I had heard great things about the course, and I wasn't disappointed. The course is in good shape for summer, though some of the fairways were soaked to the point of having mud balls in 100 degree weather. I wouldn't want any part of this course from the tips, especially on a windy day. I played the white tees and it was fun. I had trouble with the speed of the greens, but I'm not used to Bermuda greens. I don't think it's my favorite course in the desert, but it's a good one.

Based on all the reviews that I've read on this course, I must say it has been on the top of my list of courses to play here in the Valley and it didn't disappoint. A great facility, layout, and course conditions (even though they had just versi-cut and dusted the greens). I received a great rate on GOLFNOW and the course provided a free towel and $15 Food/Beverage credit on top of that! Highly recommeded/Must play!

I had wanted to play the course for sometime and finally did. Why did I wait so long? A wonderful facility with extraordinary staff. From the moment I dropped my bag I was treated like a member for a day. I actually told the pro my own club could learn from their customer service. The course was in very good shape despite the heat. The fairways were plush and the greens ran true with good speed. They had bottomless ice cold bottle water which was needed and appreciated. The beverage cart and Grill were both very good with excellent employees. All in all a great day. I will go back and I highly recommend the Club to others.

Disappointing to know that I booked on line and picked a time that for whatever reason did not include the food voucher. Same price for other time times in this time slot. For example, 8 minutes later or earlier this would be included. So not only paid Golf Now a booking fee but ended up not getting what was promoted on the site! Second time that your site has been misleading during our vacation. Lots of choice both directly at courses and on other similar golf sites. Definitely will be looking elsewhere in the future!!

First 9 was really slow. Was raining most the time so that didn't help. But after 10 holes the groups in front packed it in and we ripped out for the rest of the holes. It's a beautiful course and would wanna play it again on a sunny day.

The course was very playable. The pace was great we finished in 3h10m
And enjoyed every minute. Just wish they would have lowered the temperature a bit it was 107. But we had a great time. There was plenty of ice and water around the course to keep you refreshed. The staff was great very knowledgeable and friendly. I would play there in a heart beat.

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.
