This course is off the beaten track located in Desert Hot Springs, north of I-10. The wind can blow up here, go in the morning and you should be okay. The course is a Pete Dye design and surprisingly well maintained. Interesting holes with some...More

The Desert Dunes course is long challenging and cheap. Decently maintained. The problem is the wind. DHS is a windy patch of desert serving as a turnaround point for a much of the air that comes rushing through the Morongo pass. If you can golf...More

This is an average course. It not very challenging, but it's in pretty good shape. There are windmills all around the area, and now I know why... It was SO windy, it was hard to enjoy the day. I would suggest you keep that on...More

This is one of the few reasonable golf courses in the Valley, and there are reasons for that. 1. There are few amenities at the Site, restrooms, pro shop and carts are below expectations for this part of the Country but not poor. 2. The...More

Played this course 20 years ago when had a real buzz. Now it's a dull and run down location. The course itself is in fine condition, but the overall feel is a golf club with problems. No one to meet us at the bag drop,...More
