Poor course conditions for the cost.

What a disappointment it was to play this icon of a course from the rat pack Era. The course is in rough shape from the fairways that were muddy to the many bunkers that were under repair without sand, wet or returning to their natural state. The greens had tufts of grass growing here and there and were like navigating potholes on a disintegrating roadway. At $90.00 a round I would never play this course again, nor would I recommend it to a friend!!

Dog track

The course needs work. This was the 6th course I played over 2 weeks. Greens are poor, must have some kind of fungus. Bunkers around the greens need sand. For $110, not worth it.

Historic Course Left Something to be Desired

First time playing here and was looking forward to pristine course conditions and a challenging course. The fairways were in good condition and green, but the rough and the areas between tee's were in rough shape. Dead yellow grass lined the perimeter of each fairway and the recent rains left lots of mud puddles around the cart paths. Kind of disappointing for the price. Would play the South Course instead next time. Clubhouse was old and not kept up well with the mid modern design. The course wandering through the neighborhood was fun and interesting. Great views of the mountains.

Don’t waste your time

No where near worth the price. Course was in sad shape. Sad to see such a property so badly neglected.

Go across the road to the south course.

This course has more of an old timey feel to it than their other course. If that isn’t so important to you when you’re golfing (which it isn’t to me) I would say the few extra dollars you spend to play at the south course are more than worth it. It has much better conditions and a more interesting layout.

A Classic

Great "old School" Palm Springs course surrounded by classic mid-century modern homes, towering 70' palm trees. The course is a wee bit narrow but the fairway bunkers are almost all grown in making it a bit easier to play. The course plays long on some of the uphills but is a pleasure to play.

A beautiful day to play

Is this a good track, not yearly difficult but a true pleasure to play. The staff was great although we only saw the cart person once. We are looking forward to playing the course again.

Disappointing

I was disappointed in this course as I was expecting better. The greens have no grass & an approach shot just bounces off. The fairways were ok but anything not on the fairway is in dirt.
The reputation of this course is much better than the actual product

Skip this course and save your money

Course is poor condition. Fairway bunkers not maintained- told to play them as ground under repair. Greens are very fast because the grass is not growing. Too bad because I don’t remember it being bad pre Covid.

too bad

This course is unfortunately in the worse condition I've seen it for the past 10 years. The greens appear to be burned or without proper grass. The rough is almost dirt. fairway bunkers are not maintained. I hope they can bring this classic course back up to par.

South is better

This course needs irritating.! Fairways are dry and the rough is dead grass. The greens are like concrete and roll forever. The fairway bunkers are not maintained so considered GUR. The south course is way better and with the extra money. A/C casino which owns this course has plans other than golf in the future I imagine which is why it feels neglected. Staff are really good though- friendly and helpful.
