Great layout - awful conditions

Sparse grass on the fairways, bumpy greens that don’t roll smooth, and no sand in the bunkers. Might be one of the best layouts in the area but would not recommend to anyone who likes good Golf to play there.

Course condition

Fairways were in awful condition with virtually no grass.
Traps were inconsistent and mostly low in sand. Greens also were not in very good condition.
Played here other years and conditions were good but definitely not this year

Marriott course Palm springs

The Marriott Palm Springs resort features 2 18-hole courses, Palm and Valley. I played the valley course. The condition overall was quite good. The layout is interesting and attractive. There are plenty of challenges but overall this is not a terribly hard course. I would play here again. The Palm is the difficult of the 2 courses and quite a bit more expensive. The Marriott resort is massive and world class. Multiple restaurants, huge hotel, many pools, etc. Top notch!

Slow pace of play and conditions not great

The pace of play was slow. Conditions were worse than others in the area. Lots of browned out areas on the fairway and the worst was no real sand in many of the green side bunkers making it almost impossible to hit out of the high walls. I was excited to play before the round but disappointed after. The price was too high for the overall experience.

Could use some TLC

I have played this course two years in a row now. The bunkers need sand and the greens are slow.

Not A Bad Day But It Could Have Been Better

Unfortunately the foursome ahead of us was slow and there wasn’t a marshal to speed them along.
This put a damper on an otherwise nice day.

Marriott Desert Springs Valley Course

Everything was good except the conditions were not nearly as good as the other four locations we played in the area. Also there was nobody in the bag drop area when we arrived. Not a major issue for me but some others kept waiting and they didn’t appear during the wait

Valley course in poor condition

Fairways, greens, bunkers all in poor condition. Not up to our expectations of a Marriott property.
