Beautiful, Amazing, it’s a must

Haven’t been here in several years. Still as beautiful and amazing course. This is a must hit course, greens were Immaculate and firm, putting on glass. Didn’t see one bump or hop on any roll of the ball on any green!! Thank to the staff for a great day on the course!!

Not the Best

Was disappointed in the condition of the course. Others we played the same week were green and lush. The Classic had a lot of dry/brown areas. Fairways were absent of grass or they were tight. Play was slow. We were a twosome so tried to be understanding. I chose to walk in between some shots given that we had to wait on every shot, every hole. The marshal told me I shouldn't walk because they were so busy and I would hole up play. I informed him that we were waiting on every shot and that I wasn't holding up play. Probably won't go back when I am in town again.

Great desert course...

Great service and layout. Course was not as green and lush as normal. For the price it fairway could be a little greener and not as patchy.

Great experience

This was my 2nd time playing this course. I really loved it the first time! The 2nd time solidified my opinion! The conditions were even better this time. The greens were very consistent and the place is just beautiful. The staff is wonderful and I was not disappointed one bit. I brought three new friends to this course and they all loved it. it’s not an easy course but the surroundings are beautiful and you don’t even know that you are in the desert. A great golf oh ASIS. And the free towel and lunch voucher or an added bonus!

Best Public Course in the Area

Me and a few buddies who are 90-100 players, tried this course out. First of all, the staff couldnt be more friendly, the golf carts are super nice, they gave us each $15 credit for food, free golf towel with course logo, and they put your clubs in the cart for you and will leave them at the front if you want to go eat after. I liked this place more than PGA West and Silver Rock.

Favorite public course in the area!

This place is amazing! I’ve played a good majority of the public courses in the area and this one is by far my favorite. The second you walk out of the club house you’re memorized by views. I literally forgot I was in Palm Springs the whole round. There’s not a single house in sight and every bit of the course is well maintained. The course is not easy, but as long as you play smart you’ll be fine. The views you get on every hole is amazing! Let’s not forget that the fairways and greens are pure. This course will definitely be on my agenda every time I visit Palm Springs!

Excellent layout, Service second to none, staff friendliness top notch. Course conditions superlative. Only problem and not an inconvenience to players by the way, is that the beverage carts don’t have the ability to charge credit cards at their carts. They have to take the cards back to the club house. Which takes away from their ability to serve the on course patrons. Otherwise fantastic facility.

I love this course. I have played it several times now and it is always in great condition. There are many interesting and challenging holes.The staff is very pleasant and professionally. Excellent food in the restaurant. I would not hesitate to play it again. Not a single house on the course. Very nice views. One of my favorites in the area.
