Played the Eagle tees (6715/72.8/133) in 4H, 20M with rudyclub and lotrgolfer48. Thank to Tim & Matt for a fun round! The weather was in the 90's, overcast with little wind.
There were many individual holes that I really like on this course. Par 72. Three par 3's, three par 5's and TWELVE par 4's. Excellent mixture of risk reward, medium and longer par 4's. so it's keeps things interesting. The course was in excellent late summer condition overall.
They do not offer twilight rates here, same price AD.
The tee were lush and well maintained. no challenges with level lies.
Both the fairways and rough were lush with occasional bare patches. VERY good considering they will be over seeding soon.
The sand traps were just okay, the only part of the course not well above average. It is a challenge with the wind to keep an adequate amount of sand in traps on the north side of I-10.
The greens putted medium speed and were firm with few ball marks. Many greens had some pin placements where you could expect some fairly severe breaks.
If you missed the fairway, you hoped the rough caught it, because most holes have native areas that they play like a water hazard penalty where your ball is likely gone. There is also a generous amount of water hazards on this course, there are almost no holes where penalty shots are not just waiting to jump up and bite you on anything crooked.
The customer service was exceptional. The starter was very organized and on top of things, the groups were going off on time like clockwork. They have your name and tee time printed up waiting for you on the carts. There was a staff of cart people who transported your clubs from/to the parking lot and cleaned them after the round. Both the Marshall and drink cart were very present throughout the round. Complementary range balls are included with your golf fees. The carts were newer with advanced GPS including a video tour of each hole with tips on how to best play the hole.
What a hidden gem
This golf course is a bit hidden from view located behind a casino. It only has a trailer as a clubhouse (although it is part of the very large adjacent casino, so you could say that the hotel/casino serves as its clubhouse). The course is great shape for the middle of the summer. (they actually maintain the bunkers here unlike most courses in the desert that just seem to let the go). This course is visually stunning from nearly every tee-box. The green complexes are just awesome and the holes a treat to play. We were very well taken care of all the course employees who went over and above to make us feel welcome. I will be back to play here for sure, again and again. (It has an outstanding practice facility as well)
A must play great course
This course is in great shape any time of the year. Greens are challenging but don't break quite as much as they look. Tees and fairways are well kept. Staff is great and very friendly. The course can get a little backed up on weekends but the marshals keep it moving. You can pick any challenge you want. The tips are waaay back but the white and gold set up for us average guys and the lady's have two tees as well. If you live in the Valley or just visiting you must play this course. It's a little ride from Palm Springs but worth it.
