Rode the Purple tees (6507/71.2/128) in 3H twilight. The weather was clear, calm and 110.

Doesn't get the notoriety of it's sister Firecliff course, but I like this layout more with each round. 18 solid holes of golf. More water than Firecliff, and some risk/reward holes that provide players options. Definitely one of my most favorite places to play 36 holes.

The tees were lush and excellent to play from.

The fairways are mostly lush and play firm.

The rough is mostly lush and not very tall. Nice to play from.

The sand traps were nicely maintained with thick sand.

The greens putted better than Firecliff. Medium to medium fast, firm and reasonably smooth for Bermuda.

Nice GPS on carts. Excellent customer service on every visit here. No drink cart person this afternoon. Excellent all grass driving range with a nice chipping practice green. Highly recommended.

Rode the Purple tees (6676/72.1/136) in 3H, 15m midday. The weather was clear, fairly calm and around 110.

The tees were excellent, level, lush with few divots.

The fairways are lush, firm and really nice to play from.

The rough is lush and mowed down. Good POP rough, not penal. Generally nice to play from.

The waste bunkers were firm and not as well maintained as the greenside traps. The greenside traps had good quality white sand and were nicely maintained.

The greens are transitioning back to Bermuda. Firm, somewhat bumpy and medium speed.

The all grass driving range is included and above average. Nice chipping area. Customer Service always excellent here from when you drop your clubs off out front to when you pick them up out front. No cart person today. Good GPS on carts. Plenty of ice/water stations on the course. Highly recommended.

Rode the Purple tees (6676/72.1/136) in 3.5H twilight. The weather was clear, fairly calm and around 105.

Picturesque emerald green layout with a generous amount of white sand, nativescape and water to keep players on their toes. From tee to green, the course was in excellent condition. The greens are transitioning back to Bermuda and were more spotty than the rest of the course.

The tees were excellent, level, lush with few divots.

The fairways are lush, firm and really nice to play from.

The rough is lush and mowed down. Good for POP, not penal and nice to chip from.

The greenside traps had good quality white sand and were well maintained. The waste bunkers are firm and much more hit/miss.

The Bermuda greens were just okay. Firm, fairly smooth and medium speed. They are about to be aerated and they look like they need it.

Customer Service exceptional from when you drop your clubs off out front to when you pick them up out front. Cart gal out making the rounds. All grass driving range is included and above average. Good GPS on carts. Plenty of ice/water stations on the course. One of my favorite Palm Springs area public layouts, highly recommended.

Rode the Blacks (6782/71.6/122) as a single in 2H, 45M twilight. The weather was clear, breezy and 109. Adding 450 yards from the Blues I normally play in a consistent 1-2 club wind significantly adds to the challenge.

Mark and Keith's reviews from Saturday are spot on. Cimarron is reasonably wide open, flat with few forced carries, not overly tough for the average golfer. I enjoy this course as a change of pace, a solid mid level alternative for the Palm Springs area, usually in decent shape.

Tees, fairways and rough all have good coverage, semi lush with a few brown/thin areas due to the heat.

The traps had decent sand, but contain too many rocks and unraked areas.

The greens were firm and putted medium speed with few ball marks. A few are beginning to get crusty with the heat. Several fringes have been punched recently.

The customer service was good, quick efficient check-in. All grass driving range. Plenty of water stations on the course. No drink cart or Marshall, I only saw one other 2some playing this afternoon. Recommended.

Rode the Blacks (3020/54.6/98) as a single in 2H, 15M midday in bright, breezy conditions close to 110. Links style executive layout with an excellent mixture of holes. Very fun short course with 17 par 3's and one short par 4. The par 3's feature a couple holes over 200 from the Blacks, with the shortest at 118 with a good mixture of lengths in between. I used most irons in my bag.

The tees were semi lush with some brown spots due to the heat. Decently maintained with not as many divots as you would expect with 17 par 3's.

Fairways do not come into play much, but they were semi lush with some brown spots.

The rough was semi lush, mowed down with good coverage and some brown spots.

The sand traps were below average in both maintenance and the quality of the sand. Many waste areas if you get wide of the rough can come into play.

The Bermuda greens were firm and showing signs of the heat. Medium speed with few ball marks.

GPS on the basic carts is to the front/middle/back of the green only. All grass driving range. The customer service was good, quick efficient check-in with the pro shop. No drink cart. Few sand traps, #18 is the only hole with a water hazard. Chipping is over and around mounds, so you have to be creative &/or precise. Nice place to work on your irons. Recommended.

