Where2Golf says: 

Desert Springs Golf Club: Inspired by the famous desert courses of Arizona & California, the Indiana course at Desert Springs Golf Club is the first desert course in Europe. Extraordinary attention to detail has been paid at what you might at first think is a Tex-Mex theme park. Everything here has the look and feel of the south-western corner of the United States - the "desert-style" Indiana Course wouldn't look at all out of place in Arizona. Beyond the not overly wide slivers of fairway, lies typical desert rough, containing a fine array of cactus and wild desert flowers; beware the occasional snake or scorpion ! Ball-finding in these areas is not impossible, but playing out from the hardpan stony ground may damage those new irons of yours (its best to put an old 9-iron in your bag for these occasions). This exciting layout is relatively easy walking, with pleasant but not excessive undulations and several (often dry) water hazards. Hilly, rugged, arid countryside surrounds the course as well as holiday homes and villas on some holes. Thankfully most of the course will remain free of real estate, although at the 17th the housing was built much too close to the hole; this good short par-4 is frequently played as a modest par-3 from forward tees. For the most part this is a fun and very distinctive course, which provides an excellent test for your game. Full marks to Senore McEvoy.
