The Firecliff Desert Willow Golf Resort is a luxury facility just outside Palm Springs that features two courses, of which Firecliff is the superior (though the other is worth a spin). The weather is nearly always excellent and the air is pure in this idyllic setting high up in the hills of this California desert. The scenic layout features a nice balance of bright blossoms and native brush for the rough, patches of water that are simultaneously lovely and strategic, and contoured fairways. At 6400 meters long, Firecliff was clearly not meant to host tournaments—indeed, the location, facilities and courses are enough in themselves to attract clientele without the added draw of a national competition broadcast. The fairways and greens are well integrated, and over a hundred bunkers or waste areas keep players on their toes. Golf Week and Golf World have both rated the Firecliff among the best of its kind. The Mountain View The Mountain View course at Desert Willow Golf Resort was designed to be a transition between the more challenging, tournament-quality Firecliff course and the traditional course of fence to fence turfgrass, flowers and flowing water. Mountain View was intended to have each of these characteristics, but with its own distinct personality.

My first golf experience in California and a great one it was. The course maintenance is absolutely perfect and the wide open fairways make it very enjoyable. The main difficulty are the numerous water hazards, but there is enough space to avoid them. The views on the Santa Rosa mountains covered with snow are stunning. A must in Palm Springs.

Beautiful golf course in desert landscape. Tough and long you are never at rest on the Firecliff course and every missed shot can get you in real trouble. The greens are tough to read, but great to roll the ball on. The 17 is a great par 3 with water all along the right hand side and nicely placed bunkers on the left. Once you survived the 18th you are rewarded on the nice patio overlooking the 9th and 18th green by the cuisine of a French cook.
