The greens were simply god awful. If you are a purist, stay away from this course until mid-October. If you are resident and paying $30 after 1 pm, that appears to be over-priced. It should be more like $15 given the current substandard condition of the greens. A staff member told us that they are gearing up for re-seeding in September. The practice greens were just as bad or worse. This seems to be a recurring disaster every summer. On the other hand, the Bermuda fairways and roughs were in great shape. In some spots, the rough was very punishing. I don't see why they cannot maintain greens like the courses in Palm Springs do. The staff was friendly. One big positive is that our two-some got through playing a round in 2.5 hours. On Wednesdays, however, there is a 5-some from the men's club that tees off around 11:30. Don't go after that group.
The greens are god awful. They are letting them go in preparation for re-seeding in September, we were told by a staff member. Poor residents pay $30 after 1:00 pm, the lowest rate available. $15 is more appropriate compared to what other courses charge during summer months. The same poor maintenance observed on the practice greens. Fairways and rough are quite good on the other hand. Carts are decent but no GPS. BYO. Staff is friendly. One other positive is that we (2 -some) played a round in about 2.5 hours. The heat is keeping the golf population down. So you can play fast unless you get stuck behind a 5-some from the men’s club. Avoid Wednesdays.
worth the visit
The staff was friendly and welcoming. The fairways were in excellent condition, mowed and well groomed.
The greens were recently aerated, so they were receptive but slow. They appear to be coming along well. My friends and I will play this course again.
Course Undergoing Maintenance (I hope)
The course appears to be undergoing maintenance. Both the fairways and greens appear to have been punched. Thus the greens wee slow and bumpy. There seemed to be more dirt on the greens than grass. Hopefully this will improve in a few weeks. I am not happy that they charged full price with the course in this condition.
I have been playing this course since it opened. For the first eight to ten years it was always well kept and the staff very inviting. Now it is hit and miss. This week they were aerating the greens ( a necessity from time to time). Only the front nine was open, so I had to play it twice. The course was very slow so no problem. The sanding over the greens was not done very well, this made them touch to putt. After I finished, it was so slow, I asked if I could play another nine due to the conditions of the course. They said "no". " you paid for 18, that's all you get. This would not have been said 5, 7, or 10 years ago. Service needs work.
No notic on greens coring/9 holes closed
Turned up for my 1126 booking only to be told the back 9 was closed for green coring. The front 9 greens were atrocious having been cored yesterday apparently but only a minimal sand covering and no watering in. Appreciate this has to be done but need to warn golfers of the timing beforehand.
Have always liked this course. It was extremely hot today. I only made it through 9 hole. Still had fun.
Great course and is definitely challenging and worth the money
