Rode the Golds (6401/71.0/130) early morning with Steve and Chris on a GN Hot Deal. CPO, which contributed to the almost 4.5H POP. The weather was partly cloudy, breezy and in the 60's.

The tees were nice. Lush and almost none needed divot repair.

The over seeded fairways were good to play from, mostly lush.

The rough around the fairways was a combination of lush/thin. Okay coverage but you could end up with a poor lie or be in as good of shape as in the middle of the fairway a foot apart.

Several sand traps were lakes after yesterdays downpour. The ones that were not under water were in remarkably good condition considering the amount of rain yesterday.

The greens were EXCELLENT. Firm and medium fast with few ball marks. Many undulations on the greens and large swells around the green complexes make for challenging chipping.

This course would be difficult to walk as numerous tees are a long ways from the last green. Good all grass driving range with a couple of practice holes is a +. GPS on the carts. The customer service was good from all encountered.

Enjoy this Schmidt/Curley layout, challenging yet still fun. Recommended.

Rode the Golds (6158/69.5/125) in 4H, 15M mid day using Forelinx. Matched up with Steve and Chris, we played at a relaxed pace under partly cloudy, calm conditions in the 60's.

The tees were lush/level and well maintained for divots.

The fairways were lush and well maintained.

The Bermuda rough is the only part of the course not over seeded and is VERY mediocre at this point. Thin with areas of hardpan all the way to a few places that are dormant and fluffy is not a good place to go with lush fairways closeby.

The sand traps were nicely maintained with a decent amount of good quality sand.

The greens putted nice, firm and medium fast. They held irons well, softer than usual after the recent rains.

This course would be difficult to walk as numerous tees are a long way from the last green. GPS to the front/middle/back of the green only. The customer service was excellent as usual here. Plenty of water stations on the course. Drink cart out making the rounds. Good practice facilities with complementary range balls although the range tops out about 220 yards. Fun layout, Recommended.

Rode the Blues (5827/67.3/120) in 3H, 45M mid morning using Forelinx. Matched up with Ray, Ralph and Russ, all vacationing from Canada. Mid 60's, clear and calm, very comfortable golf weather.

The tees were lush and well maintained with few unfixed divots.

The fairways were mostly lush and good to play from.

The rough was lush but not tall. Good POP rough.

The traps were well maintained with thick sand. A few had sprinkler runoff challenges.

The small greens were smooth and putted medium fast speed.

The customer service was excellent from everyone. Drink cart out making the rounds. No GPS on the basic carts that are nice. Rasonably priced grill onsite. Complimentary range balls on an all grass range that tops out at about 220 yards.

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. Fun course, the staff is always very friendly and I almost always get matched up with nice seniors to play with. Recommended.

Rode the Blues (61.1/105/4386) with Keith and Jason mid day using Forelinx. POP was poor for an executive course, 4H, 15M on a packed Monday. Weather was great, close to 80 and clear with a little breeze.

Had never played here. Fun par 61 executive course with many more legitimate holes than the yardage would indicate. Three long par 3's ranging from 191 - 222 all the way down to three short ones ranging from 81 - 104. None of the par 4's were tricked up, and one was 452 from the Blues. Signature hole is #17, a downhill medium length par 3 with an island green. Overall, a well designed shorter course. The bones are there but the conditions (other than the greens) are rough to very rough around the edges.

The tees were poor. Numerous were thin/unlevel and could use divot repair.

Both the fairways and rough were thin with numerous areas of hardpan.

The sand I was in was surprising good. Greenside traps had plenty of sand, fairway traps were hard packed.

The greens were the high light of the course. Firm, reasonably smooth and downright quick going downhill. Could have been great "but for" all the pitch marks.

The customer service was excellent from everyone. Friendly player ambassador out making the rounds. No drink cart, but there was a busy snack shop at the turn. Basic carts, no GPS. Recommended knowing going in that the playing conditions will not wow you, but a fun layout.

Rode the Greens (6621/71.5/130) with Joe and Carol in slightly over 4H. Sunny, calm conditions in the mid 70's.

The tees were lush and level. Could use more maintenance on the par 3's.

