A Must Play
Played at the end of the "summer season". Was warm for someone not from the desert. Have played several times. Some excellent holes with great views. With all the pines doesn't really feel totally like the desert. Fairly generous fairways but still need to keep out of the danger sides of the holes otherwise you can rack up a high number. One of my favorite courses to play when we get out to Palm Desert.

Wish to Play Again
Weather was extremely humid on top of a very hot day. I suspect the ambient air temp was about 130 degrees or better by 10 AM. Should probably have called it a day, but the price I had paid said I needed to keep playing. Good course, some parts unfair to handicap golfers, but would love the chance to play it again when the temp wasn't 108 degrees! Staff and food were great.

Treat in the desert
Thie classic club is an outstanding facility with a great course which was in excellent shape, great staff and excellent facilities close to the I10. There are no houses around the course which creates a nice atmosphere The course provides a tough challenge and was in perfect shape except for some inconsistent bunker conditions. A tough layout which provides a great challenge for accomplished golfers. Staff is friendly and very accommodating. Excellent!!!

Course in great shape
Played Sunday at 7:40 a.m. and yes it was hot but condition of course, welcoming staff and $79 price made it a positive trade off. Included in the price is a $15 food voucher for every paying player, a very high quality golf towel, a logo divot tool and ball marker. With virtually all complete meals priced under $15 this can't beat. What a challenging layout! Fairways and greens were immaculate as greens got tad crispy in the afternoon but it was over 100 degrees. Some sand traps had been slightly damaged by thunderstorms earlier in the week evident by hard pan at bottom of a few traps. Staff is excellent and makes you feel like they really care that your playing the course . Good times

A True Classic
Loved the course and the staff. This course was in great shape and was challenging enough for the low handicaps yet fair for the higher. Great range

Most amazing course
This course has everything you need. It came with a $15 voucher, ball mark fixer, a ball marker and a nice towel for you to keep. The course was the best course I've ever played. The grass was well maintained, I didn't see a single weed. All the staff were very friendly. It was a great way to celebrate Labor Day with my son.

Classic Club, Classic Arnie!!
Very playable ,well designed Palmer course with water hazards everywhere. Had a variety of shots, up and down hill. Outside staff was great as was the value we received for our greens fee. Definitely will return.

A Challenging Course!
Many, if not most, golf courses in Palm Springs have been constructed as part of the overall real estate housing development. Therefore, some courses, like those among the PGA West group, which were magnificent many years ago, are now clustered by houses and have become very unpleasant, for me at least, to play. The Classic Club is different. It is a stand alone golf course with magnificent mountain and water views for you to enjoy. The course is challenging with many water hazards and bunkers which require forced carries, if you want to go for it. Although some of the bunkers have packed sand, which should be expected during the summer, fairways and greens are in excellent shapes. In addition, the driving range is spacious. A minor complaint is that the GPS on the golf cart which I rode sometimes didn't seem to read the the yardage correctly. I ended up using my own Garmin for cross references. By the time I finished my round, the restaurant was closed due to its shorter summer schedule. However, I did dine there a couple times before and can attest to the quality of the food it served. In any case, my wife and I truly enjoyed the afternoon we spent at this club.
