Desert Dunes Golf Course was the first desert course designed by Robert Trent Jones, Jr. Voted as one of the best public courses in Southern California. Laid out among large dunes and mature desert trees, Desert Dunes has a unique Scottish links flavor.
This extremely challenging course has narrow fairways, fast and sloped greens, and water hazards coming into play on many holes. There are several changes in elevation throughout the course. Much of the natural desert plants and vegetation have been left in place, adding to the difficulty of the course. The par-3 fifth hole requires a long tee shot over a desert setting with a mesquite backdrop. Bent grass greens.
Desert Dunes is one of the only courses you can play in the desert without condo lined fairways and traffic noise. It is truly like a stroll through the ntamed natural desert. Special care was taken to not disturb the natural lay of the land of the animals that inhabit the area. During a round of golf at Desert Dunes, it is no uncommon to see rabbits, roadrunners, red-tailed hawks, coyotes, owls and even an occasional desert kit fox.
