Great golf experience!!

First time golfing in Palm Springs area and it was a great experience. Starter cautioned us to “add a club” and he was not kidding. Great diversity in course construction and fabulous views. Great value for the dollar and I would highly recommend this course to all golfers

Dunes Course

Fun course, not too difficult but challenging enough. Many fairways funnel toward the greens at drive landing anyway, then the sand traps surround the greens. Big screen GPS in the carts.

Great but challenging course!

I had just finished 6 rounds at local resort courses, all designed to keep pace of play fast and the higher handicap golfer happy with sloping roughs to direct errant shots back to the fairway. It was a shock to the system, and my ego to play a course designed to challenge both strategically and execution wise. The sign on the first tee said 7-15 handicappers should play the white tees. I am a 10 - 12 handicap and I must say I found I was sometimes in over my head hitting from the whites.
I usually find the spiel from the starter a waste of time, in thjs case his emphasis on hitting 1 or 2 stronger clubs into the numerous elevated greens was invaluable.
By all means try this course, if you are lucky enough to be grouped with someone who has played it before, be greatful. Most every hole has some nuances that should be explained.
The GPS and screens are the biggerst, most helpful I have ever experienced

Beautiful layout with fantastic mountain views

Always enjoy playing this course in the desert.
The panorama of the valley in itself is majestic.

Rude and unwelcome

Terribly rude at the pro shop. They clearly are angry they have to be there. But they don’t. They could just quote and maybe get replaced with friendly people. But that usually means the management is rude and bad. Sets the tone for the whole round. Go someplace where they want you there.

Pete Dye test

Enjoyable day of golf! Course runs through the wash area the first few holes. Back nine much more scenic. Course requires you to think your way around. Greens elevated and need a half club more on most approaches. Greens were in great shape and rolled true. Tees off behind an extremely slow group but the starter made them wait on 8 tee so we could play through. Staff was awesome on course and at the clubhouse and starter. Great day at a very affordable price!

Tough Green Complexes - Bring your short game

We got Pete Dyed on this course today, nice course winding around a wash area, but bring your "A" short game to this place. Fairways were a beautiful carpet, Greens are on the small side (Aim for the center on every green and you will have a descent birdie putt every time). Greens are raised and there a lot of bunkers. I love the challenge of the course. The way it winds through neighborhood is OK, not great. The price for playing before 8 a.m. was awesome for December in La Quinta.

Perfect Sunrise Round

If you want to see a golf course at its finest time. Play La Quinta Dunes at sunrise. From the sun hitting the mountains on the driving range to shining across the fairways and greens. It’s truly An amazing site. The course was in The best condition I’ve seen all year. Greens rolling true and fairways flawless. The starter Bob was great and friendly. As well as pro shop staff. Great experience. I’ll be back again this season.
