Nice Layout

Very windy day, and many holes were in to the wind. Apparently it is a windy area as I could see Wind Turbines from the course. The pace of play was a little slow. There were no marshalls to help with that. overall, we enjoyed the day.

30+ years later and still no restrooms on course

Overall the course was in pretty good condition. Greens running slower than they looked, and don't break as much as you think. Hit it hard right at the hole and you'll make more putts.
Fairways, tees, sand all in good shape.
The sand areas and ditches along some fairways place a premium on hitting straight.
Played from Blues in 3.5 hours, so a nice quick round.

Cimarron

Rode the Blues (6328/69.6/117) with GDR23, Ian and James. 3H, 45M POP early morning in warm, calm, sunny conditions in the 80's. Then rode the Blacks (6747/72.0/124) in the afternoon with Gary. Again, around 3H, 45M. Seemed longer playing behind a Sr. 4some.

By far the best I have ever seen Cimarron look and play!

Tees lush with most divots already properly maintained.

Fairways lush with few unfixed divots.

Rough lush, maintained and not very penal. However, if you miss the grass rough the native areas are 50/50 on whether you can play your ball even if you find it.

Sand traps were decently maintained but too many rocks in them to be considered good.

Greens were fairly smooth/firm and putted medium speed. No huge slopes or tiers on these greens, but there is rarely a straight putt anywhere.

No on course services. Excellent customer service from all encountered. Carts have GPS to the front/middle & back of the green along with hole tips. No Starter, Marshall or Drink cart most days. Restaurant onsite was open, as was the all grass range open. Fun course in excellent shape. Recommended.

Emerald Green for March

The rains of early March turned most of Palm Springs into a green wonderland, and Cimarron was no different. Fairways were perfect, rough was lush but playable, and the greens were a little slower than I like but consistent. I’ve played this course several times and this is the best condition it’s been in.

Cimmeron

Windy windy windy it’s always windy there. Some fun holes but design is back & forth & back & forth. For $50-$60, you get what you pay for. Ok warm up course.

Definitely a course to play

Had a great day here. From the beautiful surroundings to the overall layout of the course this is a must play for me. Maybe the fact that I hit a 25 foot putt for par on the first hole may make my view a bit skewed, but I still had a great time playing here. Wind got a bit crazy on the back 9 ( later in the afternoon), but I found the greens easy to read and it helped with scoring.

Pace

T-times not spaced adequately causing waiting on EVERY SINGLE SHOT = 5hr+ round!

Also...port-a-poties for toilets; are you kidding me??

Greens running less than 8; no good reason to be so slow for Palm Desert this time of year!!!

Fairways and greens are in good shape, but could not putt the ball hard enough to get it to the hole. Our home greens are fast and these greens seemed super slow. I would not call this course picturesque, but we enjoyed it.
