Beautiful golf course.

Conditions were great and everything about the course itself was fantastic.

The pace of play was ridiculously slow...there is no excuse for 5 plus hour golf rounds.

Never saw a Marshall once until the 18th green so the course doesn't care...they pack every tee time anyway so they are making their money.

Just a shame they sacrifice the enjoyment of their patrons by not enforcing a pace of play policy.

We were harassed by the aggressive marshall who were out of his line to interrupted the day's play unnecessarily. I never experience such an unprofessional way which ruined beautiful Sunday. He was all over the place regardless of what the player was doing. He was even driving towa Es my husband when he was hitting!! The head pro was not receptive to our complaints and was dismissive at the best. Why should you spend so much money when you have so many choices in PS?

Thank you for the review and feedback from your round of golf on 1/29/17. We are very sorry you had a negative experience at the Rock. SilverRock is a championship style golf course that can be challenging to most golfers and we do our best to make everyone’s round of golf a great one by enforcing pace of play. Pace of play is a challenge here and in the golf industry in general; we try to push our early morning golfers so they can set the pace for the rest of the 200 plus golfers behind them. Our marshals/rangers have a difficult job but do a great job pushing play so that everyone on the course can have an enjoyable day. We hope that you will return to SilverRock in the near future.

Today, Sunday, we went out at 8:36 am for four of us in great mood. I played even on first nine holes. I didn't pay much attention to the Marshall when he first came up to us on sixth hole telling us to keep up. But we were on pace eventually playing 4 hours and 15 minutes for 18 holes. The same Marshall approached me and my friends three more times even when I was about to hit! Very rude and brushy guy with bad attitude. I lost my ball under his cart directly coming toward me. Got a triple, there!

When I complained to the manager, he had the same attitude like "That is his job to push you." Not even an apology.

Beautiful day and company and paid hefty money but bad service and staff ruin your day!! Not worth it!

Never saw a course marshal. Group ahead of us played 7600 yd. tips-far too difficult for them. Marshal should have moved them forward. We were on 10th tee box after 3 hrs. This course puts too may players on the course without maintaining a reasonable pace of play. There is far better value at other courses in the Valley.

Thank you for the review and feedback from your round of golf on 1/27/17. SilverRock is a very popular golf course and we do our best to give every golfer a great memorable experience. I’m sorry you did not see a marshal; we actually had 2 marshals working on Friday, January 27, 2017. For the day, pace of play averaged between 4 hours to 4 hours 40 minutes (slowest time). On average, we tee off groups every 8.5 to 9 minutes. Occasionally, we have slow groups but our marshals do their best to push them along. We hope that you will return to SilverRock in the near future.

I have lived here, winters only, for 5 years. Whenever I have guests I always bring them to Silverock. It is my favorite. In fact, I logged on to make a tee time for myself and an out of town guest, and saw a few bad reviews. That's nuts. That is what prompted me to write this review. I have played this course literally dozens of times and always have a pleasurable experience. It is a fabulous course. With that said, it is probably not for the new golfer, or someone who cannot maintain pace of play. I am a serious golfer, but even a weekend hacker will love this course. But if you can't keep up, then pick up.

Many places get it mostly right, Silver Rock gets it ALL right. Bag drop circle is perfect, sign-in a breeze, the driving range and putting green were solid, a very professional and cordial way to call you to the first tee, outstanding golf course throughout, and spectacular scenery. From the young men working the bag drop/cart area, to the pro shop staff, to the golf starters.........all were exceedingly professional, and at the same time genuinely friendly. The fact that this is an Arnold Palmer course makes it even better. Keep up the good work!

The course condition is great even this soon after re-opening from overseeding, fairways are full and the greens are full and running true, but a bit slow but I'm sure as they mature the speed will improve. We were joined by a small group of mountains goats on a couple of holes, that was very cool, and completed the experience. A great day !!!!

I've played many course's in the Palm Springs area. This is truly a treat to be able to play here. Every place you look could be a Screensaver on someone's computer. The fairway layouts are really creative and well groomed. Early morning visits from the local Bighorn sheep and the occasional roadrunner's make the outing enjoyable.

We played this course as the first of 7 on a golf vacation. Starter said it would be the best we played, it wasn't. Course was in good shape but not as good as two others we played (Classic & Westin Mission Hills). Staff were professional but very business like. We had no previous experience of Palm Springs and daylight hours. So I question why we were given 4 tee times for 16 golfers starting at 12.23? As we found out, we were never in with a chance of completing our round, especially given that the group in front of us had a walker!
