Cart paths only makes this course difficult to play. I enjoy the course otherwise but not basically walking the course (Sr. Citizen).

I got this reservation on GolfNow and it DID NOT indicate CPO. The course argued with me that it was on the listing and basically take it or leave it. Not very accommodating.

This was a beautiful course but we were dissapointed with the pace of play, simply because it was cart path golf. Some consideration should be given to the fact that it is a lot of walking and for some people, they were not prepared to carry clubs which of course was frustrating for those of us that were ready and waiting on every hole. We didn't finish the course, and we should have been able to as we started early enough in the afternoon. Perhaps there needs to be more time in between tee times so players are not backed up on every hole.

I play a lot of golf and enjoy courses that have fun layouts unless it takes more then 5 hours to play. This course is nice but when you have to wait at each shot it becomes to much like work. This could be a great course if they had more control over the pace of play. This is around my 160th game this year and ranks in the top 2 for slow pace in play.

Challenging Pete Dye course. Very good course conditions... greens were on the slow side after over-seeding. Pace of play was excellent with cart path only. Fiendly staff. There was anise with parking because of a large conference at the Mission Hills Resort. Value on GolfNow was excellent.

Very good course layout. Course just re-opened after over-seeding. Greens were rather slow. Rough was very penal in some areas. Pace of play was slow with cart path only in effect. Friendly staff. Great value booking on GolfNow.

Pete Dyes course at the Westin Mission Hills Resort is an excellent public course that challenges every golfer of every level. There are holes that are open and more playable while a few are quite challenging and definitely require strategic ball placement. The greens were in okay shape, nothing that blew me away but it didn’t really affect our enjoyment of the day. I know it’s tough to cut down the greens and roll them effectively during the hotter months in the desert so playing in the “winter” is probably a slightly better experience. Otherwise, a great course with plenty of challenges for all skill levels!

This course is one of my favorite tracks to play. Wide fairways, some troublesome bunker placements but, not too much water. Playing from the short tees makes it family friendly. If you are a long hitter, there's plenty of ways to lose your ball.

From arrival to last putt, I thoroughly enjoyed the course. I was taken from the bag drop to the pro and then guided to the first tee. As a single player was warned of the slow pace of play and encouraged to play a couple of balls and enjoy the game, which I did. Course was in great shape and not too challenging for my 11 handicap.
