Definitely Recommend!

Golfing in this part of the country this time of year, you have to be ready for courses preping for overseed. This course has handled it better than most. The rough was starting to be scalped down and you could tell that they were backing way of on the water, but like I said, this is to be expected this time of year. Coming from someone who has worked in the golf and baseball groundskeeping industries, this course did a great job still providing a great product while prepping for the upcoming overseed. The teeboxes and fairways were in great shape and the greens were some of the best I've putted on in a while. My only complaint would lack of access to food and beverages on the course. Ice water was provided on the course, but there was no beverage cart on the course on a warm saturday morning/afternoon. Other than that, we had a perfect saturday round of golf!

Great Course Tees for all levels!

Hills/Holt collaboration that offers good challenge to low Handicap Golfers and Great fun for High Handicappers. Just choose the right tees.

Some longer Par 4's from the Regular Tees so you will need a solid drive to score.

Fair peppering of Hazards to keep you interested.

Amazing sand in the Bunkers (best this trip so playable).

Summer in Palm Springs Area so greens a little slow (can't cut too tight with dry hot conditions)

For this time of year the course is in amazing condition.

Beautiful Resort golf layed out to keep the homes out of play.

Facilities are heritage elite top level.

People were top class.

Great time!

Got a "hot deal" at Heritage Palms. Course was in immaculate condition, considering it's the end of August. Although it was a little warm (104), it was dry and the breeze kept it pleasant. Staff very friendly; played in 2.5 hours. Highly recommend this course for a fun day with beautiful conditions

As good as it gets

What a fantastic experience. Great course, very good condition considering it was 108 degrees. Very friendly staff in pro shop and restaurant. We literally had the course to ourselves and played in an unhurried 2 hours 30 min. Heritage Palms will be my GO TO Palm Springs area course from now on. I hope I can get on in the winter.

Great Value

Took a friend to play the course for the first time. He loved it. Excellent course condition! This time of year in the desert can be problematic in terms of greens and fairways. No such problems at Heritage Palms. Superintendent deserves a raise!!

Keep up the good work. Definitely playing again in the coming weeks.

Great Find

Fairly wide open and greens relatively undefended but a great course to play. My wife is a 12 handicapper and she shot one of her lowest rounds ever but it still has its challenges in terms of water etc. Have to say that the condition of the course both fairways and greens was excellent. Possibly the best out of 8 or 9 courses we have played in the valley in the last 2 weeks!

Hidden Gem... play it if you get the chance

Being a local we always appreciate the summer when rates go down. Heritage is usually private but becomes semi private in the summer. Great course with wide open fairways but plenty of water to make it challenging. Pace of play is usually great but the day I played we were sandwiched between residents playing a tournament so play was a tad slower than usual but tolerable. Fairways are lush green in the middle of summer. Greens were aerated two weeks before and almost healed now. Play this if you can... keep eye on internet sites for deals.

Professionalism

The staff in the pro shop continually treat GolfNow members as second class citizens. The course is wide open and if you are 20 min early, they make you wait until your tee time even when no one is on the course. This is consistent in summer and fall. The older assistant pro has no people skills. You are never treated with a friendly smile. No such thing as accommodation.

Course is a great track.

Perfect Golf

I was lucky to choose this course as they played a shotgun start and I was paired with 3 members. They couldn't have been more friendly or helpful. I joined in their small group competition and was chauffeured around by Bill who was a truly great guy. The course was absolutely pristine and a joy to play. Whilst not overly difficult there was sufficient trouble to catch your attention. I will definitely play this course every time we come back as it was to me what golf is all about. Rate it highly.
