Pete Dye course

A little disappointing because unable to ride on fairways ( overseeding) and greens were slow which affected the grain on putts. Nice layout and friendly staff.

Pete Dye continues to impress

This course and facility embodies what is amateur golfers crave: great course, excellent staff and a superb conditions. Price point is bang on as well. GPS and cart staff all Working fine. Loved playing and have played this course about 20-30 tones over the past 20 years. If you haven’t tried it.....do so. And.....the lakes aren’t “dyed” (no pun intended) so you can look for your ball and grab some Of mine while you’re at it!

Good day that could have been excellent

Great weather, great layout however we couldn’t ride the fairways because they were recently over seeded (we get it and not an issue but made for a bit longer round). The track is very challenging especially so if you miss fairways and end up in the huge bunkers that are predominant on most all holes. The greens were super slow, which created their own challenge.

Lack of a full complement of lunch menu items coupled with a super rude snack shack attendant doesn’t go over very well. Other staff members were professional enough.

Challenging and punishing course

Course is pretty and well kept. However, I felt as though the slope rating was not an accurate reflection of the course. Many of the greens are elevated with large slopes off each side. Challenging to approach and punishing if you are just a little off. Tee shots can be very tight on some holes with houses close to the fairway. Greens were slow and hard to read. I understand this is typical of a pete dye design but definitely not my favorite course in the desert.

Great Course

Played the Pete Dye course on the 1st of August. Green fees were pretty reasonable during the summer heat. Played early morning at 6:30am, first group of the day in a threesome. We finished in less then four hours.
Course conditions were awesome, greens were a little slow, sand traps were thick granular rocks. The staff was very welcoming and friendly.
I could only imagine what the conditions would be during peak season.

Nice course

Overall this is a nice course, challenging holes in good shape ( considering it’s Palm Springs/Rancho Mirage.) The tees & the fairways are great, the greens are good-but getting a little hard.
I’d like to see them work the traps a little more, some were collecting water & had that hard finish.
The driving range & pro shop are great.
