The Dye course was in excellent condition. The greens were a little slow but putted true. The layout is a little more generous than a typical Dye course and very playable. The staff from the parking lot pickup, to the proshop, to the marshal, who gave us his cellphone #, were exceptionally friendly. With a bit of a deal from golfnow it was a good value. Definately will play here again.

I played with a wonderful threesome from another country. We had a great time on a beautiful course. The only problem was we all had a hard time adjusting to very slow greens. After the round I was invited to a cocktail afterwards and I accepted. All in all a great time.

Not difficult if you keep it on short grass. Lots of bunkers (which are not in great shape). Greens fairly slow with subtle breaks. Fun to play.

the Layout of the course was more than I had expected from the web site. I started to see I was in for a treat from the cart drive towards the practice area .

Fairways and greens where fantastic, putting speed was maybe 9 or10 z the issues I noticed where some dead spots on the approaches and collars, which I needed up being on more than once.

Maybe it’s because the greens where punched recently, didn’t really change the roll of the ball much.

Bang for your buck , absolutely !

Very nice Pete Dye Course. Well maintained and a test for shot making . Greens fast and fair, just don’t find yourself above the hole putting downhill.You will score well if your ball is in the fairway as you approach the putting green. Play less break than you think you need.

Nice resort course with interesting water features. The sand in the bunkers is brutal, like hitting off tarmac. For the GolfNow price, we’ll worth playing.

Troon normally does a great job managing a golf course, however, as if the pace of play was not slow enough (almost 5 hours) three people were standing in the 14th fairway casting fishing lines into the pond. Apparently this has been promoted by Westin Mission Hills. What could go wrong?

Commented on 12/01/2017

The green were sanded while we were playing. The cups on several greens were convex, most likely due to careless maintainable. This made putting unreliable. The sand traps were lumpy and smooth as a result of water seeping down. More like dirt than sand. Most higher handicappers will not even notice these issues. I have a low hdgp and it makes a difference in my scoring ability.


"Great course!"

This was our first time playing at the Westin Mission Hills course. The staff are friendly and were very helpful. Despite the cart path only, the pace of play was quick and we rarely had to wait. I would definitely recommend this course and plan to come back on our next trip.

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.
