Courses Like This Are Needed!

This is a great course for new golfers and kids. Heck, it has a couple of par 3s that are 200 yards, so it’s a challenge to single-digit handicappers, too! It’s a pretty well-maintained course and is definitely a value!

Long and Straight

I learned to play golf four years on this course. There are a few 4 pars and remainder 3 par. Some challenging (for me) water holes and bunkers. I gauge the progress in my game when playing here. Carts are in good shape, convenient pro shop and in season a restaurant for lunch. They do a great job in keeping the appearance of this golf in great shape! Excellent value.

Good course for seniors

Challenging short course with narrow fairways and small greens. As a senior I have lost a lot of distance so a short course meets my needs for both fun and challenge. In summer the course is good considering the heat, in winter it is beautiful with snow capped mountains over rich green fairways. Staff is friendly and helpful.

Nice Surprise!

A pleasant surprise! This executive course is an excellent place for my daughter to learn the game and have fun. I had a great time, too. Course is in beautiful shape and the greens putt very true.

Get your game on!

This gem of a course is the perfect layout to get your game together. Short, 54.1/80, but you can play from the blues, there are only a couple of par 4s on the front/back. One forced carry over water and a few dome shaped greens will keep you engaged.
Negative: The bunkers are not sand filled, more like cement. Too bad.

Challenging Water

Enjoy playing this course. It is a fun and challenging executive course with water on many of the par 3s. The fairways and greens are well taken care of and the trees add much needed shade on warm Palm Springs days. The course is good for beginners and seasoned golfers especially to work on the short game. We will return to this course in the future!

OVERBOOKED!

We have played this course for three years and have loved it. However, our experience today was a disappointment. We booked the hot deal as we always do. First problem: the course had no record of our booking. Second problem. We did not want to be paired up, and they told us we would have to wait a long time to tee off. We have booked the hot deal there for three years and have never had to pair up— especially at noon. Third problem: there were about 15 people in the clubhouse. The course was completely overbooked. We chose to eat the money and not play. Worst of all, the staff was NOT friendly and certainly were not experienced. Will not play there again for awhile.

Definitely one of the best short courses in the area. Seen only one bunker that was unplayable. Great 18 hole executive course. Great shape too. I'll be playing there again for sure!

Fun Short Course

Some longer par 3's, but all short par 4's. A good course to work on your short game. Sand was very good. Greens are smooth, a little slow today, but overall in good condition.

A nice surprise

;After having played several other executive courses in the Palm Springs region, and having no expectation that Date Palm would be any or much different, I was pleasantly surprised. Instead of hitting PWs and 8 irons into the majority of holes at the other courses, the longer 3's on this course had me pulling out longer irons and some fairway metals previously left in the bag. A good mix of short and longer par 3s along with 4 short par 4s.
