Super slow pace of play.

Punched entire course. Was told but a rooster tail of sand while putting is a bit much. Was moved to other course by staff and then had a 6.5 hr round. I was beyond mad.

Valley course

First impressions really matter and the cart driver at the bag drop what a tool. Even the help at the pro shop make u feel like ur lucky to be there. I have golfed all over Palm Springs area and this is by far the rudest staff. The starter was pleasant tho.

And side note. We did the valley course and the amount of people and especially kids walking around on the course was extremely unnerving. While that may not be directly responsible of the course I’m sure the hotel doesn’t discourage against it.

Too bad course was in great shape. But won’t do it again because of this.

Great facilities, great staff

Staff, course and facilities are first rate. Greens were slow for a desert corse in May. Valley Course is as advertised, very playable for the average player.

Nice Day of Golf

Everything was great except the starter staff. Don’t really seem to care about you at all. I don’t think they understand that without us, the players, they wouldn’t have a job! I won’t go there again. Desert Willow is much nicer and the staff makes the day enjoyable. What’s even better is it’s just across the street!

You’d think J W could afford some sand!

Course visually beautiful. Unfortunately, we had to go around a honey golf foursome that had no idea about golf etiquette. Never saw a marshal and the beverage cart only once on a 90 degree day. Worst part, not a bit of sand in the many sand bunkers, just hard, gray mud. Very disappointing for a course associated with a world class hotel. This is high season in the desert, guys. Fix your course.

The Valley course is aptly named. Many slopes and undulations.

Great shape but very hilly with many steep slopes that often had the ball rolling into valleys, bunkers or water. The bunkers were in abundance. They were deep, with steep walls and very little sand.. A hand wedge might come in handy.
The course was well maintained, but there was very little margin for error, especially around the greens. Not your typical open desert course.
Staff were friendly and helpful .
