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.
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.
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 .

Cozy Club Atmosphere/Excellent Value
Very conveniently located and 3-3.25 hour pace. Tees, bunkers and greens in very good shape. Staff is very professional. Tight but fair layout. Landing/cart area at the clubhouse could use some shade. Clubhouse has a nice bar and the patio area which is pleasant but with no view. Why not somehow elevate it to create a view? Discovered that the clubhouse actually has a billiard table which is slightly less than regulation in size but in new condition. Quality pool sticks provided. No charge to play. Good spot for post-golf drinks and honing your pool game.
Overall, this is a hidden and convenient gem of relatively medium length par 70 course, one which is very challenging.
Hi! Thank you for your review. We will pass along your positive experience to our team to let them know their work isn't going unnoticed! We look forward to seeing you again soon here at Shadow Mountain Golf Club!
Finished the round in under 3 hours. Not a resort course but great for the casual golfer. Great staff.
Hi. Thank you so much for taking the time to review us! We are glad you had a great time and we hope to see you again soon! Thanks for choosing Shadow Mountain Golf Club.
Short course but very narrow. So all in all it’s a good level of difficulty.
Hi Jimmy. We appreciate you taking the time to review the course and rate us. Thank you for the 4 stars! We aim for a 5-star experience, so we always welcome feedback for improvement. Thank you for playing Shadow Mountain Golf Club!
Not impressed with this course for the money. Fairways in marginal shape. Greens so so. Layout a bit repetitive. Staff non existent or not friendly. No real pro shop. Would not recommend.
Hello, Thank you so much for leaving us with your feedback. We value our customer experience, so your review is important to us. We will make note and we hope to see you back!
Management Has Dedication, Imagination and Perseverance. Fun Course!
Management under the GM, Jenn, has done an exceptional job during the last 6-12 months. Restrooms immaculate, pro shop organized, very professional staff, Lucene/Jenn/Head Pro all wonderful, and the course is in exceptional shape and very conveniently located just a few blocks south of El Paseo. What more could one wish for from this nostalgic Gene Sarazen designed course, Circa 1960's? This course is definitely challenging and will test all aspects of your game.
NO, I AM NOT A STOCKHOLDER OR EMPLOYEE AT THIS CLUB (HA) BUT I DO APPRECIATE THE FINE WORK BEING DONE AT SHADOW MOUNTAIN BY A DEDICATED GROUP OF MANAGEMENT AND WORKING STAFF MEMBERS.
Hello. Thank you for taking the time to give us a 5-star rating! Our main goal is to continually provide excellence for our golfers, in all aspects of the club. We'd love to see you again very soon!
A hidden gem
Classic golf course! Not a long course but tight with small greens and bunkers to challenge even the best players. Rough is thick enough to penalize and greens roll true with some subtle breaks.
Due to shorter length, pace of play is excellent at 31/2 hours. The mid-century modern homes are also fun to see as you experience the course. Definitely worth playing!
Great Location, Well Managed and Gene Sarazan Design
This 1950's era course is very well located, fun, challenging and in good condition. The management here is VERY friendly and they (Jen) are operating the course and overall facilities very very well. The greens and fairways are in great condition.
