Awesome Par 3 Course

Shadow Hills North is a challenging, fun, beautiful par 3 course. The greens are difficult but not unreasonable. The fairways are wide so no houses are a problem. Cart path only for carts was no problem. I’ve played this course many times and always enjoy it.

Good little course

I was suprised to find the course was a par 3 course. Having said that the staff were helpful, got me out a little early. Excellent condition, would recommend if one wanted to play a par 3 course. Good layout

A Very Special Secret Here in the Desert

I hate to spread the news....but there is an absolutely fantastic Par 3 Golf Course here in the Desert.....and....it's open to the public. Troon runs it and normally it's in impeccable condition. A Par three like none other....with plenty of trouble and water. It 's challenging and fun. Go play and have a ball!

PAR 3 COURSE YOU HAVE TO PLAY

Looking for a challenging short course. Well hitch up your pants and give this one a try. From the blue tees, this is no push over par 3 course. Back 9 gets long, with couple of holes over 200 yards. There is more than enough water and sand traps for everyone in your group to hit into. Bring a couple of sleeves of balls if you are less than an intermediate golfer. You will need them!

Only reason not a 5 on course conditions as greens were recently sanded. By the way, they are huge and if you don't get on the right side or level, 3 putts come a running.

Nice Course

Very enjoyable, first time playing this course. Had heard from other golfers that this was a well designed par 3 course. Conditions, staff, and weather was top notch. This is by far the finest par 3/executive course in the Coachella Valley

Fun Layout

Was looking for something fun but interesting for a final day of golf in the desert, and Shadow Hills North fit the bill nicely. The course is immaculately groomed and beautiful. Don’t let the fact that it is made up of 18 par 3 holes dissuade you from a round here - there’s lots of variety, and plenty of challenge between the bunkering and the water that comes into play often.. If I were going to be here longer, I’d go back and enjoy it again. It was a great way to wind down from a full week of golf.

Very Tough Par 3, But Worth It

We were bummed to learn that the course was a par 3 course when we drove 2.5 hours to get there. We were going to cancel and get a tee time some where else. But after talking to my group and the starter, he assured us that it’s a very tough par 3 and that we wouldn’t be disappointed. So we stayed and played. I will say that you definitely won’t regret it. The Holes were long and sand traps guarded the pins. They just opened the course back up from being punched two days ago so the greens had some sand and were extremely slow. However we had a great time. Each hole practically has water near or around it. Each hole is very pretty and nicely laid out. This course will definitely test your iron game which is a nice change of scenery. Will definitely be back in a few months. Thanks to Mike the starter for helping us with our decision to stay.

Awesome par 3 course...

Played the Club tees (54.1/84/3006) in 2.5H with 140ver. 95, calm and clear when we were finishing about 10:30.

This Schmidy/Curley design is an excellent par 3 course. Plenty of desert scape, huge sand traps & water hazards to keep things interesting. You have to also navigate the huge, undulating greens.

Picture an above average desert course, except instead of playing four or five par 3's, you are playing 18 of them to visualize this place. The par 3's range from 122 to 223 from the back tees and all are representative of what you may find on a regulation golf course. I used almost every iron in my bag on my tee shots today, ranging from 2I to UW. The 18 holes here average 167 yards per per 3, this is NOT a pitch and putt course.

The Bermuda tees were very near immaculate, few divots.

The Bermuda fairways and rough both were 80% lush with patches of hardpan.

The large bunkers look excellent aesthetically with beautiful, deep and plentiful silicone sand. Nicely manicured around the edges and freshly raked

The Bermuda greens and aprons are very nicely maintained. The greens are firm and putted medium speed, very typical of Bermuda green conditions for August.

Nice course, the customer service has been excellent every time I have played here. Definitely recommended.

Gem in the Desert

Second time I’ve played in the 3 weeks I’ve been in Coachella Valley. Awesome experience both times. Had the course to myself yesterday and only payed $17+, thru GolfNow. It’s worrh much more than that by far!!!

The fairways and greens are in super good condition and well manicured. It’s also challenging. You think pat 3 courses might be easy. Guess again. At least a half dozen holes are in the 200 yard range or over. Lots of hazards too.

I’d recommend this course to anyone who is looking for a good, challenging round of golf in a beautiful setting with all the amenities and a super good price.
