If you are looking for a nice and slightly challenging Executive course, I recommend Date Palm CC. The course conditions were really good and the staff was very friendly. There are four par 4's and the rest are par 3's but with a fair amount of water to make some of the short par 3's pretty challenging. I played 18 holes in 2hrs and the price was good. One negative, I could see how this course could get backed up on busy days because of needing to wait on the par 3's. That's not an issue when you are playing in the summer :)

I learned to play golf on this course so the challenges are still there of hitting over the water on the 8th, the 12th and the 16th. But improvement on my game is gauged by my plan. I really love this executive course. Great value for the money, friendly staff and shade in the summer. Try it - you will like it! Trust me.

Hidden gem. Always in great shape and a real pleasure to play winter or summer. I always score well here, as it’s very basic and straightforward. Staff is friendly. It’s NOT a high-end place, pro shop, driving range and 19th hole are very basic. No drink carts or bag drop service, but I don’t care. Lots of trees (shade in summer) and in the early AM it’s still cool and the grass is still damp. One of the first courses I played here in the Coachella Valley and will always be a sentimental favorite. For the price, it’s a steal.

I learned to play golf on this course - four years ago and have been going back and going back. Everytime I play this course I seem improvements in my game - 8th hole challenging as I have to hit over water - they take great care of this course, staff is always helpful and maintain a professionalism with the players. You will not be disappointed - go for it!

Rode the Blues (3029/54.1/80) with Chris and Lisa in 3H on a GN Hot Deal, $26.49 including fees. The weather was clear, around 90 and breezy. First time playing this Ted Robinson Jr. Executive course that is around 50 years old. Straight forward, traditional desert layout that snakes through an upscale manufactured home community. About a half dozen lakes come prominently into play, four short par 4's and fourteen par 3's. I think I used a dozen different clubs, the layout is a good mixture of holes. The tees were mediocre, decent coverage and a few were crowned. You can tell most people use irons continually on most tees, lots of old divots. The fairways were mostly lush poa annua, nice to play from, mowed close. Same for the rough, which was maintained just a little higher than the fairways, good coverage and not penal to play from. The sand traps were nicely raked but were poor overall. All 3 sand shots I had there was no an adequate cushion before you hit hardpan underneath. The shape of the smallish Bermuda greens was a pleasant surprise. They held irons well, I was surprised how many irons I backed up on these greens and they putted true. However, you had to blast the ball... woefully slow. More like putting on the fringe on most courses. The customer service was great at check-in. No frills course, no driving range, very small putting green. Do not remember any water stations on the course, but they have complementary water available at the clubhouse. If you like Ted Robinson layouts and short courses, you would probably enjoy it. Overall, not bad for a short course, the layout was decent. However, could not recommend because of the woefully slow greens.

This is a very nice executive course. The course is kept in great shape. It's a challenge for the average golfer. The above average golfer will be challenged but you can tame it. I had fun playing it and you will as well!!
