Terrible

Absolute waste of money! Water in bunkers along with weeds! Fairways were terrible. Rough was thick but I have no problem with that.

Perfect Summer Greens

Impressed by the greens being excellent to putt! Rough is long, hairy and nasty. Stay on the fairway!

Hard to find and not in great shape

First round of golf in palm springs and wasn't a great experience. To start the clubhouse was a bit tricky to find even with Google maps. Course was not well maintained with rough fairways, very rough rough. Would be a nice track if it was in better condition. Better places to play for the money.

Grounds Need Work

The fairways and greens are not in great condition.
After my round of golf, upon returning some found property in parking lot, I walked into the clubhouse and was hit with the stink of overflowing toilets or sewage. About made me sick. Although I didn’t notice it that morning, it was extremely pungent at noon…. Near the restaurant.

Same as everywhere else

Finding the course was a challenge, poor signage. Course is not bad, just the same. Fairways were sparse of grass, rough was thick and lush which appeared more of their focus. Course runs through an older neighborhood with many residents who seemed bothered that we were on “their” course. With the number of places to play, I think we’ll choose one of those and let the residents have their course to themselves.

Course conditions are not good. Perhaps it is only due to end of the season factors.

Needs some TLC

Even with a discounted rate this course was way overpriced. They told us when we got there that they had a broken water main so a few holes were dry. That was an understatement. At least five of the greens were like putting on concrete! The unpleasant experience started when we pulled up to the gate into the community. It was not clearly marked and it took a while to figure out if we were at the right place. Once inside the gate there was no clear signage directing you to the golf course.

Worst in the Valley

Rude staff, poor conditions. Could be great. Hopefully Marriott turns this around. jC Golf can get out now. Cost for this course is ridiculous compared to other cv courses.

Sad to see

I used to play here 30 plus years ago and it was a fine course. It is sad to see how bad the course condition has gotten. The layout is still pretty good except for long traverses between some holes and the wash is a mess and construction on the bridge has ruined hole #10, Greens not bad but fairways are sad and rough is filled with weeds. If it is true that Marriot has purchased the course hopefully they can bring it back to its former glory.

Nice greens, so-so course

Course had some good holes but general course conditions were about a C grade. Driving range is not good. Range balls are hit into a wash area. Greens we’re good so no complaints there but not sure I’d go back. Course winds around homes and has several lakes and ponds but is still playable.
Staff was friendly enough but overall course was below what you might expect for peak season desert layout.