The over seeded fairways were lush and nice to play from.

The over seeded rough is thick and about 3" tall. Outside the over seeded areas, the native landscape is a probable lost ball.

The large/deep sand traps are well raked with good quality sand. However, some could use more sand.

The greens were firm and putted medium fast speed. Nice overall but too many old ball marks!

The drink cart came by several times and the friendly Starter/Marshall was out patrolling trying to keep things moving smoothly. 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. Recommended.

Played the Blues (6313/70.6/129) in 4H. Paired with Howard, Thomas and James. The weather was clear, fairly calm and in the 60's.

The tees were well maintained. Lush with only the par 3's needing divot repair.

The fairways were good to play from. Lush, nicely maintained.

The rough provides a nice visual contrast. Close to the fairways and around the greens is over seeded and emerald green. The Bermuda rough around the tees and farther off the fairways is dormant tan.

The sand traps were nicely maintained with a decent amount of good quality sand.

The large greens were firm and putted medium speed. Smooth except for all the pitch marks.

The customer service was excellent from everyone as always here. Drink cart out making the rounds. Good GPS on the carts. All grass driving range is included in your fee. Good restaurant onsite. Not a course to walk as many tees are well spread out from the last green.

SilverRock is a fun & pretty layout. Definitely recommended.

Played the Golds (6511/71.4/132) with 24hourgolf, Hmtgolfguy and RGM2525 in slightly more than 4H. Thanks to Larry, Ron and Ron for a fun round! The weather was in the 70's, clear & calm.

The tees were lush overall but the par 3's could use divot repair.

The over seeded fairways were lush, nice to play on. A couple were still recovering from over seeding and were CPO.

The rough was only over seeded close to the fairways and was mostly dormant Bermuda. Very playable, but not lush like the rest of the course.

The sand traps were well maintained. I sampled my share, only negative was a couple could have used more sand.

The large greens putted nice. Medium speed, smooth and firm. Deceptive contours mean you will rarely have a straight putt here.

Good GPS on the carts and they have an all grass range included in your fee. The customer service was excellent from everyone. No drink cart today. Like the course layout, especially the back 9 where you have some long tough holes mixed in with some shorter risk/reward holes. #18 is among the toughest finishing holes I have ever played.

TL North is much more playable than the last time I played here a couple of years ago because they have removed hundreds of native shrubs that used to lurk right off every fairway. It used to be you crossed the cart path and you were in 5' tall bushes. Still plenty challenging w/o being unfair. The course would be very difficult to walk as numerous tees are a long ways from the last green. Recommended.

Rode the Greens (6621/71.5/130) first out with Gary. POP slightly over 3H under bright, calm conditions in the high 60's.

The tees were lush and level. Could have been great based on the lushness. However, I could tell from where the divots were on the par 3's where the tees had been in their last 3 rotations because almost none of the divots were filled/repaired.

Over seeded fairways were lush and played firm.

The maintained over seeded rough is thick and about 3". You hope it catches any offline shots, because the native stuff is a probable lost ball.

The large/deep sand traps looked good. Well raked with good quality sand. However, marked down for inconsistent depths.

The greens were firm and putted medium fast speed. The amount of pitch marks is very high here, you could fix 20 per green and barely make a dent in the total.

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. GPS on the carts is good and the all grass practice range is excellent. Nice restaurant on site. Recommended.

Played the Blues (6313/70.6/129) in 4H early morning, paired with Jim and Tom. The weather was clear, fairly calm and around 60.

SilverRock is easier after the redesign that shortened the back, but still a fun & pretty layout. Personally, my favorite public course in the Palm Springs area.

The tees were lush and well maintained. Only a couple of par 3's needed divot repair.

The fairways were lush, nicely maintained and good to play from.

The rough close to the fairways and around the greens is over seeded. The Bermuda rough around the tees and farther off the fairways is dormant, providing a nice color contrast.

The sand traps were nicely maintained with a decent amount of good quality sand. The traps here are tougher than average with large lips and potential long carries.

The greens were firm and putted medium speed. Decent amount of contour/slope on these large greens. Smooth except for all the pitch marks.

