Great track

Very much enjoyed returning to Escena. It's a top-notch place, from start to finish. Course was in perfect condition, layout was challenging-- you must make your shots to play well here. Greens were fair, not extremely fast but rolled well. I think they could add GPS on the cart for the price paid, but that's just a suggestion. Warning: there are some holes on the back-9 that run right along the airport and you will hear planes taking off. My only complaint was that the restaurant was all booked up after my round and could not have a post-round lunch there. Oh well. The golf was great.

Always a great Escena Experience

Really good experience including a great breakfast and a wonderful round with a nice pair of Canadian ladies. Course conditions were very good. Starters instructions were strange with 90 degree rule from the rough (never heard of in the valley this time of year) and rakes left in the traps which nobody did. Small change for areal good experience.

Scenic Course with a good pace

Loved the course. Layout was nice and the greens ran pure. Only comment is some of the fairways and rough were a touch patchy.

Terrible staff. - nice layout

The marshalls ruined the round. We played quickly and we’re having fun but they wouldn’t leave you alone. Pushing you all the way, no time for even a bathroom break! Really disappointed because the course itself it an interesting layout and in great shape.

Great desert value

Course is in great shape as usual. Great Nicholas track made tricky by some difficult par 5s. The top 4 handicap holes are par 5s. This is one of the best values of the desert with a great course, excellent amenities, and friendly staff. If there was one thing I could criticize is the lack of a driving range. The only range is hitting into a net. There's plenty of short game practice available but you can't hit full shots into a range. If I could be so bold I'd like to suggest that they get a few of those Trackman devices.

Love Escena

One of my favorite golf courses. From when i first step on the property everyone goes that extra mile to make sure my Experience for the day is enjoyable. The guys at the pro shop. (Thomas and Gill) are fantastic. Dave our starter was very friendly and professional . The course layout is one I love to play over and over. The views are breathtaking.. Replay rates are very reasonable . The restaurant with its outdoor seating very relaxing. Good menu. With even better service. All in all I Love coming back to Escena and would definitely recommend when visiting the Palm Springs area.

Frost delay

2 hour frost delay this morning but the staff handled it really well. Fairways a little rough in places. Many bunkers lacking sand. Greens were very nice

Good condition and friendly staff

Good layout and good condition. Maybe a bit noisy because of the airport next to the course.
