Reviewed May 9, 2013

2 gorgeous courses with desert landscaping; spectacular views! The city of Palm Desert ensures that the courses are manicured all year long.

“Wonderful deck overlooking mountains and golf course”
Reviewed April 23, 2013

We have eaten lunch here many times. Their food is consistently good and the views are to die for. We were a bit disappointed this time. My wife's Margarita seemed a bit watered down (warm day - maybe it had sat with melting ice). Also, the service was a bit disinterested. Overall, though, we'll be back. We have never had a bad meal here. You do pay a bit for the view, but it's worth it!

“Amazing afternoon of golf”
Reviewed April 12, 2013 via mobile

After playing the lackluster PGA courses, what a pleasure it was to play the mountain course at this facility. The course was in great shape. The views were also quite spectacular. The value to play here, also amazing. The only minus was the lack of practice range balls.
