This is one of the best courses in the area. The staff is extremely friendly and very accommodating. John the starter is a perfect gentleman and makes your round very enjoyable. The fairways were in great shape and the greens were putting around an 8 with no bumps. The traps were raked and full of sand. While this might be referred to as a resort course, it will provide enough of a challenge no matter how good you are. The par 3's from the Blue tees are challenging. Put this course on your "to play" list.

The lay out is good for all level of golf skills. The front nine gives you decent chance to make good scores. The finishing holes at the back nine though requires your full attention. I'm sure I'll play here again.

Played Palm course. Greens were plugged recently. That was my only complaint. But I played 54 holes starting at 6:30 and ending at 2:30. Everything was in good shape except the greens. Price was very reasonable. Scenery is beautiful. Definitely a course I'd play again. Staff was great.

Booked the Valley course, but got sent to the Palms course because of aerification. Palms course was great but the greens had just been aerified and sanded, so putting was an adventure.

Played 18 in about 3 hours, but the course is pretty empty when it's 105 degrees out there.

I'll play here again!

They were aerating many of the fairways, which was a bit annoying due to the noise of the machines and the dirt plugs on many fairways.

The have 2 courses at this Marriott, the other (Palms) was closed on this day, so why didn't they work on the closed course and leave the open course alone?

I come once a year and always play here at least once. It is never a disappointment, and this Tim was no different. They plugged many of the fairways and tee boxes recently. It was just a minor inconvenience. I'll keep coming back.

Love the Marriott Desert Springs experience. Course was in good shape for end of July. The humidity was extreme in the heat and we only played 15 holes. That was our choice as we are no longer" teenagers" even though we enjoy the heat. Staff on and off the course was first class and we were well treated! Very few other players on the course. and no delays.

If you can take the heat, this is one of the best deals in the Coachella Valley! Course was challenging for an intermediate golfer but not overly intimidating. Fairways and greens were in really good shape for this time of year, staff was excellent, and range balls were included in price. A real summer gem for the desert!

Commented on 07/04/2017

does not compute! if you wait 15 min per hole........ minimum, then you waited 4.5 hours and played 1.5 hours of golf which comes out to 5 min per hole to arrive at 5.5 hours and if you add the extra time from 15-20 min per hole you're up to a 7 hour or 8 hour round.

Great course with a challenging layout. Many ups and downs and uneven shots. Course is manicured the the finest degree (especially with the hot temperatures). Played in 3 hours (twosome) with no one really in back or ahead of us. Would definitely come back and play again.
