Coachella Valley Golf Courses

Below is a list of golf courses in the Coachella Valley, and the date that I played that course. The courses I still have to play, of course, are those golf courses without a date played. NOTE: this is NOT a complete list. There are courses missing that I will add to this list as I get the information for them. There are also some courses I may not plan to play, like executive courses, but I'm really open to any course.

courses played out of - as of 7/17/2024

I base my grades on a number of factors:

  1. course layout - is the course layout interesting?
  2. difficulty - how challenging is the course?
  3. condition - what condition is the course in? (I do keep in mind the time of year and know that Summer is when most golf courses are not in their best shape. I can tell when a course is a little dry as opposed to just not maintained.)
  4. playability - is the course equally playable for all skill levels?
  5. club house - what is the condition of the club house and how friendly and/or helpful is the staff?

I don't base my Grades on how I played or how I was treated by my Hosts. It's purely on how I feel a golf course should play and feel and how I should be treated by the personnel.
