Borrego RESORT GC

Great course with beautiful views of the surrounding hills.

The original 27 hole layout is now reduced to 18 holes - so more resources are available to keep the 18 hole course in pristine condition.

We enjoy playing every time - a great place to spend a long weekend.

Amazing deal!

We played at noon and got the $39 rate. Not many golfers on the course at noon so we moved at our own pace. Never waited. Finished in under 3 hours without hurrying.

Condition is remarkable. Fairways lush and greens true.

This is an outstanding golf experience!

Good Fun

Played 36 the other day. This is a nice layout. These people know to take care of there course. Greens were superb, the bunkers have plenty of sand, fairways were fine, and even the rough was well kept . Challenging enough even for the claimed single digit handicapper IMO. Despite105 deg forecast, it didn't feel that hot. Staff was super friendly/accommodating. Great place to get away for the day (drive from San Diego was easy and scenic) or a couple days. There open every day in June and from Thurs - Sund thru August. We appreciate you stating open for the summer. Great golf for the price.

Great out of the way spot in the desert

My wife and I spend a few days in Borrego Springs in late April after the majority of the tourists and snowbirds go home. We played three days in the late morning/early afternoon and nearly had the course to ourselves. There are a variety of tees for varying abilities. Course is well-bunkered but not ridiculous. Course conditions were superb. Practice area includes a driving range, 2 putting greens and a nice short game area. We loved it!

First time at Borrego Springs Resort

Even though the wind was blowing between 15/20 mph the course conditions and play-ability of the course made it fun and fare. We played the white tees (men's forward), approximately 5,600 yards, if you want more of a challenge you can go all the way back to 7,000 yards.

The greens were perfect, soft enough to allow an approach shot to bite yet fast enough to get your attention when putting.

Some of the par 4's and 5's required a blind tee shot but other than that the course layout is pretty much right in front of you.

Can't wait to get back to the Borrego Springs Resort, highly recommend it.

Love this course!

We were supplied with a cart and cooler containing ice and bottled water. Free range balls are offered which was convenient as we only wanted to hit 10 or 12 balls each anyway. Fine putting and chipping greens for practice. On the course the rough and fairways were appropriately trimmed. Large landing areas for the average golfer's tee shots. Fairway bunkers galore to capture the long hitter's balls and everyone's truly errant shots. Putts roll true on excellent greens. We look forward to returning
