Not as tough but still...

Since Pete Dye came out to redesign the course it has been tamed quite a bit. It used to be a monster with every fairway lined with waist high bushes on all of the mounds (and 6.5 hour rounds). With the redesign it is still a beast but you can make some loose shots and still recover now. The fairways were pristine, tees in great shape, and greens a bit on the slower side than normal but still running very smooth. Come on out, you won't regret it. I was a bit disappointed on the first tee when I found out that I paid $175 through GolfNow and the 3some I was with paid $125. Not sure how they got that rate but you should know that it's out there if you can find it.

This was our last round before leaving Palm Springs heading back to Alberta. Good customer service from. When you are met to getting on the course. Course in great shape. Challenging and narrow fairways. You had to think about your next shot.
When walking across the bridge on the 17th hole, Alcatraz, interesting to note that many PGA golfers had walked the same bridge.

Fantastic!

Beautiful course, great condition. unbeatable scenic vistas. Loved every minute of it. Very playable if you choose appropriate tee blocks and you're not hitting it all over the yard. Friendly staff. Eat and drink at Ernie's patio afterward to prolong a great day

Playing like the Pros

It was a great course to get a sense of what the Pros encounter even though not playing from the ‘tips’.
Nice idea to clearly make the entry and exits to the fairways. Areas of the course were quite dry and browned out.
Given this was first time playing the course we found it difficult to navigate around the many ,many bunkers. The GPS was not very helpful in many cases in order to be able to see bunkers behind rolls and hills. Greens were purported to be running at 11 in many instances they were much slower but rolling consistently.
Overall it was a tough test of golf, given it was our first time out for the season, it was probably not the best choice to start on. I would definitely play the course again.

Super Stadium

What a track!! I listened to the staff and jumped up to the White tees. What a stellar piece of advice. I was able to really enjoy the course and reach the greens. Unreal condition. Keep up the pace so you can take pics and videos at the 17th.

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.
