HOT and Toasty 115!

Had a 0609am T time and got to course at 0540 and it wasn't open for business. Kind of tough to enjoy the range and amenities. Course in good shape and will play there again.

First and last time

I would never play this course again. Fairways are too narrow for my taste and the rough conditions are appalling. A cow oat urge is more appealing.
Far too many horrible lies just off the green that would not allow the player to lift a shot. Way too much water to called Dunes. Really bad experience.

Sandy greens

Course is everything you would want, except they had recently sanded the greens. No mention of that at check in or from the starter. As with all greens when they have been sanded, they are inconsistent green to green...Should have known before I started my round!

another great day at La Quinta

Both La Quinta courses are great. The Dunes is the less expensive and less scenic and less demanding course, but it is well maintained and a fun course to play.

La Quinta Dunes

Played this course last year when we were in town and enjoyed it so much that We came came back. It’s one of my favorites. Great layout, fair and in good condition with challenging par 3’s Nice practice area with driving range balls included with your green fees. The restaurants/bar wasn’t very busy but there’s always Old Town La Quinta with several great restaurants including Arnie’s Place just a short drive away.

Very nice layout.

Course was in very nice condition. Greens were a bit hard and had hard time holding ball on green. Greens were a bit hard to putt on and were a bit rough. Fairways were excellent and traps had ample sand.
