Hidden Gem In Palm Desert
I can't say enough about this course and play it numerous times throughout the year. As usual I played 7 mornings in a row (7/1-7/7) at 6:30am and had a great time. In July expect the fairways to be punched but it definitely didn't affect any portion of the game and the greens were still rolling quick and true. Can't wait to get back down there in November and play it once the over-seeding is completed!
Fun course, easy in and out
Lots of challenging holes, good greens, good pace of play
Course was in great shape, fairways were free of leaves and pace of play was perfect
Good value, nice short course.
The only knock on this course - first hole you're paralling the driving range, so range balls are bombarding you on you second shot...also, have to be really cautious of balls from other players on parallel holes. Course conditions were fine, the greens were no worse than most public courses...for the money, this was an excellent course....
Course in very good shape, friendly staff, quick play. Great $$ value! Some parallel fairways so better hit it straight!
Fun but challenging historic course
Shadow Mountain is great. Built by Gene Sarazan you feel the history when on the property. A very walkable course but with a cart you could finish in 3 hours or less. It may be a short course but it is certainly challenging. The greens have undulation and roll well.
Great little course
It’s a short course but historic & really nice. It was in great condition & the view is amazing.
Solid golf venue
This is a solid pick for a round of golf amongst renowned golf venues in Palm Desert.
Looking for a maximum 4 hour round? This Gene Sarazen design will deliver.
Great play for value
Length of course has nothing to do with difficulty. The course is challenging.....if you believe in course management then this is the course. It is great for fine tuning your mid to short game.
Really good place to play!
You think of the Month of May as hot in Palm Springs, well maybe a bit, but some great golf was had at this course. Pace of play good, course NOT crowded, staff friendly. Of course, this time of year the pro shop was a bit thin, but...still a good value and a great challenge for a narrow shorter course!
Nice little short course
We only played front nine but very good condition and very friendly staff, would play again next time in town
good value for the money
Pleasant course environment with moderate difficulty. Very helpful staff. Course well maintained although the greens are somewhat dry and fast moving. Definitely a good value for the money

Wonderful as always
We are in our 70's, and the course is a perfect challenge. There are hazards, narrow fairways, challenging greens. I'm delighted if I can score under 50 on nine holes. Course is excellent shape, and the pace of play was very comfortable. We'll play again this season.
Hello. Thank you for your review! We will pass along your positive experience to our team. We look forward to seeing you again soon at Shadow Mountain Golf Club!
Another great round at SMGC
We know the course, but it still requires serious attention. The fairways and greens are in excellent condition, and now that we are in shoulder season, the pace of play is excellent.
Perfect Challenge for my Ability
Great course -narrow enough to challenge my shots, not too long, tough greens, but they were in great shape. I'm a senior, and can't drive much over 200 yds. This course is not too long - can sometimes get on the green in 3. Break a hundred about 1/2 the time. I love the course!
Loved The Experience- Only 3 Hours to Play
I can only imagine that Frank, Bing, Bob (Hope), Jackie (Gleason), Jimmy (Demaret), Gene (Sarazan), etc. were standing/playing in the same places that I was yesterday, only they were here in the 50's, 60's and so on. This is a great course that is surprisingly challenging, due, in part, to its tightness. Greens are very good and bunkers are in good shape. Fairways and tee zones are excellent. Course very conveniently located near the heart of Palm Desert. I only wish that the tees were placed at or near the measurement monuments, not 5 20 yards ahead of where they are meant to be. This practice skews the USGA handicapping process because it makes the course much shorter than the designated yardage. This is a bad policy that too many courses practice and it should be challenged and corrected at SM and universally.
Very short course with offsetting challenge in small greens, bunker-protected. Sand in traps was unusual nd very heavy due to mix used. Pace of play was far too slow for the length of the course. Left after hole 15 with three groups at a very short par .
