Not as good as before

So much construction and lack of comms on how to get to clubhouse. Walked all over before I found starter. Not enough carts.

Not worth it

Terrible experience. Pace of play was awful - took 5.5 hours to finish the round. Started at 11:20am and almost ran out of daylight. No marshal around to manage the pace of play, and when we complained to the pro shop they did nothing about it. Course is average, but nowhere near worth it if it’s going to take that long to play. Save your money and go somewhere else.

Dye course good

Greens were excellent except a little slow as all courses are right now. Typical dye design with lots of bunkers and greens that were relatively small.

Stunning full length course

The Pete Dye course at Westin mission hills is a must play. We played the 2nd day it reopened after their overseeding program. The course is Long and challenging and a great layout. Loved the fact that the driving range and Outting green are right there. We paid $109 pp including cart for a 6:20am tee time which was exceptional value. My only criticism is that you couldn’t grab a quick coffee before you went out. They directed me to the coffee shop on the other side of the hotel lobby (inconvenient) and although it had just opened, they had not yet started brewing coffee and I didn’t have 8-10 minutes to wait. Beer cart had epic breakfast burritos and coffee by hole #7 so that was good.

Nice course

Fairways are in good condition, greens rolled true but were a little slow, tee boxes are in good condition, the traps were wet packed sand. The traps are just in terrible condition. I would suggest picking up your ball rack the area (to fluff it up a bit) and replace your ball in the racked area.

Worth playing at least once

We have a 1:40pm tee time on a Wed afternnoon. We arrive an hour early, pull into the Westin parking lot that shows you'll pay $22 for parking. There's a sign in the lot that informs you to call the golf shop and they'll send a cart to pick you up. We call 3 times with no answer, so we walked the 1/4 mile around the hotel to the pro shop. My wife was none too pleased. I informed the pro about our displeasure, and he apologized profusely, validated our parking and asked if we'd like to go off early to get ahead of some slower groups. So we did. The course was in good shape, but they had yet to mow the fairways and greens from the over-seeding. A little shaggy, but still manageable. The bad thing about this Pete Dye course is that it's a public course. They book tee times 5 minutes apart and there are no Marshalls on the course to manage slow play. After 4hrs, we still had 5 holes to play and we were so frustrated with the groups in front (who were really bad golfers) that we just gave up. I was really mad because I was only 2 over at that point. But we needed to get back to our hotel and check on our dog. I really liked the course, but it is much easier than the Pete Dye Course at Mission Hills (which is private). I'd call this course a Pete Dye "Light" course. It's situated inside a neighborhood and he didn't have as much room to be is normal "sadistic" self on every hole.
