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


Player Tip: Play the H2O wholes with balls you don"t mind losing.

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

We only were able to play the front nine and played it twice as we paid for 18 holes. ALWAYS check the fine print on Golf Now when you are about to purchase the golf as I did not look closely enough to see there was a disclaimer the back 9 was closed. People at the course were very nice and we will probably go back again to play so that we can go through all 18 holes.

The Staff was great. The course was ok for the summer and being maintained with challenges being the heat in the desert with a average temperature 0f 108. Greens had been sanded, which made it difficult to putt. Back nine is closed until November 2014. In order to play 18 holes you had to play the front nine twice.

Well I hadn't played this course in a number of years, but it is just as I remembered it. And that is it is a very good course. The only draw back is that only 9 holes are open due to construction on the back 9. But in all fairness to the course it is not their construction but that of the local water district. You will be challenged on this course, but you will still enjoy it as it will reward you for a good shot. Get out and play it.
