Excellent Value

We were looking to play a quick twilight round and found this course on GN,, I played it a few years ago and back then the conditions were pretty rough, But at a advertised price of $15 you can’t beat it. It’s a tight community living course but the fairways were in nice condition as well as the greens. If you can keep it o. The fairway it’s a fine course, unfortunately a lot of other people were taking advantage of the great price, so it was quite slow.

Course is in great shape.
A couple of dry lakes spoil the look a bit but doesn’t take away from the golf.

Not worth the monehy

Surprisingly bad course conditions. I played about a half dozen similiarly priced courses in Palm Springs and this one was by far the worse. Greens are ok, fairways are fair and everything around that is poor. I think a $29 a round price with full cart and a cooler pre filled with beer would be about right. Sorry but you all need to put some money into this course or close it down.

Course Needs Work

The course is in relatively poor shape but it happeras this will change under new ownership by the Resorter HOA. In the meantime the course lacks maintenance on several ponds, visible yardage markers and a course Marshall. The foursome in front of us were very slow, even fishing for balls on the ninth fairway when we were waiting at sundown.

Good condition

The pace of play is very, very slow! The booking times are too tight and this results in extremely slow play. We like the course and staff but they need to do something about the slow play.

Resorter

Course is in good condition. It is a wide open course unless you are a sliver. Some homes do come into play if you seriously slice. Other than that it has a nice mixture of hazards.
Great curse for the amateur.

Nice public course

This is a nice public course that has a good range and practice facility. 6200+ from the whites that played fair for the most part. The 18th hole is a very challenging finishing hole that requires water carry on you first two shots.

Played It Again Today

Ok - I played the course again today tee off at 6:30am. It took 3 hrs and 10 minutes to get around. Tee off boxes, fairways and greens - all in great shape.

Was an excellent start to the day !!!

Don’t believe everything you read below

Ok - I wasn’t born yesterday. I read the reviews and was a bit leery about playing the course. However I was pleasantly surprised. The course is in decent shape - tee off boxes, fairways and greens - all good. Of course the rough has weeds in it and it’s not well maintained. It’s rough ! Stay on the fairway. Maybe they should add Hawthorne bushes to the rough. That would hurt.

The pace of play was good - 4hrs and 10 minutes for 18 holes on a long weekend is pretty good.

In an ideal world every thing would be manicured - that’s not practical for $70 a round in prime time.

Overall good value for the money: greens, core parts of fairway and tee offs boxes. The rough can be rough :-)
