Having played this course numerous times over the past few years and enjoyed it immensely, I took a group of friends to play there in February 2015. The green fee ($140) was excessive given the condition of the course, no GPS on the golf carts, unfriendly staff, and poor condition of the driving range.

Best golf course in La Quinta for views and service. Some holes are free from luxury homes-just you and nature. The whole experience was a pleasure-the pro shop check in to drinks in clubhouse afterwards (beautiful view as well) made the afternoon the highlight of our trip.

I've played a lot of golf in the Desert and this course is still one of the most visually awe inspiring courses. From the driving range - where you literally hit into the mountain to the view of almost every single hole. The one down side is the 18th. You literally go through the most incredible 17 holes of golf... More

This course is a bit dry in some places and the first few greens are a little tore up but the overall beauty is breathtaking. Several holes play along the beautiful Santa Rosa mountains and some of the greens have signifigant speed and break to them. Well worth playing if you can get an online deal.

For a Sunday morning, the course played quick & we didn't have to wait at all. The front 9 is nice but the back 9 is spectacular. Great views! Course us in really good shape. Worth the round for just under $100. Downside; The driving range doesn't allow practice of woods.

Just played the course; please play somewhere else. After reading all reviews of public access courses in the area, I settled on this and it was very disappointing. Very poor conditioning, and actually a very uninteresting design. Only played Faldo Course at Marriott Shadow Ridge but that was much better in conditioning and overall interest.

Great course with signature 16th hole 150 yard par 3. Great service too. Course is recovering from an apparent flood. Lots of patches of transplanted grass. But it will be back... Discounted rates through recovery period. Played the course twice this week.
