Player

Rode the Golds (6643/71.5/126) with Bill, mike and Pat in 4H, 40M. The weather was around 60, partly cloudy and windy.

The were level and lush, All the par 3's needed divot attention.

The fairways were lush and nice to play from. About as good as I have ever seen them here after all the recent rain. Only negative is too many unfixed divots, which is a golfer issue.

The Bermuda rough is not over seeded and is mowed down close. Expect a scruffy lie.

The sand traps were well maintained with decent sand.

The greens were very nice. Smooth and putted medium fast. They are firm but still held irons okay.

Really good all grass practice facilities with unlimited range balls. The customer service was very good as usual here. Plenty of water stations on the course. Drink cart out making the rounds several times. Carts have GPS. While most fairways are generous in width, Player is not really a grip it and rip it course. Losing balls in native bushes and OB is close to many fairways if you venture off the short grass on many holes. The layout also has numerous lakes to navigate over/around. it's tough but not overly demanding, solid course, nothing tricked up. Good choice for players of all skill levels. Recommended.

Golfer Friendly

This is always a fun course to play. It survived the torrential rain very well. The winter rough is a bit hard to play out of and some of the traps were very wet, but all in alll it was an enjoyable experience. The layout is super and the practice facilities are complete. Greens often ran much straighter than we expected.

Loved it!

This is a great golf course and glad we booked it off golf now. Will play here again for sure. The pro shop and restaurant are just ok. The bag drop is unattended so carry in your own clubs upon arrival. Had to wait and grab cart as groups finish. The course layout condition and experience was fantastic though spite all the other stuff.

15 Holes

Got the twilight rate but had to leave after 15 holes to make a dinner reservation. With our handicaps of 20 each, we thoroughly enjoyed the course and wished we could have finished.

Would play the course again but not at the full rate of 125 per round on a Sunday.

The Westin Mission Hills Resort - Gary Player

The Gary Player Course is one of the nicest courses in Rancho Mirage. Our foursome had a great time and played in about 4 hours and 20 minutes. The weather was excellent as was the Golf Course. The fairways were in great condition and the greens were running true and in excellent condition as well. The course is a very fair design and there aren't any real surprises, like blind holes or things of that nature.. Just a few bunkers were not too great, but overall I would recommend this course to anyone and hope to be playing it again very soon.

Great Course

The Gary Player course is a great course that has held up the test of time. The Westin keeps it in wonderful condition. Not a killer course for higher handicappers from the White or forward tees, but has some teeth from the 2 back sets. Water, Sand & grass bunker/swales create a test, but not crazy tough. Fun course. I do wish they had a 6200-6300 yard Combo Tee set up. The Silvers (white) tees around 6000 are kind of short & the next back are over 6,600. I had not played it in a few years when I played last week, like running into an old friend! I'll be back soon.

Wet weather

Not Happy

It was raining the day of tee time. Could not change on GolfNow as it was too late and course wouldn’t either. Lost money. Not sure Golf Now is worth it.

Sad that you can’t get ahold of anyone on GOLFNOW when its the day of the tee time.