Rode the Greens (6621/71.5/130) mid day. POP dragged on the front, things spaced out and moved better on the back, overall 4H, 15M. The weather was in the low 100's, sunny with a little breeze. Seemed hotter and slower than it actually was?

The course is in the 7-8/10 range from tee to green. The greens are still recovering from their recent aeration.

The tees were mostly good. Level with good coverage and only minor divot damage.

The fairways were mostly lush to semi lush and played firm. There are a few hard pan areas caused by the heat that had been recently aerated that should be GUR.

The maintained rough is not very penal here, mostly lush to semi lush and not overly tall. You hope it catches any offline shots, because the native stuff is a probable lost ball.

The large/deep sand traps were mostly well maintained with good quality sand. You need to avoid the fairway traps here more than most courses. If you get in the green side traps, it will be a tough sandie.

The greens were firm, somewhat bumpy and medium speed. Improved from when I played here earlier, but still another week before they will be good again.

The GPS on the carts is good and the all grass practice range is excellent. Nice restaurant on site. 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. Recommended, one of my favorite public layouts in the greater Palm Springs area.

Rode the Blacks (6312/69.9/123) in about 2.5H as a single, teeing off around noon. $10 "Hot Deal" on GN. The weather was sunny and breezy in the mid 90's.

Playing Mesquite is like playing 2 completely different courses. To get to the front 9 you have to cross a busy street. The front 9 is very poorly maintained, a 2/10, and that may be generous. The back 9 is on the same side of the street as the clubhouse. Much better maintained, more in the 5/10 range.

Back 9 tees were semi lush and mowed high. Front 9 tees ranged from hard pan and thin to semi lush. Numerous tees could use leveling.

Most back 9 fairways were semi lush and taller than the rough on many courses. Most front 9 fairways were thin with tight lies.

The fairway rough on both sides is mostly thin, with a few areas that has lost ball rough. The rough around the greens is lush, mowed down and very nice to play from. Most of the lushest grass on the course is within 15 yards of the greens.

The sand traps are poorly maintained. Most have grass and weeds in them, many had burrowing animal holes and they are not regularly raked.

The back 9 Bermuda greens were at best average. Firm, bumpy & medium speed with a few bad spots. The front 9 Bermuda greens were poor to terrible. The first few greens were as much hard pan as grass with large bare areas.

Nicely maintained, older clubhouse. Basic carts, no GPS. No drink cart/Marshall. Numerous water stations on the course. The course was practically deserted. They would be better served closing the front 9 for the summer and working on it, because that 9 would rank in the bottom worst 10 maintained 9's I have ever played in 45 years of golfing. The back 9 is much better maintained and much more playable. The bridges are in poor condition and need to be refurbished. Fun layout that has potential if they got the playing conditions up to even an average level.

Rode the Blacks on the West/South combo (6391/70.1/121) as a single in around 2H on a GN "Hot Deal" for less than $15. The weather was sunny, fairly calm and slightly above 100.

The condition of the tees was hit and miss. Some were nice and semi lush, others were ragged/thin. Several were crowned and could use leveling.

The fairways were semi lush and usually nice to play from. There are some thin patches, almost hard pan from the heat.

The rough was semi lush and was not overly penal. Good POP rough and good to chip out of.

The sand traps were decently maintained with fine grain, thick sand.

The greens were very firm and putted medium speed. Fairly bumpy with few ball marks.

The customer service from the pro shop & starter/cart person were excellent, as has been the case on every visit here. Grass range looked decent. No drink cart, but there was an operational snack stand at the turn. Recommended.

Rode the Blacks (6312/69.9/123) in slightly more than 2H as a single mid day. The weather was hot, sunny and breezy.

Mesquite is classic, old school Palm Springs in layout/style. Some of the smallest greens you will ever play on a regulation course. Five par 5's, six par 3's, seven par 4's = par 71 layout. The par 5's are scoreable, the par 3's are challenging and the par 4's are a good mixture. The layout is fun.

However, the conditions are poor overall. Parts of the course are lush. Much of the course is scruffy/playable. And other parts of the course are terrible. The back 9 is maintained MUCH better than the front 9.

Some tees were lush and mowed high. Others hardpan and thin. Many needed leveling.

Most front 9 fairways were thin with tight lies. Most back 9 fairways were lush and taller than the rough on many courses.

The fairway rough is mostly thin. The rough around the greens is lush, mowed down and nice to play from. There are areas that have not been mowed since ??? that you will have to step on your ball to find it.

The sand traps had mostly decent sand. However, from a maintenance perspective, they were a disaster. Most has grass and weeds in them, many had burrowing animal holes and they had not been recently raked.

