Dried Out

The fairways were dried out & needed some attention. Greens were good. Bathrooms needed some attention as well.

The grass was dead on the valley course

Not worth what I paid, hard to hit it off the fairways. Grass was thin and dead. No marshal, very slow.

Rolling hills, seldom a flat lie.

This resort is spectacular! The course is beautiful but the rolling fairways are extremely challenging. Played 14 rounds of golf in the past three weeks and scored 6 strokes higher on this course. For the price I would prefer to play somewhere where I am having more fun.

Love this course

This is a great course that we always try to play when in the PS area. It's a bit pricey, but other than that it's pretty much a perfect course. Staff was friendly, course was in great shape (as usual) and the pace of play was just fine, considering it was cart path only that day.

Sumptuous landscaping, beautiful layout but fairway conditions not at par with asking price.

Would never play here again. Cart and bags got soaked by sprinkler when parked at driving range. Starter never said a single word to us at beginning of round. Pace of play was terrible -- about 5 hours! Course was so compressed that on MANY occasions balls got hit into us from other fairways -- apparently nobody knows that you yell "Fore" in that case.

disappointing

we had this place in very good memories from ealier times, however this time it was disapointing. Fairways condition mediocre. Greens very slow and mediocre condution; pace of play slow. Further, I might be old fashioned, but there was loud techno sound and a cloud of canabis from an other tee coming to our fairway, this was disturbing for all pkayers in our flight! Furthermore, guests lockerroom needs maintenance and clean up. W played this week public courses in the same area for half the money and at better conditions!

Overpriced

The course cost is overpriced.
And the driving range was not open. Just not acceptable for such cost.

Course was great but greens were slow

Greens were slow due to seasonal maintenance. Seems the greens fees might have remained the same despite the greens. I wish golf courses would discount when they do maintenance or don’t open the course till it reflects the planned experience.
