Not a bad deal

I don’t have anything to complain about but I’ve been here twice and both times the pro shop staff acts like they will take your money but they would prefer not to have to let the public in. But they do so they might as well act like they appreciate the business.

Mix-up

Booked through Golf Now at the San Gorgonio course. When we called the course to confirm they said that Golf Now made a mistake and we were to play the other Del Webb course.. it was clearly not a mistake on Golf Nows part, but something that goes on a lot . We pressed the issue and were finally allowed to play the San Gorgonio course which was great. A beautiful course, will play it again.

Beautiful Place with Grumpy Staff

Drove out from Inland Empire to Palm Desert today to play Mountain Vista. Used the Underpar deal to play both courses with the replay, arrived 20 min before my scheduled time checked in with my first grumpy gentleman who basically scolded me for paying with the voucher, given no directions to anywhere.. first tee, really nothing.
Drove to first tee 10 min early & the 2 players I was paired with had already hit & were about to leave the tee, I scrambled quickly to get going, the round was wonderful the two young men were very nice & we all had a good time sharing stories. Post round both myself & the other two young men park our carts close to the restaurant/Pro Shop & then get scolded by the next Grumpy gentleman about where we have our carts basically telling us in a forceful manner that we needed to move. I go inside the San G Pro Shop to ask about the replay & was met with the next Grumpy Gentleman who said “You need to go to the Santa Rosa Clubhouse, we don’t do replays here” I have to say this place is absolutely beautiful, big beautiful fairways, greens are excellent & course was in top shape, I then go to Santa Rosa Clubhouse & greeted by the next Grumpy Gentleman who basically informs me that there is probably no way I can play around round they are completely booked, mind you I looked up what times were available on their own website & they had plenty. So I took the hint, I was not wanted on their course or in their community, so no replay & I left to travel back on my hour plus ride home very disappointed.

I have often used the Underpar deal here. Usually with good success. I call ahead and try to ensure that there is replay availability. But I have also experienced what you described. There ARE some seniors who work @ Mountain Vista that are less than helpful on making tee times. I go around people like that. If they are offering me replay, I paid for replay and I want to replay, some dipstick with an attitude isn't going to stop me in most cases.

Wrong Course

Sun City does not recognize San Gorgonio for Golf Now. We had to play the Santa Rosa course. They said this is a common mistake made by Golf Now.

Joke

So unorganized holy smokes. Go to one course for our tee time and they tell us that we are on another course. Go there and no tee time so starter shoots us out on hole 10 only to be ripped on by the guys behind us. No scorecard.
Course is unreal though. Great grass and greens. If you can figure out your tee times then it’s 10/10

San Gorgonio

Rode the Blacks (6669/71.9/128) 12/29 with GDR23 in 3H, 40M mid day. Seemed alot longer, we waited almost every shot on 3somes in front of us. 60's, sunny and breezy. Conditions were VERY lush, almost immaculate across the board. Tees extremely lush and well maintained with few unfixed divots. Fairways lush and very nice to play from. Rough is 2-3", lush and thick. Sand traps have high quality white marble sand and are among the best I play anywhere. Large greens are firm/smooth and putted medium fast speed. No GPS on the basic carts or ports for electronics. No driving range, you have to go 1/2 mile down the street where the sister Santa Rosa course has a nice, all grass driving range. No on course services with COVID. Very unusual that they let us drive our morning round carts from Santa Rosa 1/2 mile down surface streets to San Gorgonio. Highly recommended, best conditioned course I have played in the Palm Springs area this year.
