Golf Course Review Desert Dunes Golf Club Desert Hot Springs California

Reviewed by:     noeldaof, Antelope Valley
It wasn’t quite in the 50s yet when I got to the property though a high covered skies kept the course from a morning freeze. Winds were down the whole time we were there- not one turbine was turning- a balmy day to enjoy Robert Trent Jones, Jr.’s work of art… as expected, it did not disappoint.

GolfNow discounted greens fee for $45 for the 8:30ish tee time led to us teeing off at a few minutes before 8:00 with no one in front and no one in the back through 16 holes- perfect!

Our matches heated up early on and made it for almost a four hour round- so fun… and to be on this course with everyone cutting in on each other’s efforts scores makes it a little more quiet with just a word here and there. Very seldom this much heat comes around so we pretty much just took it all in as much as we could.

The Review

The greens were still wet, but rolled quite nicely and built up to a fast pace as we went through the course. The green-side bunker on the first hole had some water in it, but the rest were fine looking even though I was only in one at the 11th fairway bunker and 18th green.

The fairways were in good shape and without much divot , but with my luck, i managed to be in three of them. The teeing grounds from the back were just fine and we saw the front tees looking just fine. Not much rough here the way they keep it up, but the back has some with it just a few inches and it wasn’t affecting play much at all.

Beverage cart came around a few times- yes, that’s the earliest Beverage cart I’ve seen on a course. Also, the pro shop staff checked me in without any issues- smooth!

All in all the color of the course is not very green, though rest assured, the grass were alive and the course is in very good playing conditions- an A+ if I had to grade it or an 8 out of 10.

Parting Thought

Catch this course soon on a non-windy day and you’ll have the same good experience as we did today… Happy New Year!!
