  • Two great courses. Difficult par 3’s and risk / reward par 5’s. Beautiful scenery, landscape and wildlife. I highly suggest this course if you’re visiting the area. If you’re a local, you already know how wonderful it is.
  • This course is unbelievably maintained. An average golfer will loose a few strokes based on how true the greens are. They roll exactly as you think they will no bumps or divots in the greens. The fairways are perfectly maintained. They take great pride in the course and it shows. $75.00 was the green fee that day. I would pay that any day compared to $50.00 courses I’ve played in the past. The beauty of the mountains in the background are unmatched. Greens 9/10 , fairways 8/10, bunkers 10/10, views 12/10
  • Both the courses here are absolutely beautiful, and well groomed and very challenging. You can play here for an amazingly low amount of money, which is one of the great bargain courses in the Palm Desert Area. The Firecliff course poses a huge challenge in the greens. They are really fast and will punish you if you’re not careful. The course is said to be the harder of the two, but I think this one is the easier of the two, as the Mountain View course has a lot more water. And I believe that the greens there are way more punishing, as I had more 3 putts than 2 putts.
  • really nice lay out.. greens right now not rolling the best.. very slow
  • Desert Willow was in incredible shape when we golfed it in early April. The course is challenging becuase of the water and sand traps, but forgiving with shorter rough that is playable. The greens were consistent from 1st to 18 which is always great. This is a great example of getting for what you pay for.
