Most people think of the super high-end golf courses when they think of Palm Desert, Palm Springs, La Quinta, Indian Wells, etc. You can pay to play at some of them, but a better value is the Palm Desert Country Club -- it's been here for 50 years, and it winds through the various home areas just north of Fred...

Overall all, this is a fairly nice course, and one there works its way through a neighborhood. The course is in fairly good shape (fairways and greens), although it appears that they have recently removed many of areas of grass so that it can revert to “desert landscape.” Free drops if you land in these areas under repair. Fairways are... More

Thank you for your review! We're glad you enjoyed golfing at Palm Desert Country Club. We just finished overseeding so the grass is in amazing shape! The golf course is opening to public this Friday, Oct 21. We hope to see you back soon to check out the changes. More

Very entertaining, lush, interesting and easy on the eyes! Loved the designers different take on all aspects of the game! Only 6600+ from "the tips" but great use of dog-legs and need for distance control =) HUGE OVERSIZED FAIRWAYS, lots of well placed water hazards! Then ended the day (#18 ) with one of the most interesting finishing holes EVER!!... More

Heard about this course while staying at the Desert Breezes resort nearby. Great public course - greens were perfect. Nice course for a duffer or a pro. Check online for special rates.

We stayed in a beautiful condo in palm desert country club. It was a gated community. The condo was very immaculately maintained. The service of the leasing company was very helpful. It was a higher priced rental. But worth every penny

While the Palm Desert Country Club golf course has a steady stream of players, Friday and Saturdays nights are the best. The Cactus Club is a beautiful, medium sized bar and dining room, with outdoor seating around multiple fire pits. Live music from 6:30 pm to 9:30 pm. Great food, service and prices.

We played twice with friends who are residents - generally a good course which had some very challenging holes. Unfortunately, the course is undergoing a major re-design to reduce watering requirements. This means occasionally having to worry about workers.
