Greedy

Very poor quality management, they stuffed as many people as they could on the course, did not have marshals to help speed up play. On the first four holes their were three groups waiting. Our tee time was at 1:00 we were called to the tee at 1:15 ( not bad ) by 5:00 we had played fourteen holes.then marshal came out collecting the flags and said the course is closed. It seems that all they can about is the $$$, they obviously don't care about the players experience think two or three times before playing this course after noon.

Very slow pace of play

The course is in great shape. We booked on golf now and ourntee time was 10:00am. When we got the the pro shop they had us down for 10:24. And regrettably there was a frost delay so we finished much later than planned. We waited on every hole.we won’t play here again.

Wash out

Really enjoyed the course once again.greens were fantastic. Fairways were really good. Sand decent. I do miss the bathrooms on the back nine. One has been removed and the other looks permanently closed. Both water jugs were empty also. The 1st hole and the 10th hole have both been reduced to par threes instead of par fives because of the recent floods. They have done a great job keeping all 18 holes open. I would expect a reduced rate because of the conditions. Please consider some pricing options.

Challenging course in good condition

I have played this course multiple times, I saw some of these reviews and have to say that this course is a fun and challenging course for decent golfers. The course is not simple and has a lot of hazards. I find it very enjoyable.

Under-whelmed

Had difficulty finding bag drop area, no signage or indications. Made wrong turn and had to drive around lot twice. Course needed attention, partially grassed areas around greens hard ground, wedge shots hard to play.

Poor signage in Course often leading to not knowing where next tee box was. Fees were cheap but would rather pay more for better conditions.

Ok golf .

The course seems a little tired, greens good, fairways could use a little more attention, spotty in area on quite a few fairways. The bunkers could use some sand instead of what I thought was a mix of loose dirt with little if any sand mixed in. Ok course for the right price.

Better courses in Palm Springs area

First of all, we didn't start on time. There were no carts available. Also, no water on the course. I wish they would have told us that. Course was not in the best shape.

Great day of golf !!!

Only complaint is they double booked our tee time so we ended up having to wait for a cart and were about 25 minutes behind are scheduled tee time so we had to pick up on 18 because of darkness. We Got paired with some really nice people they were a pleasure to Golf with !! We really enjoyed the layout of the course and the staff are very friendly and helpful we will be back for sure!!!

Tired Old Dame

The course was more challenging if you haven't played it before. Narrow fairways, lots of lakes. It is an old private course in need of someupdating.

Hackers made play frustrating.

Players ahead of the wife and I need to take lessons before attempting to play and hold up the pace of play.

I can not believe this course.

I was there for opening day and there was hardly anyone there. Poor management for such a good place to play. The course was in great shape and very challenging due to the many water hazards and sand traps. I will be back for sure.

Much better than last time!

They’ve been throwing some money at this course and it shows. Greens and fairways in way better condition than a year ago. Still work to do on things like bathrooms on the course, and the course still only gets “average” but the will to do better definitely seems there. Great value for a very enjoyable day.
