us. Staff was awesome from pick-up at bag drop to maintaining pace of play. Facilities were very nice...best we saw in a week. The course was in very good shape...well maintained, greens were pure, a great layout. When we go back...we will go here.
