Celebrity

Rode the Blues (6642/72.3/133) with GK Guru's Vince, Marvin and Gary early morning in slightly more than 4H. Fun group to play with! The weather was calm and sunny. Cold when we started a little late after a frost delay, but had warmed nicely into the 60's by the time we finished a little before noon. Thanks to John for setting up and to Indian Wells for having the guru group out.

Tees were lush with few divots. No challenges getting level lies.

Fairways were lush and provided excellent lies.

Rough was lush and not overly penal.

Sand traps were nicely maintained with good quality sand.

Greens were good, but not great. They looked quicker than they were. They putted medium slow early morning and were up to medium speed by the end of the round. Not as smooth as previous visits here. Firm and lots of unfixed ball marks.

Beautiful, tougher than average layout. Constantly up/down hills and the large green complexes are challenging. Fourteen par 4's with only two par 5's and two par 3's = par 72. Good mix of par 4's. This course would be a beast to walk as numerous holes are a long way from the last green.

Customer service was exceptional as always here. Complementary range balls on an all grass range is always a plus. Cart person around numerous times. Excellent GPS on the carts. Very nice course in overall excellent condition. Highly recommended.

Nice layout

Nice course overall. Very well kept except for bunkers. Seems most people didn’t rake even though one was provided on the cart. Greens are a bit on slow side as well. Good experience and will definitely go back, post COVID.

Great course

Inadequate Marshaling. Waited too long for 5 holes in the heat. Came off the course at 2 pm and nobody was around and clubhouse closed.
Disappointing.
