Perfect for golf enthusiasts in the Pacific Northwest, Desert Willow Golf Resort offers a prestigious and private club-like atmosphere that caters to your every need.

Two Exceptional Courses to Choose From

The resort’s pride and joy, the Firecliff and Mountain View golf courses, continue to amaze golfers of any skill level. The Firecliff Course, ranked No. 23 by Golfweek magazine’s “2023 BEST courses you can play,” challenges your skills with natural hazards, water features, and over 100 bunkers and waste areas.

For those seeking a more relaxed round, the Mountain View Course is a picturesque choice. Designed with rolling fairways, flowing water features, and natural desert flora, it provides a tranquil golfing experience. With eight tee selections, including three combo tees, it has a distinct personality from the slightly more challenging Firecliff Course.

The clubhouse features the Terrace Restaurant, the Vista and Lobby Bar, the Firecliff Ballroom, and the Lakeview and Palm Desert Terraces.
