The summer time is the best time to play SilverRock because the rates are very affordable. During the winter, the rates tend to be too pricey. You can't get more for your money in the desert than this course.

Love to play here. Lots of challenging holes with many sand bunkers and a fair share of water hazards. I always look forward to playing here.


Player Tip: Keep the ball in the fairways here off of the tee, even if you have to give up some length on your shot by cutting down on your swing aggressiveness.

Course was great. The gold tees are plenty, played a mix between silver and gold and it was torture at 7,400 yards. Don't play it all the way back unless you are B. Watson, Jay Day, D. Johnson or you would like to shoot 110.

Played the course in the middle of summer and the conditions were great except for the patchwork they call the 17th green.

If you can't hit it 245 straight off the tee this course will get you.

If your driver has abandoned you on this particular outing (not that I would know anything about that...) you're going to struggle, unlike some desert courses where it's "hit your 4 iron of the tee all day long and score".

Pace of play was whatever we wanted it to be.

Staff was very friendly and helpful.

Fairways were in great shape and the green for the most part rolled well.

Will definitely be back; after I have some words with my driver.

It had been over a year since I played SilverRock. The clubhouse continues its inexorable decline, the greens are among the worst in the Valley (bordering on the unputable andd running at 2 on the stimpmeter) and the fairways recently airiated. As I compose this message, I am trying to find one or two redeeming features of the overall facility, but, alas, I cannot conjure even one in my mind. This is a club which is supposed to be one of the premier ones in the Valley. Instead, I would rank the condition as one of the worst.

Thank you for your review and comments regarding your experience at SilverRock on June 25, 2016. We are very sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your round of golf and had a negative experience. It is our goal to provide a positive and memorable experience to every golfer throughout the year. SilverRock is a premier golf course in the Coachella Valley with a 93% customer satisfaction rating over 12 years of operating. We take every comment very serious and pride ourselves on being one of the best golf courses in the Coachella Valley.

During late spring and early summer time, golf courses in the Coachella Valley start to transition from cool season grass to warm season grass. Some golf courses transition quicker than others depending up grass types, soil profiles and mother nature. At SilverRock , we schedule our 1st aerificaiton the 3rd week of June to help with this transition which allows the Bermuda grass to breathe & help alleviate compaction. Unfortunately, you played our golf course 2 days after the entire course was aerified. As a result, the greens were/are slower than normal but is common following any aerificaiton. SilverRock is currently going through its transition now and will take several weeks to complete. As a result, we lower our green fees to 1/5 of what we charge in the season. Many golfers take advantage of the lower prices but understand that the golf course may not be in pristine condition like it is in the winter or prime seasonal months.

We would have gladly refunded your money if you were not satisfied with the course after you played a hole or two and noticed the condition of the course or greens was not to your expectations. As a gesture to regain your business, we would like to invite you out again as our guest. Please contact, Randy Duncan, General Manager/Director of Golf to coordinate or to share any other comments from your round of golf. 760-777-8884 ext. 4

Thank you again for your feedback and comments.

Played by myself because the group that I was supposed to play with took off early without me. I get the hint,people don't want to play with strangers. Course was in great shape with the exception of 17 green which was completely lost I'm assuming because of the heat. I had the pleasure of being accompanied by about 30 or so big horn sheep throughout the day. One of them stood 8 feet from me as I teed of of 17th hole and could care less if I was there or not! Spectacular views of the mountains. One of the desert's finest courses .

have heard this course was awesome, but didn't get a chance to play it in prime time; played at the end of May. The fairways were in great shape, but I have never seen so many unrepaired balls marks on greens, ever!! I would say they were in attrocious shape. And these were on all the greens, not just the back nine that they are planning to redo. I sure hope they are in better shape in the winter.

If your looking for a beautiful course right next to the mountains this is one of them. 5 sets of tees for all levels. Water, sand traps and scenery that is unique. In my top 5 in Palm Springs area. Lots of mountain sheep grazing on the mountain side of the course. If I had a knock, some of the greens were burned? Parched? Definitely will return.

This was a great course. The GPS was helpful. The fairways tended to be a little hard. The hidden water made for a poor score but I know where to go next time. Courses down here need flowers. Service at the 19th Hole was slow.

Played Silverrock for the first time with some friends on our latest trip to Palm Springs and booked through Golf Now and got a great rate. Played the combo tees which was a nice mix for all of us. Course was in great shape and offered a great mix that will challenge any golfer yet still allow you the opportunity to score well as there are some generous landing spots available. If I had to find something critical to say (which was hard to do) the greens were quite grainy with plenty of top dressing, however that was understandable as the summer season was upon them. Staff were amazing, very courteous and very knowledgable. Overall awesome experience and will definitely play again.
