Beautiful Course

This is one of my favorite courses in the Cochella Valley. Beautiful setting with very interesting green configurations. Course was in top shape when I played on 11/25/2020.

Gorgeous Course

First time playing here after hearing from many that it is a very pretty course. Played early afternoon in absolutely perfect, clear sunny conditions. Course is in great shape, greens roll beautifully and the many tees provide as much challenge as you want to face.

VERY enjoyable afternoon.

Really slow

No reason to have a 5 hour round. Crazy slow. Too many tee times perhaps. Course in decent shape though. Really slow greens as most reviewers said. Wide open. Not too tough.

Fun Round

You'd never know that there is new management. Things have been scaled back from the good old days of the private country club. No more Club Corp. Still a great round of golf at Moderate pricing.

Wonderful Course

Absolutely beautiful course. Extremely friendly staff. Surprising amount of elevation change. No cookie cutter holes. Each one was distinct and interesting. Great course, great price, truly a hidden gem.

Slow, slow, slow

The greens were unbelievably slow. Tee time was 20 minutes behind schedule. Last two holes were played in the dark, because of slow pace of play and late start. Unacceptable based on other courses in the area.

Beautiful course, slow play, late start

The course was beautiful. They started us 22 min late and we waited on every hike and every shot. On the turn at 2:15 all food service had ceased - terrible for a Saturday and an obviously full course.

More Than What I Expected

What a fun challenging course. Greens were a little slower than I'm used to, but that was ok because the greens still had great slopes, and I adjusted to the speed in just a few holes. Loved the views, and each fairway had its own personality. Water holes were very creative and could be difficult on how to play them because the carts didn't have any gps range help.

Don't try to play from the rough

The rough is too long. Ok, I know it's just past over-seed season but we spent way too much time on several holes looking for balls that weren't that far off the fairway, maybe two to five yards off. The 16th hole, forced carry to the green over a pond., was virtually unplayable from any place but the fairway. Great if you're hosting the U.S. Open, not so great for every day players. Ditto 18. Otherwise, greens are a bit slow but we've played worse. Starting at 1:00 p.m. on Veteran's Day was not a problem: we (wife and I) finished in three and a half hours in full daylight. It was NOT cart path only.
