Shadow Mountain is a classic executive course design that is challenging and lends itself to walking. A flat track with well placed hazards offers a comfortable pace of play of 3 1/2 hours. The fairways and greens are well managed. I am very picky about greens, and SM has challenging with moderate to fast greens that run true. I can't say enough about this course.

It was a super day for golf. Only complaint is that there was no starter and several of us waited for over 15 minutes with no one going out on the 1st hole. We and another group asked if we could go out early. At first they said no but then agreed we might as well go. After the group of women let me and my husband through after the 4th hole, we had no one in front of us the rest of the way and we sailed through. I think they were hesitant to let those of us who got a good deal on Golf Now to go out early but that was silly since there was no one on the course. Glad they came around and let us go early. Looked like lots of later backups. Course was in the best shape we've seen it this year.

We're average golfers who wanted a shorter course to warm up on the first day we arrived in Palm Springs. I read reviews on the course and generally they seemed positive. We found a great price on Golf Now and booked it. We were not disappointed! The staff were great. We needed a loaner bag since we travel with two sets of clubs (mine and my wife's) in one bag for airplane travel. Jennifer (manager?) was GREAT. She found a bag for us and was so helpful with directions/tips about the course. We were greeted at the bag drop with great service including running a cart right to our card. The starter was helpful and allowed us to leave a little early. The course itself was in SUPER condition ... very nice fairways and excellent rolled greens that were fast, but fair. While there were some fairways that were a bit narrow/tight, you're rewarded for accuracy. Playing this course with shorter, but straighter drives and careful fairway wood shots is smart. There are nice amenities (bathrooms, ball cleaners, etc) throughout the course. And, how nice to have an ice machine with cups/lids and cold water before teeing off near the clubhouse. In summary, this was a GREAT experience and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. For those of you who are 'big hitters' (and can be 'long and wrong') then perhaps this isn't your course. We are bogey golfers and found plenty of challenge! Great staff, great course, great afternoon ... a 3.5 hour round for an 18-hole round was great. Thanks staff at Shadow Mountain for a great start to our golfing vacation!

If you are visiting the area, and want to get a deal on a good course that offers excellent fairways and greens that are well maintained then, go to Shadow Mountain. You won't be disappointed. The bunkers are ok, and may need some new sand, but all in alI, I will continue to play here. If ypu need lessons, ask for Jennifer. An Excellent pro.

The course is short. But deceptively difficult. There are plenty of dog legs: to the right , to the left. If you want to shoot par, you'll have to know how to shape the ball. I'm a mid handicapper, so this course and it's challenges appeal to me. The greens are smallish, so you'll need to be accurate on your approaches.

Support staff is uncommonly friendly. Even though I'm not a member, I was treated as such. Great bargain and experience.

Love this course one of our favorites. Only 2 issues; sand is too hard in the bunkers and more so, ordered 2 hot dogs which were basic at best but worse, cost $10 each!!

May be a suggestion to bring something to eat.

The pace of play was extremely slow. Course marshall advised us (2 women) that we were holding up the play by the 2 people behind us. We play ready golf and are fast pace players. We could not move any faster than the 2 foursomes in front of us. At some points there were 3 groups on one hole. That's a marshall issue. A single player joined our group and he also advise us that the old miserable man behind was complaining about our pace of play.

I would not recommend this course for this reason as well as narrow fairways.

Staff friendly but marshall not doing his job.
