Palm Desert Country Club
Palm Desert Country Club is a non-gated, semi-private home community with a golf course spread out between its clustered streets. The course features 18 holes of Billy Bell-designed golf for recreational play. Nine holes are par 34. The extensive on site staff includes PGA certified Pro Rusty Uhl. In addition, players can dine in the clubhouse restaurant also located on California Drive. Seasonal rates: $55-$85, summer rates: $25-$40.
Dislikes: The shabby white barrier post at the streets where the new homes are going and the uggly orange fences. Likes: Course is very nice the view at the 9th and 18th hole is beautiful. Lots of bunkers to make use of sand irons.
When we booked the Champ we were looking for an easier course that my whole family could play as well as a budget friendly course to wrap up our golf trip. The clubhouse is very nice and the putting green is also very good, however there is no range available, and you have to hit off some mats if you want to warm up.
Once on the first tee we couldn't help but notice how poorly maintained the golf course was. The rough was often littered with brown dead patches of grass on all of the holes except 9 and 18 (which are very pretty). All of the sand traps were very poorly maintained with grass throughout. There was only one green in bad shape, and it wasn't even that bad.
In terms of playability, the front nine is very unforgiving with very small landing areas, and convex fairways that funnel most fairway drives to the rough. Aside from all of the blemishes I couldn't help but feel nostalgic to the professional golfing history that this course holds. I bet it was beautiful in its day though!
The staff are sooo friendly, which is probably the best part about this course. In the end, I would have spent 20 bucks more to play at a nicer, well maintained course.
We are homeowners at Palm Desert Country Club and have followed the purchase and fantastic renovation of the courses and clubhouse. As of mid December, the courses are a beautiful green, the clubhouse is just finishing another remodel that includes fountains and planters at the outdoor dining area, and a remodel of the interior.
As of 12-21-2011 the spoksman advised they are on track to open both courses and the clubhouse on New Year's Day. Enjoy!!

LOVEd this course! the rennovation has improved the course tremendously - and it is beautiful, with waterfalls.
Best value for your money over any other course in Palm Desert. WE cannot wait for their new clubhouse to open in October!
Just returned from a trip to Palm Desert I have played the course in the past and was never empressed. On my trip of ten days in the Valley I played it twice attempted two other days but was not able to get a tee time as it is booked. An absolute full circle change imaculate fairways and greens just incredable . played with two groups both Canadian Snow Birds both groups said best value in the Valley I agreed. The new owners seem very committed. Played several courses over the two weeks there enjoyed this course the most negatives food in the club house French Dip tasted like paper told the waitress who responded to me she informed the chef but did nothing to remedy the situation only ate half of sandwitch I ll give the kitchen another chance next time but they did not seem concerned great day
The new renovation is excellent. I've played here many times now and the course is in great condition. I wood definately recomend playing here. The new clubhouse is beautifull,(with plenty of large TVs for Monday Night Football). Great $5 all you can eat buffet on Monday nights.
The course is in excellent condition and challenging and the people are great.
Monday night football is a good time with great food and lots of nice people. Except for the annoying guy who channel surfed in the middle of the game, they've got our vote.
