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.

Walked the Blacks (1239) in 1H, 15M playing as a single. The weather was clear and breezy, around 65.

The tees were lush with good coverage and the normal amount of par 3 divots. They had no divot mix to repair divots? Thought I finally found one on the 4th tee. However, it was a pleasant surprise in that it was actually a container filled with chilled delicious apples!

The fairways and rough are both in excellent shape.

I find the traps tough to play out of because of the thickness of the sand coupled with some of the huge lips. The traps were well maintained with thick sand.

The greens are unusually large for a course this length. They putted medium fast and were mostly smooth. Moist and soft after the rain, they held iron shots like throwing darts. The downside being a par 3 is that they have many more ball/pitch marks than a normal course.

Tremendous views coupled with a good course layout make this a very fun course to play. Many holes have elevation changes and the prevailing ocean breeze always swirl here. The Customer Service from everyone encountered was excellent as usual. Limited food/beverage available onsite. No GPS, they do have range finders on the tees.

Easy & fun course to walk. No motorized carts but a walking cart is included as part of your fee. The Pro Shop is in a trailer but is very functional & well stocked with merchandise. Nice chipping and pitching green in addition to the large practice putting green. No driving range, they have nets for you to warm up in. Recommended.

Rode the Golds (6643/71.5/126) with Ed, Scott and Stacy first out in 4H, 15M. 45M frost delay, it was 45 when we teed off but was up in the 60's when we finished under overcast skies.

The course is in good shape after over seeding, looks nice.

The tees were lush and could have been exceptional "but for" the amount of unfixed divots.

The fairways were lush and nice to play from.

The Bermuda rough is the only part of the course not over seeded. Mostly dormant, 2-3" deep, not overly penal.

The sand traps were nicely raked with dark brown sand/dirt. They have added more sand and they are now well above average, unusual for this course.

The greens were firm, medium fast and smooth. Very nice!

The customer service was excellent in the pro shop and with the starter/cart staff. Plenty of water stations on the course and the Drink cart was making the rounds. Really good all grass practice facility with complementary balls are included with your fee. No GPS on the carts is a definite minus for a Troon managed layout. Player is a solid course, it's challenging but still fun. Recommended.

Rode the Blues (5827/67.3/120) in slightly over 4H mid morning using Forelinx. Matched up with Nicki, Bruce and John. Around 70, clear and fairly calm.

The tees were lush and well maintained. A few could use some divot love.

The fairways were lush and nice to play from.

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

The traps were just okay. Ranging from fluffy sand to standing water from over watering.

The small greens were firm, smooth and putted medium fast speed.

The customer service was very good all around. No Drink cart out today. No GPS on the basic carts that are new. This course would be easy to walk, very flat and most tees are close to the last green. The course looks great after over seeding. Fun shorter course, recommended.

Rode the Golds (6158/69.5/125) in 3H, 15M twilight, CPO, breezy, partly cloudy and around 70.

The tees were level and lush but could use more divot repair.

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

The Bermuda rough is the only part of the course not over seeded. Mostly dormant and not overly penal, usually decent to play from, just tall enough to keep your attention.

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

Coming out of over seeding, the greens are being maintained long and putted medium slow. They held irons well, softer than usual after the recent rain.

The customer service was excellent as usual here. Plenty of water stations on the course. No Drink cart today. Good practice facilities with complementary range balls although the range tops out about 220 yards. 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. Fun layout, but the playing conditions after over seeding are not as good as I would expect for a Troon run facility.

Rode the Blacks (3475/57.1/92) with Gil, John and Sue in 3H, 10M twilight on a GN "Hot Deal". The weather was partly cloudy and calm around 70.

Water on all 18 holes hi-lite this fun executive course design. Par 60, six short par 4's and ten par 3's. The course was in near immaculate condition for the most part.

The tees were lush but many were fairly chewed up.

Both the fairways and rough were immaculately maintained.

The sand traps were well maintained with nice, fluffy sand.

The greens were excellent. Smooth, medium fast and firm. No tiers, but many have a decent amount of slope on them. Only thing to mark them down for is the amount of pitch marks, not unexpected on a shorter course.

The customer service was limited but good. Quick efficient check-in, no drink cart. No GPS on basic carts. Good mixture of holes. The ten par 3's ranged from 105 to 175 and provided different looks. The six short par 4's were a good mix of risk/reward with lakes or OB close by if you went for them and missed. The layout was VERY comparable with Sunrise Country Club that is close by. Both are par 60 with a generous amount of water hazards. One of the better executive courses I have ever played, definitely recommended.

Rode the Golds (6158/69.5/125) as a single in 3H mid day using Forelinx. Windy and drizzling in the high 60's was unusual weather for golf in Rancho Mirage?

Just coming out of over seeding, the conditions were disappointing. They did not over seed the rough and the rest of the course is not nearly as lush as other over seeded courses in the Palm Springs area I have recently played.

Most of the landing areas are generous in size, but there is OB down both sides of most holes and numerous holes have water that comes prominently into play. Not a grip it and rip it course.

