Read a Review from a Couple of Recent Renters


Had a wonderful time at desert falls - We have stayed several times in rented condo's on the golf course. Your location is definately the best we have experienced - probably one of the best in the whole complex. Your furnishings are 1st class.

Again thanks for the use of your wonderful condo.

Golf at the falls

Voted one of the top 10 courses in the desert by the SCPGA. Take a look at this aerial view of the Desert Falls Clubhouse.


Desert Falls is what many consider to be one of the best golf courses in the desert. The 7,000 yard link style Par 72 course features superb Tifdwarf greens and 5 tee placements on every hole. Playing Desert Falls is challenging yet rewarding.

That's what makes this course so irresistible.

Our Course - A Challenge For Everyone

By Larry Bohannan
The Desert Sun

PALM DESERT - As home of the Drysdale Hall of Fame Golf Classic, Desert Falls Country Club will challenge the games of great athletes who may or may not have great golf games. But Desert Falls is one of the courses in the desert that also challenges a professional golfer's game.

The course earned a 145 slope rating from the back tees, putting it among the five highest slope ratings in the Coachella Valley. But the back-tee difficulty shouldn't scare the average player away from the course, said Ray Miller, director of tournaments at Desert Falls.
"They made this course with five sets of tees on almost every hole," Miller said. "Our signature hole, No. 14, can be played from 218 yards or 137 yards. That's how they set the tees up."
The difficulty comes from lots of sand, plenty of water and a series of demanding par-3s.
The bunkers might be the most prominent feature of Ron Frehm's design. Holes like the par-5 fourth and the par-3 sixth have massive bunkers, while virtually every hole has at least one strategically placed trap.

"The sand traps are not only many, they are huge," Miller said. In fact, I kind of bite my tongue when I say this, but some people get into a trap and they can't get it out, because they just go from one trap to another."
While most courses have a single signature hole, Desert Falls features three such holes. The par-3 14th, at 170 yards from the white tees, is among the toughest in the desert. The massive green is 18,000 square feet, in essence three greens in one. It is protected by bunkers to the front and back.

Championship  72  7017  135  73.70
Middle  72  6555  128  71.30
Forward  72  5313  124  71.70
Other  72  6174  121  69.30

The ninth hole is a tricky par-5 that can tempt longer bitters into going for the green in two over a lake.

The hole shares a double green with the par-4 18th, a demanding par-4 at 437 yards with the green protected by more sand and water.

The lake and waterfall in front of the large double green are the most imposing water on the course. But water also comes into play on the first, 10th and 12th holes.
Desert Falls is one of the many courses in the desert to switch from bent greens to bermuda in the last few years. Desert Falls made the change last summer, and the bermuda greens were in place for the Drysdale event last year. With one full year of growth, the greens should putt even better than last year.

"The greens are just absolutely perfect this year," Miller said. In fact if you remember the humidity we had this last summer, they almost seemed to thrive on it."
Desert Falls is also known for its unique site, which allows for views of almost the entire valley.
"The vistas you get from every tee are beautiful," Miller said. "They say it's one of the highest points in the desert. There isn't a tee you can't look around the valley from."

We offer a map of all of the golf courses and country clubs in the greater Coachella Valley area of the Palm Desert.
