Good for everyone

This is a nice course for all ages and skill levels. It also is a good warm up course if you're a little rusty. There's very little trouble with nice broad fairways and only a few water hazards. It has more of an old school feel than the newer resort courses, but it's in as good condition as any of the resort courses I've played in the Palm Springs area.

Bombs away!

Wow! Wide open fairways make it nearly impossible to go out of bounds. (That is, as long as you can land a shot within fifty yards one way or the other of your aiming point). Bomber friendly fairway width and great conditions make this place a super fun place to play!

Nice course, pleasant staff, Greens starting to have issues

Staff was very nice, from the cart attendant to the pro shop staff. Fairways are generous and like a carpet. The greens look like they are starting to be impacted by a fungus or something else, some areas are getting sparse, I suspect the unusual amount of rain this winter. This happens and I would guess once the sun heats things up it wil recover nicely. I would definitely play this course again.

Enjoyable Course

I enjoying playing this course because it is always in amazing shape and has it challenges without being too difficult. Would highly recommend for a round when you are looking to boost your confidence but it is by no means a cake walk. Playing the tips certainly makes if all the more challenging although I played from the whites this time but have also played from the tips.

Shotgun Start?

Didn't realize this was going to be a shotgun start when I booked. Pace of play was not good. It took us 5 hours. Very easy course. Tee boxes and fairways nice but greens were beat up. Mostly dirt. No drink carts no food carts. Just vending machines which they call snack bars. By the time we were finished didn't want to stay to try the grill. Course was pretty.

The homeowners own this course,maybe you played at a time when they punched the greens but our greens are in excellent condition and pro fast. We play in under 4 hours most days of the week-perhaps weekend with outside players are slower. We rarely use beverage or drink carts during play unless their is a tournament. Our players are out there to play golf and afterwards are clubhouse has a great grill room and outside patio.

Nice people.

My wife and I were paired with a member and his buddy. We try to play it every year. Good variety. The tough par threes may explain the 4 1/2 hours to play. Tough greens and could be smoother. A nice track and fun to play.

After the rainstorm

Played in the afternoon shotgun. Half an hour late starting because of rain the previous evening. There was still some casual water from rainstorm. Other than that course was well kept.Speed of greens was excellent. Played in 4 hours 12 minutes, so there e was no problem completing round. Overall enjoyable round. Long travels between some holes bye adequately signed.

A must play!

From arrival to the end of our round the staff were excellent and informative. As non members we were given an escort to ours starting hole. The course is in fantastic shape and the greens fast. Amazingly their are no brown patches to be seen anywhere. The maintenance staff does a great job laying out the course for carts and keeping it in top shape. It's open enough with houses lining most fairways and large greens. A great day in spite of rare rain.

Nice day of golf

We played on a Sunday when the brunch buffet was offered prior to play. The food was delicious and plenty of it. The course was lush and green, beautifully kept. The rough was not terribly punitive which helped pace of play. The greens were in excellent conditon and running very fast, but once you adjusted to them, they were fair. Nothing "tricked up", no drama, just "what you see is what you get" golf. I would recommend Heritage Palms anytime!

What's with the greens?

Beautiful facility. Great layout, great views, nice fairways. I am a single digit player. The greens were far too hard, and, as a result, far too fast. Greens were 'Supposedly' 11 on the stemp. I play a ProV1 and couldn't stop a sand wedge. Finding your ball mark was virtually impossible. Turn on the water! I would play it again.