The tees were lush but had their share of divots. Mostly level.

The fairways were lush and well maintained. Few unfixed divots.

The Bermuda rough is mostly dormant and not overly penal. Usually okay to play from.

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

The greens were fuzzy and putted medium slow. They held irons well.

Good facilities, complementary range balls although the range tops out @ 220 yards. 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 all around, especially Anthony in the cart barn. Plenty of water stations on the course. No Drink cart today. Fun layout, but could not recommend at their rack rate.

Rode the Blacks (6669/71.9/128) using Forelinx in 4H twilight, barely finishing before darkness. Was matched up with Roger, Luch and Bernardo as part of a twilight shot gun start. The weather was around 70 and sunny with a little breeze.

The course looks immaculate after over seeding. No GPS on the basic carts, no drink cart. Marshall out patrolling trying to enforce POP.

The tees were lush and well maintained.

The fairways were lush and excellent to play from.

The rough is just high enough to grab a longer club.

The sand traps were nicely maintained with good quality sand.

The large greens had a light top dressing, but still putted nice. Medium fast and firm.

Excellent variety of holes. Par 35-37=72 Billy Casper designed layout with five par 5's and five par 3's. The back plays 871 yards longer from the tips and has many more par 4's than the front because the front is stacked with par 3's. Better score on the front, because the back plays LONG @ 3770 yards. Some forced carries and water comes into play on many holes. However, generous landing areas would make it a good choice for players of all skill levels. Not a course to walk, many tees are a hike from the last green. Recommended.

Rode the Blues (5827/67.3/120) in 3H, 40M mid morning using Forelinx. Matched up with Bill, O.J. and Mike, members of the men's club and great guys to play with. Mid 70's, clear and calm, excellent golf weather.

The course is lush and green after over seeding.

The tees were lush and well maintained. Only complaint was that almost all the blues were forward of the markers, and this is already a short course.

The fairways were lush and good to play from.

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

The traps were well maintained with fluffy sand. Nice to play from.

The small greens were smooth and putted medium fast speed. Firm, even well struck irons shots usually released.

The customer service was excellent from everyone. No Drink cart out today. No GPS on the basic carts that are new. 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, recommended.

Rode the Golds (6643/71.5/126) with Paul and Dianne in 4H, 15M, CPO. The weather was around 65, clear and calm.

While most fairways are generous in width, Player is not really a grip it and rip it course. Losing balls in native bushes and OB is close to many fairways if you venture off the short grass on many holes. The layout also has numerous lakes to navigate over/around.

The over seeded tees were level, lush and well maintained for divots.

The over seeded fairways were lush and well maintained with few unfixed divots. Nice to play from.

The Bermuda rough is not over seeded and is mowed down close. Not overly penal.

The sand traps were nicely maintained. Most green side traps had new sand since the last time I played here.

The over seeded greens were mostly smooth and putted medium speed. They are firm but still held irons okay.

Really good all grass practice facilities with unlimited range balls. The customer service was very good as usual here. Plenty of water stations on the course. Drink cart out making the rounds several times. No GPS on the carts is a -. I enjoy this Troon managed layout. Solid course, nothing tricked up, it's tough but not overly demanding. Recommended.

Rode the Golds (6401/71.0/130) early morning with Sixpez and JohnnyGK. We let a couple of 2somes play through and enjoyed a relaxed slightly less than 4H round. Thanks to Terra Lago for having us out! The weather was clear, calm and in the 70's.

This Schmidt/Curley layout is challenging yet fun. Many undulations on the greens and large swells around the green complexes make for challenging chipping. There are a few problem areas but overall the course is in good condition just out of over seeding. They have taken out many of the dead bushes around the fairways that used to be unplayable since i last played here 2 1/2 years ago. Now, much of that area is dirt/sand with a few bushes. Good change for POP.

The tees were lush and almost none needed divot repair. Only #17 was in poor shape.

The over seeded fairways were lush, very nice to play on. #8 had some bad areas, but the rest were lush with excellent lies.

The rough around the fairways was a combination of lush/thin, very playable with good coverage.

The sand traps were very hit and miss. A few were very nice, well maintained with good quality sand. Most were mediocre. A few were hard pan.

The over seeded greens look nice. They were smooth, firm and putted medium speed.

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

Rode the Purple tees (6507/71.2/128) in 4H, 30M twilight using Forelinx. Matched up with Umberto, Kitty and Ryan, nice group to play with. The weather was sunny, breezy and around 80.

The Bermuda tees were lush and nice to play from. Level with few divots.

The Bermuda fairways are mostly lush and firm.

Same for the Bermuda rough, which is mowed low.

The sand traps were nicely maintained with thick sand.

The Bermuda greens putted medium fast speed and were firm. However, too many ball marks!

Excellent customer service on every visit here. Nice GPS on carts. Drink cart out making numerous rounds this afternoon. Normally a nice all grass driving range with a good chipping area & practice green, but currently closed for over seeding. Course is in really solid shape for just before over seeding. Recommended.
