Not worth the money

The course is nothing to rave about and the staff was not friendly. No carts were available when we arrived. We were told they would bring us some right before our round started. They never did. We had to go into the cart garage to grab a cart. Made for a hurried start to the round. The view around the course is depressing.

A course that fits my eye

There is the adage “horses for courses” and PDCC just seems to be a course I do well on. I don’t think it’s a particularly easy track from the blue tees but I still seem to score well every time I play here. Its an interesting course winding through a Palm Desert neighborhood. Carts are a must since many routes from green to tee take you into local traffic on your golf cart. Fairways are generous and seem to play to my draw. Greens are not large but not too undulating. Reminds me of a Nicklaus course although his courses seem to favour the power fade. Always seems to be in good shape no matter the time of year. Not a lot of amenities like cart beverage service or water stations, but I don’t tend to miss that stuff.
Good value for the money. Reminds me a lot of Indian Canyons with wider fairways.

Good condition and fast pace of play

This is an old course, but the condition of fairway and green is very good. The pace was great and finish in within 4 hours. The course is a bit short, lots of bunkers with a small amount of water hazards. Relatively easy and enjoyable to play.

The course is in good shape and has some nice holes. The fairways are wide and the greens roll true. The course however is just average in terms of views and overall aesthetics. For the price there are other courses that would provide more value.

A good morning experience.

We enjoyed the wide fairways but we're challenged by the deviously placed sand traps. We will be back to tame them, too.

Windy weather
Used cart

Just an average course and day.

The tee boxes and greens were in great shape. Grass was short in many areas and ground was hard making it difficult to get under the ball cleanly. Greens were fast and hard for me to read, leading to lots of putts.
I think there are other courses in the valley for the same price that are more enjoyable to play.

Just ok is not good enough

Pace of play was extremely poor. We waited on 15-16 holes. A threesome in front of us held us up. No ranger was ever seen. Rough was not in good shape. Need directional signs to assist getting from green to next tee on at least 4 holes.

Pricey for the quality

First time at this course, and I was a little underwhelmed. The staff was great, for the most part, but the shape of the course was only average. Traps had very little loose sand in them , so they were tough to play out of at times. The greens were fine. For the $78 price we paid through Golfnow, I don’t know that I would play this course again- unfortunately, I feel there are better courses in the valley for this price. Just one man’s opinion.
