Beautiful course and the club house has great house made potato chips. Our bartender was great. The starter had some good tips. It’s a public course so it plays slow, but the pro shop made some accommodations when we couldn’t finish. Really cute bunnies too....More

This course play every time we are here. Book online for best rates has been my experiance. Challanging layout with wide fairways. Great views and conditions. Only drawback is no driving range just a net to hit practice balls into

There is no finer a place to eat in Palm Springs. Sitting outside on their patio and watching the sunset behind the mountains is absolutely incredible. The service is great, the food has lots of options and is tasty (and not expensive). But, its the...More
