Enjoyment

Staff were friendly, BEST golf carts I have ever used and real good pace of play for a weekend (4h exactly).

Not overally long, some very interesting holes and was surprised with the very small greens.

Go play!

Rode the Blues (5827/67.3/120) as a single in 2H, 45M mid day using Forelinx. The weather was clear, breezy and in the low 100's.

Enjoyable shorter layout usually in good condition. They are just a few days from closing for fall over seeding, and the course is currently marginally playable. Basically hard pan from tee to green, the greens were at best average. Good customer service as always. Recommended AFTER fall over seeding.

Parched and dry

I wish they would have warned that the course has been left to die off in preparation for overseeding. Greens were in good condition, but otherwise played off of dead grass. Positive was that you get plenty of roll, and finished nine holes in just over an hour.

Greens maintained Rest of Course Dormant

Way to many courses in the area in good to great shape in the summer season. Don't waste your time.

Fairways hard and dry. Greens are in good shape but not consistent some fast and some slow

Bunkers are hard to understand, like they bought sand from several sources so each bunker plays differently and some were overfilled and some thin

Very narrow at times houses and road come into play if you spray the ball

The course IMO should hire an expert to give them input on how to set up/maintain their course

The course does have good potential and based on past reviews could be very playable when being maintained in season

Worst part was Front 9 twice Back 9 closed but not advised when booked

It's a Private Course so not sure if they're open to the Public in season

Great fit

Staff is very friendly as and accommodating. Ice machine and cold water available before your round and at the turn. Great job at placing water stations on the course as well. Make sure to take GPS with you as carts do not have them. I'm not a very good golfer so enjoyed the wide open fairways.

Rode the Blues (5827/67.3/120) as a single in 2H, 30M early morning using Forelinx. The weather was mid 90's and clear with a little breeze.

The tees are usually good here. Not today. Several were closed for over seeding and several others should have been closed for over seeding. The other dozen were flat with most divots already maintained.

The Bermuda fairways were mostly lush and were good to play from.

The mostly Bermuda rough was lush but overly tall. Good POP rough.

The traps were well maintained with fluffy sand. Nice to play from.

The Bermuda greens were smooth and putted medium speed. Firm, even well struck irons shots usually released. These greens are also on the small side, so approach shots barely offline can easily miss the greens.

The customer service, as always here, was excellent from everyone. No Drink cart out today. No GPS on the basic carts. This course would be easy to walk, very flat and most tees are close to the last green. Other than #17, a risk reward par 5 that runs around a lake, the layout will not wow you. Many holes would remind you of holes on dozens of other vintage Palm Springs courses. Recommended.

Love Woodhaven

We always play four or five times in the summer when we are in town. Staff is great. We can usually get around in under 3 hours. Of course, it is summer in the desert, but the community keeps the course up as well as possible in the heat. Hope to get out a few more times before we head back north.
