Beautiful Course-Friendly staff

From the moment you arrive until you leave the staff make you feel very welcome. The course is visually stunning. One of the most attractive to the eye I’ve played. It’s a good test and I would play again if the opportunity comes up

Beautiful Course - staff is amazing except pro shop manager today

Beautiful course - would love to come back but will not because of my experience with pro shop desk employee. He was rude and inconsiderate. You would think +200$ round of golf in off season 100 degree temps they would appreciate your support. Not so today .

An oasis in the desert

This golf facility never disappoints. And the city
Continues to support it with annual upgrades.
The check in to tee off is done right and they didn’t cut staff due to the summer months… the course was immaculate….. every inch of was groomed and the blow the grass off the fairways and rough after cutting … not many courses have such attention to detail… course marshall was polite and engaged…. Constantly on the course …. We played in 3:30 on a tight course ….. don’t miss it…. Could be the best in the public/semi private space

The gnats killed my round!

I would have given this course 5 Stars across the board had I not been eaten alive by gnats on the back nine. It's really hard to play golf, let alone enjoy oneself when there are bugs in your eyes and flying up your nose. Gotta change fertilizers!

The customer service from the staff here is well worth the green fee alone

Great customer service at this course. The staff was super friendly and attentive all while working in 100+ degree weather. Course was challenging but beautiful. Would definitely play here again.

GOLFERS DREAM IN THE DESERT

This course was well maintained with friendly staff and amazing facility. From pulling up to the bag drop & valet to finishing 18 holes, this course was everything I could dream of. I would totally recommend this course and I cannot wait to come back.

Incredible course let down by condition of the greens.

The course is exquisite however was let down by the condition of the greens. They were quick enough but very patchy, a lot of dead spots. If not careful they will lose the greens. tTe layout is challenging and very pleasing to the eye and a good test of golf! Will definitely play again next time I’m in Palm Springs but will be checking the greens condition first.

Starter was a real character and added to the fun of the course!! Front 9 is very tight!!

Too slow for me

The course was in fine shape including the greens considering it was 100 degrees in June. Layout was pretty challenging for a resort course with several blind shots and a lot of water. it's probably the reason for the slow pace of play. we started at 8:20 and waited virtually every hole from the start. Finally we gave up after the 15th hole four hours into the round. As we drove past the last 3 hole we noticed that they were probably the hardest holes on the course, so we were convinced that it would have been another hour to finish. We also noticed the group in front of us was a full hole behind.
It was Father's Day so there may have been several once a year golfers out.
With that being said, a marshal might be helpful in moving things along
