We golfed four times in the Palm Springs area and Escena was our favourite. Very friendly staff who gave clear instructions on the course before we went out. The course itself is forgiving and while it challenged my husband who is a good golfer, I as a novice golfer could still keep up. The pro shop is professional and the... More

The course was in great shape. The fairways were green and the greens were fast and true. The 4-some ahead of us were gambling so play was slow. The views are special and the airplane noise was not an issue with us. The cart came with an ice box on the cart and there was lots of water along the... More

Fantastic course...splurge and enjoy it...price is of course not cheap but at least once you have to experience the majestic mountains. Watching planes land and take off also a great bonus.

This course is next to the airport, and was frequently noisy as small planes arrived and departed. The course was in OK shape, but play was very, very slow, making it difficult to develop a rhythm. Those running the course seemed to think this was OK. The different holes present varying challenges. Some of challenges were a bit contrived. No... More

Great track, but on the day we played it was like a wind tunnel. The course was in very good shape and the greens were true. The course personnel were very accommodating as were the restaurant staff.

My wife and I worked with John at the clubhouse, who graciously allowed us to take some wedding photos there with our small group of family. We were so impressed with the attention to detail Escena paid to their grounds and facilities. Our pictures turned out beautifully, and while the photographers were taking pictures of just my wife and I,... More

The course in beautiful shape but it takes to long to play. Must golf courses encourage a 4 hour round. Sad to say it's 5 hrs plus. And no marshals on the course either. Makes it very hard to enjoy

Go for a meal at the clubhouse. Breathtaking mountain views in a beautiful golf course setting. We went to sit on the patio to watch the sunset and it was well worth it. Staff could not have been more helpful and accommodating. It was happy hour so drinks and a limited menu was available at a reasonable price.

Thank Joanne B
