High expectations met

We had very high expectations playing this course. And the day was perfect.
Perfect condition, perfect layout. As difficult as we were fearing, but worth every dollar.
Don’t forget to bring your sand wedge, preferably a 62 degrees!

Well designed challenging course

I heard the course and I watched professionals played the course for the championship. I finally played it myself. It's amazing experience!

The entire PGA West community is a golfer's dream place! So well designed courses and houses filled the area. It's quite a scene!

The club house is nice and the staffs from club house, starter and marshal are all very nice.

As for the course, I'm a 20 plus handicap. So people like me do not care so much about the scores. It's very difficult course filled with enormous bunkers and waters. So have to put your ball at the very precise place or your next shot will be very difficult to play. The green is fast, not professional tournament fast, though.

I enjoyed play there again in near future and other courses in the PGA West. I will check the golfnow often to find the good deals. Or, the regular price is around $ 200/round. It's not cheap.

One hour plus frost delay and then a 5+ hour pace. Quit at the turn. Maybe better on another day.

Challenging layout

I really enjoyed this golf course. We chose the white tees which were plenty of a challenge for me. (5 hdcp but not real long off the tee). Excellent conditions and a nice pace of play.

Perfection in the desert

Played the Stadium Course just 4 days after the PGA tour event and what a fantastic experience! This was our 6th time playing the course, and it has been great every time, but today the conditions were immaculate! Tee boxes and greens were absolute perfection. Only a couple spots in the fairway that I hit my ball where the tour players did, and so had to dodge divots. They commented on television that the greens looked like artificial turf they were so perfect, and it was true. You will be punished if you hit wayward shots, so go with realistic expectations for a score and you will have an unforgettable day!

Players Course

This is 3 days after the PGA tour completed the Desert Classic, the old bob hope if you will" This is a must play if you consider yourself a golfer. It has several tee boxes for all levels. I found the TIPS to be a very good challenge. My game was a little off, so I paid the price, but it was firm and fast. Something you all need to experience.

Great staff but too much challenge for efficient play

This Pete Dye design sets you up for slow play. I golf for fun and this wasn't so much fun. No carts on the course made any kind of normal golf play impossible. I'm glad we experienced it once. No rush to try it again with so many courses to choose from.

Great course in beautiful condition.

Wow! Loved the course, especially thanks to a great GolfNow rate. Challenging but fair. Make sure to check the map in the cart to locate bunkers, there are lots and they can be punishing.
