Lush course with great Mountain View’s

My wife and I really enjoyed the Mountain course. We were paired up with 2 younger guys who were a pleasure to play with. The course was in mint condition. Greens slow but that’s understandable after overseeding. The views are awesome, especially on the front 9. Photos don’t do it justice. There was a frost delay in the morning so management knew pace of play would be slow. They proactively gave a discount at check in. Class act. We teed off at 1pm and had 4 holes left at 4:30. Fortunately the group ahead quit and we were able to quickly play the last 4 holes and finish a little after 5pm.

Great course.

I played here because it was one of the only decent courses open. I learned that most courses in Palm Springs close for overseeding and rehab during the early to mid fall. The mountain course had just reopened after overseeding. The fairways and rough was great. The greens were a bit slow as I assume they are going easy on them for a while after the over seed. Pace of play was great. A foursome went around in 4:15. Lots of staff to help you. I stayed and played the Firecliff course after. Not as good as the Mountain IMO, and it was in worse condition as they are about to close it for overseeding. Replay rate was only $65 and again we played in about 4:15-30. I’ know there are better courses in Palm Springs but this is excellent for the money and doesn’t feel like a muni to me at all.

We don't put "fivesomes" on the course

On Sep 1 the Marshall warned our twosome we would run into a fivesome, and they would let us play through and they did. On Sep 8 our twosome was flying through course and ran into a fivesome on 9. After waiting, we explored going to 12 and then returned to 9. After playing 9 a threesome cut in front of us. Neither would let us through. We played behind both for 2-3 holes then returned to 9 to create space. It worked well until 18 when we caught the threesome. We quit. After playing I complained to the manager on duty about the fivesomes our last two rounds and he said they never put fivesomes on the course and based on his standards I had a fast round.

Great Summer Conditions

Played the Mountain course and Tee boxes, Fairways and Greens were all in great shape considering the summer conditions. Better than my home CC in Central Texas! Beverage cart was very regular, saw her 3 times on 18 holes.

Challenging course in great condition for a great value

Great course for the value. Beautiful condition. Only complaint was pace of play, just stuck behind a very amateur group that probably wasn’t ready for this type of course. Just unlucky. Marshall’s we’re out pushing them as much as they could. But they also were having a bee infestation happening on a lot of holes. Bees swarming the bunkers and other area. And these bees were massive. Not aggressive, just actives not too bad of a nuisance if you weren’t in the sand lol. And they had bee keepers addressing the problems on some holes they are definitely aware. Overall great course. Will definitely play again!

Great condition, great staff

This course is outstanding value. Really good condition for summer—probably better than just about any SoCal muni, which is impressive considering that this is the desert. Staff is very courteous and helpful. Low green fees are well worth it if you can stand the midday heat—although they have ice and water every few holes. Pace of pay during midday is blazing fast. I went out solo and finished under 3 hours.
