Desert Springs Golf Resort

Last Updated:

What we say

Desert Springs Golf Resort is Arizona-style golf but a lot closer to home. After a less-than-promising opener which will have you fretting about slicing into the swimming pools of some expensive-looking villas, the golf course opens out into an entertaining and well-manicured test of golf with some satisfyingly testing holes whose generous fairways and greens mean that all standards of player can enjoy a game. In terms of the Arizona-ness of the experience it leaves a little to be desired – though maybe that has something to do with TG's visit coinciding with a year's worth of rain falling in a weekend!

The Indiana course opened in 2001 and is a spectacular example of man’s creativity in harmony with nature; its emerald green fairways are set amongst massive rocky outcrops, arroyos and dry rivers. The quality of the course is confirmed by its selection by the Ladies Golf Union and the Golf Union of Wales, as their “Spanish Home” and also by the Royal Spanish Golf Federation, for whom Desert Springs hosted the 2004 & 2007 Spanish Amateur Open.

  • 4.5 out of 5 Not Really a Desert Course

    By dossel

    You could not have asked for a better welcome from all staff we met. The practise facilities where the best I have seen, the chipping green was faster than most normal greens in England and the putting green was very true. After a good warm up we went to the first tee. Here is where the course slightly loses marks. A desert course should have sand around the fairways and rough. Unfortunately instead of sand, it was a mixture of compacted earth and hard core, which would wreck your golf club. We decided off the first tee that anything in the desert would be played from the rough. That was the only downside to the course. The tee boxes excellent, fairways lovely to play off and the green the best and truest I have played. This is a really good course but unless you want to ruin your clubs not really a desert course.
