Played the Blues (6348/71.3/130) with GDR23 & Matt in 4H, 45M, barely beating darkness using an AD Underpar voucher.

Schmidy/Curley design that is a solid, challenging layout. Not an overly tight layout, but you cannot miss most fairways here by much without bringing penalty strokes (lost ball bushes & native overgrowth) into play. A couple of risk/reward par 4's that longer hitters can have a go at the green.

The tees were a mixed bag. Most of the par 4/5 tees were well maintained and lush. Most of the par 3 tees were in mediocre condition with lots of divots.

The fairways were mostly lush and well maintained.

The rough was lush and could be penal. When the ball settled down, it was whack a short iron out and get it back in play time.

The sand traps were the only part of the course not above average, Lots of rocks in the fairway bunkers. Greenside bunkers had inconsistent depths but were otherwise well maintained.

The large green complexes were nicely designed with mounds, slopes and contours to challenge you whether you were on or off the greens. The poa annua greens putted medium to medium fast speed. Slightly better condition overall than the Legends 18 IMO.

This would be a very challenging course to walk, numerous tees were a hike from the last green. The carts have GPS where you can check yardages to bunkers, hazards etc. All grass range and range balls included with the UP deal were a +.

The customer service was excellent. Had lunch before the round, both the food and selection were good.

Recommended for a fun, decently maintained and challenging layout.

Played the Blues (6394/71.0/127) with GDR23 & Matt using an AD Underpar voucher. Fun, relaxed round @ 4H, 15M in mild fall conditions.

Schmidt/Curley design that has a good mixture of shorter. risk reward holes and longer holes. Overall this is a challenging layout that is a fun course to play. I slightly prefer this course over the sister Champions layout.

The tees were a mixed bag. Most of the par 4/5 tees were well maintained and reasonably lush. Most of the par 3 tees were smaller, more humpbacked and generally in not as good of condition.

The fairways were mostly lush and well maintained.

The rough was lush and thick enough to catch even shorter irons, but not ridiculously high. On the occasions when the ball settled down, it was whack a short iron out and get it back in play time.

The sand traps were well manicured. However, the sand depth and quality was all over the place. The waste bunkers were more hard packed but had some large rocks in them. Only part of the course that was below average.

The poa annua greens were firm, generally smooth and medium to medium fast speed. They putted nice and held approach shots very well. The large green complexes were well designed with mounds, slopes and contours to challenge you whether you were on or off the greens. 13 & 14 were in poorer condition that the other greens, 14 had noticeable bare spots.

This would be a very challenging course to walk, numerous tees were a hike from the last green. Not an overly tight layout, but you cannot miss most fairways here by much without bringing penalty strokes (lost ball bushes & native overgrowth) into play. The carts have GPS where you can check yardages to bunkers, hazards etc.

The customer service was excellent. All grass range and range balls included with the UP deal were a +.

Played the Blues (6323/70.6/127) as a 2some in around 3H in sunny, warm, fairly calm conditions.

Enjoy this fun Ted Robinson design. The layout is not overtly tight overall, but there are places you have to be precise around and over water or you can incur penalty strokes in bunches. Up/down rolling hills with many raised green complexes and numerous tiered greens plus a generous amount of water & sand to avoid.

The course was in solid late summer condition. Bermuda Tees were mostly good, level with good coverage. Bermuda fairways mostly lush and well maintained. Bermuda rough mostly mowed down but still difficult to play out of because of the thickness. Sand quality was good but the depths were inconsistent. The Bermuda greens consistently putted medium speed and were firm. Hardly any ball marks because of the firmness, they rolled nicely.

The customer service was excellent from all encountered. Cart gal out making numerous rounds, ample water stations every few holes on the course. Better than average course for the greater Palm Springs area. Recommended.

Played the Blues (69.6/117/6328) with 140ver in slightly less than 4H. There was no one behind us, so we hit numerous practice shots/putts trying to stay about a 1/2 hole behind the slower 2some in front of us.

The round started in sunny, fairly calm conditions. Then we had 30-40 mph consistent wind in the middle of the round. It had settled down to what by then seemed like a moderate 2 club wind by the time we were finishing.

From tee to green, the course has been scalped for over seeding, they close in a few days. In fact, they were over seeding a couple of holes as we played.

The hard, dry conditions coupled with the extreme wind made for some challenging and sometimes laughable shots. Hit a high 6I over a green from well over 200 yards straight downwind, then came back and a well hit 8I was well short of another green... from 105 yards playing straight into the teeth of the wind.

Bermuda tees, fairways and rough were dry and scalped pending over seeding. Scruffy but playable. Sand traps were poorly maintained. Good quality sand, but very inconsistent depths, I'm sure they have challenges keeping it in the traps when it's that windy. Bermuda greens were still okay. A little bumpy, medium speed, they held their lines well with firm, bold putts.

