It appears ownership is pushing this course to closure. Hot Deal and a promo code made this round $5.49, which was exactly the value. Tim in the pro shop is a very nice guy.

course maintainence is terrible. No cleanup of bush and tree trimmings along side fairways. Traps are full of weeds and little sand. It's no wonder there is little play on the course. Only positive is fast pace of play with so few plalyers. Also, greens were in reasonable good shape.

The club house and layout suggest this was a great place at one time, but nothing has been maintained. All the staff members were very friendly, but the course conditions are pretty bad.

Mesquite is a course on the brink of sliding into oblivion. The fairways and greens were well watered, mowed and kept. Many tee boxes were not level. There was a vast amount of downed trees and vegetation that needed removal so visually it was bad.

The ponds/water features were dry and the bridges crossing the rivers/streams while safe, were noisy and in need of repair. It's simply a golf course that has had too much deferred maintenance

The staff were pleasant and made the difference. They need ownership to step up and re-invest in the course itself. Overall 3 stars with a good layout and maintenance issues

Anyone who says this course is the worst they have seen it obviously hasn't played there in several years. The course is, in fact, in the best shape it has been for the last three or four albeit not perfect. However, the greens are in great shape (they are a little slow) and so are the fairways. What more can you want. Pace of play is normally very good but no matter where you play, or what you pay, if you get behind a slow foursome it's frustrating. Yes, the bridges are in bad shape - just drive carefully over them. Correct, the clubhouse is not open right now and it helps to know that before you arrive at the course. The golf shop has a cooler with drinks, snacks, beer and wine. Most of the staff couldn't be nicer. The cart staff really try and are very helpful. I got a hot deal so value for money was excellent but if you pay the posted rate then it may not be considered so but in my opinion all of the courses in Palm Springs are too expensive for me, as a local, at this time of year.

OK I am a local and have been playing Mesquite for years. It has been in poor shape the last 4-5 years but now the level is even lower. We had high winds two weeks ago and they still haven't cleared the debris out so losing your ball under a pile of palm frowns was another hazard to deal with. The cart bridges are in such poor shape we cringed when using them,. Pieces of the bridge straps were lying on top of the bridge! It was a cartoon moment but no really funny. The greens and fairways were in decent shape but this is April and after May they turn down the water and it's like playing on concrete. This place must be a huge tax write off for somebody because there is no way they are making money and it shows. If you want to play it do it soon. It will be closed like many other courses here victim of the change in the popularity of golf and the need for more development space for condos.

Played this course many times and this has to be the worst it has ever been. Someone needs to buy it and give it some love. If I wouldn't have got a hot deal I wouldn't have played it. There are too many other great courses around the area. It's sad because our place is right on Mesquite so it's convenient but not worth paying anything to play it.

When I arrived at the course, my initial impression should have told me to leave. But, since I paid in advance I opted to sign in and play. The guy behind the desk in the pro shop couldn't have been less inviting. He let me know that the course was in receivership and in poor condition. The restaurant and snack shop were closed indefinitely and the course was not maintained. The ponds on the course were either totally dirt brown or emerald green algae. I'm sure the ducks that were paddling around in these nasty ponds would eventually get sick. The golf cart bridges were in terrible disrepair and dangerous. It's only a matter of time before someone gets hurt. The only funny experience was the 2 women they wanted to pair me up with came with a service dog. This was the first time in 45 years of playing golf that I saw a dog caddie riding in a golf cart.

If you are visiting Palm Springs and have an opportunity to play golf, do yourself a favor and skip this course. They over charge for what you get. Poor course layout, maintenance, management, golf carts, (dirt) cart paths, and they actually told me they had a 90 degree rule. All I can do is look back and laugh. Maybe a real golf course company will buy this place and restore it.

Don't waste your time and money.

The condition of the course has certainly improved over the last two years. The fairways and greens are in good condition. Although slow, the greens roll true and are well-maintained. The bunkers could use some work. It is a good value for what you get. There were tee times available, a reasonable price, and a friendly staff. I hope this trend continues, as it is a classic old Palm Springs golf course. The clubhouse needs to be re-invigorated. I will come back.

Course has been known to be very dry, but winter rains have helped to improve it. Bunkers are fair and full. Greens designed small but stoppable shots in. Long par 3s from blues. All over 160, good challenge.

The staff was very friendly, a Sloth moves faster than the golfers. The condition of the course was that of a mideocure public course. Wear a construction helmet when playing the holes are so closely related balls are coming from all over the course.