The back 9 greens were mostly mediocre. Firm, bumpy & medium speed with a few bad spots. The front 9 greens were poor to terrible. Many had large hard pan areas.

Basic carts, no GPS and forget on course customer service employees. I booked a $10 12:06 tee time through GN that is their LAST tee time of the day. I had employees watching me from hole 10 on and wanting to know if I planned on playing all 18 when I was on 15 green. They obviously wanted to go home, and I was done well before 3pm? I only saw a couple of other singles playing. To ride a quick 18 and get some on course practice is the only way I could recommend under these conditions.

Rode the Greens (6621/71.5/130) with caligolfer1031, adigitalg87 and HmtGolfGuy in 4H, 20M early morning. We then broke for lunch and came back for an afternoon round. The weather was in the mid 90's, muggy and sunny with a little breeze. Thanks to Greg, Gus and Ron for a fun 36 holes!

One of my favorite Palm Springs area public layouts. Fairly tame from tee to green if you can avoid dozens of large fairway bunkers. No significant forced carries and not an overly significant amount of water hazards. However, the nuances of the green complexes are well above average in difficulty. Except for the greens, the course was in pretty good shape but beginning to show signs of the almost daily 100 degree temps that has been prevalent locally.

The tees were mostly good. Level with good coverage with only minor divot damage.

The fairways were lush to semi lush with a few hard pan areas caused by the heat that had been recently aerated.

The rough was mostly lush to semi lush and not overly penal.

The sand traps were mostly well maintained with good quality sand.

The greens were poor, showing visible signs of their recent aeration. Firm, bumpy and slow.

The customer service from everyone was excellent. Marshall out patrolling trying to enforce POP and the drink cart gal was making the rounds. GPS on the carts is good and the all grass practice range is excellent. Definitely recommended, but the greens are at least another 10 days from being smooth and medium fast again.

Rode the Blacks on the South/North combo (6343/69.2/124) with Caligolfer1031 in 3H on a GN "Hot Deal" for less than $20. The weather was in the low 100's, sunny and fairly calm.

The heat has really taken a toll on RLP in the past few weeks. RLP was in excellent condition when I played here in early April. Today, it's still very playable but getting rough around the edges. The Bermuda is taking over but not yet 100%.

Ted Robinson Jr. 1977 design. As you would expect from "The king of water features", there are plenty of water hazards that you have to play over, mostly on approach shots. A few grip/rip it holes, but many holes have OB down at least one side if not both. The fairways are not that narrow and are lined with hundreds of towering palm trees. However, if you miss the fairway by more than a few yards you are in trouble on this course with few exceptions.

The condition of the tees was all over the place. Some were nice and semi lush, others looked like they had been scalped. Several were crowned and could use leveling.

85% of the fairways were semi lush and nice to play from. The other 15% was thin patches, almost hard pan.

The rough was usually lush and was not overly penal. Just low enough that the ball often sat up.

The sand traps were decently maintained with thick, fine grain sand.

The greens were fairly bumpy with few ball marks. Very firm, they putted medium speed. Not nearly as good as my last visit here.

The customer service from the pro shop & starter/cart person were excellent, they had me out before my tee time. Grass range looked decent. No drink cart, but there was an operational snack stand at the turn. Overall, these are 27 enjoyable holes of golf. I enjoy playing the North 9 the most and the West 9 the least of the three 9's. Fun course(s), Recommended.

Rode the Blues (6711/72.9/135) in 3H as a single. The weather was clear, breezy and well north of 100.

The Bermuda tees were level, lush and very nicely maintained.

The Bermuda fairways were lush, mowed close and firm. Excellent to play from even though there are a few brown areas.

The Bermuda rough was mostly lush. The ball usually sat up, not that penal even though it is thick.

Several traps had sprinkler runoff puddles or large mud areas. The fairway traps were playable, firm is preferable there. However, the green side traps are a completely different story. They were mostly raked but still in poor shape. Trying to hit off thin or hardpan lies to rock hard greens? I putted out of the last 2 green side traps I was in over a lip. That was by FAR my best chance of getting a ball on or near the green out of these things.

The Bermuda greens are very grainy, making putts bumpy and very uneven in speed. Hard, not firm, you may make a dent with a high iron approach. Mediocre.

Nice GPS on the carts, complementary bottled water provided and range balls on a 1st class grass practice facility are all a ++. The customer service was excellent from everyone encountered. Tee to green the course is in excellent condition. Everything about this place was top notch, except for the greens and especially the sand traps. I always look forward to using my accumulated Troon Reward points to play here as many times as possible during the off season.
