tee boxes were good, fairways good, wide open, lots of dirt if you spray the ball, and don;t stay on the fairway, bunkers could be softer, but if you test them before hitting the ball, you should be able to adapt to the condition, greens are good. paired up with two real, real nice younger guys, made the day real enjoyable, hope to see them again.

Course has excellent practice facility, club house and pro shop. Beverage cart was also excellent, along with the tee boxes, fairways and the greens. Had a great day. Some hole have some hidden desert area that intrude the fairway make sure you look at the hole design at the tee box.

Had a great round in perfect weather. The course was in great shape and the greens were good. The pace of play was very good, played as a twosome and only waited a short time on the last 2 holes. It was a fun round on a great course.

The staff member was friendly and polite when I checked in. My only issue with this course is the extremely poor pace of play. This is why golf is declining. Poor pace of play KILLS a round.

Apparently, there was few groups who teed off earlier in the day than me took over 3 hours to complete the front 9. If there had been a ranger there this would not have happened. After the 3rd hole I waited on every hole. At the 6th hole there was 3 groups waiting ahead of me on the tee box. It took nearly an hour to get to the 8th hole. At the 10th hole there was three groups ahead of me again and groups beginning to pile up behind me. This is where other groups started bailing out. One went back to play the front 9 again. A handicapped group who knew the course well jumped to the 16th hole because they couldn't wait any longer and one group left.

I think the pro shop sent someone out and had us play through the slow players as they had been warned earlier. So we rushed through three - four holes to get through these guys. The waiting and rushing through totally ruined my round. I could not enjoy this course at all. It looks like a very nice course, but I can't in good conscience recommend it due to the lack of a ranger and absolute dead pace of play. I gave 3 stars BECAUSE the staff was friendly on arrival and they did try to get us through after complaints were made to the pro shop. Otherwise I would have given one star.

Palm Valley is nestled in the beautiful area of Litchfield Park and is as nice as advertised. The course is challenging enough for the advanced golfer and open enough for the beginner. The course was in great shape and the pace of play was about average for this time of year. The pro shop staff was very accommodating and very friendly. I will definitely be back and encourage you to give it a try!
