Desert Willow is a lot like other golf courses in the Palm Desert area....fair if you hit the ball in the fairway and monstrous if it strays into the cactus and desert outside play. it is more expensive than it is worth, and part of that is one of the worst customer service staffs I have ever had to deal with. They couldn't care less if you ar ethere or not.

Great golf lessons and golf school academy. Mountain view and firecliffe courses are amazing. Course is a 15 on a scale of 1-10.

BEAUTIFUL 36 holes (2 courses); the views cannot be beat and the courses are in excellent shape. Courteous staff and excellent food. Don't miss the opportunity to golf there and enjoy your time at the restaurant after your 18 holes of great fun.

Even if you do not golf, you have to come to Desert Willow for the designer vista. Come have a meal on a fabulous terrace. Who cares about the menu and the service; both very good. You have come to drink in the view; which is outstanding. In a very short period of time this valley has spawned over 125 golf courses and an endless gaggle of gated communities; all with their signature fountains irrigating the desert in the torturous afternoon sun . They say the aquifer is limitless, but I don't believe it. So for the moment, forget our excesses, and just enjoy man's creativity. Behold how we can ingeniously arrange plants, flowers and grasses so that they can appear both wild and groomed at the same moment in time.