OB right and the wash left is a common theme as you play around the courses rectangular footprint. Fun layout that is not too challenging. Enough sand, water and desertscape areas to keep things interesting. No frills course, have never seen an on course drink cart, usually no Marshall. Plenty of water stations on the course.

Customer service very good in the pro shop and with the cart attendants. Usually a good budget alternative in the greater Palm Springs area. However, not recommended until they re-open after over seeding.

Played the Blacks (54.6/98/3020) with 140ver in 3H in bright, breezy conditions.

Very fun short course with 17 par 3's and a short par 4. Course was in nice late summer shape. Tees had good coverage, especially considering most players are taking a divot. Fairways do not come into play much, but they were semi lush. Rough was semi lush with good coverage. Traps were a mixed bag, decent sand but some had not been maintained recently. Many waste areas if you get wide of the rough can come into play. Greens were surprisingly good. Few ball marks because of their firmness. They putted medium speed and were consistent, holding high approaches with a little run out.

Customer service was good here. No drink cart. Few sand traps, I think #18 is the only hole with a water hazard. We practically had the short course to ourselves and had a good time hitting practice shots when we felt like it. Nice place to work on your irons. A couple holes over 200 from the tips, with the shortest at 118, and a good mixture of lengths in between. I used almost every iron at least once. Fun course, recommended.

Played the Blues (6381/70.5/127) with 140ver & Hmtgolfguy in about 3.5H under sunny, fairly calm conditions. Thanks to Mike & Ron for a fun time!

Typical Ted Robinson design. Up/down rolling hills with some raised green complexes featuring numerous tiered greens. Nice water features with a generous amount of water to avoid. Also a decent amount of sand to avoid. You cannot spray the ball around too much, but Palm is not overtly tight. Enjoyed the fun layout.

Maintenance has the course mowed close and dried out in preparation to over seed in a few days. Playable but scruffy. Bermuda Tees were mowed close. Bermuda fairways mowed close and dry. Bermuda rough mowed down but still thick in spots. What sand there was the quality was good. However, many traps were thin and in mediocre to poor condition. The Bermuda greens putted medium speed, were firm and somewhat bumpy. Hardly any ball marks because of the firmness, they rolled pretty well. Across the board, almost everything was a step down from the Valley course because the Valley is still a month from over seeding.

The customer service was excellent from all encountered. Cart gal out making numerous rounds, ample water stations every few holes on the course. Good course layout, fun to play. Better than average for the greater Palm Springs area. I look forward to playing here again. However, not recommended until they re-open after over seeding.

Played the Blues (6323/70.6/127) with 140ver & Hmtgolfguy in about 3.5H in warm (not hot), fairly calm conditions. Thanks to Mike & Ron for a fun, relaxed round.

Enjoyed the Ted Robinson layout more than expected. You cannot spray the ball around too much, but it's not overtly tight. While there is more water to avoid than most courses...not as much water as I was led to believe. Up/down rolling hills with some raised green complexes and numerous tiered greens and a generous amount of sand to avoid. Definite plus on the layout, fun to play.

The course was in pretty good late summer condition. Bermuda Tees were mostly good. Bermuda fairways mostly lush and almost always produced good lies. Bermuda rough mostly mowed down but still thick and would grab your club. Sand quality was good but the depths were inconsistent, had not been raked recently. The Bermuda greens consistently putted medium speed and were firm. Hardly any ball marks because of the firmness, they rolled pretty well.

The customer service was excellent from all encountered. Cart gal out making numerous rounds, ample water stations every few holes on the course. Not a great course, but better than average for the greater Palm Springs area. I look forward to playing here again. Recommended.

Played the Blues (6739/73.1/140) with Sparky14 in 4H. It was 4H because of a slow 4some in front of us the last 1/3 of the round, otherwise we could have finished in slightly more than 3H. Thanks to Steve for a fun round, laid back and easy going. The weather was bright, sunny and slightly below 100, with little breeze.

The tees were lush and mowed high. Only some par 3's needed divot repair.

The fairways were lush, few places with severe divots. Generally good lies in the fairways.

The rough was lush. What a difference a few days make. Last week the rough was lost ball deep and punitive, today it was mowed down a good 1.5 to 2" lower than last week and much easier to play from.

The plentiful sand traps were well maintained with good quality sand. There are many HUGE traps on this course, a few with 10' to 15' banks/lips to hit over. Avoiding the sand here is a MUCH higher priority than almost any other course I have played. An oddity is that the cart path runs the entire length of several waste bunkers. Therefore, you may well be playing off tire tracks if you hit into them.

The Bermuda greens putted consistently @ medium speed. Very firm and relatively smooth for Bermuda.

Overall, this is a challenging layout and the conditions were well above average. The customer service was top notch. Cart gal around numerous times. Even playing the appropriate tees, the average golfer is probably going to shoot 3-5 strokes higher on this course than they are accustomed to. Numerous forces carries over or skirting water off fairways that are unlevel due to the mounding is challenging for the average golfer. Definitely recommended with the above in mind.

