This was the last course we played on a weeks visit to California from the U.K. ....course starters very good as was the practice ground. We started off with breakfasts at the course, with many saying probably the best breakfast at any of the courses we visited. Great view from bar/dining area, facilities very good. Disappointed though as another person... More

Everyone I spoke to said this was a must play course before leaving the area; it is but the course didn't quite live to to the hype. The course is lovely and I loved the front nine more than the back. The back nine has, in my opinion too many houses surrounding the fairways. The short par 3 in like... More

Got to play this course for the first time in 20 years -- great turf, no rough, almost no trees, many varied changes in elevation, and beautiful scenery of the crisp mountain landscape as the course weaves its way through an exclusive housing development. I went to Indio specifically to play this course, and it was well worth it!

Simply beautiful layout and scenery around this course. The better of the two La Quinta branded courses, pricier but worth it. Efficient play with course well monitored so all enjoy an under 4 hour round. Challenging with excellent course conditions.

We enjoyed our round but we were constantly having to guess where bunkers were and even which way to hit the ball off the tee. This course is overpriced. No GPS on carts no course map. Oh we were told after the round that we could download an App free or buy a course yardage book at the pro shop.... More

The setting and layout of this course never fails to impress. And the overall experience is always fantastic. Staff are welcoming, efficient and helpful. Particularly Tim the genial Starter... My wife and I both walked and carried and this adds to the enjoyment tremendously. And when we played our rounds early we were round, as a 3 ball in 3... More

What a great assortment of layouts and ample challenge for any level. The setting is lovely at the foot of the reddish Santa Rosa Mountains, but that makes dark arrive early, so plan accordingly. 4 hour round was not hard to accomplish. Terrific staff and Pros, very nice teaching there--Brian Mahoney was excellent.

I was quite impressed with the Mountain Course. The driving range was top notch as was the service. The course itself was very picturesque with stunning mountain views on many holes. The mountains not only made for great scenery, they can actually come into play on several holes if you're a bit wild with your shots--I'm embarrassed to say that... More

The early morning flight into Palm Springs allows us to get nine holes in on our first day and so we decided to play a course on the resort we were staying at. We got a shuttle to the course and the great service started there and continued through the Pro Shop, starter, club cleaner, and wait staff in the... More
