Great track

A tough desert course amidst some of the best golf in the USA. This is one of the best venues in the Coachella Valley and is at arguably the best resort in the desert. You can't go wrong here and you could easily pay twice what I paid and still get a value. Holes 14-16 go through a chasm in the surrounding mountains, hence the name "Mountain Course." Very picturesque and the tee at 16 is certainly a picture spot with La Quinta Valley in the background. Make no mistake though, these are some TOUGH finishing holes with the three hardest holes in the last 5 holes. Well worth playing.

Most challenging course so far

Great day. Course conditions excellent. True greens. Good fairway. Sandy bunkers(not fine). Rough not thick(not overseeded?).
Most interesting/challenging course so far this week.
Very friendly staff. Rangers seen 3-4 times asking how we were, and keeping pace up.
Terrific scenery and views.
Hot deal for $70 a great value for such a good course..
Many ‘mesa’ greens , but ball held.

Mountain

Rode the Blacks (6666/72.9/135) with Shane, Mike and Greg in 4H, 15M using Forelinx. The weather was sunny, clear, windy and around 90.

The tees were mostly lush and nice to play from. Only the Black tee on #7 needed work.

The fairways were lush and nice to play from.

The over seeded rough around the greens was very lush. The primary rough was mostly lush, good coverage and usually mowed down, you could easily find your ball. The native rough is an almost sure lost ball.

The sand traps were very well maintained with good quality sand. Other than large waste bunkers, most of the sand traps here are relatively small but there are a lot of them.

The greens putted medium fast and they were smooth/firm. Few ball marks due to the firmness.

The customer service was exceptional from everyone encountered. As usual for this course. Cart gal around numerous times and the Marshall was out patrolling. Nice GPS on the carts that come with complementary bottled water. All grass range included with your fee, Definitely Recommended.

Kind of ok

Have wanted to play here for some time as the reviews have always been great and the area is very scenic. Was quite underwhelmed with the layout and the off fairway grass was in rough shape. It may be the changing seasons for the grass, but visually the course looked pretty rough and unkept. Fairways and greens were good which is the most important, but overall kind of ok and that’s it.

Scenic but tough

I made the mistake of playing the white tees although silver tees were only a few hundred yards shorter. The greens are mostly elevated which adds yardage to the game. For some reason the ball was not flying like normal today when the wind was calm. The layout is really scenic. the last 5 holes have great views. I would play again, but I would move forward. No need to punish yourself playing the wrong tees.

Beautiful Course

First time playing the La Quinta mountain course. Pete Dye’s design makes it challenging if you are off the fairway but manageable if you stray from it unlike his stadium course at PGA West. Sneaky elevated greens so make sure you club up for your approach shots. The front nines beauty pales in comparison to the back nine. I paid full pull starting at 08:00 $200. I won’t play again for that price because the course condition isn’t $200 worthy, mind you mid March is prime time. Holes 15 and 16 made me temporarily forget that I paid $200. Such amazing holes. Be sure to hit from the championship tees on the par 3 16th. Iconic hole, 161 yards way downhill, take one club off! Will go back in shoulder season. Would be great deal for $120 or less.

Not able to get 18 in 4.5 hours meh..

Meh...huge booking/ events slowed everything up with waiting time on every tee box on every hole on front. This changed as that huge grouping left after nine, but then a new golfing 2some was slow and no one was marshaling them. Started at a tee time that should have allowed to finish before dark but ended up in the dark on hole 15 and was likely going to be 5 hour round. Missed the last 3 holes which looked really cool:(

Dissapointed

GPS on carts displayed incorrect flag placement on greens and incorrect yardage. Not enough value for the price. Played other golf courses for same or less price with entire golf course being lush, green and beautiful landscapes, not just fairways. Just didn’t appeal to me.

A Course Guide Would Help Big Time

We played a day after a rain, which meant “Cart Paths Only”, slowing play greatly. This was our 1st time on the course, and distance assessment was hard. We never kept the group behind us waiting, yet twice we were sternly upbraided by a ranger for slow play. All in all, a printed course guide would help guide play and help with distance assessments.

Nothing short of spectacular

Loved it in every way. The front nine ate us up but I attribute this to lack of golfing in the past few months. After consuming a cold La Quinta IPA served by the very friendly beverage cart operator, our game turned around on the back nine. The course is in excellent shape. Fairways are immaculate. Greens tough but fair. Scenery on the back nine is unique and stunning. Even a few bad shots didn’t matter when the views overwhelm you. Loved this course and will return. Well worth the money in my mind if you’re looking for a challenging but fair course. Drives need to be well placed to allow for that important second shot. GIRs are achievable but course management is critical. We were teamed with a single who played the course earlier in the week so he guided us through the course. Overall, a great day. Well done to all who make this course a gem in the desert.

Very nice track

The course was in great shape and is a challenging layout with a lot of different looks. Maintenance on the trimmed areas was great. My only complaint is that they trimmed down a lot of the dormant Bermuda way too short. With all the water they put down it turned into a muddy mess and is virtually impossible to chip out of. Other than that the tees, fairways, and greens were excellent and the traps were filled and well-raked. This one comes highly recommended.
