Nice course -

The good:
- nice course
- good conditions
- friendly staff
- quick pace

The bad:
- We had the first tee time and 3 of the first 4 holes were directly into the sun. I think architects should take direction into account and not start headed east nor finish heading west, just to avoid the blinding sun for the early starters and later finishers.
- There are 3 or 4 holes with hazards that are not visible from where i was hitting the ball, so pay close attention to the GPS.
- Finally, to me it is way overpriced. If your an Indian wells resident you get a break, but, as a visitor, for a early fall tee time i felt it was more expensive than warranted.

Pace of play horrible

Played at 7:50am. Waited on every shot from our approach on the first hole to the approach on 18. Called pro shop twice and they said they’d send someone….no Marshall ever sent. Easy fix as there was a 4some 3 groups in front with easily 5-6 hole gap in front of them. Ruined the experience for everyone around us.

Players

Rode the Orange Tees (6538/71.6/130) with Wendy, Lauren and Marvin in slightly less than 5H mid morning in the GK Plays. Close to 110, clear and fairly calm. Not humid like it has been, so it was more managemable than it sounds with plenty of liquids. Thanks to Johnny for setting this up, Linksoule and Golf Moose as sponsoring many nice items and IW for having us out!

Really like this John Fought design that features 7 sets of well spaced tees. Par 72 (37-35). The course is a good mixture of flat and rolling hills. Challenging layout featuring many holes with fairways that are either narrow in the landing area or require turning the ball to get in prime positions.

Tees were lush and nicely maintained with few divots.

Fairways were lush and very nice to play from.

Rough close to greens, just off fairways and around tees is mowed down, not overly penal and lush. Bermuda rough farther off fairways has good coverage but is not what I would call lush.

Sand traps were well maintained with fine sand.

Bermuda greens were smooth and putted medium fast speed. Firm with few ball marks. Large challenging green complexes, the greens feature many subtle undulations with few straight putts.

The course conditions were excellent overall. I appreciate this layout more with each round played here. It would be challenging to walk since there are numerous tees 100+ yards from the last green. Customer service is always excellent here. And that goes for every single person encountered, they could run a climic on how to provide excellent customer service @ IW. Plenty of ice/water stations on the course. Nice GPS on the carts. Cart person came around numerous times. Complementary range balls on an all grass range is a plus. Highly recommended.

Great Course and Great Value

Played at 6:51 on a Thursday morning as a single and was paired up with another. Pace of play was a tad slow with two foursomes in front but finished in 4:25. Course in good shape but greens a little bumpy from being punched three weeks ago.

Water stations with filtered ice and water every three holes, but one was out of service.

Will paly again when out in the desert.

Good Summer Conditions

This course is in good condition for the summer. The greens were a little slower as they can not be cut low in the extreme heat. The pace was a little slow however the course ambassador's were around quite often and there is ice and water stations every 3 holes.
We persuaded them to give us towels which are necessary for cooling down, a great benefit.
Only complaint i had was the beer cart was promoting a local beer which i tried but could not finish it and had to pour it out.

A beautiful course

Amazing layout and fairways. Greens were difficult due to recent heats so very bumpy with dry patches and hard to play. Pace was moderate but the Marshall was on the slow groups. I will definitely be back.

Bunkers, bunkers, bunkers

Tough course. Bunkers protecting every green and a lot of pitched fairways make this a very challenging course. You really need to think about every shot.

Didn't live up to expectations

Taking into account I played on the hottest day on record and in the afternoon, the course was in ok condition. Heard this was a course not to miss playing while in Palm Springs, I was disappointed. No water anywhere, no cart service, but staff was friendly. Would like to play in when it is better condition because back nine had a fun layout

Fantastic Experience

What a great course. Very challenging but beautiful. The course was pristine despite the high heat. I am from Phoenix which has a similar climate but I have never seen a course in Phoenix that lush in June. Staff was very friendly and helpful, especially the starter. I'll be back, next time in the winter though.

Golfing Experience

My son and I throughly enjoyed our golf round this morning at Indian Hills. The course was in optimal condition. Just absolutely beautiful layout and features. We will include this course on our regular golfing rotation of courses. We look forward to playing it again.
