Great course which have always wanted to play since it was long on the PGA tour. Interesting and challenging holes, lots of elevation changes, slick greens. Great staff who offered us to play 27 holes. We got in 22 because a rare desert rainstorm chased us away. Would play it again in a second.

Played the Blues (6441/71.0/127) on the Classic 2/Lake combo with Mike in around 3 1/2 H. There were only a few other groups out, it was close to 115 with a little breeze.

This is not a tight course, most fairways have generous landing areas. Many mature trees surround the fairways that are often well bunkered. The green complexes were very traditional. Average in size and sloped from back to front, falling off to each side with few tiers to contend with. 18 solid holes of golf that kept things interesting as we made our way through mostly older but very nice homes.

The Bermuda tees were mostly lush, very good. Mostly level with few unfixed divots and good coverage, only the par 3's needed divot repair.

The Bermuda fairways were nice to play from overall. Mostly lush with a few browned out areas that they were actively watering.

The Bermuda rough was mowed down, you could often play longer clubs from the rough. Not high or overly penal, very playable.

The sand traps were very inconsistent depth wise. Many were crusty and had not been raked that day.

The greens putted MUCH better than they looked. Relatively smooth and medium fast. The Bermuda has not taken back over from the winter over seeded grass in spite of the extreme heat. They were VERY firm, hardly no ball marks and you needed to take the firmness into account even on short irons.

They close at 2 pm in the summer. The customer service was excellent, quick efficient check-in and complementary range balls on the range. No beverage cart, but they had plenty of water stations and offered wet towels that were very nice smelling. Recommended, very fun course in better than average summer condition.

I teed off on a Wednesday at about 9:00. The course has all the feel of an old, private Palm Springs country club. The layout is moderate in length, with very mature trees lining the fairways and well-placed bunkers. The fairways and rough were quite good for the middle of summer, and the greens rolled very well. The staff was friendly and welcoming to me as a non-member. I would definitely play again and recommend to others.

Finally, a course that truly earns a 5 star rating! I have played several courses in the Coachella Valley that have 4 and 5 star ratings on this web site... So far, the Bermunda Dunes Country Club is the first course that truly earns this rating. Flat and well maincured tee boxes. Lush fairways and rough. Perfectly smooth and fast greens - but not too fast. And sand traps that are properly maintained!!! (Which is rare in the Coachella Valley). And a friendly staff to top it all off. The only thing that could possibly make these courses better would be to make them a bit more difficult - and possibly less expensive. But why would they "mess" with near perfection? You can pay more, but why would you?

I played Bermuda Dunes in 1965 in the Southern California Intercollegiate Tournament. I remembered holes 17 and 18 but surprisingly no others. A thrill to come back. Beautiful course with houses closer to the fairways on the Classic Front Nine than the Classic Back or newer nine. Conditions perfect and the greens are unbelievably tough due to the speed that has to be at least 11 1/2 on Stimp Meter. Still a treat after nearly 50 years!!!

The course is maintained well. The fairway bunkers typically don't come into play. But the green side bunkers make up for that.

Beautiful course, in great shape and excellent greens. The traps were groomed with the best sand I ever hit out of. Play was a little slow but no pressure from the folks behind us made it tolerable. Played from the blues (95) but if you want to stretch it out there we're 2 more boxes behind that. I thought the course was an OK value at a $120 round. It was the most expensive one I played that week. I'd do it again.

Two rounds in 5 hours 2 minutes. 36 HOLES!!! For the time of year, Sept 27, a few days before overseeding starts, the course was still in great shape. The greens were true, very flat, but the speeds were hard to gauge. Fairways were still green and like carpet. Bunkers were soft.

Cant remember the last time I played 36 holes without a person in front of us. Literally there was no one on the course.

Amazing round!

Its Bermuda Dunes what can I say? Classic old school country club style course with history. I played it in the heat of summer so greens were tough...slow, soft, previously punched and hairy. I would never say don't play this course, it makes you play every club in your bag at some point.
