Golf Advisor: Top 25 Short Courses in the U.S.
Great layout, no pressure, awesome conditions
We were met with very helpful and considerate staff. Pair up if we wanted or just the 2 of us, our choice. We paired up with 1 (also Canadian) women who owns one of the villas and a gentlemen from Oregon looking to buy. Had a visit after the round and only lost 1 ball in the numerous water areas. We're very happy with the course.
LOve this course!
This is a great short course! Immaculately kept and lots of fun to play. A real gem.
Great short course - irons only
This is a great course to practice iron shots. Most holes are about 100 yards, with 171 longest and 82 shortest.
A gentle warmup for our first time since coming to the area.
It's a short course, with 18 par threes. The longest hole is only 160 yds. On the positive side, it is very well maintained. The tees are sand and seeded, probably every day. The bunkers are excellent. It takes only a couple of hours to play and they have a $7 replay fee.
All in all, well worth a visit, especially on a sunny day.
Good to practice the short shots but the down side is there were several golfers who were not golfers so the round consisted of a lot of waiting.
It’s not really a mini Augusta, but it’s always in fantastic condition and extremely picturesque. Freddie Couples holds the course record! Definitely the nicest par 3 course in the Coachella Valley. It’s the nicest par 3 course I’ve ever played in my 30+ years of playing golf. Pace of play is hit or miss (that’s any golf course), but you can play in under 2 hours if it’s moving well, and no longer than 2 1/2 hours on a slow day. Staff is great!!
Great confidence-builder course for novices and those starting out. Friendly staff and well-maintained course.
Will for sure come back visiting the area
One of our Favourites
This is a good warmup course as it's par 3, lots of water and plentiful sand traps. Extremely friendly staff. Through in 2 1/2 hr. Greens were fast but apparently they get faster in January (we were there late Nov.) GolfNow said push carts rentable for $3 each but they were actually $4. They seemed new and have nice big wheels; very stable.
Great short game vourse
As a change from the par 72 ish courses it is a very good one. Not backed up as many short courses can be. If you are interesting in a few rounds to sharpen your short game it is great.
This was my first but will not be my last visit to this course. It was in excellent shape and is in a very scenic setting. For the money it is also one of the most affordable courses in the valley. The fact it is a par 3 does not detract from the challenge it offers. I found it very enjoyable to play and would highly recommend it to anyone.
Great chip and putt!
Very well manicured par 3 course. Definitely be back
For such a short course, it did make me work for it.
Best filler round ever
In between full on long rounds wanted a shorter alternative. This place exceeded my expectations. It is very picturesque and well manicured. A full golf experience with challenging water traps and greens but done my round in just over two hours. Highly recommended
Abosolutely beautiful course
Probably the nicest par 3 course I have ever played. Grounds were in fantastic shape and really friendly staff and course workers. Will definitely golf there again.
