Be careful

Played 9 and then was told I could not play the other 9 as there was a club tournament so I could play the same 9 again and then play other 9 if I want latter, Not what I paid for so be careful when booking to see if the course is actually available for play.

Indian Palms fairway grass needs water!!

Grass condition at Indian Palms is not acceptable. Need to allow grass to grow thicker before opening to the public.

Fairways were dormant Bermuda grass, hard and fast. Greens were rolling 10ish. Quality was not normal for Desert conditions, but neither was the $40 greens fees.

Fairways and greens in poor condition

I have been playing this course over the past five years. Nothing has improved. Many of the greens are in poor shape. All fairways are brown and not maintained. Areas immediately adjacent to the fairways and tee boxes appear to be not maintained. I usually play alone because none of my golfing buddies will play at this golf club due to the overall poor condition. I play it because it is low priced on golfnow.com

Slow pace and poor conditions

I'm not sure why I keep going back every few years. Call me a glutton for punishment. The greens were fried and hard (in fall!), the fairways brown and dry. Multiple muddy spots on every hole. General disrepair. Country club lets members go out in twosomes whenever, waited on every hole, was hit into from frustrated folks behind us. Do yourself a favor and spend $20 more to go to a decent course.

Rough condition

The course needs some work, grass is nonexistent in many places, bunkers in poor condition but it was playable. The greens were fast and a little bumpy but putt able. If you want premiere conditions this is not the course for you. If you want to drive the ball, hit from tight lies and practice your putting this course works. All of our golf carts worked fine and made it through 18 holes.

Do not play this course

The course was the worst golf course I have ever played.if we didn’t have our wife’s drop us off we would have left. We played the mountain 9 first there was no green grass anywhere, we played the Indian 9 next hoping it would be better but it was just as bad. I can’t believe golf now would even have this course on their website.

Definitely not worth the money. Not reseeded; no water; tee boxes are terrible

Indian Palms

Course is in early reseeded condition. Fairway turf is almost nonexistent, greens are coming but still a little rough. Overall the course has been cleaned up and there is some evidence of upkeep.

Meredith Review

In our opinion, the course was in very poor shape (Indian/Mountain); not worth the money. Perhaps after they reseed & put some money into watering, tee boxes and bunkers, it might be ok.

Course was nice and greens were good.
Staff was rude at main desk, and lunch lady was
3hrs late literally with our lunch and it was
still wrong! We ordered turkey sand and 19 holes later
a ham sandwich arrived.
Staff in pro shop were very welcoming!