The customer service was excellent from everyone. Drink cart out making the rounds. Good GPS on the carts. All grass driving range is included in your fee. Had lunch in the onsite restaurant, very good. Definitely recommended.

Rode the Blues (6323/70.6/127) in 3H, 15M. The weather was partly cloudy, fairly calm and in the low 60's.

Enjoy this Ted Robinson layout that is up/down rolling hills with many raised green complexes. Numerous tiered greens plus a generous amount of water & sand to avoid. Reasonably tough but scoreable if playing well.

Over seeded tees were excellent. Lush, level with good coverage and few divots.

Over seeded fairways were lush and well maintained.

Over seeded rough was mostly mowed down but still difficult to play out of because of the thickness.

Sand traps were nicely maintained but the depths were inconsistent.

Over seeded greens were medium fast speed and firm. Hardly any ball marks because of the firmness, they rolled smoothly.

The customer service was very good from all encountered. Cart gal out making the rounds, ample water stations every few holes on the course. Good GPS on the carts. Range balls are included in your fee, all grass range that is adequate. Recommended.

Rode the Blues (6381/70.5/127) in slightly over 3H under partly cloudy, fairly calm conditions around 55.

Over seeded tees were lush and near immaculate. Level with very few unfixed divots.

Over seeded fairways were lush and nice to play from.

Over seeded rough was not high, but was lush and thick.

Sand traps were nicely raked. However, there is just not enough sand in them. Firm with little sand is fine on the fairways, but not around raised greens where the traps often have large lips.

Over seeded greens putted medium fast speed, were firm and smooth. Not many ball marks, very nice.

Ted Robinson design that constantly goes up/down rolling hills with some raised green complexes, Numerous tiered greens, nice water features with a generous amount of water and sand to avoid. You cannot spray the ball around too much, but Palm is not overtly tight.

The customer service was excellent from all encountered. Cart gal out making numerous rounds, ample water stations every few holes on the course. Good GPS on the carts. Range balls are included in your fee, all grass range. Fun course layout, Recommended.

Rode the Blues (6294/71.9/136) in 4H, 20M with Caligolfer1031, Matthew and Jerrod. CPO. Clear, breezy and around 70. We got about as good a day to golf as you will ever encounter next to the ocean. Greg and I enjoyed using our free Trump e-mail voucher rounds immensely!

My 1st time playing here. Course conditions were excellent bordering on immaculate. Wet but very playable after the recent rains. Other than 1 bunker and a few areas that had some runoff challenges, the entire place was in the 8+ range out of 10 condition wise.

The Pete Dye layout is tight and every hole has a great ocean view. Very tough, unforgiving course. Side note: Just for kicks, we teed on the Black tees on #18, which is perched on top of a hill beside the ocean. Toughest par 4 I have ever seen from there... 512 yards, with a 200 yard forced carry to reach a fairly tight fairway with lost ball bushes down both sides before you reach a very severe green with trouble all around. The Blue tees are almost 1,000 yards shorter than the Blacks here, the largest yardage gap I have ever seen between tee boxes.

The tees were lush and very well maintained.

The fairways were lush and maintained high coming out of over seeding. The course played long with almost no roll because of the higher grass and wet conditions.

The rough was nasty. Lush, 3" tall and the ball sat down, made worse by wet conditions. Several times we almost had to be hovering over our ball to find it. Advancing the ball more than 125 yards and getting it back in the fairway w/o roll was a good result.

The sand traps were in amazing condition considering it had rained the previous 2 days. Thick sand that was for the most part immaculately maintained.

The greens were medium fast and putted well. The contours appeared less severe than most Dye courses until you watched a few chips/putts roll much differently than expected. You did not want a putt or chip down a slope here.

The customer service was excellent. The friendly, informative Player attendant out making numerous rounds, as was the drink cart gal. Combination of price and out of the way location would have me rarely playing here, but the course and layout were better than I had heard. It's tough and tight, not a place most people are going to lower their handicap. However, I came away feeling like I usually do when I play another one of Dye's more famous layouts, Stadium @ PGA West. It beat me up but I still thoroughly enjoy the experience. Definitely recommended, especially if you can get a deal.
