Played Escena as a foursome, 2 low & 2 mid handicaps, all gals. Played the round in 4 hours 20 minutes. We were harassed by a rude marshal after the turn, falsely accusing us of slow play. We followed a twosome & rarely saw the threesome behind us. Three of us live in the desert & belong to private clubs.... More

We played the golf course about five times and ate at the course. The golf course was an excellent layout and well maintained. The lunch was very good and the waiters were very attentive.

Never tried the restaurant on the fact the girl inside was either having a bad day or does not like the fact of just asking a question, had some pretty bad attitude so we opted to eat elsewhere buuuut the course! Very nice and worth the $$, no driving range which is also sort of a negative but they got... More

This is a review of my family PHOTO SHOOT on December 23, 2016. Beautiful golf course and well-manicured greens. Our photos came out beautiful and all shots were stunning! The only downfall that day was the damp weather, the mountains were not visible due to fog and it was cloudy. But none the less, the location was gorgeous! We shot... More

First off the clubhouse is very cool! Restaurant rocks! Course was very nice and easy at times and tough on other homes. If you get a chance to play do so. Prices for rounds were cheaper then other courses so it's a great calue.

Good layout but can be windy. Greens were good.....play was a little slow as it was a windy day. You can tell the holes are rated with a northerly wind in mind. There's plenty of room to keep ball in play & the waste areas aren't terribly penal on most holes. Green complexes vary from average to tough. The course... More

A really, really great golf course with incredible views (and if you are like me, great views of the planes taking off from Palm Springs airport). The staff is kind and really tries to move groups along as the course gets a lot of play. The course is in terrific shape, but the greens are a bit marked from so... More

A gem of the 7 courses we played in one week in early January. The whole experience was worthwhile. The clubhouse, restaurant and golf course were all top shelf... add in superior service and it makes it fabulous experience
