They met me when I was walking in. The service was excellent. Unfortunately, the course needs some help. It’s in average condition at best. Many dry areas in fairways. Greens are green, but very hard. The sand is super hard packed. The price was right for the experience. If I had payed realize price before arriving I would have been disappointed to say the least.

Again, the customer service was second to none. They treated me like they were really glad I was there.

Kinda last minute as the girlfriend wished to golf on Mother’s Day, she is in the very early stages of learning.

I have played the south course maybe 15-20 times, this was the first time for the North Course. Tee time 12:50, parking lot almost empty, which is a good thing, cause as I said the girlfriend is really new to golf. We talk the first guy we see, he says he will get our bags, put them on the cart and it’ll be waiting for us after we check in.

Checking went great, super friendly guy checked us in, made small talk, the guy couldn’t of been nicer. I’m sure he wanted to go home, but he didn’t ever treat us in a rush.

The course is nothing like the south course. It’s very old school Palm Springs golf course, which was awesome by the way. Reading up on the history of the place knowing the “Rat Pack” have played and hung out there made it just that much more awesome! The stories those Palm trees could tell!!

Anyway the course was in good shape, greens were well manicured, fairways were nice as well. Since we were the last time of the day and the girlfriend is a horrible golfer, I felt we should step our pace of play. After just teeing off on 16 I see the course worker coming our way. He doesn’t say a word, I was fully ready to skip the last few holes so he could go home. Well since he didn’t say anything we kept playing.

Round is over, he cleans the clubs, makes small talk as we are loading our clubs. Obviously the south course is more modern, but if you’re looking to play golf at an old school Palm Springs course, this is s great choice.

See ya this summer south course, as you are my go to course in the summer.

This course is enjoyable on many levels. The layout is not too exciting—it was built to be in the midst of a neighborhood—but each hole has some nuance that makes it fun to play. The greens are arguably the best in Palm Springs. They are quick but roll true. For all of the mid-century architecture in Palm Springs, this course is a perfect complement. I’m bummed it’s not open the whole year!

This course was in great shape. It is a little easier, being with generous fairways. But, since this was our second time out, rough Chicago spring, it worked out great before tackling some harder courses.

The course itself was just average. Longer cut fairways then most other courses in the Palm Desert area. But the history with Frank Sinatra hosting tournaments in the early 60's when the course opened, the water fountain that Disney donated. All the black and white photes. Now that stuff was cool...

Great round, especially for the price. Greens in great shape and good speed. Sand traps could use a little more sand. Pace of play was 4 hours. Totally met my expectations.

The North course is a much more challenging test than the South course - fairways are narrower, significantly more doglegs, generally longer holes - and it would be a great course if there was more sand in the bunkers. The fairways are in great condition and the greens are rolling fast.

Palm Springs - 85° and no wind @ noon...can't be beat. Green fairways at perfect height and greens running 11-12 and never smoother. Lastly, played in 3hrs. 15min!...felt like our own private C.C.

Luv this course! Everyone runs to the South course, but North Course is a real gem! Gr8 conditions, the best staff of any course in the area.. Treat folks like family.

Less busy so you can relax and not have a Marshall pushing you... price is always fair as well! I’m paying 35.00 for 18 with Golfnow. Greens roll nice... fairways are watered n green... and the course is very scenic. Feels like a Country Club rather than a Public Course. If you want amenities, go over to South Clubhouse .

Pro shop, good food etc...

Make sure you say Hello to Murph... he runs the place;)
