Nice course - but not welcoming.
Proshop staff acted like I was interrupting them. Forgot range ball code and range half mile away. Starter was friendly and helpful.
Not a good experience is an understatement
We booked for 2 of us the day before to play at 12:30. When we got to the 1st tee, we were told things were a little backed up. We then were told that we would be a two-some and would be following a five-some that was teeing off ‘soon’.
We finally got going at 12:55 (now a little worried about completing our round before dark and about following a group of 5). The first half of the front nine was fine, but then the 5 in front of us started to fall behind. When we started, the starter assured us they would keep an eye on things and ensure this 5-some kept up.
At the turn, we stopped to give the back shop a wedge we had found beside the 9th green and the 5-some came up behind us, then said ‘hi’ and drove ahead to tee off. That bothered us to no end as the front 9 took 2 hours and 45 minutes to play. On the back we waited on every shot. When the marshal drove up to us on 13 we said that they were way behind and his answer was ‘hang in there’.
That kind of summed it up.
This place was badly organized, not managed and made several really bad decisions in putting groups out the way they did.
The course was interesteing but the management was so bad I would never risk going back there again.
Greens were very fast and difficult to read This course will provide a very good challenge from a good variety of tee boxes.
Round not finished 40 minutes behind after only playing 14 holes. Not only Waited every hole, waited every shot!
Where is the Windmill?
One of the worse designed golf courses I have ever played. I am a 6 handicap and at my best could not ever break 80 on this venue. If you took the best designed Jim Engh golf course then this one would be 10 times worse. Elevation changes fine but never any relief and penalized for any shot that is not perfect. Don’t play this course! What a horrible experience.
Customer service needed a bit of help
Had to wait for the two employees at the pro shop to finish arguing with some unexpectable language before we could pay. After that they did not put the driving code for balls on one ticket. They are part of your golf fee. When we got to the driving range they had no golf balls. Found that out by using the one code we did have for a bucket of balls. Once they finally got more golf balls, our code would not work as it was already enter when empty. When we asked there was nothing they could do about it. Have not seen this kind of customer service at any course before. Our starter was super friendly though. We still had a nice round and day, but they need to figure some things out
Played this track many times. Usually turf problems on several fairways. Course is in the best shape i’ve seen in 10+ years.
Cart return time an issue.
We booked our tee time for 1:08pm which included range balls. We got to the course 1 hr early to warm and hit some balls. We got there and found out the driving range closes on Thursdays from 12 - 1pm for maintenance. We checked in and headed out on time. The pace was quiet slow, we waited on every shot, then we arrived at hole 15 at about 4:40pm and the GPS on the cart notified us that we had to turn the cart in by 5pm. Nothing was mention about this at checkin or when we got our cart. We asked if we could walk the last 3 holes because there was still at least 40 minutes of daylight and they told us we couldn't and said that's why the rates go down after 1pm. They did not care one bit that we didn't finish.
This policy should be stated on the site when bookings are made so people don't find out like us and leaving with a bad experience.
The course is in nice shape, only play it if you can tee off by noon or you may not finish!
Good course in good condition; greens were fast and have considerable contour; chipping competency is required to secure.
The course is great. Fairways are on the narrow side and the greens are tough.
Tougher Than The Slope / Rating
The course is very nice. Worth the trip for sure.
However, the slope is not well reflective of reality based on two recent rounds. The greens are VERY fast. I've play at very nice courses (not the super expensive ones, but country clubs at least) and these are the fastest green I've played on which takes time to get used to and often requires landing your ball in front of the green and letting it roll unless you have a backspin or great height. As well, though the course is not exceptionally long, the fairways are pretty tight, especially in typical landing zones.
But - as I said - it's a very good course and I do recommend it.
They flat out lied to us and would not fulfill their promise on our tee time.
Our kids came to visit us in Palm Desert while we were here for a month and wanted to golf on their last day, so I searched for tee times through GolfNow.com and came across the Terra Lago course. We had a few extra riders (non-golfers) and so before I confirmed our tee time, I called the course to verify this would work with them. It took 2 days and 6 calls to finally get an answer and they said they would make it work for $25 per rider, up to 4 extra people. .
We showed up early to get everything arranged and the golf pro told us he couldn’t and wouldn’t allow our extra riders and would not accomadate as promised. Not only did he fail to perform as promised (on our last day together) but he was EXTREMELY rude to us. It was too late to reschedule at another course, and it was one of the most awkward situations I have ever been in. And to top it off, we got billed $305 for canceling too late.
There are way too many beautiful courses with amazing staff to put up with this unacceptable behavior.
I would not recommend this course to anyone.
Everything is 2nd rate. Course is in substandard shape. GPS was off by 20 yards. No ball washer on the cart or at the tee boxes. Fairways are narrow and greens are gimickie. Snack bar closed and no one in the clubhouse to take a quick order after nine.On and on and on. Never again.
Tricky and tricked up, THEREFORE worth the time, energy and $$
After we played over a dozen courses, this was as good as any in PS! this week . The ton of rain last week may have helped this course over others. Today this course was in great shape and as green as any. However fairways are rock hard and tightly moved. So every miss hit drive, still went over 300 yards. Therefore this is well worth the 30 minute driver and ,$70 cost. But the North is much harder, especially the greens. The course is very very long, but they have shorter tees to make it very easy for the high handycapiers in our group. Also know the weather here is tricky. Don't play this course, if any chance of 10, mph wind ior 100 degrees in the forecast. They don't have many trees. However they do have a few tees for shade near tees. But need a lot more, especially around the tees.
Course is great for those with high or low handicaps
Terra Lago. Take your pick
These 2 courses are outstanding. Well laid out, very challenging greens and do not go wide on any tee shots. Big rewards for accurate tee shots but you will suffer if you deviate from the fairway. Love these courses.
