was not informed that the palm course was closed...no starter, just a sign,,,BUT played the valley course and the light "vert-cut" on the green was no issue....this course is in excellent summertime shape...we played back nine first which resulted in an excellent pace of play...we always enjoy our games at marriott

This course is a must play , got great deal on golf now. The course was in great shape the fairways was excellent and greens had been punched 3 weeks ago so they was in pretty good shape they didn't affect your ball at all just a little sand in some spots. The layoff and the scenery was awesome, not very long but have some tough holes if you miss you spot the sand bunker was a little hard and the rough isn't very high i will definitely play again.

Great track. Not in as pristine condition as in February but great price. Slow golf isn't very enjoyable in 100+ heat but that's not the course's fault.

questionable decision to aireate and sand greens just before a Memorial Day holiday weekend. Might have been smarter to wait a few days.

It was 106 and the carts had ice but no water. No water on the course and almost no shade. Definitely should noy play here when it's really hot. We were dependent on the cart going around for refills of water and ice every 30 minutes or so.

Great layout. Course basically in excellent shape. Greens were a little rough due to recent aeration. It was a good value since it was off season. Normally fees much higher
