Underwhelmed

I expected more from this course based on some of the reviews. The course had no signature holes to say WOW! We played Indian Wells the day before and thought this would be at the same level. Unfortunately it was not. Save your money and for the same price play Indian Wells. You will be glad you did.

Perfect

I was a single and was paired up with an amazing group of people. It's always a crap shoot on who you're gonna get in your group. I think the golf gods were smiling on me. The staff were very polite and helpful. The course was full of rolling hills and more traps than I could count, but I love a good challenge. I did however have a poor golf day and made plenty of ball contributions to the course. But the atmosphere and company made it well worth it.

Disjointed

Great condition, but I didn't love the layout. Hard to tell where to hit the drive to have a better entrance into difficult greens. Also not a good flow from one hole to the next - like riding through condo complex to get to next tee.

Play Firecliff

Course winds through vacation properties making for long drives between holes. Greens slope toward water so high approach shots are a must to hold them. Kitchen closed at 6:30 so no food available after the round. Of the 2 courses Play Firecliff.

Rode the Purple tees (6507/71.2/128) in 4H, 20 twilight using Forelinx. Paired with Laura, Susan and Emmie, fun group to play with. The weather was clear, fairly calm and around 75.

Playing conditions were excellent bording on immaculate across the board.

The tees were very nice. Lush and level with few divots.

The fairways are lush, firm and really nice to play from.

The rough is lush and mowed down. Good POP rough, not overly penal. Really nice to chip from.

The waste bunkers were firm and not as well maintained as the greenside traps. The greenside traps had good quality sand and were nicely maintained.

The greens putted medium fast and were smooth and firm.

This course would be challenging to walk as numerous tees are a long way from the last green. Customer Service always excellent here from when you drop your clubs off out front to when you pick them up out front. Drink cart out making the rounds several times. Good GPS on carts. Plenty of ice/water stations on the course. The all grass driving range is included and above average. Nice practice chipping area. Highly recommended, very under rated course in the Palm Springs area.

Perfect Conditions

Course was well maintained, layout was challenging but fun. Greens were fast and lots of break, seemed like all pin locations were difficult. regardless, course was in great shape and was an enjoyable round. Fairways were fair and flat for the most part. Second cut was difficult to hit out of. Clubhouse and practice facility was superb.

For midweek, the course was very busy. We met many locals at the range and they all said tee times are usually booked solid. We had to wait for majority of the holes. playing 2 rounds that day we had to get food to go between rounds.
Worth the visit, would play again.
