A Treasure on a Day When Few Options Were Available!

More and more courses in the Coachella Valley are closing so it was just a treat to be able to play. Course was reasonably busy, but we finished in four hours. It’s was in great shape. They even had cart girls on the course. No ball washers, water or rakes (To be expected) on the course. Staff was attentive and friendly. Well worth the $69 it cost to play.

Always So Green

Haven't played JW in a couple of seasons. Every time I go I enjoy the beauty of the property. Course was in great condition with the exception of inconsistent greens. They were a little dry with varying rolling speeds. I enjoy this course every time I play it.

Average Course

Fairways in great shape. Good layout but greens are awful. They are slow and bumpy.

The starters at both courses have terrible attitudes. We played today at 7:30 am.
