They had people teeing off 7 minutes apart. Of course it was backed up because a 4 hour round is 12 minutes per hole.

Everything about this course is amazing. It is the most perfectly manicured golf course I've ever played. The fairways are like carpet and the greens are true, fast, and fair. It's also got some of the most picturesque holes in the Palm Springs area. The marshalls were friendly while keeping the pace of play (4 hour round). Go out of your way to play this course.

A real treat to play in excellent condition. Play it while you can before the upcoming partial/complete closure for hotel construction. You really need to think about the consequences of your misses on many shots beforehand. A bad fairway approach angle over triple bunkers to a shallow green led to a big number for me on one hole. You need to take the conservative route to get back in position so you don't compound a mistake here. An enjoyable place to spend the day.

Played here for the first time yesterday. Coursecwas in fabulous condition. Each lie was like hitting off of carpet. Nice blend of natural desert landscape, water and golf course. I'm glad the two-some we were paired with had played here before because on a few holes we weren't sure where we were going for the best shot. Very enjoyable round in a pleasant desert layout. Sad to hear they will be chopping it up to make room for two hotels. Was hoping to see some bighorn sheep but no luck.

The course is great. They have many tees, I believe 5, so all level of golfer can pick a tee to fit their game. The course was in excellent condition. All staff were very helpful. Their GPS system was excellent. You were able to pick spots on a fairway to get the distance to that point. The only thing missing were towels on the cart to clean clubs. The cart has a ball washer, great. At our finish at about 6:30, the restaurant and bar were closed, and no refreshment cart was on the course. I definitely recommend this Course.

I always love playing SiverRock. Diverse holes with very challenging greens and lots of traps surrounding those greens. It is a shot makers course where ball placement is critical both on the fairway and on the greens.

Many challenging shots required. Very scenic. Great layout but on a few holes the pin placement was in the "unfair" category which lowered the level of fun we had. Still recommend playing it.

What a beautiful course only to find out it was overbooked and I'll managed. When you pay rates like what they want, you would expect a good round of golf at a decent pace. Not a marshal to be seen. Foursomes stacked up on one another. No best ball or golf ready. Then the beverage gal driving down the middle of a fairway after selling her stuff on the golf course. I'll play somewhere else the next time since that have no respect for ours!

Nothing but good things to say. Staff at drop off and pro shop were beyond friendly. Course was in great shape. Very challenging and long even from blue tees. Views are awesome. Since I wasn't charged full rate on my card by golfnow the pro shop gave my high school son junior rates which made this course a steal. Will play this every time we visit.
