Few other Coachella Valley courses this time of year are as nice to play as this one. Greens and fairways are in great shape unlike many others that are being aerated or over-seeded

I have played this course for over 15 years and this is the best it's ever been. Even though the weather was very hot it was a pleasant experience despite the heat. Will definitely be back.

Fantastic Condition.

For late July in 110+ temps for 6 weeks this course looks and was in excellent condition. The price for the course condition and overall experience is 5 out of 5, top notch, and an A+ For me. Highly recommend for all.

Last Resort

If there is another course within a $10 green fee - consider it. Charged full area going rate of $40 (to play back 9 twice.) Bad deal. Drove 20 minutes to get there so I played anyway.

Half the fairways look like a bad hair transplant. You’re hitting off dirt a lot. Greens were slow.

Mosquitos were plentiful and unabated. Constantly being attacked. Bring repellent!

Carts have no GPS. There are no water fountains or drinking water on the course.

There ARE better options. Will avoid this course in the future.

Couples Golf

Played with our wives and they enjoyed it immensely. Course layout was ideal and more forgiving but yet challenging enough. Driving range was under construction was a disappointment. Pace of play was a little slow on front 9 but opened up on back. Course is relatively open but can be deceiving with sand hazard areas on perimeter. I would recommend this course and play it again. Note- 17th hole green was in terrible condition.
