My second round of my annual Palm Springs Father’s Day trip was to Eagle Falls. This is another course that I have never played in the PS area so I wanted to give it a try. It is always highly ranked on the Top 25 so I figured it would not disappoint – and it did not.

I had read previous reviews that some golfers were a little scared when they arrived that Eagle Falls. The club house is a double wide trailer with an attached cart barn. It looks like something you would see at your local municipal but looks can be deceiving.

You are instructed to cross a large bridge and head out to the golf course. Once you get across that bridge, you see what the course really has to offer. There is a massive practice putting green and a very nice all grass diving range. You have views of the first and 10th holes which look immaculate. I was a little nervous when we first arrived but realized what everyone else was talking about when I got across that bridge.

A coworker of mine drove out from the Winchester area to play with me. We ended up being the first group at at 6:30am. We finished just before 8:30am so we were done in less that 2 hours! He was just as impressed with the layout and conditions of the course as I was.

The Review

Layout – The layout of the course is great. You do not feel like you are playing the same hole over and over even though this is a pretty flat course. Some of the holes are parallel but you do not get that feeling due to the native areas and the trees that border the holes. Both of us had nothing negative to say about the layout of the course. We really enjoyed it. Be aware of the snakes in the summer time though. We saw two groundskeepers picking up King snakes and moving them off the golf course! Careful where you step!

Fairways / Rough / Greens – I would put the condition of all three up against any course around. I had just come off a spectacular round at The Mountain course. I felt that the Mountain Course would really set the bar high and I felt that this course met or exceeded those expectations. The greens at Eagle Falls were 10 times better than the greens at The Mountain course. The fairways and rough were every bit as good as the higher priced Mountain course.

Bunkers – I was not actually in a bunker so I cannot comment on their condition.

Final Thoughts

In conclusion, I was spoiled on this trip. I got to play two great courses and both courses did not disappoint. I don’t really want to say this out loud but I feel that Eagle Falls is a steal at $59 on a Saturday morning. I do not think you will find a better deal in the desert. Going back to my normal IE rotation of courses is going to be rough after the weekend that I had in Palm Springs. Give Eagle Falls a shot. It is also at the Fantasy Springs hotel so, if you do not have a good day at the course, you can try your luck at the casino.

Thank you Eagle Falls for a great Saturday morning. We will be back!
