Not bad for the price.

For the price it’s not that bad.
Greens in very good condition
Still can’t understand why the restaurant doesn’t open until 11. Just silly!

Good value for the money

Course is good value for what we paid, pace of play was very slow, over 4.5 hours to play. This was caused because the players we were behind were very slow. They were at least 2 holes behind the group in front of them. They did not have enough golf etiquette to let us or others golfers play through. We finally went around them on 14 without finishing the hole. We did not see another golfer until the 18th tee. They need a bit of marshalling to improve the pace of play.

Lots of water. Need signage

Really a challenge with lots of water. They could use more signage to direct you to holes. Fair bit of street driving and crossovers. Signs would help.

Slow slow greens

First time playing at Cathedral Canyon. I did like the lay out considering it is surrounded by homes. Lots of challenge with many water holes and sand surrounding all the holes. I thought it quite funny that the red and silver tees are in the same location with only a difference of 20 yards between the two tees? Anyway, the fairways were good, the sand traps need new sand as they are very hard packed. The greens were lush but so very very slow.
The starter said that they were fast, not sure what fast means to him?? The greens were very inconsistent slow to slower to slowest.
No beverage cart, however they do have water on several holes.

Look out for the water

I was warned by the starter about all the water on the course and boy were they right. I lucked out and only hit the water once, but my buddy wasn’t so lucky. I really liked the course and found it very challenging.

Not for me

Played this course a few years ago and didn’t like it, gave I a second chance because it was recommended as much improved . I still don’t like it , the layout does not suit my game if I missed the water hazard I was in a sand trap .

Pace of Play

Pace of Play is the giant white elephant in the Coachella Valley. Of the 26 rounds I played in the five weeks I was there, very few maybe two were under 4 hours. Golf has a big issue. Slow players, usually 4 buddies taking hours on the green or couples that don't pick up, or older people who are not ready to take a shot. At Cath Canyon, on the third hole there were 2 groups on the hole and 4 waiting! Pathetic. Course sent someone out and I talked to a guy in the clubhouse, but they don't care, they know the same old slow fogies that play there are going to come back. I would rather play on 111 than there.
