3.5 hours to play 18 on a Sunday, with a late morning start. CCCC is in the best shape I've seen it in the last few years.

Bottom of the barrel

Layout marginal, condition is not good. Fairways and rough are the same. Greens uncut and tees are uncut.this is an unmanaged course. People who live on it stop at their house along the Fairway to pick up drinks while you wait in the Fairway. People act like they have all day while you wait.

I’ll play here ANYTIME!!

What a wonderful surprise this course happens to be!! VERY good greens! And very fair, too :!! Lots of water and lots of bunkers make this medium length course a real challenge for the 10-30 handicapper. Maintenance, cart quality and a very good clubhouse restaurant added to an already excellent experience.

Staff

We were a hole and a half ahead of golfers that were behind else and staff came out and said we need to pick it up because we should have been on a certain hole by this time. We pointed out to them that we were not slowing anyone down and we are playing the course not a time limit

An infrequent player

Everyone who I interacted with was helpful.
The only manageable situation that I encountered was the lack their of controlling the rough.
Playing competitive courses shows they can make the round more enjoyable and faster when you’re not searching for your ball that’s just off the fairway due to the overgrowth of the rough.

Course was burned out but fun

The best part about the couse was the friendly pro shop staff.

Condition

Course was in terrible condition. It was worse than playing on a cow pasture. Damage from flood over a year ago has never been repaired. There were areas of sand that the cart barely was able to get though. Holes 1 & 10 were the worst no grass on the fairways at all.
It’s a shame to let the course be so bad and still allow play.
I played her before and it was not like this. I was appalled

Cathedral canyon

First time visitor but probably won’t be back for a while till they figure the damage out. 1 and 10 are playing as par 3s, the driving range no longer exists, and the course is more or less in disrepair compared to other courses in the area. Couple of the bright spots would be the greens are in pretty good shape, the carts are fast, and the course would be fun based on the layout. Unfortunately it has the feel of a place that’s playable but the has much room for improvement, i just hope they haven’t given up on it.. oh and there’s no cart girl so stock up beforehand.

Waste of time

I have nothing good to say about this course. First of all, there was no mention about shortening the 1st and the 10th tee box. Instead of expecting a par 5, both tee boxes were down to 156 yards..
Couldn’t play the 17th hole because they had the maintenance crew out there punching the greens and the flag wasn’t even there,, let alone them exknowledgeing that I was at the tee box.
Overall, if anyone ask about this course, I would highly recommend NOT to play here..

Got what I paid for

I paid $22 for a Golf Now hot deal and got my money’s worth. That said, the 1st and 10th holds are essentially out of play and are both par 5 holes that have been converted into par 3s. And there was no mention or warning online or by the pro in the shop upon check in. The layout is okay, there is a lot of water and a few memorable holes. But the overall conditioning was sub-standard. One of the greens was completely sanded. The cart paths are falling apart, the on-course bathrooms are closed and signage between holes is lacking. Even the parking lot had the feel of a ghost town upon arrival. The website photos show a golf course in its glory days, but after playing it, those days seem long ago. If you’re looking for rock bottom prices for 18 holes in Palm Springs then this is the place for you. But for twice the price, you can surely find something that offers a much greater golfing experience. Again, you get what you pay for. Buyer beware.

They're dealing with flood damage to #s 1 & 10

I would wait until the Fall of 2020 before I played again.

One of the tougher tracks in the valley.

This year in the best shape ever. But now they are laying off of the water and letting the course dry out...go dormant- they call it!
