Undergoing rebrand away from Westin Mission Hills. I felt a bit misled in the booking because I would not have knowingly booked Westin Mission Hills. The course condition a year ago was poor, burned out, terrible greens. Yesterday was the same. Limited staff, poor service, nobody seems to care after they lost the LPGA a year or two ago. There is much better value at many courses in the area. Bag drop guy said they are shutting down the course for overseed the next day, but that doesn’t mean we should expect an unattended course either. Avoid until peak winter season, perhaps.

Lack of maintenance

Very badly maintained. Greens were hard and slow. Roughs are ridiculous, can't find a ball unless you step on it or is over it. Fairways bunkers had weed growing and doesn't seem to be raked. Putting green is a joke, has craters all over. Carts are old and GPS non working. Staff not welcoming. I'll never return or recommend.

Course not well maintained

The course condition was horrible; however, I’m sure the extreme heat Palm Springs has had to deal with has a lot to do with it. The roughs were not cut on the front nine. They were on the back 9. If you did not step on your ball, it was lost. The greens ran very slow. That said I give the maintenance crew a lot of credit given the conditions they are under.

Great Dye course in Horrible Condition

The greens are in bad shape, very long and slow, but the rough made the course completely unplayable. Multiple residents came out to ask if the course was as bad as it seemed. One even asked to video record us standing in rough 18” deep. Anything out of the fairway was either lost or took 10 minutes to find. Lots of excuses but nobody warned us about the rough not being mowed for at least a month according to the residents.

Imposible to find ball if you not in the fairway!

The course is not bad. If you are not in the fairway, it’s imposible to find your balls. We lost so many balls 3 feet from the fairway. I feel that I should get a refund or some kind of discount. The course was horrible.

Highway Robbery

I was prepared to give the course somewhat of a pass, because they were closing down the very next day for two weeks for aerification. However, the staff that I spoke with let me know that the course has been this way all year. The first cut of rough is not being managed whatsoever. When the grass is cut, the long shavings are simply left on the ground and not addressed. The traps do not have sand in them and many are even without a rake. The dirt in the bunkers is more like mud than actual sand. The greens are brutally slow as well. For $85, I feel like I was robbed. This is a $50 course at best with the condition that it's in.

Epic course/ Poor course management

Wow. Excited to play, but then then pain set in. First, you gotta park and the. walk about 1/4 mile to clubhouse. Then To find it not open before my 6am scheduled tee time. So couldn’t purchase a coffee, any balls, nor warm up. I thought this was a Westin. However the Pete dye course is amazing. But to bad the maintenance crew couldn’t return the flag after mowing the greens. So to play a round without flags sucked. Then to have some random local members just pull off the street and started playing in front of us was the final straw. How does this. Sad to say. The experience sucked. Sorry Pete Due. They did you wrong at this location.

Good Course

From the sliver (white) tees it is a very short course and not hard if you can keep it in the fairway. Playing in summer, the greens will be punched and sanded, making putting not fun.

Aerated Greens

Played this course for the first time, a nice Pete Dye course design. Staff was very friendly. The course was in decent shape, for being start of summer. Fairways were good, few brown spots here and their, bunkers were firm, at least the two I was in. The greens were just recently aerated, so don’t expect a nice true roll with your ball. I had a lot of bouncing and change in direction of my ball. Bring plenty of water as they only have water at the 4th hole and clubhouse, also bring your own towel. Parking is only in a gated lot, their is a bag drop off and call for shuttle to pick you up, don’t forget to get your parking ticket validated.

Please Add Aeriated/Sanding to Golf Now

Was a bit disappointed to drive 90 minutes to course to find out that it had been recently aeriated and sanded. Both fairways and greens. When making reservation, there should be a banner that warns you of these conditions.
