Nice layout

The course design was interesting and sometimes seemed tight playing it for first time. Greens were slow compared to other courses I’ve played here but they were true. From a visual standpoint not one of the more speaking courses for the money

Great reputation but ...

The fairways were immaculate, the greens were 12 on the stimpmeter so very very fast. The layout was ordinary. We much prefer the Celebrity course. The rough out side the fairways was unimpressive. Service and staff were wonderful. The starter was very helpful. Be ready for several bunkers in the middle of the fairway. My recommendation is to play Celebrity instead.

Great experience

We loved the course and the clubhouse. The layout is a bit challenging for a first-timer, only because you are not sure where to hit the ball on some holes. I wish I could play number one again, I just didn't know for sure how much everything rolled off the fairway to the right.
The bunkers were perfect, the greens firm and fast, and the people were exceptional. The only gripe was the food truck breakfast burrito, which was our only option at 10:30. Cold, old eggs... Yuk.

Strong Winds

Really nice course with beautiful vistas. Somewhat different than the typical desert courses with its trees & pines, Great shape with a very accomodating staff. Parking can be at a premium. I ended up using valet. Super windy day with sand blowing all over. Fast greens.

Perfect Day

The Indian Wells course is our favorite in the Palm Springs area. The course is 5 star - great condition, moderately challenging, very helpful staff, true greens and fun layout. No two holes are the same. Lots of water stations and bathrooms. And course personnel act like they truly care about you. Only complaint is that the course turned a lovely putt putt course into a money making enterprise that essentially blocks golfers who like a little something different from playing the putt putt course. But that little course is different from the two championship course which are simply fantastic.

Solid Course, Wonderful Greens

Players Course is wonderful manicured for December, fairways and greens in excellent shape, greens run true and fairly quick (not riduculous). The rough is dormant and yellow, fine by me. But with the dormant rough, any ball struck near the edge of the water or desert, most likely will roll into those areas. The course(s) (36 hole facility) play among themselves and not through a neighborhood. Beverage cart came around pretty often and the staff was very friendly. We finished in 4 hrs 30 min, which is also their recommended time.

Great Morning

The course is pristine. Greens a bit slow but ran true. T boxes excellent as were the fairways. It was busy but we finished in under 4 hours.
Staff in pro shop , on course and in the bar were very helpful and welcoming. Play it once or twice each year when visiting. Does not disappoint

Players course highly recommended.

Highly recommend the Players course. Fairways are great. The course was just re-opened after reseeding. Cart path only. I found the staff to be fantastic. Top notch landscaping. Lots of ice and water available on course. Cart girl was great too. Ate at the Vue for the Happy Hour after golf. Great food & drinks!

Indian Wells Players Course

Indian Wells players course is a very well layed out facility that will appeal to the golfer wanting to try a course that is very long and very challenging from the tips. There are several long par 4s that will test a golfers long iron striking ability. The greens were in good shape for this time of year. The staff was very accommodating and helpful with my visit. This is a world class venue that does a good job providing a memorable experience for their visitors. Would definitely recommend this to anyone in the Palm Springs or Indian Wells area!

Awesome course and staff

Played 4 times this week on Players course. Celebrity course closed right now. Staff was super friendly, great merchandise in shop and cart service was always out and about. Food service is limited during the remodel so plan accordingly.
