course in general

This was by far the best course I have played in a long time. course was immaculate, overall scenery is magnificent. We got a great deal because of the covid 19 scare. but were not in any direct contact with anyone. I would give it 10 stars if I could

Doing Things Right

Off course amenities not rated due to proper Virus closures. Beautiful and challenging course. Staff doing the right things to preserve separation of players and avoidance of ‘touched’ surfaces.

Painfully Slow

Nice course played by all levels of golfers including those who are in over their heads the result of which is very slow play for everyone, waiting on every hole isn't much fun

good day for golf

I've played the Palms course at the Marriott a number of times and it's always been enjoyable. I usually play early in the morning and the pace of play has always been good. Today my threesome was able to get around in under 4 hours despite following a 4-some that held us up a little. The course was in very good shape and offers a fair challenge playing from the combo tees for the 10-11 handicapper. The price is not cheap but on par for similar courses in this area. I definitely would recommend the course to those looking for a good course to play.

Marriott Desert Springs Palm Course

I have played at this facility several times. There are 2 courses, the Palms and The Valley, today. I played the Palm course. Practice facilities are good, access to Fresh water throughout the property and caters are in new condition. Fairways good condition, greens poor to fair condition. ,Strayed the round on time, however place of play was very slow, at times 3 groups on a tee at one time. There are no marshals so we mentioned this slow play to the starter at the turn. He stated that it is a weekend and a resort course, this should slow play should be expected. Lesson to consider, take this under construction before booking a resort style course on weekends especially this facility.
