Great staff.

Cart staff, golf shop, and manager all greeted me and were super friendly. Manager even grabbed me a bucket of range balls since they had closed the range. I’ll be back again.

New set of tees a good improvement

The course has a better selection of tees to use to fit your level of golf. Unfortunately the greens had just been punched that week so the putting wasn't fun. That is one of the problems signing up online and not knowing the condition of the course.

Thank you for reviewing the course. Let us first start by apologizing for the poor experience you had during your visit. The current condition is by no means the standard we strive to achieve and are working diligently to improve the course. Thank you for playing and we hope to see you again soon.

Nice Course, but very dry

Very Windy day, but paired with a great group & we had fun despite winds gusting up to 28 mph. Greens were not holding shots, but that is to be expected at this time of year

Interesting track in very good shape

I booked this course by accident (meant to play Palm Desert Country Club) but was very pleasantly surprised. The course was in great condition and the pace of play was excellent. I was a single following a foursome and never had to wait. There are many really good holes (particularly the par 3s), but a few holes seem a bit “squeezed” in (particularly 9 and 18). They are not bad holes , just a little funky (especially if you are playing the course for the first time.

Horrible bunkers. Weeds in the bunkers. Racked with a tractor but just 1/8 of an inch. Very hard sand under the superficial racking

One of the most beautiful courses we have played.

Hole 18 needs better instruction for those that have never played. The "Starter" was incredible! Staff super friendly! Didn't like that the lawn mower was on almost every hole with us. Since nobody was behind us, he could have followed behind us instead.
