Hertiage Palms

Rode the Golds (6698/72.1/128) in 3.5H super twilight for $25 which included range balls on the all grass range. Clear, breezy and around 105 was why I practically had the course to myself. Heritage Palms is a semi-private course that is surrounded by nice homes and condos in a gated community. Arthur Hills design that opened in 1996, I like the layout. Mostly open with only a few tight shots with several lakes that come prominently in play on a few holes. Enough sand, trees and native areas to get your attention without beating you up with them. From tee to green, the playing conditions were near immaculate. However, the greens did not match the rest of the course. The tees were immaculate, level and lush with hardly a divot anywhere. Same for the fairways and rough. Both were thick and lush with few divots and great coverage throughout. The traps were nicely maintained. Fine white sand that was thick around the greens. The fairway traps were a little more firm, and I was in one waste bunker that was very firm. The greens were disappointing compared to the rest of the course. Firm, a little bumpy and medium speed. Many of the greens had obviously been at least partially aerated within the last 3-4 weeks. They looked like they were still 7-10 days from being in top shape again. The customer service was a plus. Beautiful, massive clubhouse. Nice practice range that included a chipping area over by the tennis courts. The course would not be very walkable because of the heat and the fact that numerous tees are a long way from the last green. Middle tier course for the greater Palms Spring area, but with that said... this is a nice layout that would be good for players of all skill levels and is in very good condition. Recommended.

Interesting desert layout.

I was paired with a couple of homeowners and another single. The locals were generous with their course knowledge and helped quite a bit. There are some blind shots and a verbal cue here and there goes a long way. Course is in fantastic shape. Greens were fast. They posted a green speed of 11 but I think that it was closer to 12 or 13. On about 12 or 13 the winds kicked in and by the 15th it was blowing steady at 25 mph with gusts to 40+. Play early if you want to avoid playing in a gale. My only criticism was no beverage cart. There was some very sparsely stocked vending in the bathroom on the front 9 but it wasn't accepting any bills so I was SOL for the whole round. On a busy Saturday they certainly could have made some extra $$ with some on course refreshments. Even having some snacks and drinks in the clubhouse would have been sufficient. Overall it is a nice track. Open enough to keep balls in play yet tricky enough to keep you on your toes.

If there is a shot gun Golf now should post that

I love this course but it took almost 2.5 hours to play at 1:00 pm I quit after 10 holes waiting on every shot - poor advertising- if there is a shotgun - you should post it - if it wa so missed it - but will not spend 120 bucks to play a 5/12 hour round !

Great experience

Great staff starting with the lady at the gate, server, golf cart jockey, and of course Terry in the pro shop, who got our tee time arranged. The starter was very helpful and friendly. All this and we hadn’t even hit the first ball. Superior course fantastic shape, fast greens. Best course we have played in the valley. Well done

Heritage Palms

Excellent conditions. Greens ran fast and true. Course runs through houses but fairways are wide enough to not be a problem. Practice facilities and clubhouse are great. Would play here again.

Fast greens

This course is a gem. Although a condo course the fairways are wide. The course layout is interesting and the greens were the fastest I’ve played this year. Once you get used to them they are quite fair.

Play this course if you get a chance!
