Terrible bunkers and very slow greens

This course has the worst sandtraps, very little sand, and very pack down. Greens slow and some
greens are spotty. There are pleny of sand in the desert. and free.

Another great Palm Desert Course

There are so many courses between Palm Springs and La Quinta it's hard to decide. The S at Rancho Mirage has everything you'd expect. It's got a full practice facility and more importantly the fairways and greens are in great shape. The only reason I didn't rate it a 5 was the course is completely flat. It has a good layout with plenty of water, bunkers and trees to make it interesting.

Fun at the S

Great day at the S. course is in great shape.
design is great with lots of different holes. It baffles me why other courses are so dried up and brown but the S is green and lush. Is it just as simple as water use?

Very enjoyable course. The only negative was the pace of play. At times there were three groups on one hole.
