The golf course was in pretty good condition. Played long which I loved. It would have gotten a 4.5 out of 5 but the round took over 5 hours to play. We had to wait more than 5-10 mins on every hole. Some holes we were backed up w 4 groups. We called the pro shop on more than one... More

This course is top notch and a good deal, especially during the summer months. With wide open fairways, beautiful views of the mountains to the west and a really good restaurant you can't go wrong at Escena. We had a small tournament there this month and they did a great job.

Great rate for the 1st tee time of the day, just had to wait for it to get light enough. Great layout and conditions, greens were a little bumpy and slow but understandable due to the extreme HOT conditions. Played as 2-some in just under 3 hours. Definitely will play this course again! Great course and bargain during the summer... More

This is my favorite course besides Indian canyon. Condition of the course is fabulous, very outgoing staff with excellent service. Course is challenging especially when on windy days

We golfed four times in the Palm Springs area and Escena was our favourite. Very friendly staff who gave clear instructions on the course before we went out. The course itself is forgiving and while it challenged my husband who is a good golfer, I as a novice golfer could still keep up. The pro shop is professional and the... More

The course was in great shape. The fairways were green and the greens were fast and true. The 4-some ahead of us were gambling so play was slow. The views are special and the airplane noise was not an issue with us. The cart came with an ice box on the cart and there was lots of water along the... More

Fantastic course...splurge and enjoy it...price is of course not cheap but at least once you have to experience the majestic mountains. Watching planes land and take off also a great bonus.
