A must play gold course, and likewise sister course, Gary Player, just minutes away. Staff is exceptional, led by Brody, Paul, Anthony and Brittany. Support staff equal as well, Mike, John, John and Blair as player assistants on course, and Marie and Marnie on food cart sensational.

Our experience at this tricky course was made worse by the "cart path only" requirement due to overseeing. Often the cart had to be left far from the ball, rendering the GPS maps all-but-useless. The course was in nice shape. I felt a little over supervised while on the course, as the ranger and other personnel seemed to be omnipresent... More

This is one of the BEST maintained golf courses I've ever been on. The grass was cut perfectly at every level and free of weeds and disease. The course was average challenge which is fine for me. I was more pleased to enjoy the idyllic scenery, wildlife and turf.

You won't experience better Coachella Valley Golf than here at the Mission Hills Pete Dye course. The course is very well taken care of and the greens are beatifully cared for! If you hit it straight and hit fairways you will score well and if you don't it will be a fun but long day on the links!

Spent four days here for vacation, even though we aren't golfers. Staff are very friendly, surroundings well cared for, rooms above adequate, though could use a little spruce up. Only criticism is lack of elevator; would have been helpful.

Well kept course that forces player to,think about shots and not just grip'n rip. Not much elevation change, but lots of hazard to keep the player honest.

He asked what kinda BD of room that we would like. I told him we were meeting friends so he looked up their name and... More

This is one of the most beautiful resorts in the desert area. Some of the workers may need a little more training in customer service, however. Check-in was very difficult, even though the reservation was made weeks in advance. We arrived a little early. Check in time is 3 PM, but we couldn't get in till about 4:30 PM. I... More

A typical Pete Dye course lots of tricks of the eye to get you to question your shot. All the employees are fantastic, super friendly and helpful. We enjoy this course a lot. You will like the challenge. Be prepared for hole 14 2 lakes to get to the green.
