Good track

I played both the Westin courses in the same day first the Pete dye resort course and then the Gary player resort course both courses are very similar they are in excellent condition greens are a little long and A little slow the fairways and tees are in excellent condition the greens still putt true but don’t hold as well as others I have played the staff is extremely friendly and helpful loved playing both these courses and will do it again

Always a pleasure

Beautiful conditions, fairways were immaculate and most of the greens perfect. Went out earlier than usual, which explains the somewhat slow pace. Didn't see a marshal on the course, might have been helpful to encourage a slow foursome ahead. Not the most convenient course from home, but worth the drive. Service was wonderful.

Player

Rode the Golds (6643/71.5/126) with Darren mid day in 3H. The weather was close to 110, hazy and fairly calm.

The Bermuda tees were well maintained for divots, level and lush. Nice!

The Bermuda fairways were well maintained with few unfixed divots. Lush and nice to play from.

The Bermuda rough had been mowed since my last visit here, which created a whole new set of challenges. Still 2-3' deep with an inch of grass clipping on top, anything barely off the fairway was likely a time out to look for your ball. The staff said the climate conditions had the Bermuda literally growing as fast as they could cut it. The ball sat down and was challenging to hit even short irons a decent distance on line once you found it.

The sand traps were well maintained with dark brown sand/dirt. However, they are still mediocre, inconsistent depths. The only part of the course not well above average, they need to be avoided.

The Bermuda greens were firm but still held irons okay. They putted mostly smooth and were medium speed.

Really good all grass practice facilities that are included with your fee. The customer service was excellent in the pro shop and with the starter/cart staff. Plenty of water stations on the course. No Drink cart today. No GPS on the carts is a definite minus for a Troon managed layout. Player is a solid course, nothing tricked up, it's tough but not overly demanding. Recommended.

Player

Played the Golds (6643/71.5/126) with 140ver. The weather was around 105, clear and calm. We played 45 holes on an UP play all day voucher, averaging about 1H, 40M per 9 on a layout that is in really solid, late summer shape considering the heat.

The Bermuda tees were level, lush and well maintained for divots.

The Bermuda fairways were lush and well maintained with few unfixed divots. Nice to play from.

The Bermuda rough was lush and deep, usually 3-4". The ball sat down and was often difficult to find unless you knew exactly where to look. At least a 1/2 stroke penalty to play out of, it was challenging to hit short irons a decent distance on line.

The sand traps were mediocre overall. Most were well raked with dark brown sand/dirt.

The Bermuda greens were mostly smooth and putted medium speed. They are firm but still held irons okay.

Player is a solid course, nothing tricked up, it's tough but not overly demanding. Tight course in spots with numerous lakes to navigate over/around. Lost balls/OB can come into play quickly on crooked shots. Really good all grass practice facilities that are included with your fee. The customer service was excellent in the pro shop and with the starter/cart staff. Plenty of water stations on the course. No Drink cart today. No GPS on the carts is a -. I enjoy this Troon managed layout. Recommended.

Forget This Place

I quit after only two holes. The greens were uncut and so slow that putting and chipping was a total waste of time. The management was kind enough to give me a raincheck. Most of the courses in the desert allow their greens to grow longer due to the heat, but this was too much. I strongly suggest waiting for summer to end before choosing this course. Nice staff, but the greens caused total frustration.

First Time Playing

Exactly what we expected.

PLayed a round today with a Hot Deal and with the forecasted heat we expected the course to be empty as it was. Pace was great and the conditions were good for the time of year. Bunkers weren’t ready for prime time but thankfully I didn’t visit any. Staff was minimal as we would expect for the time of year, but the course was in decent shape and we played with some higher handicaps with a 4 hour pace without really seeing anyone else. Would do it again as we like the trade off of extreme heat and great pace of play at these great courses. Water up and get out there. It’s a great time to play.
