I am from San Diego and I pay golf all over. This is hard to beat. Especially when you start off birdie birdie par. The fairways are great and the Greens roll true. A can't miss.

We think the two courses here are fun and quite challenging for players of all levels. It is very scenic and excellently maintained for a public course. BUT, unless you are a resident of Palm Desert, you will have to pay top dollars to play...More

Golfed on the Firecliff course last weekend and got an awesome rate for an early morning tee time Iit gets a bit toasty in the desert in the summer). The driving range was closed for annual repairs, however, for the price you cannot complain. The...More

I played both courses over two consecutive days and liked them equally as well. The staff was very friendly from the pro shop to the cart attendants to the bartender. Both day's experiences were outstanding.

Make sure you have this on your list. Reasonable prices. Surprisingly a municipal course with a resort feel. Great conditions. Was in better shape than PGA West Stadium.
