We played twice with friends who are residents - generally a good course which had some very challenging holes. Unfortunately, the course is undergoing a major re-design to reduce watering requirements. This means occasionally having to worry about workers.

My tennis team competed at a tournament at Palm Desert. While the facilities were beautiful, there were many courts that had patches on them, with dead spots. Very disappointing.

Thanks for the feedback, we are always pleased to hear our guests had fun! Under new ownership, the course is in great shape. We have a fun layout, generous fairways which is great for a beginner but our greens are well protected by bunkers which is a challenge for a more advanced golfer as well. More

This is a great spot to park and walk around Palm Desert. If you need to shop for souvenirs for family the Visitors Center has a great selection. Staff was very helpful.

Thanks for the feedback, we can always improve our customer service. We appreciate hearing about the condition of the course as we continue to improve it as well. While we don't have a driving range, the large practice green, chipping and bunker areas are great to work on your short game. Hope to see you again! More

Great improvement to fairways and greens. Money has definitely been pumped into what use to be a goat track. Staff is only marginally friendly. You have to find your way around on your own. Surrounding neighborhood has some very run down areas. I would only play this course when you can get a decent discount
