Beware of the tournaments

We were enjoying a solid round until we came up on a juniors tournament on the back 9. We were unable to finish our round because the pace of play ground to a halt with holes taking longer than 30 minutes behind the juniors. We had been told that there was a scramble tournament ahead of us but that They had made sure we had enough room between us and the tournament do you have a reasonable pace. I think it’s incumbent on the course to notify players that there could be a problem when the circumstances occur. Very disappointed.

Boutique Couse

Give the score card a really good review before you book this location. While the condition of the course was beyond perfect, it's short. The Celebrity course is a single par 5 single par 3 per nine, and the whites only play 6000 yards.

I normally look at slope and rating as well as the card a lot closer, but having been in a rut and not playing new course lately, I was out of practice at paying attention.

The range is nice off the grass and piles of balls at the tee, excellent warm up and excellent practice facility.

Definably narrow, you won't be scoring spraying it off the tee and expect to score . if you're longer than 220 off the tee, play the tips. Greens are brutal tough, 14 plus stimp!

Carts are a bit dodgy, I was given a half dead cart that starting failing half way through the front nine, and had issues climbing hills. Called the pro shop for a replacement that never found me. That and the onboard ball and club scrubber was dry because the drain plug was gone, and the cooler was empty on a 93º day.

Lastly, this is a resort facility, not a TPC experience by any stretch. LOTS of bling LOTS of big money catering going on here. Also, plenty of tour-wanna-bees that won't let you play through even if you ask! Twosomes that play slower the foursomes. sooooo slow for a short course, should be round in 3 hours--you'll be lucky finish in 5!

The huge redeeming quality of this location is the on course staff. The starters and marshals are amazing folks that really care about your experience and making it as excellent as possible.

Best Experience in the Valley

Challenging layout with a little bit of elevation change. Outstanding conditions. Friendliest staff around. One reminder to all: fix your ball marks (and someone else’s). I fixed at least 3 fresh marks on nearly every green.

Excellent golf experience

Wanted to play a nice course during my vacation.
This did not disappoint in any way. Courteous and friendly staff, a great course and amenities.
Took many pictures of the scenery while playing.
Lunch at the clubhouse was good too.
Will definitely come back.

Celebraty Course at Indian Wells

The course was in excellent condition. Typical for public courses, there were unrepaired ball marks, but they are easily fixed. The greens and fairways were in excellent condition. Pace of play was goo. Our foursome finished in 4 hours and 5 minutes. I was a single, and my playing partners were great. A luck of the draw. Indian Wells is one of my favorite courses. It is a little pricey, so go anytime you find a reduced fare. All amenities off the course are top flight.

Absolutely Stunning

Played the Celebrity Course on our trip celebrating my 40th birthday and it was phenomenal. Despite being wet the previous week or so, the course was in spectacular. Everybody from the valets to the pro staff to Mark the starter, was as friendly as could be. We teed off at 1:30 p.m. and finished our last hole as it was getting pretty dark around 5:45 p.m.

Course was in spectacular shape, tee boxes, rough and fairways were plush and the greens were great--rolled beautifully. Easily one of the top-3 courses I've ever played. I can't say enough about this course and hope to play it again in the near future.

Way to short and easy

The condition of the course was good but even from 6600 yard tees it played really short. Drove the green on the 250 par 4. Other pars 4 played driver and 75 yard pitch shot. Not sure we’re they come up with their distances.
