Reviewed 11 December 2012

This course is well worth playing! Gorgeous views. Playable but challenging. All of the PGA West courses are outstanding and this one is no exception!

“outstanding staff, great course”
Reviewed 9 November 2012

My first time and needed to play in the afternoon. The reservationist was very helpful in advising which of the La Quinta courses to play. The Nicklaus course is in the middle of difficulty.

The starters greeted me by name and did an absolutley fantastic job of providing advice on the course and the best way to have fun. One of the superintendents stopped by on the second hole to chat and was very csutomer oriented.

I found the course very cahllengin and spent plenty of time in the sand. Very well maintained and would play there again.

“One of the best”
Reviewed 7 November 2012

This course is a great course to play and is more forgiving than other PGA courses. You will enjoy it. Get there early during peak season.

“A must for every golfer to play”
Reviewed 27 September 2012

The rough is rather deep so stay out of it. But a beautifully maintained golf course and one of our favourites in the area.

“Thank you Jack!!”
Reviewed 17 September 2012

This course is similar to the Stadium course in that the rough is very high & you better hit the fairways or you will find yourself on some kind of funky uphill or downhill lie.....playing for bogey. The greens are not quite as fast as the Stadium course but still a fantastic course.
