Nice layout

Nice course overall. Very well kept except for bunkers. Seems most people didn’t rake even though one was provided on the cart. Greens are a bit on slow side as well. Good experience and will definitely go back, post COVID.

Great course

Inadequate Marshaling. Waited too long for 5 holes in the heat. Came off the course at 2 pm and nobody was around and clubhouse closed.
Disappointing.

Incredible scenery and landscape

First time I played here staff was most friendly and accommodating. Most important was the course was great, challenging but not extreme. Lots of sand bunkers. Greens appear to have been recently arriated but puts rolled well. So far my favorite in the valley

greens were great!

played in under 4 hours, tee time was 6:50am.
Greens were faster than I expected, You need to be aware of the grain when putting here, balls rolled true and the fairways were also in great. If you're looking for good golf with good greens during the summer or whenever, come here. I might even come back tomorrow
From the moment I walked on the property, I was greeted and treated well by all.

Nice course

We played the Celebrity Course. It is mid July with COVID-19. So! The season is winding down and all the amenities were closed so all we got to experience was the course. I know it’s a five star resort for sure. I was just expecting more. The layout was good and challenging. The greens were starting to dry out. It was 115 that day but we teed off at 6:30 so we were done early. The maintenance of the course was down because they’re trying to save on expenses since all hotels and restaurants are closed here in Ca. I wish I could have experienced the true Indian Wells experience. But considering the pandemic we really enjoyed the challenge of the course. Play this course if you get the chance!!!!

Palm Springs in July

I booked a tee time for a Sunday morning at 6:50 and by the time we finished four hours later, the temperature was over 110. The course was in gorgeous condition. For $85 this was a great value.

Great course with spectacular views

Excellent course, played from the tips and was challenging without being too difficult.

Course in good condition and greens ran well if not a little slow.

Looking forward to the Players course in the future.

Summer Saturday Golf.

We got paired with 2 local gentlemen which were lots of fun. Course was in great condition, pace was 3.5 hrs for 18 on a weekend. NOT BAD. Carts were new, modern and up to date. During these COVID times it was a treat. Thanks to the staff and management for doing a great job.
