We play here every time we go to Palm Desert. It is a tough for a lady 19 handicap but still very enjoyable. Pricey but worth it.

These are two of the best golf courses you will find in the Palm Desert area. Excellent service at check in and everyone we encounter if friendly and very professional. Restaurant serves breakfast and lunch or late afternoon appetizers after golf. Excellent food and service.
