Palm Desert Resident Rate

In 1997, the City of Palm Desert opened Desert Willow Golf Resort in an effort to increase tourism and revenue to the City. However, as a municipal golf course, the City felt that residents should have the opportunity to enjoy Desert Willow’s amenities at a reduced rate. As a result, City Council approved the Palm Desert Resident Golf Card Program which provides Palm Desert residents the ability to play Desert Willow at special discounted rates. Learn More...

In order to obtain a Palm Desert Resident Golf Card, one must bring proof of residency to the Palm Desert Community Center located at 43-900 San Pablo Avenue in Palm Desert between the hours of 6:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. Monday through Friday or 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on Saturdays.

According to the City Council approved Palm Desert Resident Golf Card Guidelines and Rules, proof of Palm Desert residency consists of a valid California Driver's License or Identification Card with the applicant’s name and Palm Desert address and a current utility bill (i.e. gas, water, or electric not more than 30 days old) with the applicant’s name and Palm Desert service address. If the applicant does not have a valid California Driver's License with Palm Desert address, they may obtain a California Identification Card issued by the Department of Motor Vehicles. Please note that both of the requested proof of residency items must reflect the name of the resident and same Palm Desert address. No exceptions will be made.

If you would like more information on the Palm Desert Resident Golf Card Program, please call (760) 346-0611, ext. 425, or contact us.  

RESIDENTS WILL BE REQUIRED TO SHOW A VALID PALM DESERT RESIDENT CARD AT TIME OF CHECK-IN. A DRIVER'S LICENSE IS NOT A VALID PROOF OF RESIDENCY. 

Practice Fees

General use of Practice Facility, Chipping, Putting, and Full Swing areas....$30.00 per person*
*Desert Willow Golf Resort requires that all guests check in prior to playing golf or using any area of the practice facilities.

Members of the Platinum Club Card program are entitled to a 50% discount off of the driving range rate.
