Not worth the money

The course is not in good shape, the greens were good but fairways were not and everything was looking dated.

Great Track

If you want to have a fun round that doesn't beat you up, The Gary Player Course is the ticket. Nice layout, the lakes are not overly intimidating and the place is reasonably well maintained for a public facility. Troon just took over the management and should, in time, tune the conditions up to their usual high standards.
Staff is very friendly, great practice facilities, carts are clean and have GPS on them. The little grill room does simple burgers, dogs and sandwiches well. I look forward to playing the course again this summer.

Fun course, needs support

The staff in the clubhouse was great. However, when I made the. turn at 10:40, I saw a sign on the door saying "due to weather, we will close at 1 pm (,snackbar). I decided not to get anything yo eat based on that. I finished the front nine in 1,:45. So I get finished at 12:30, and the sign says they will close at 12 pm "due to weather." Due to weather? Wtf? How about sticking to the original time since people are relying on that to eat.

Player

Rode the Golds (6643/71.5/126) in 3.5H mid morning with Austin and Aldrin. I was definitely the short hitter in this bunch. Upper 90's, hazy and breezy made for decent golfing conditions when play was moving.

Tees had good coverage but some were beat up and could use more divot repair.

Fairways were lush, well maintained and nice to play from. Few unfixed divots.

Rough was decent, unlevel mowed down Bermuda in most cases.

Traps were an absolute mess. Many had standing water and many others had previously had water run off issues. Some of the worst traps I have played from in a good while.

Greens were very good. smooth, medium fast and very firm. Often could not find where my iron or pitch shot hit, basically no ball marks. Not alot of break on these greens.

First time here in over a year and a half. Conventional, old school Palm Springs layout, the exterior of the course is surrounded by homes &/or streets on all sides. No holes with a wow factor, but a very solid layout that is fun to play. Very good practice and warm up facilities with complementary balls. Customer service excellent all around. Plenty of water stations on the course. No drink cart but they stock the ice chest with ice. GPS to the F/M/B of greens on the standard carts. Recommended.

Overpriced

Nice course but $40 more that courses in the same category. Will find other courses until they come to their senses regarding price. More $$ than Desert Willow and PGA courses.

Fun & Challenging

Course well laid out. Nice amount of water but lots of bunkers. It was a good challenge for both the single and double digit handicappers in our group.

Very slow play on front nine. Had to follow a tournament scramble. Didn’t know that at start. Also starter didn’t let us know pin placement.

Diamond in the rough

Totally blown away by this course! Everything was in great shape. The greens are small, but roll true. So you need to make sure you hit your target. But the course makes up for that hardship by being forgiving everywhere else. Played for $60 on a Hot Deal. I'll definitely be coming back!

Very nice course.

My wife and I really enjoyed our round. There were a few spots that could use some work, but overall a very nice course. Back 9 pace of play got a bit slow. We did find it a bit pricy for what's out there.

Awesome course!!!

Loved the course. Honestly was a little too easy. The greens aren’t that fast and don’t break more than 2 feet. Other then being accused for crashing the cart when it was handed to me like that it was an awesome experience. Highly recommend it and you’ll for sure feel as if you got your moneys worth.
