COVID Golf

Courses are just reopening and it was just great to get out there and hit a ball around. Unfortunately for the golfers in La Quinta the city has mandated that everyone wear masks while golfing. In 100+ degree heat! This made for some stifling conditions. I'm an Infectious Disease nurse and we had an MD in our group as well. Once we cleared the clubhouse we doffed our masks. About the fifth hole a marshall came out and told us that someone living on the course had called them to complain that we weren't masked. I don't know...perhaps they were afraid of getting infected from 150 yards away? So I asked if the ones who called were the 2 males that were walking on the course trespassing without a mask or was it someone from the 3 separate private golf carts we saw on public streets with no masks? Anyway, can't fault the course for upholding ridiculous regulations passed by policy makers who have no clue what their talking about. The course was in fantastic shape. Of course the on/off course amenities are suffering since nothing is open except the golf course and there are no beverage carts out on the course. This was my first time playing this one and I really enjoyed the company, the course, the pace. I'll be coming back for sure.

Cart Path Only

It actually would have been a great day to just walk the course. I wish they had let us. I didn't see the need to stay cart path only. The Marshall came by once and referred to being 8 minutes behind. The group was playing great. We even had an eagle out there. But the idea of just pushing a golf cart down the path, ruined it for me. I had to grab about 6 clubs at a time. I didn't even feel I had room to take my distance finder. Numerous times I was in the fairway or a bunker, totally on the wrong side of the fairway from the cart path. I was playing incredibly well, the day was perfect, and I was not enjoying myself like I had hoped.

After the rains don’t play

I’ve played here around 5-6 times so pretty disappointed as previously would be 5 stars across the board. There were heavy rains the day before leaving the course in near unplayable conditions even though we played mid afternoon. Water hazards grew to an extra 10-20 yards from where they normally are, sand traps were muddy, full of water. Unfortunately the clubhouse never informed us of the conditions nor cart paths only until after we paid. Too bad they weren’t honest with players to set proper expectations and maybe offer a discount.

PGA West Greg Norman Course

Went through Golf Now - paid $169 US for a 10:30 am tee time — so not worth it. $69 ok - even $99 but not $169. Bunkers were average at best - fairways were fabulous - only 1 water bottle each, had to wet our own towels - again, for $69, no problem but for $169........ Also had to load our own clubs into our car at the end of the round.

Absolutely beautiful conditions. Best of the 10 courses I played in the last 10 days in the Palm Springs area. My only slight complaint was that the greens were quite firm. Having said that, firm always translates to smooth... Probably 11.5 on the stimp the course is easier then it was 20 years ago. Cleaned out most of the junk in the desert so we didn’t lose every ball hit offline. They’ve also added some grass around the bunkers. Wonderful experience!

Great desert style layout.

Very nice staff.
Excellent greens and fairways in great shape. Fairways wide enough to land your drive.
Plays fare with the correct amount of risk reward.
Small issue - GPS was not set to current flag positions. But very good system otherwise.

Very enjoyable experience!

Played the course solo in the early morning and really enjoyed it. Got great advice from the starter about staying out of the bunkers and water...wish I had listened! The pro shop staff and starter were absolutely fantastic. Beautiful course, a little pricey, but definitely recommended.

Splendid day

We've been out in Palm Springs for 2 weeks playing alternate days at well known courses.
The Greg Norman course at PGA West is definitely a highlight. The course has a very Australian feel, down to the angled bunkers & bottle brush trees. It is in excellent shape, the staff were very helpful & friendly & we played in 4 hours 15 minutes, right on schedule.
We were lucky enough to catch a hot deal on Golf Now 30 days out, so the price was great.
Highly recommend

Punishing bunkers.

Our group really enjoyed playing this course. Condition excellent. Lots of punishing bunkers, you need to stay out of to score. Found the back a bit easier than the front. Most bunkers required a lay up or out sideways they are so deep. Fair course though, would play again.
