Played the Blues (6642/72.3/133) with Sixpez, Roarksown1 and Mattias in 4.5H twilight. Fun group to play with!. The weather was around 100, slight breeze and overcast.

The course was in good late summer shape. Tougher than average layout, up/down hills and the large greens complexes are challenging. Celebrity has a unique way of getting to a par 72. Fourteen par 4's with only two par 5's and two par 3's, seems weird to play seven par 4's on each side. Normally, that would be a detriment, but the par 4's here all have a different feel/look, good mixture of longer and risk/reward holes to keep things fun and interesting. This course would be a beast to walk as numerous holes are a ways from the last green.

The Bermuda tees were mostly lush with most divots already properly repaired. No challenges getting level lies.

The Bermuda fairways were mostly lush and provided good lies.

The Bermuda rough was mostly lush and not overly penal.

The sand traps were in good shape overall. Decently maintained with nice fine sand.

The Bermuda greens were disappointing. Medium slow, somewhat bumpy and firm with few ball marks.

The customer service was exceptional. I have never played a course that has any better customer service than IW. Very nice layout in good, but not great late summer condition. Highly recommended.

This one of two courses is more suited to those with no need to challenge distance (if you are then back tees or other course is for you) Playing middle/foreward tees was right for 15 handicap. What is neat is almost every hole is different. There are 3 or 4 holes that maybe considered hard but for the most part just follow the fairway and course is very playable. For avarage golfer this could be considered a upscale course and well worth the price. If possibel try playing in off season (such as summer) a little more time to enjoy the course.

I played this track the day after I played the PGA West Stadium Course (awesome) and it was a total change of pace. This course isn't too challenging and is very forgiving. I particularly loved the driveable par-4 12th hole.

This scenery around this course is amazing. With the mountains, palm trees, and on-course water, make sure to bring your camera!

The staff here was very nice. Everyone was helpful, and we saw the cart-guy plenty of times. They even handed us ice cold towels (watermelon scented!).

For anyone who is looking to enjoy the beautiful backdrops of Palm Springs and make your way around a golf course with ease, this is your place!

Course is in great condition for summer season. Greens are a little "crusty" but still roll very true. Some of the tee boxes from the Cabernet tees need a little trim but nothing terrible.

The course has a great layout and appealing to the eye with water features and mountain backdrop.

Little confusion with the starter and played behind 2 twosomes but he was very friendly and laid out some of the features of the course which is nice.

Guys in pro shop were also very friendly and helpful.

Great day! Would love to play again next time in Palm Desert

This is one is one of the best courses I've ever played!!. Wonderful design, not too long (I've played form yellow) so it's perfect for holiday golf. The fairways, greens, service on and off the course are outstanding.

The layout is very intersting and just beautiful with the mountains. 10/10

I would have to rate this one of the tops I have played in the valley. The fairways were immaculate always giving you a great lie. There was lots of flowers and weil manicured shrubbery. Lots of great views and a challenging course with tee boxs and length suited to your skill level. We were teamed with another couple who kept the pace so we were done in under four hours. Staff were friendly and came and filled your drinks with more ice. Greens were true, held well and were in great condition.
