$$$$

Course was not in good condition.
Very slow greens, bumpy, basically 2 putts and pick up your ball.
Fairways one nine grass was patchy, seconds nine fairways were Oka but cart path only. 1 hole was completely closed.
There are some very pretty holes around the restaurant but greens were very slow.
There is much better value out there for the money they are asking.in the valley.
Courses are out pricing themselves and this is one of them with the condition of the course.
Could be a great layout, maybe just the time of year ????

It was fine ... but

Played the South/West (35/35 - par 70) with the West #2 being out of play due to accidental flooding. The North 9 was going through overseeding. The West 9 just came out and was cart path only - it was in very good condition but the greens were very furry. The South 9 wasn't in great shape. I'm guessing it's going into overfeeding next and they had reduced maintenance on it. It's an old school course (built in 1977). Lots of houses on both sides of most fairways - in fairly close proximity. There are also a number of trees that come into play. Fairways are generally generous and the greens are small. Greens were bumpy and/or slow. Bunkers were in good shape. Water is in play on a few holes. There was no on course food or beverage service. Overall, it was fine for the price (comparatively) - they knocked a few bucks off the fees given the conditions and didn't charge for the range, which was appreciated. The staff were all very pleasant. Would I return? Not any time soon - there are others to try in that price range - but it was fine.

Playable but…

I played south and north. The south was cart paths only and kind of a pain. Other side really thrashed fairways and greens. Some
Confusing jokes about where to go, like after t shot on 9 you see two greens and have to keep checking gps to make sure right one.

There are a number of really cool
Holes with water. It’s somewhat disappointing for the $$$, 109, because it could be so much better.

Lack of disclosure

No carts allowed on the course, which was not disclosed when I booked the tee time, as course was under repair. Hole 2 on West course was closed, again not disclosed. Holes 1-3 should all have been closed due to the poor conditions. Very disappointed with the course conditions and the lack of disclosure of the same. Btw no discount was offered.

Not as advertised

Fun layout, nice staff, terrible course conditions. Totally overwatered and muddy. Greens horrific and slow, I’ve seen second cuts at real country clubs shorter than the greens. Can’t believe this is a country club in the desert. $40 a round public course quality..

Disorganized, terrible start, poor conditions

Booked early twilight, looked forward to an upper middle level course. Wrong gate directions on Golf Now, almost late. Starting area was a zoo, little help. 1st 3 holes in the floodway, one unplayable, two sloppy. The rest was in rough shape, mostly furry greens, old course.
Fast pace at least, but paid for a mid-top course and got this. Live and learn, I guess the name is a draw. Cool looking resort, but play elsewhere

Waste of Money

Awful, awful, awful. I was stunned that the first nine was even open for play considering it’s overall terrible condition. Second nine was quite a bit better but still in the early stages of playable
The fact that they are charging what they are charging for this course is crazy. I’ve played several courses in the area this trip and this was BY FAR the worst value for $.

AVOID

Played the North South combo on Nov 23, 2022. South was an interesting enough layout but had recently been reseeded and was very patchy on fairways. It was cart path only which made sense given its transitory condition. Ok experience on the South.
North 9 was AWFUL in every way imaginable. Layout seemed odd in that you played up and down the same inclines a few times. That might have been ok but the condition was a joke. The fact that it was open and calling itself a golf course should be an embarrassment to everyone associated with the course. Be better to take your clubs into a random patch of desert (be sure to add some muddy patches) and hit the ball then putt on whatever bumpy and pockmarked surface happens to be around.
We had played this course a few years ago and recall a decent experience. This was by FAR the worst value for golf dollar I have ever had. The weather was pleasant, the pace of play was good (probably because we saw people dropping out) and we both shot ok. It was the course condition and price that made this feel like the biggest ripoff I have ever experienced. Avoid at least the North 9 at all costs

Course teview

Would not go there again, left the pro shop and could find any staff to assist me. Not good customer service. I was told the day I played that I could not drive on the course . I am 88 years old. Just finished nine and now i had to walk to and from my cart to ball carrying several clubs. If i had known earlier, i would’ve not played,

Poor overall course conditions

Wasted day playing South/North courses. Apparently their over seeding didn’t take so course was under repair trying to improve it. Horrible greens as well. Cart path only on North which we didn’t know until arrival. Won’t play here again for a while.

poor condition

North course was in terrible shape. South had been seeded but was cart path - contributed to already slow pace of play. No marshalls, no water, no beverage cart. Played many courses in Palm springs and this is the worst value for the $ by far.
