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

Great course

This was in the top 3 courses I’ve ever played. Biggest bang for the buck and it was immaculate. 4 tee locations. Grounds crew must have been having a bad day, inconsiderate. If they are the ones responsible for this well kept golf course, then I forgive them. I will play here everyone I’m in the area. Bravo.

Unbelievable Course Conditions for September

If you've played desert golf in the summer or early Autumn, you know that it's quite likely that you'll have to deal with 'iffy' course conditions. Burnt out greens, bare fairways.

Not the case with Heritage Palms. The greens were true, the fairways lush and level. Really impressed that staff greeted our golfers in the parking lot as we were unloading our bags.

Simply put, a quality experience all around with a great Sunday buffet afterwards.

We had a group of 28. We'll be back. Often.

Never knew what i was missing!

I have lived in the desert for over 25 years and i think i can brag that i have played all but 1 or 2 of the super private country clubs out of the over 120 plus golf courses in the Coachella valley, yet I never played Heritage Palms until this past Saturday.- I had heard they had some of the fastest and well kept greens in the desert and that the course had always been listed among the top 5 courses as far as course maintenance - yet i never had the opportunity to play it. I am here to tell you that was an oversight you should not make. The course was in pristine condition, the staff was welcoming , the greens were as advertised and the combination of course architecture and rare elevation changes make this a must when you get to the desert. the price in the summer was amazing at 39.00 and aI liked it so much I booked it for our usual Sunday foursome the following Sunday.

Great course layout many tee boxes to choose from will challenge the low and high handicapper - pristine golf course conditions and perfect greens - now one of my favorites in the Desert !

Best $8 round of my life

Excellent course condition. Please take into account that it's been 110 degrees for most of the summer so far. That's not counting the 120+ degree days. Greens were in very good shape. Fairways were 90% green at least. Courses in our area have been working with mandated water restrictions all year. The Superintendent does a tremendous job.

The course is not going to beat you up. The pace of play is good. Playing Heritage Palms does require a player to think about where to hit the shot to give themselves the best chance for scoring. Mid to higher handicaps will probably enjoy the course more than solid single digits (who might find it a little easy).

Great Value

Played in the middle of the day on a Saturday. Basically had the course to myself. Staff was friendly and had a great mix of holes. Still pretty wide open despite some hazards, houses, etc so it was great opening round before playing tougher courses in the area.

Nice course

This was the first time I had played the course and all of the reviews I had read said it was enough of a challenge but fair, especially for intermediate golfers like me. That was exactly what I found and I will play again here for sure. My only criticism of the course is that the greens were not at their best after some maintenance but they were still pretty true and I have certainly played on a lot worse. I look forward to playing here when the greens are better.

Beautiful Course but greens still not recovered

Second time I've played Heritage Palms, and I would definitely play more times if GolfNow would give us this kind of rate ($22)! I find the staff here to be exemplary and eager to help whenever asked. The layout is very nice with some short par 4's that are not that easy, but interesting. My only complaint was that the greens after being punched (with large holes) over 2 weeks ago are still not recovered and they did not roll smoothly. The rest of the course was in great condition. Nice thick sand in the bunkers... something that is not a given in the desert! I would definitely play here again. C'mon GolfNow, give us these kind of rates in the winter too!

Heritage Palms is a great course for the intermediate golfer, challenging but not too hard. This course is also immaculately maintained. Favorite course in the valley.

Play Again

I would certainly play this course again.

A challenging test but not Ridiculously tough.

Course was in great shape although the greens had been

aireated.
