I have been dying to play this course and finally did last Saturday.

I am going to be harder on Eagle Falls than most courses as the competition is stiff in Palm Springs with world class golf destinations down the street.

Eagle falls is a hidden gem and a very unique concept. Every golfer at least once needs to play Palm Springs in peak season. The weather and mountain backdrop can't be beat. The fact you can play a premier course in Palm Springs in peak season for $95 rack rate on Saturday morning can't be matched. Eagle Falls offers spectacular backdrops of the mountains.

However, the best thing with Eagle Falls is that it may only appeal to hard core golfers. (This makes it great for us, because it keeps the tourists and cost down)

If you come from the east entrance it's scary. It feels like you are driving down a street in Baghdad. The road is destroyed. There is zero curb appeal. The parking lot is tore up, the signs are weak, and the pro shop is an old portable. My friends were concerned with me when they showed up. The pro shop is bare bones. It's a depressing site in the snack shop. DO NOT EAT THE FOOD HERE. I had the worst breakfast burrito of my life here and we all agreed this was the worst food we have ever eaten at a golf course. The staff joking says they keep the money on the course and want people to go to the casino versus eating here, which makes sense to allow $95 tee times.

The practice facility is awesome. Driving over the bridge to the course is exhilarating. I don't like to be negative on reviews but this golf course needs a new starter. That guy was the most obnoxious long winded guy I have ever dealt with and basically harassed us as we tried to putt and warm up. Before we went off I was talking with him on how I write reviews and how much my buddies and I play. Then before we go off he proceeds to talk to us like we are 8 year olds who have never played golf in our lives for a good 10 minute speech. It was horrendously awful and needs to be stopped and changed by management. He got our hole group nice and annoyed before we teed off.

Now the golf course is absolutely epic! The conditions are near perfect here. My friend said this his new favorite course and one mine as well. It's nice and wide open and fun. Not overly penal. The holes spectacular as well. The turf is just one notch down from being tour level perfect. The sand is very consistent to hit out of, but is a dirty course rock and isn't the high end fluffy stuff. We all commented on how the greens were absolutely perfect and the perfect speed. The greens were easily the top 3 greens I've ever putted on competing with Pasatiempo and Pumpkin Ridge. Our group only noticed one bounce the entire day on a spike mark.

The 18th hole is an amazing show stopper. Pace of play was unbelievable for a Saturday we never waited once. It terms of pure golf it doesn't get any better than Eagle Falls.

If you are looking for amenities look elsewhere.

Played super twilight here tonight. The course is in really good shape.

I drive by the view of this course every day on my way home. I haven't played here since summer but had to get out after seeing how green the course is.

The reseed set extremely well here. Greens rolled well, medium speed, held well.

Sad playing here during a winter evening with the soft conditions. My drives had lost 30 yards of carry versus when I had played here during summer. It definitely made the course more of a shotmakers course from the tips.

I don't mind the power lines and I always enjoy playing here. Friendly design with some fun holes and enough challenge.

Played here twilight during the week last week. Stadium is PURE

It's cart paths only and they have begun erecting the scaffolding on the closing holes. The bare bones of the stadium is up and you get to walk through the tunnel into the arena. It's quite a feeling hitting a shot even inside the scaffolding.

The conditions are just about as pure as it gets. The bunkers look refreshed from the maintenance. They rough is super thick and tasty as they grow it out. Greens were near perfect. Fairways have fair amount of divots and some wear which is the only thing holding it back before being tour ready. It is quite a difference when you play on tour quality grass and sand.

Currently caddies are required during the day and the price is steep. But it is beginning to have the tour feel.

Played here on Thursday POP 5 hours

It's funny how much how well you play as well as the quality of your playing partners affects your enjoyment of a course. I played with the most nightmarishly slow group and played the worst I have in 2 months. Yet still was blown away by the course.

SunRidge Canyon is the first course finished with the reseed in the area.
I wanted to play a special course after being let down by everything following Quintero and SunRidge delivered. Every hole is different and takes advantage of the extreme natural topography. The Tips on this course are very challenging. The sight lines and visual cues from the tips are tough. Even well placed tee shots were offline due to the offset fairways. Driving accuracy and up and downhill distance control are musts here. You have to be generous with the club up on the uphill shots here.

