#15 on La Quinta's Mountain is laying along the base of the mountains - stay tight to the base and go for this par 5 in two. The green stays snug up against the base and will not be in full view.

Special course

Love this course. Beautiful back 9! Unfortunately the tee boxes are badly maintained, and the rough has not been over seeded for a few years. Hoping the new owners will get this course back to its glory!

The staff was very friendly. I golf all over the world. Probably the first time I had to pay 35 bucks to have my wife tagalong

Outstanding

I had bored a late time and was about to be a single behind a number of 4’s. The Starter suggested I play with a 3some on the back 9 and was welcomed. Had an enjoyable back and then played the front solo in an hour finishing in good light. Great course and the Starter helped to make it a great day☀️

Outstanding views

The course was a fantastic layout.
Unfortunately not a good time of year for grass off fairways(first cut-rough). Dormant Bermuda grass.

The fairways were rye grass. They were beautiful
However, fairways are mostly narrow

Greens were very firm and fast

Unwelcoming

Do not book a t time here if you are a single. They will you as if you are a bother. Making you feel completely unwelcome. Could not find the time using Golfnow and was angry I had it. At this price they should at least welcome you. Course is ok but only for large groups. Terrible management doesn’t not seem to care

Unique experience.

On this course, the mountains edge most of the fairways. On the 4th, you play around the mountain. Just a beautiful course set in the mountains. There's an eerie silence on 14 and 15 as you're surrounded by the mountains. The 16th hole is incredible, 160 yard par 3, the tee box is 200 feet above the green, and between the tee box and green is a portion of rocky mountainside. Enjoy it.

This one is a keeeper

This was a fun course to play and I would definitely return. The holes have great views and the fairways were in great condition. The greens were slow but should improve as you get farther along into the year.

Great golf in La Quinta!

The Mountain course is a delightful challenge. The only thing that was a negative was cart path only as they are still babying the overseed. But, the pace was great and we still finished in 4 hours. It is very fair and fun to play.

Overseeding Season

For $118 per person starting at 9:30 am we were able to play the Mountain Course which was being prepared for overseeding. The course conditions were fairly dry and the greens were brittle. The course is beautiful and layout is appealing. Somewhat difficult especially if you have never played here before. It was unfortunate we were not told of the unfavorable course conditions before booking within the 72 hour cancellation time period. I would recommend this course but only during proper "seasons".

Golfer Beware

Find out the over seed schedule before playing. The layout of the course is very good, however the greens were horrible.

Interesting back 9

I cannot fault anything about this course apart from the price. It is even more expensive than The Classic, which is a truly beautiful course.
We come every few years to play for a few weeks and this is one that we always play and enjoy - the change of holes through the back nine really makes you concentrate.
