The hotel lobby was beautiful. After a 2 hour drive the air conditioning in the lobby was great. Checked in with Collin and he was great. Perfect in every way. Helpful, professional and very nice. He asked what kinda BD of room that we would like. I told him we were meeting friends so he looked up their name and... More

This is one of the most beautiful resorts in the desert area. Some of the workers may need a little more training in customer service, however. Check-in was very difficult, even though the reservation was made weeks in advance. We arrived a little early. Check in time is 3 PM, but we couldn't get in till about 4:30 PM. I... More

A typical Pete Dye course lots of tricks of the eye to get you to question your shot. All the employees are fantastic, super friendly and helpful. We enjoy this course a lot. You will like the challenge. Be prepared for hole 14 2 lakes to get to the green.

Our experience started badly with no staff at the bag drop. The phone number listed on the bag drop sign went into voicemail. We literally spent ten minutes on hold with the resort before a human picked up. The shuttle cart came right away and drove us and our clubs to the pro shop. The staff were friendly but didn't...

Course was in good condition, just not great. Based on many prior visits, guess I expected a little more. Fairways were full of unfilled divots as were some tee boxes, fairway grass was cut very short, and unlike some of the other courses we played this week had little grass cushion to play off. Greens were decent but a number... More

Really in great shape and staff was exceptionally friendly. Some fun and challenging golf holes...very beautiful. Tough greens...elevated so be careful. I'd love to play it again.

I took my girls for their first real golf playing experience and we all had a great time. The course itself was not the nicest I've played in Palm Springs and in fact we had to do alot of "off-roading" with the golf cart. Nonetheless the my daughters had a great time and we virtually had the whole course to... More

Course was fun to play and they have a 4 hour round goal and we made it no problem even with a full course. Putting green by the first tee is fairly small so you might want to putt first before heading to the Dye range area. Nice facilities and helpful staff, recommend playing it.

From beginning to end this was an experience to avoid. Upon arrival we were notified by the director of golf that my wife and I couldn't play today because they were having a shot gun start event.
