What a great experience playing this course! Staff was great course was well maintained! Greens were immaculate! Ready to play there again!
A very enjoyable golf course for players of all abilities!
Teed off just before 1:00PM and didn’t expect to get 18 holes in before dark but to our surprise and delight our foursome played in under 4 hours. . The course is in excellent condition....greens, tees and fairways which was also a surprise given the amount of play. It had rained in the morning and was cart path only when we started but that restriction was lifted after a few holes....another surprise which was great. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The course Is not overly difficult but challenging enough for a good player with some interesting holes and very playable for the average golfer. A good layout. Enjoyable day!
This course was heavily used and equally maintained! Just as a successful course should be. Excellent layout! We will certainly look forward to playing here again! Thank you!!!
This course has a excellent layout, difficult but not over the top. Wide and long enough to use the driver on most holes. Some very nice par 3’s and some lengthily par 4’s. Firecliff is one of my favorites in the valley.
Outstanding Day on the Course
This is by far one of the best courses I have ever played. Practicing at the range every day, and played on New Years Day. What a treat! Staff are excellent, and the course was in excellent condition. We were the first group out, but had an hour frost delay. Wouldn't you know it, the coldest day of the year in Palm Desert. Other than that, it was as good as it gets!
First Time on Course
Excellent round of golf, especially for this "novice." Had a brand new set of clubs, played today for the first time on this course and with these clubs. Served me very well! Excellent job, staff!
Played with my two grandsons and we had a great time. Only problem was duo to the twosome ahead of us , they were very slow due to playing more than one ball each and we were in a rush to beat sun set. We just managed the last two holes but was not comfortable in the darkness. Was not managements fault but rudeness on the part of the group ahead of us.
Absolutely stunning layout.
Top condition on the fairways and greens.
One of the best Inhave played over 25 years of playing golf.
I played mountain view last time and it was heavenly as well
Layout is very good and challenging. Greens rolled good. Each green had plenty of breaks. Disappointing that the bunkers were not raked and a couple of tee boxes little ragged. Other than that recommend it.
When you pay more than $100 you expect a course in very good shape !
I’ve been playing this course every year I come to Palm Spring and every year the 2 courses are less and less taking care of. They are sitting on their reputation...
Certainly does not rate a "1" A little disappointing perhaps, but I played on 1/1, and found the course to be absolutely beautiful! First time, and I was impressed.
No fun to play a hard course and wait 20 minutes on every shot. If you like playing a 6 hour round behind a bunch of beginners, then this is your course. Left after 5 holes. Waste of time and money.
Desert Willow - As Nice as the cool side of the Pillow
Upon arrival, early morning and in the dark, my clubs were put on a cart and waiting for me after I checked in. And speaking of checking in, Brett in the pro shop is super friendly and helpful. I checked in outside and they gave me a PAGER!? Yes, they give you a pager when you go to the range, and it buzzes and tells you when to report to the first tee! Range was perfect, and it is turf not mats. Course was just opened after the overseed and it was perfect. not a bad lie all day, and greens were pure, thought a little slow. fun day, definitely one of the top courses in the area, and the views are stunning. Not as majestic as Bighorn, but you will be pleased you came here to play.
First day open after overseeding. Course was in pristine condition, although the greens were still a bit slow. Pace was great - finished in just over 4 hours. Highly recommended.
Amazing Course Terrible Staff
The course itself is fantastic and I would highly recommend it
Every hole is a challenge and no 2 holes alike
By far the best conditions so far this golf trip Tee to Green in great shape and it's mid September
The Lavender Tees at 6179 yards are the longest 6179 course you'll ever play Fairways are uphill and unless you have a long carry little to no roll
The staff from arrival didn't even care that I was there, made no effort to provide guidance
Had to just wander down to the tee on my own so started somewhat ticked off. After the round wow what an inconvenience I was
Was able to catch up to a single George from LV playing in the Golf Channel Am tournament
Great guy made the round more enjoyable
Great course and facility
I played the Mountain View course earlier in the week and loved it. The Firecliff course was equally as good. Great conditions. Excellent challenge. I would recommend both Desert Willow courses.
