Good quick round

It's getting hot in the summer and it's starting to show. A couple of the greens were beat dead others were in perfect shape and overall course is just fine. I see a lot of comments mentioning that it's not easy for an executive course. Well by pro standards par 3s are typically the most difficult holes to birdie so there you go. I'm a newbie (high handicap) and I feel like this course takes me to the cleaners. It's great fun and really forces you to play your irons tight. I played it in just under 2 hours and that included a 20 minute break in the clubhouse to cool off.

Excellent short game practice course

This is a par three 18 hole golf course. However, there are a number of basically short par four type holes with water and sand trap hazards. This makes it much more challenging and is an excellent course to focus on and improve your short game. The course itself is beautifully maintained and very scenic. The greens are a little on the dry side with more ball roll than one might otherwise anticipate. Overall a most pleasant and different golf experience.

Perfect ! Start to finish.

The staff did an excellent job making us feel welcome and getting us ready for our round
The course is in wonderful condition. The greens were very receptive and played at about a 12. The bunkers all had fresh sand and were actually fun to play out of.
Aside from the golf,, the desert flowers and cactus are blooming magnificent this year due to spring rains. Every hole looked fabulous.
This is our favorite par 3 course in the desert. It has the feel of a well run country club. Highly recommend it!

One of nicest courses ever played

I have played a lot of courses and this rivals even the best 18 hole courses I’ve played. By far the best par 3 course. Greens are challenging and fast but not too fast. Fairways and rough are impeccable. White sand bunkers like butter to get out of. Island green and water on some but not too many holes. All types of play here. More importantly the staff is great. Mike the starter is always friendly and everyone treats you like a local. I played 3 times in Feb and just played and everyone remembered asked where I’ve been. I live in Hunt.Bch. And have a vacation home in Indio. I always make it a priority to play at least one round at SH North. You won’t regret it.

Beautiful course

The day we played the greens had just been sanded and was not happy that all of them were a mess. All the players we meet were a delight, and not snobby as some of the senior courses in the area

Thought I had bought onto a full length course. Turns out it was a par 3 course.

Must play

This course definitely has the wow factor. The greens were mint, nice and firm and a stimp of around 12. The only thing I didn't like was the fact that they moved all the tees up to the front of the tee boxes. I'm a low handicap and I would prefer to play the whole course rather than half of it.

Short Par 3 Course

Course was beautiful, absolutely stunning in beauty and condition, and the holes were reasonably challenging. for par 3s. Unfortunately when I booked the tee time I didn't realize it was all par 3s. While there was probably something in the course description indicating that to be the case, the actual reservation said nothing about it. Furthermore, the course did not have a driving range and, while I asked the pro shop if there was a driving range and told "no", I learned later there was a driving range at their course across the street which I could have used to warm up.

Great Short Game Practice

Shadow Hills North is a lot of fun to play. Although it is a par 3 course it will give you plenty of challenge. This is our 7th time playing this course, and it never disappoints. The course has always been in great shape every time we have played it. We would highly recommend it to anyone who wants to have fun playing golf.
