First timer

Such a great course! Teed off at 11:15am and literally saw one other group ahead of me once I got to the turn. The course was in great shape. The greens are so nice compared to the courses in San Diego that I’m used to. The starter Rick was super friendly and helped me with my clubs. I’ll be back again soon !

Not Best Option

There are so many excellent courses/golf experiences in the Palm Desert area but, unfortunately, Palm Desert Resort and CC is not one of them. The starter/cart person was more interested in chatting with fellow staff than improving the player experience (explaining pin placements, pairing twosomes to avoid slow play) and wore his mask below his nose. Course conditions were bad (no grass) in some places, but okay in others. Greens were very good. We were looking for a place to become members. This is not the place for us.

Not Worth $75 - This is a $50 Course Max

I wanted to like this course, but conditions are still sub-par. Tees were a mess - uneven with patchy grass. The fairways were a mix of grass, weeds, dirt, and some nice areas. The sand traps were deceptively poor. It looked like there was loose sand, but it was wet and hard just 1 inch below the surface (or less). It was hard to get your club under the ball to hit a "normal" sand shot. Only "chunk and run shots' worked out of the sand. It looks like they are making upgrades to the course. Maybe in a year or two it will be worth what they are charging - but not now. One more annoyance... There was a full 20+ minute wait to tee off on the second nine. This pushed the total time for the round to 4 hours and 45 minutes. Kind of slow.

Early in the season (NOV 12, 2020)

Driving range is closed for renovations and water features on back nine are under major renovation but soon to be completed. I loved the flag sticks with ball lifting lever!!! Course just coming up for the season but should be in great shape soon. Very friendly staff.

Good value

Somewhat challenging off the back tees. Greens starting to quicken up and rolling smoothly. Bunkers need some TLC, but this is a result of Covid rules. HOA investing in restoring the course to former glory. Am hopeful for the future and will be back. 18th presents an unfair challenge for the ladies.

Rounding into excellent shape

The course is obviously being upgraded..
New sand in the bunkers, new greenskeeping equipment.
Great job restoring the ponds.
Most fairways and rough fully grown in....and the greens were in great shape, true and quick.
The back nine is tighter and more challenging than the front.
All in all, a very enjoyable course, especially for couples.
Quite a hidden gem, though a bit pricy.

Perfect Day

My wife and I had a 11:44 tee time yesterday. From the bag drop off to loading up afterwards to drive home it couldn’t have been a better day.

The course layout was very nice. The fairways were green and just a little less than plush. The greens were in great shape if not perfect. They rolled true and held our shots. The rough was ok and not too thick, perhaps maube a little more watering would be welcomed.

Thankfully we had our phones so we could measure distances on 18 Birdies. Being first timers we only had one hole where we drove into the pond. Overall we had a great day.

Bathrooms were opened on the course and also available at the cafe at the 9th hole.

We will be back as the price was right, the pace of play was excellent, staff friendly, cart ran great, sun was shining, what else was there!
