Desert Willow Golf Resort – The Legendary Golf Oasis
Desert Willow Golf Resort in Palm Desert, Calif. is a world class public golf resort with nationally-ranked courses that will deliver an up-scale “private club”-like golf and dining experience.
The Firecliff and Mountain View golf courses continue to provide two very different, yet exceptional desert golf experiences. Test your skills against the natural hazards and myriad water features of the challenging Firecliff Course (Ranked No. 134 by Golfweek magazine’s “2022 BEST Resort Course – Top 200”) or play a smoother, more relaxing round on the magnificent Mountain View Course.

Desert Willow continues to be a must-play for domestic and international visitors, corporate and association groups, and men’s and ladies’ golf clubs from across the country and around the world.
The Firecliff Course is a true test of skill where golfers must negotiate their way around extensive natural areas, numerous water features and more than 100 bunkers and waste areas. While enjoying your round, remember to take in your surroundings and appreciate the Desert Willow views and beauty.
The Mountain View Course was designed to highlight rolling fairways, flowing water features, and natural desert floral. Beautifully-framed mountain views, undulating greens surrounds, and eight tee selections (including three combo tees), give Mountain View its own distinct personality from our slightly more challenging, tournament-quality Firecliff Course.
The mile-long Desert Willow Drive sets the pace with views of manicured fairways and serene desert landscape. The experience continues as you enter the 33,000 square foot clubhouse (ranked No. 35 by Club Resort Business’s Top-Ranked Clubhouses 2021) which includes the Terrace Restaurant, the Vista and Lobby Bar, the Firecliff Ballroom, and the Lakeview and Palm Desert Terraces.
Upon entry, a magnificent Dale Chihuly glass sculpture makes an impressive first impression – soon to be overshadowed by the vistas you can’t escape. The beauty of the course, framed by the surrounding Santa Rosa Mountains provide exquisite settings for weddings, awards dinners, corporate and association events. Restaurant and bar guests will drink in an unmatched setting with some of the most stunning views in Palm Desert while the resort’s professional staff provides a friendly and comfortable atmosphere for golfers and non-golfers alike.
