Owner description: This short 3,350-yard executive course features fairways guarded by vegetation and some water- and sand-trap challenges. Also caters to families with an 18-hole miniature golf course.

$22 for 9 holes, worth about 50 cents. I've never been as disappointed with a golf course as I was last week. Bare tee boxes and greens. Non-existent markers, not always sure what hole we were on. Bunkers haven't been maintained in a long time, grass growing in them and sand packed down. How they in good conscience can collect $22 for this travesty is puzzling. Cimarron pebble course is so much better -first class-for not much more money.
There's a lot of potential here but.....

We played at Bel Air Greens last March, and we quite enjoyed it for a fun, fairly easy, course near downtown Palm Springs. When we visited again this January, we found the course very run down. The greens are terrible - they have not been seeded in a while - and the geese and ducks have pretty much taken over the whole place. For the money, this is not worth it. The Palm Royale in La Quinta offers much better value for an executive course, as does Pebble at Cimaron.

I think this 9 hole is past its prime. It is a city owned course. However it is barely open. I had to knock on the door to pay. Then He over charged me! The holes are nice at least the Canadian Geese who live there think so. I love these little course so I had fun but just dont set the bar too high!

We looking for an Executive course (9 holes) for our 2 children to get course experience. At $10 for 9 holes, you won't find less expensive golf. But this little course has gotten very sad over the years. Lots of stagnant water, sand traps which needed fixing and dirt patches. Several of the holes do not have flags so you have to take a few minutes to figure out where you are shooting.

The pros - the staff are extremely nice, and there was only one other couple on the entire course. So we could take our time and let the kids take as many practice shots as they wanted. There is plenty of shade and when it starts inching up to 100 degrees in the summer, that is appreciated.

The first four holes are where you need to make score as all are par or even birdie holes. Thereafter, with the exception of hole 8, the course gets tougher, with water lurking. Hole 9 is the sting in the tail.

The staff are very friendly and the club pro is very helpful.

Good value for money as I have recently played the course 12 times.
