Nice affordable course

This is a great full length (6000+ yards from the blues), recreational course. Play the blacks if you want more. The Tees, Fairways, rough and greens were all in pretty good shape, considering that it's in Palm Desert and hot as heck. I'd like to see them rake the weeds out of the traps and loosen them up. Beware that they don't have a snack/food bar/restaurant in the summer, at least they didn't today. So be sure to bring a small cooler with drinks.

Surprised this got 4 stars!

We enjoyed our round here but it is a very simple course, suited to the beginner or occasional golfer. The greens ran true and were in good condition but the general appearance of the course is unloved and uncared for.

If you want a cheap practice round then this may well suit

Early Tee Time

The course was in great shape. The greens were fast. My wife thought the course was a bit long but I liked the length. The fairways were wide and forgiving. An employee met us at the car with a golf cart, loaded our golf bags and gave us great info about the course and hole locations. We really appreciated all of his information. Everyone at the course was very friendly and helpful. A great atmosphere to start your day. Thank You

Decent Muni style course

Course has some interesting holes but mostly old school Muni style course. Greens were much slower on the front, guessing they hadn't cut them when I teed off. Course was in nice shape and a fair price at 45 in May. Biggest complaint is lack of a driving range.

Nice Morning

Great day at PDCC. Good course in pretty good shape. Had a wonderful round with locals Mary and Paul, who helped with shots and putting. Fairways and greens in great shape. Edges of course not so much but truly not in play. Staff was great and price was appropriate. Will be back and definitely recommend for those who enjoy a sub 4 hour round.
