Fantastic players course

Wonderful course that will reward shot control and some smart risk taking. The course conditions were perfect and the whole facility is beautiful. Most of the Par 5s can be reached in 2 with a decent tee shot, but the course will punish you if your 2nd shot is not right on target.

Pushy Marshall

This course is average in playability for the Palm Desert area but Carrie’s a big price tag. No help with getting the bags in and out of the cars. Driving range is nice, carts with GPS good. The big challenge was that the Marshall on the third hole said we were holding up the group behind even though it was 25 mins after we teed off. The group behind frequently hit up on us while we were on the green or walking to carts. We finished nine and turned in 1 hour 5-0 minutes even though the suggested time allocation was 2 hrs 20 minutes. Some of the players in our foursome did not feel they could putt since the foursome behind kept hitting up on us. It was a very unpleasant round at the resort.

Fantastic resort and course

First class resort and wonderful course, beautiful and challenging but fair. Every hole provides superb views of the desert mountains, but you'll also experience the perfectly manicured course, along with awesome vegetation and trees.

Really good - not great

Rough was a little burned out not as plush as the neighboring celebrity course. Good pro shop. Lots of water on the course. Pace was bit slow to start and then picked up nicely. I think the group in front of us either got a nudge or picked up the pace when they saw us waiting for the first 3-4 holes.
Greens were fast maybe a 11 and true. Did not like the traps not enough sand but that may what to expect given the sometimes windy conditions.

great golf course. greens were moderate to fast and in great shape. hit the ball at your target, off line shots will get you in trouble and cost you. i found taking extra club was helpful at avoiding being short in the bunkers.
