A beautiful course

Amazing layout and fairways. Greens were difficult due to recent heats so very bumpy with dry patches and hard to play. Pace was moderate but the Marshall was on the slow groups. I will definitely be back.

Didn't live up to expectations

Taking into account I played on the hottest day on record and in the afternoon, the course was in ok condition. Heard this was a course not to miss playing while in Palm Springs, I was disappointed. No water anywhere, no cart service, but staff was friendly. Would like to play in when it is better condition because back nine had a fun layout

Golfing Experience

My son and I throughly enjoyed our golf round this morning at Indian Hills. The course was in optimal condition. Just absolutely beautiful layout and features. We will include this course on our regular golfing rotation of courses. We look forward to playing it again.

Beautiful layout

Challenging course th some narrow fairways and very tricky greens with plenty of undulation. More blind shots than I would like but if you can manage your game you can make do. A fun round in a picturesque setting.

Great course

Great course in great condition. Pace of play was a little slow since they had a drivable par 4 on back. I took some pictures of the scenic views. Greens were fast but fair. They had drink stations every 3 holes for ice and water. The fairways can be a little tight at times.

Indian Wells Celebrity Course

I’ve played both celebrity and player course multiple times. They are very enjoyable for average golfers. The course was in excellent condition. The staff are friendly. The off course amenities are great. The only negative is the cost for a round of golf. It has gone up over five times the cost the first several years that I played the courses.
