My husband and I played the course on a Wednesday morning. The pace was good and the staff were great. The greens were very challenging with almost every one of them sloping away. It's a pretty course as are many in the California desert. Our green fee was $85.00 each which included the cart and the practice range. On Thursday, we wanted to use the range and it was $30 for the two of us. I asked the staff at the pro shop about twilight rates and they told me it was $45.00 after 1:00 and to call if we wanted to book a tee time for Friday. So the next day, I called for a tee time and was quoted $79 for a 1:21 start. When I pointed out the discrepancy, they said that I was looking at a internet rate but they would give me a "deal" for $49.00. I said I would get back to them. Well, my husband's shoulder was acting up so he was just going to ride along and not play. I called back to book the 1:21 and they said they were going to charge $35.00 for the non-player. I booked it but then found other courses that charged much less for non-players. Within five minutes, I called to cancel and they wanted to charge my credit card for a same day cancellation but said they would let it go because I cancelled so quickly . I understand they need to make a buck but the huge differences in the price quotes were very suspicious and really bordered on gouging. If I hadn't inquired the previous day about green fees and had just arrived in the desert, I would have been charged $79.00. I don't want to bargain for my golf. For that reason, I won't be golfing La Quinta again.
