The resort is home to two 18-hole championship golf courses designed by the renowned architect Ted Robinson. These courses not only challenge and delight players of all levels but also offer stunning views and an unforgettable golfing experience.

The Palm and Valley Courses

The Palm Course and The Valley Course are jewels in the crown of the JW Marriott Desert Springs Resort & Spa. Both courses are masterfully designed, showcasing the unique beauty of the desert landscape while providing an engaging challenge for golfers.

The Palm Course

It's known for its breathtaking waterways and mountain views. This course requires precision and strategy, with water coming into play on 16 of the 18 holes. Its signature 18th hole, featuring a challenging island green, is a fitting finale that tests the skill and nerve of even the most seasoned golfers.

The Valley Course

It offers wide fairways and large greens, making it slightly more forgiving for the amateur golfer. However, don't be deceived by its openness; strategic bunkering and the use of natural terrain ensure that every hole has its challenge. The Valley Course is also noted for its stunning vistas, with the surrounding mountains providing a dramatic backdrop to your game.

Golf Experience

Both courses at the JW Marriott Desert Springs Resort & Spa benefit from the meticulous attention to detail that is a hallmark of Ted Robinson designs. From the lush fairways to the meticulously manicured greens, every aspect of these courses is maintained to the highest standard, ensuring a premium golfing experience.

Golfers can enjoy the convenience of a full-service pro shop, professional instruction to hone their game, and electric golf carts equipped with the latest GPS technology for yardage and course navigation. After a round, players are invited to relax in the comfortable clubhouse, where they can enjoy refreshing beverages and delicious dining options while reflecting on their game.
