Actually played to my HCP. But I did shoot a 39 from the white tees on the front. Back shot 43 but had to grind the whole time. Very Challenging and left me exhausted but in a good way!

A tough but playable Pete Dye course - one of his most attractive but could have been in better condition.

Yes, it's a famous course by a famous architect but after having played it several times, I'm convinced that it's a terrible design. Unless you play this course many, many times, you have no clue where to his your tee shot and sometimes second shot. Just too many blind shots and too many penal lies within the fairway. The nice...

We played the course at the end of August and must say while it was tough going it was the most value for money round ever. We paid $44 each for 18 holes and that included green fees, practice range and balls, buggy with GPS, electronic scorecard with final card emailed, ice and water. The service from start to finish...

Yes - its hot in the summer in La Quinta. But for golf fanatics, PGA West/La Quinta offers some great deals. For the price of the stay, you also get unlimited golf, a $25 credit a day, and resort fees ($27) waived. The only caveat is that the Stadium course has a surcharge of $50 (which can be offset by...

Yes, playing the Stadium Course is expensive - $200+ in winter and over $100 even in early June when temperatures poke above 100 degrees. You sometimes can find discounted tee-times online (there are several websites - do a Google search) but even if you don't it is still worth playing. The Stadium Course is often rated as one of the... More

Not much to add to previous reviews of this being a beautifully designed course that has many challenges. I've played a few times now and would suggest people avoid bringing up the hype every hole and just relax and play. Also, play the tees suitable for your level and everyone will enjoy it more.
