When I booked this course, I found it hard to find. The entrance is located on the south side of Fred Waring between Washington and Jefferson. I had paid the greens fee online to save money. When I arrived I learned that didn't include a cart. This is a WALKING ONLY course and a pull cart is an extra $3.... More

This is probably the best short course I've every played. It's great to have 18 holes instead of having to play the same 9 holes twice. Very well maintained course and a good challenge. Played with my wife who is a newish player and we both had a great time playing this course. Great place to play for couples.

I can't say enough about this course. We come to the Palm Springs area every year and this year we wanted to take our golf loving 5 yr old son somewhere other than the practice area at Silver Rock. We called one shorter "executive course" and were told 16 and older only????? We then called Palm Royale and John said... More

We have played at Palm Royale pretty much every time that we stay at our place in Palm Desert for the past 30 years. It is a great course for fine tuning a short game and walking a full 18 holes in slightly over 2 hours. The greens fees are very reasonable, and the course is ALWAYS in fabulous shape!... More

If you don't have time for a full 18 this is a good alternative with all par 3's. Although a lot of the holes are the same distance from the white tees (80 to 95 yards) the challenge has to do with water carries and undulating greens.

We love this course for a great walk, a real challenge for your short game, and it's beautiful scenery. However, as I said it is a challenge for your short game and if you think because it is a par 3 it is a great course for a non-golfer that is not the case. If you want to come out... More

This is a beautiful course that is quite challenging! It has several water hazards .......I hate to mention how many balls we lost! However it's a fun course and a great course if you want to work on your short game.The course is beautifully groomed and it's very pretty because of all the water. The rates are very reasonable especially... More

My wife isn't crazy about playing 18 on full length course. This is perfect compromise by having challenging par 3 course. Also advantage that it is one of few desert courses that is an easy walk.

An executive (mostly par 3's)course. A great place to sharpen up your game. A great way to get over water terror!! Very reasonable.

At $20 for a round after 1pm, this is a gem in the desert for a fun, casual game of golf. The course was in very nice condition and it is a relaxing way to play 9 or 18 with a mix of golf abilities without breaking the bank.
