Everything was great except that when we got there there, it was "cart path only", no exceptions. They asked if it noted that on GolfNow and I told them "NO". I did note that AFTER receiving my confirmation and AFTER I paid that the receipt noted to check course for conditions. We had a member of our party that still played but it was quite difficult and he had to pick up numerous times. It would have been nice to know this ahead of time.

Great layout, course knowledge a plus on some holes. They put in a lot of effort on condition. Range is perfect, putting, chipping, sand everything you need to warm up.

They are working on the course right now and only the first 9 holes are open - which you play twice. Because of that it cost less than $30 and that is a bargain. It is a tough course and is not for the faint hearted. I find it a real challenge and it gets the better of men each time but it is still a great course.

Try it. It will be re-opened as an 18 hole course on the 4th November

Very nice course, only the front 9 we're open so we played it twice. Excellent greens.

I was very unimpressed with the host / gusest service person at the cart loading area. When we arrived we told him we were in the area playing several different courses. When we mentioned one of them, he proceeded to make some very rude and unprofessional comments about the course, which we had told him how much we had enjoyed it.

I think we'll stick to course that act in a positive, professional manner in the future.

Overall this is a great course. One BIG problem. We had no idea that the back nine was closed! As a matter of fact, the starter told us it had been closed since MAY for irrigation canal work. We played the front twice; first time from the WHITE and the second time from the BLUE/WHITE combo just to shake things up a bit. OH, and they were working on all the bunkers and native areas too...

As a La Quinta resident, I have played Silverrock many times. Despite the ongoing construction to move the aqueduct, the course is still in wonderful condition and a treat for the senses. Of course, with only nine holes open, one must play those nine holes twice to get in a full round. But we had fun trying to outdo our front nine on the back nine.
The big beef I have with the course is that it is classic "target golf". Almost every hole is fronted by bunkers or water. On many holes, one can not play a Scottish-type "run-up" shot to get on the green. That's probably because the course was designed for play by the pros, but since they don't play here any more thought might be given to a redesign to lighten up on the level of difficulty.
We (senior golfers) compensated by playing from the green tees, which are forward of the white tees. This made a very significant difference in the level of difficulty, and in our enjoyment of the course. If, like us, you are not comfortable with 170-yard (or longer) carries over water or acres of sand, give those tees, or even the red tees, a try. The course doesn't know you're moving up, and no one else really cares either!

This is a great little course. Unfortunately at the time we played they only had nine holes open so we had to play the front nine twice. Being on VACATION from Las Vegas we will have to wait until our next visit. If you play it forward, you will enjoy your self more. The roughs are fair; the water hazards are tricky but playable if you play to your strengths. the green are in great shape and pretty easy to read, just get the speed right. The greenside bunkers are deep the sand is compacted. We were visited on one T-box with a herd of big horn sheep....enjoy

I enjoyed the course but would like to have played 18 holes. The back 9 was being worked on and we could have played the front 9 twice but it was hot and the pace was not good so we stopped after 9. We did get to see some Big Horn sheep and that was fun.

For this time of the year the course was in beautiful shape. The views were stunning against the hills as was the sight of the Bighorn sheep wondering the greens and fairways. A very playable course for the average golfer that does though make you pay for a not so good shot. Will definitely play this course again and again