Played the Blacks (6666/72.9/135) with GDR23. POP was 3H, 30M in sunny, muggy conditions with a 1 club breeze most of the round.

Really enjoy this course. Holes 13-17 are about as good a consecutive 5 hole stretch as you will find anywhere. Typical Pete Dye design with some raised greens, numerous mounds and massive waste bunkers. However, unlike Stadium, this course is fun to play and doesn't continually beat you up.

The tees were mostly lush and well maintained. A few had been recently vericutt. Only some par 3's had a decent amount of divot damage.

The fairways were mostly lush. A couple had been vericutt and only sporadic places with severe divots.

The rough was lush but not too tall. It would grab your club but you could easily find you ball.

The plentiful sand traps were well maintained. An odd thing is that the cart path runs the entire length of several waste bunkers. Therefore, you may well be playing off tire tracks if you hit into them.

The Bermuda greens putted medium speed and were somewhat bumpy. Firm with few ball marks. Disappointing overall.

Major drainage construction ongoing that is between holes 14/15. They are playing #14 short, only affects #15 if you go well left where you should not be anyway.

Overall, this is a challenging layout and the conditions were very good except for the greens, which were mediocre. The customer service was very good. Cart gal around numerous times. Definitely recommended, this is a fun layout and one of my favorite courses to play.

Played the Blues (6739/73.1/140) with GDR23 and a father/son. POP was 4H, 15M in sunny, muggy conditions with at most a 1 club breeze part of the round.

Played better than my 1st attempt here, but enjoyed the course less. Typical Pete Dye design, numerous mounds and bunkers complete with challenging sight lines on almost every hole. You almost never have a level lie after your tee shot because of all the mounds/moguls. There is nothing easy about this course from tee to green.

The tees were lush and well maintained, only some par 3's had a decent amount of divot damage.

The fairways were lush, few places with severe divots.

The rough was lush. You could lose a ball you dropped if you went to your cart to change clubs and did not mark where you dropped it. Numerous delays looking for balls not that far off fairways for all players in our group on multiple holes. Created a POP issue, it was nasty and penal.

The plentiful sand traps were well maintained with good quality sand. There are many HUGE traps on this course, a few with 10' to 15' banks/lips to hit over. Avoiding the sand here is a MUCH higher priority than almost any other course I have played. An oddity is that the cart path runs the entire length of several waste bunkers. So you may well be playing off tire tracks if you hit into them.

The Bermuda greens putted nice. Medium speed, very consistent, firm and relatively smooth for Bermda.

Played the Blues (6386/70.7/124) in 3.5H in sunny, WINDY conditions. Matched up with Mark, on vacation from Long Island.

The Bermuda tees were lush and maintained long. All but the par 3's were in nice shape.

The Bermuda fairways were lush and played well. They are also maintained long, which makes the course play longer because of the lack of roll.

The Bermuda rough was generally lush and just long enough to grab your club. The rough around the greens is very lush.

The greens putted well. Smooth for Bermuda, firm & medium speed. The firmness needs to be taken into account on pitches/chips and longer irons. No severe slopes or tiers, I see the lines well on these greens.

The sand traps were decent. Well maintained with medium texture brown sand.

The carts are equipped with good GPS. This would be a challenging course to walk because numerous tees are a long way from the last green because the course is split up between multiple residential complexes. The customer service was excellent from everyone encountered.

Fairly wide open layout with a good mixture of holes. Very good condition for late summer. Good course, fun to play. Recommended.

Played the Blues (6507/71.5/128) in 4H, 20M. Thanks to DW for having us out! After a nice lunch, went out for 18 more with Roarsown1, Adigitalg87 & Rudyclub. Robert, Gus and Tim are excellent guys to play with! The weather was breezy, clear, muggy and around 100... the heat was affecting us all by the final 9 of the day!

From tee to green, Mountain View was in almost as good of condition as the immaculately maintained Firecliff course we played in the morning. First thing we noticed was that the tees/fairways were mowed closer. However, the greens were a huge step down from Firecliff.

The Bermuda tees were mostly lush with only the par 3 tees needing divot repair.

The lush Bermuda fairways had very few unfixed divots. They were firm and provided a decent amount of roll.

The ball generally sat up in the Bermuda rough and playing even longer clubs was a viable option. Also good to chip out of around the greens.

The traps were nicely maintained with good quality sand.

The greens were disappointing. Medium slow and bumpy, not nearly as good as Firecliff. I did notice that they seem to be in the process of changing the shape of and expanding several greens.

The customer service has been superb every round I have played here. Drink cart out making the rounds & complementary range balls are included with your round on a very nice practice facility. Lunch in between rounds got high marks from everyone, the quantity and quality was excellent.

This is a challenging course that is not quite as tough or picturesque as it's sister Firecliff course, but it's still an excellent course overall. I enjoy the layout and look forward to playing here again. Definitely recommend this course.
