Very Playable and Fun Course

This was the first time we have played this course as part of a couples trip we do each year around late January, early February. Each individual voted to add the Greg Norman course into the rotation for next year as well. The course was in pristine conditions. As per most of the name courses, there are numerous fairway and greenside bunkers, but that is offset with wide fairways and generous landing areas. Very playable for the mid to high handicaps. We paid $89 green fees through Golfnow. This course is worth every penny.

Definitely worth the money

Played four times while out in the Palm Springs area and PGA West Greg Norman course was the best. The fairways were green and the greens were in outstanding shape for the time of the year. We found the layout to be challenging and fun. The pro shop staff were very friendly and the starter, Coop, was extremely helpful, taking the time to explain the course for us first-timers. Definitely put this course on the list to play again.

New Greens and Bunkers

We played this course for the first time in over a year. They cleaned up a lot of the brush and put new sand in the bunkers and redid the greens. Sand in the bunkers is some of the best I've played from in a while. New greens however were well, new greens. Very hard but they did hold better than I anticipated. Biggest issue I had was the roll. Not complaining, they are what they are, new greens. Overall, if you've played this course before, you might not noticed a lot of difference in the layout, just easier to get around and less overgrown. Overall, very nice course.

Good course

New greens. Probably the most playable of all 5 of the public PGA West courses. Nice layout. Not overwhelming. Ponds have 1lb bass cruising around. Bring fishing pole. Staff is super friendly. I guess this is the least popular course since it’s all by itself, but this is the course I’d play daily.

Nice but slow

The course is in very good condition but the bunkers not so good. We were told they are completely redoing the course in a couple of months. Our issue was the 4 3/4 hour round and not a ranger in site. We will not play here again when there are so many other exceptional courses nearby.

Brian at the countet

I have never felt so unwelcome anywhere in my life. 10am thursday Brian acted as if we were pond scum. While out at the driving range I inquired of two other groups and on the course one other group if they had any issues checking in. All three groups , on their own, said exactly the same thing. The young girl behind the counter was nice, the starter was nice and Brian was a jerk. 5 1/2 slow play did not help. I am local and have considered moving to Greg Norman, have dined there, would consider joining, but what a turn off.

Patience is a virtue

Pace of play was horrible. 11: O clock tee time 5.5 hour round. Front desk pro shop employee was either having a bad day or he is severely misplaced in his choice of occupation, he should look into cleaning stalls at the polo grounds, that might be a good fit.
