Exceptional in every way

Played on a Sunday morning with my wife and another couple. Course was in excellent shape, particularly the greens. We played in just over 4 hours. No waiting. I’ve played 5 rounds at various public courses in the area in the last 2 weeks and this was by far the best all around experience.

Pristine

I very seldom write reviews but feel inclined. Heritage Palms is the most perfectly manicured golf course I have ever played on. The conditions were pristine. There was not one brown spot or blade of grass out of place on the entire course. When they overseed for the winter they do everything including the rough. So no dormant brown Bermuda anywhere this time of year. The green rolled true and were not super fast or too slow. The fairways were like the plushest carpet in the fancy living room you were never allowed in. The rough was lush and bountiful but not overly penalizing. I cannot stress enough just how well taken care of this course is. It is a semi private course which only posts tee times to the public after their members have chosen. So I am not sure how easy it is to get a tee time normally. I got an online tee time for $85 which is a steal. They could have easily charged twice that amount. I have played most of the higher end public courses in the Coachella Valley and this place's course conditions beat them all.

The course is not difficult with large landing areas off the tee's and receptive greens. The bunkers were perfect with plenty of light fluffy sand. The greens rolled beautifully about 10-11 on stimp. Tee boxes were gorgeous. Pace of play is strongly enforced at 4:15. We had an 8:00 am shotgun start and finished a couple of minutes before noon. Didn't wait on a single shot and never had anyone catch up to us.

I highly recommend this course if it is available over any other course in the valley if you have never played it. It is in absolutely phenomenal condition. It's not super difficult so enjoy the true beauty of the course and go low. You will not be disappointed.

A great time was had by all

There was a shotgun start which was ok. I played with strangers but we enjoyed each others company and all played about the same. The course was in very good shape but the sandtraps could use more sand,They were somewhat shallow. This is one of my favorite courses and the staff is very friendly and helpful.

Great condition

One of the best semi private courses in the area.

Always perfectly maintained and attended to.

Marshaled for pace of play most of the time.

More challenging than it appears....but fair for good shots. Greens are excellent.....bring your putting skills with you. Nice layout, no two holes are the same.

Good value overall. 4 T Boxes and Combo play on card....good variety choices for your game.

Perfection plain and simple

Ily

Put pristine conditions together with a great course layout that can test but not overwhelm any handicap golfer combine that with a freindly caring staff - great membership and you have Heritage palms— I am 30 year desert resident and ha e been lucky enough to have played many of the fine courses in our Coachella Valley - I don’t why but I never had the opportunity to play Heritage palms until this past summer when the rate was very reasonable . The first time I played it I was hooked - I played it 4 straight weeks in a row - I played it for the first time in the “season” and even at the 85 dollar rate I consider it one of the best bargain in the desert - I have always been paired with great members who welcome you with open arms - play it and call in love with immaculate conditions-the Best greens in the valley and conditions that would rival Augusta -play it for sure!

Thanks to the Management and Staff @ HP

My wife and I are not members at Heritage Palms but about 6 times a year we try to get a tee time and play as guests. Each time we continue to be impressed with every aspect of the GC and the Club. Yesterday was no exception and the guest we brought with us felt the same way. Thank-you for making golf at your facilities such a wonderful experience!

Well done!

Great layout & practice facilities

Played within 1 week of opening after reseeding. The only complaint was needing to stay on the cart path, which was clear at booking and fully expected. Greens, fairways were in great shape. The sand (and there is ample) is also great. Driving range, putting and chipping areas are well maintained and the staff was very friendly. I will play this course again, hopefully not in a shotgun so I can get a better feel..

Great and fun course to play

This course has plenty of challenge but still won't punish you for the slightly bad shot. I like the layout and it's always in great condition. If you get the chance play here you won't be disappointed
