A very nice facility from drive up to finish. Staff was nice and helpful , carts are outstanding , and the food was very good. foursome played in about 4 hours on a beautiful course that challenged in many ways. Some dry or dead spots but new sod was being installed. and did not affect play at all. A great value for the price

This course was beautiful but unfortunately it is located in a wind tunnel. Since it is just north of the I-10 freeway next to Thousand Palms, the wind can really blow and it did that morning. Many of the trees lean to the East since the hard winds come out of the West and this is a tale tale sign that you get a lot of wind plus the wind turbine farm is located about 5 miles due west of the course. We complained about the winds and their location (wind tunnel) the staffer tried to say it always blows in the desert. Well not if you head to the south in the Coachella Valley. We went to Indian Springs later that day and played another 18 holes and virtually no wind.

Required you to be a shot maker with good course management. Great rewards for risk takers but you pay for a poorly played shot. Greens are quick and chipping requires the deft touch. Be wary of sucker pins. Wind adds another exciting challenge. Better to play it long then be short.

We arrived early for our round, and were allowed to tee off when ready. Course was sin great condition. Beautifully manicured fairways and greens. Pace of play was just over 3 hours.
Only work needed was in traps. There was t enough sand. Holes were challenging and beautiful. Thanks for a great day.

Liked the course. Well layed out with bunkers guarding greens and water to consider on some holes. Made you think. Good practice area. Did not like the greens. Like putting on packed dirt. No easy reading of the speed or break. Played another course the following day that had grass on the greens, much more fun.

Played it the same day as US Open qualifiers. Greens were fast and true. Love the design. I'll be a returning customer as well!

A very nice and challenging track in wonderful shape overall. Greens were firm and held if you hit the right spots, but punished you (as did some fairways) if you ventured to close to slopes leading to the many water hazards (which were quite attractive, BTW). Bunkers were a bit packed and pin placements had a few compound breaks. I would certainly want to play the course again, especially when the winds were less than the 20 MPH we faced. Had lunch at the club's Bellatrix restaurant terrace twice during the week and enjoyed the staff, meals and views. Go there!

I always enjoy this course and was not disappointed this time. Had a 11:10 tee time as a twosome and were paired up with another twosome. Had a great day and a round at about 4.25 hours. The course was not in as pristine condition as I had remembered it from a couple of years ago, but this was later in the season which has been very warm. Love this place.
