Excellent Course with Near Perfect Conditions

I loved this course. It will be a new go to for me. The facilities are excellent minus the lack of a driving range. There are nets though. That being said, this isn't the type of course you come to practice at. Excellent layout, near perfect conditions and just a great feeling from every tee. Can't wait to go back.

Fun course

We played this course recently and our whole group had a good time. The pace of play was very slow but the scenery made up for it. Some holes were on the long side but the fairways were wide and forgiving. Overall I would play here again and recommend this course to friends.

Favorite course in Palm Springs area, always in good shape, and no boring holes, if you are here for the Winter, get the players card and enjoy.

great course and staff

Course was a really nice course and in excellent condition. The entire staff -pro shop, starter, manager, player assistant- were all very pleasant, welcoming and went out of their way to make sure you had a very good experience. The green fees were very reasonable. Highly recommend you play this course if in the Palm Springs area.

Great Course

Course was in excellent condition- tee boxes, fairways, and greens were lush and well manicured. It’s pretty wide open with nice elevation changes - not too much trouble on the front nine, but water and bunkers come into play on the back nine. The only possible negative is the courses proximity to the airport noise, but that’s a minor point. Would play again when I’m in Palm Springs.

Great deal

Love the course design, layout and condition. For what the price is we are actually saving at least 25% compared to similar courses. The restaurant is the best and also price of meal is very reasonable. Overall it is an excellent experience except for the slowness in play probably due to some overbooking and not enough time allowed for between each tee time. Otherwise, it was a 100% enjoyable experience.
