Faldo got it right

Course was in excellent shape.....greens fairly fast and very true.
Staff is always first rate.
Gold Tees (6200 yds) very playable for older players, but tips require thought AND length.
Did not have time to check out the grill, etc.
Well worth the $120 on Golf Now, since the Desert is very crowded right now..

Wonderful experience. Course was in great shape, though the greens were slow due to overseeding. Should be back to normal in a week or so. Cart path only made for a long round.

Re-opening after overseeding

We played the first day the course was open after annual overseeding. Overall, it was lush and beautiful. Hopefully, the fairways and greens will be cut a bit shorter in the next few days. While the course played "slow"; overall, it was immaculate. I would hope to play it again, the next time I am in the Coachella Valley area.

Avoid

I thought I was playing on a building site, course in poor condition, all green side bunkers unplayable with no sand and the surrounds recently returned, staff did not make us aware of the poor presentation prior to our round. This is the worst course I have played in the Palm Springs area on multiple visits.

Not a single complaint. Great pace, friendly staff and beautifully maintained course. If deciding to try some courses in the area then this should be at the top of the list. Right now stay away from Jack Nicklaus Tournament course. poor conditions.
