LIV'ing the Dream

Highly enjoyable course, one of my favourites at PGA West. Considering the extremely hot weather in late June the course was in very good shape and the greens were superb. Some tough bunkers especially on the back nine. Some nice variety throughout the course. Definitely worth playing and good value.

Good round at PGA Wesr

The “new” Norman course was in great shape. Tee boxes perfect and fairways even greener. Greens were a little hard was which the one downer because the ball bounce off and didn’t hold. With the new remodel done last year there are less bunkers but the course is still a challenge. Highly recommend this course for a fun challenging round.

Great player Assistant / starter Alan

Played the course on a hot June afternoon as a single. Starter named Alan gave me the low down on all the changes to the course since last time I played Norman course (very helpful). Followed a single who went out 10 minutes before me. I ran into a slowdown on the 5th hole where there was four foursomes of friends playing. Alan anticipated this slowdown and waiting on the 5th hole and escorted the single ahead of me and then me to the 9th hole where there was no one in front of us. Check on my status numerous times and supplied ice cold water bottles thorough the round. Was waiting for me at the 18th green when i arrived, and escorted me back the 5th hole. Was able to play 5 - 9 in no time at all. My entire round took about 3hrs and Alan saved me at least 1.5 hours of waiting on the course. Easily, one of the best players assistants I have ever had on any course. PGA West should give him a raise!!!
Course was in great shape and extremely changeling and enjoyable!

A great round ruined by slow play

An "un-named" Golf Magazine that preaches how to play fast golf was hosting a tournament which played at a 5:17 pace. Otherwise an excellent place to play

it's getting better

The Norman course is always tough. They rebuilt greens, and it's made the course more scoreable. Prior, the difficulty of the layout, along with nearly impossible greens, was not fun. The course was in good condition. When the greens mature, it may be a better track. Time will tell. Staff was fine.
