Where2Golf says: 

The Golf Club at Terra Lago (South course): Located on the less developed, eastern side of I-10, and previously known as Landmark Golf Club, the North and South courses at Terra Lago are scenically among the most spectacular in the Palm Springs/Palm Desert area. The South course is perhaps a shade less dramatic than the North, but like its companion, the layout initially weaves its way through wonderfully undulating, desert terrain. This open and ruggedly beautiful environment will challenge and enthral in equal measure, with its many rolling elevation changes and fairways laced through the rocky, duneland wilderness. From the higher elevations, the length and breadth of the Coachella Valley is stunningly revealed, with its towering mountain ranges flanking either side. The lower sections of the front-nine loop are sliced through by the Coachella Canal, which is crossed on two occasions via Terra Lago's signature bridges, crafted from former railroad wagons. The undulating, pristine desert of the front-nine, gives way to a flatter and arguably less interesting back-nine. Starting at the short, bunker-encircled, par-3 12th, the holes make an anti-clockwise loop around an area planned for real estate development. Water hazards are sparingly used throughout, coming into play on three front nine holes courtesy of the canal and a collection of small ponds that line the par-5 8th. Only on the dog-legging par-4 10th will water threaten on the back-nine.
