Fun layout, conditions meh.

Course is definitely a fun one. The greens were in good shape, especially for this time of the year, but the fairways could definitely use some work.

Nice track but pricier than most.

Nice layout. Pretty course. Very playable. Conditions green and some of best in area. Greens a little more beat up than you’d expect but there had been a lot of rain so maybe the miso stir caused it. Not exceptionally difficult but a fair test. Decent range and friendly staff. No complaints although at $171 it’s a little pricey

Very nice course tough greens

Really enjoyed the course layout and the conditions were very good. Found the greens tough to read and I dont believe I had a straight putt even once. Would definitely play again.

Good course

For the money, I've enjoyed many cheaper courses better. Lots of hotel around and distant views of mountains but not all that interesting at the course itself. In great condition and had to play strategically and lay up a lot as lots of sand traps to avoid.

19th hole awesome and food was fantastic and reasonably priced. Staff wonderful.

I would play again if I could get a lower rate.

Disappointing

Actually the course was interesting and challenging.
My complaint is with the pro shop who insisted on charging my friend for an extra cart fee for her special needs child who can’t be without her. No other course in the valley has charged her according to her. A little compassion and common sense would go a long ways.

Must play in Palm Springs area

Shadow Ridge manages to blend desert golf with the lush few of a parkland setting. The layout is beautiful and a bit challenging. It's not all about length and here are shorter par 4s that offer challenges around the green. Speaking of which, the greens were in excellent condition and running quick but were not stupid fast. This course joins Desert Willow and PGA West as one of my favorites in the area.

Great Track

Shadow Ridge has it all, great grasses, very interesting layout, fabulous clubhouse and great service. The breakfast sandwich was very good. Most undulating greens in the valley.

Challenging greens

Most greens have lots of undulations. Some fairways have bunkers placed to challenge you. The rough was a challenge in places. Great shape and fun to play. A very enjoyable round

Playing golf like it’s meant to be

We searched for a course to walk and GolfNow stated on their site that Shadow Ridge allowed walking. Staff at the course stated walking wasn’t allowed under any circumstance. Sadly this the norm....not appreciating that walking doesn’t slow down the masses that courses are trying to pack on the course.
