Not a bad experience

Range was closed due to No Balls. Ok since unpacked balls were laying about the range and nobody stopped you from hitting them.
Front nine mostly played thru housing community but otherwise good layout. Back 9 was in hills with houses but much more open and a bit longer. Were around the greens and fairways the course playing area was well maintained.
Priced right and although brown and weeds

Good value

Conditions were average. Good value for the green fee. We enjoyed it. Beers are too expensive though. :)

Good Value For Money

This course is the oldest that we played in five days of golf in the Palm Springs area. The club house and nearby ditch were not appealing. However, once on the course we found some challenging holes and some easier ones. The pace was good. We kept up with those ahead and never felt pushed by those behind. We had fun on this course!

Good course, but way overpriced

We used to play this course a lot and felt we got value for our money. Now the course is charging twice as much and not offering great conditions.
The 10th hole has been shortened considerably, but we weren't told about this by the pro shop or the starter. I don't think the scorecard has been changed yet and of course, our gps meters didn't have the change updated.
We like the course and would love to play it again, but not for the price that Cathedral Canyon GC is demanding.

Cow patch

I was very disappointed in the condition of this course, as there is clearly potential for it to be an above average site.
They have lots of water hazards to work with, but the traps are often filled with half sand and half gravel.
The fairway grass is also very disappointing. This time of year it should be easy for them to have it lush and green.
We will not be back, as there are many other places we can visit.
