“Great golf and atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2013

We aren't that good of golfers but we enjoyed this course and fisherman's landing for wine after. The course is VERY hilly and challenging and gorgeous!! Use golf now and you'll save too.

“Beautiful well maintained with lightening fast greens”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2012

Visually beautiful, challenging courses, helpful staff & beautiful exotic birds. A real pleasure to play on either course. Well placed water & bunkers add to the "charm".?

“Valley Course - JW Marriott Desert Springs”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 25, 2012

Course in fantastic shape. Beautiful views across the front 9 and some of the back. Some of the back 9 have road noise and a bit too much residential/time share. Bunkers were in good shape, too, good depth of sand. Challenging for all players because of the rolling fairways & greens, and several water features. $10 for a sandwich at the snack bar. Not very much wind at all. Will return on the next trip.

“A rip off at the office!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 4, 2012

Watch out if you stay at PDG as the bureaucrats at the office demand $150 cash from you just to register and take your pic. The complex itself is great...but ambushing us for this ransom money disgusted us. We are only there one month and if you don't pay, they double it the second week. Welcome to PDG!
