Golf Advisor: Top Courses in California
Not woman friendly
For a resort course I was surprised at the difficulty level for an average female golfer. The men I was playing with were playing the combo tees and on many holes we were teeing off from the same tees. I have never played at a course where the men’s combo tees were the forward tees.
Would not play this course again.
Frost freeze delay!
Great course, perfect day, slow play and frost delay led us to paying for a 1;30 tee time and only getting in 12 holes. Very disappointing.
Fun challenging Course to Play
The day we played was a tad foggy and damp, however those conditions did not effect play as the course is in excellent condition from Tee to green. It is Unfortunate that golfers do not fix their divot marks on the green. Just a freindly reminder to golfers, Be Kind and fix your divots.
Will definitely play again.
Great course, slow play
Great layout and condition, but pace of play is too slow to be enjoyable. Common to see 4 groups backed up on the par 5’s, especially on the back 9. Marshal not around much, but when we asked about the pace his reply was, “You’re right on pace, so I don’t know what you’d like us to do.” Our understanding from the staff is that the target pace is about 4.5 hours and there was no sense of need to do anything to make it any faster than that. As this is not aligned with my own opinion on pace of play, I doubt I’ll be back.
Rode the Greens (6621/71.5/130) first out with Gary. POP slightly over 3H under bright, calm conditions in the high 60's.
The tees were lush and level. Could have been great based on the lushness. However, I could tell from where the divots were on the par 3's where the tees had been in their last 3 rotations because almost none of the divots were filled/repaired.
Over seeded fairways were lush and played firm.
The maintained over seeded rough is thick and about 3". You hope it catches any offline shots, because the native stuff is a probable lost ball.
The large/deep sand traps looked good. Well raked with good quality sand. However, marked down for inconsistent depths.
The greens were firm and putted medium fast speed. The amount of pitch marks is very high here, you could fix 20 per green and barely make a dent in the total.
The customer service from everyone was very good. The drink cart came by several times and the Starter/Marshall out patrolling trying to keep people moving. GPS on the carts is good and the all grass practice range is excellent. Nice restaurant on site. Recommended.
My wife and I enjoyed our round very much. The staff were very accommodating. The course was in great shape and fun to play.
Play this course. Incredible shape. Not tricked up. My new #1 in the Palm Springs area.
I love this course! It works well for my game, and I always end up with a low score. The greens are challenging and have some interesting breaks. A nice shift from some of the other courses we have played in the valley.
Shadow ridge golf course
We’ve played this course before and the condition has gone down.
The tee boxes were iffy and the greens were ridiculously slow for a course of this caliber.
We won’t be spending our money here again
Great course to play your first time because it is all laid out in front of you with not much trickery. There are several holes with steep runoffs on the sides of greens but they didn't come into play too often on approach shots. Greens were slow because of recent over seeding but they were in great condition. A lot of undulations on the greens and some of the pins were in "sucker" positions but it was up to you to bite off what you wanted to chew. Definitely would play here again with the proper deal.
I felt like I was playing a pro level course through the fairways. They were lush, with perfect lies all the way through. The layout was interesting as almost every hole had a unique feel and sweep.The greens were undulating and challenging to read, but the pace of them was fairly slow. This might have been a problem, but I got there early and had plenty of time to adjust to the slow pace. Perhaps an 8 on the Stimpmeter, but that's just my guess.
Showdown at Shadow Ridge
Apparently it is only a couple of weeks after the over-seeding and the course is in awesome condition. We were very pleased, we can only imagine how nice this track will be in another week or two. Very friendly service, this course is on most “must play” list every time we visit Palm Springs!
What a beautiful setting!
I thought I was at a Country Club! This course is so well maintained. Beautiful slopes, lush grass, but a lot of bunkers. Can’t wait to play it again!
2nd group to tee off and followed a slow group for 8 holes with groups behind us backed up. Marshall finally came by and said they were 23minutes ahead of schedule. So what! The Marshall looked at the back up and finally told us to play through on #10.
Don’t think we’ll go back after that experience with the Marshall.