The turf is growing in well from the reseed. What is unique about this course are it's green side bunkers and rough. They leave the rough very thick around the greens which you don't see around here. The bunkers have sheer walls. What they have done is stacked sod to make the lips, so they are literally square edged pot bunkers around the green. Both elements provide a little Scottish links feel which I enjoyed.

The sod hasn't set around the bunkers, and there was flood damage around the rough from the recent monsoons. The greens were clean with no ball marks but still running medium/fast because of the rain.

Easily a top 5 track in the Phoenix/Scottsdale Area and by far a top 3 most difficult.

Played here Friday the 21st in the afternoon.

The course was in great shape. I really enjoyed the Faldo side and because this is a resort course it is always kept green during summer.

While I enjoy the visual appeal of the Faldo course and it's endless sea of bunkers this is a much more enjoyable course to play. There is something about Palmer courses that have a really nice flow to them.

They are not any overly difficult holes, or tee shots here. Nor are there any over the top desert elements etc.

Very well balanced, clean, mature and enjoyable course. Lots of holes feature beautiful sight lines as well

Great balance of length, difficulty, green undulations, bunkers.

Great course and a blast to play.

Played here Friday afternoon. Course is closing soon for overseed, are letting the fairways die.

This course is further along in the overseed preparation. Mostly dormant and dried out grass across the course. Lots of left mowed grass.

Dried out but very playable especially for the value (I played for only $27)

Greens were good and rolled well. Firm and fast but not the lightning they normally are making scoring possible.

Bunkers were hard packed and poor. Needed more sand.

The back nine here is awesome. One of my favorite courses to play and should be in fine shape following the reseed.

Excellent greens while prepping for overseed.

The greens are perfect right now. Maybe the best I've seen here. Rarely saw a ball mark. Smooth fast TPC greens.

The rest of the turf was a little dried out prepping for the over seed but nothing bad. Greens will be perfect following the overseed.

This course is in good shape following the maintenance it had recently.

Played here two weekends ago. Course was in fine shape. I wanted to play somewhere new that was close and found a good deal here for an afternoon Saturday round.

The course keeps it interesting and has some quirks. Overall the course is in good shape.
The course is very short with the Tips (Blue tees) not playing further than 6400 yards. You can tell they had land constraints. To combat the shortness the course features mostly elevated tees, doglegs, and tree lined fairways.

Not much need to hit driver here as I overpowered the course and ran through a lot of fairways.

There is a good combination of holes designs and and elevated greens to keep it interesting.

I'd rate this course as a fun neighborhood course for a weekday round.

Better than expected.

A definite step up from you average municipal.

The layout is straight forward. Everything is in great shape. The bunker redesign was perfect. Conditions were great for this time of year.

Greens too slow for my taste but very consistent.

A well kept and fair test of golf for your beginner / senior / few rounds a year player.

Couldn't have asked for a better round of golf than with the GK crew especially the one and only JohnnyGK.

In my opinion for Phoenix/Scottsdale golf there is Quintero and then everything else. It doesn't get much better than this.

Every hole is different. Playing in secluded isolation on a mature course. Unbelievable elevation changes.

Doesn't get any better than this for desert golf

So much wasted potential.... still a good value

Played here last Friday at 2:30 POP 3:30

This is a coworkers local track and he convinced me to come out. I had read that this was actually a good layout but kind of a dog track and was down to play. My thoughts are a course depends on the value. We played for $18 with a cart so from a value standpoint this is a good value. The current condition is sh-t . There's patchy crab grass everywhere. You will even get a wicked lie just off the green with the ball resting under a patch of crab grass sprout. The greens were recovering from a punch so they were trash. The course is your basic municipal dog track condition wise. It is the middle of summer so can't blame them. There is actually thick rough which is a welcome relief here in the desert. Very hard to come by.

However, the layout is actually amazing. The bones of this course are oozing with potential. It is an Arnold Palmer course and it shows. The tips are over 7,000 yards which shocked me (I was expecting a short 6,600 muni) It feels like a palm springs course. It winds through a housing track with great mountain vistas, which doesn't make you feel you are boxed in by the homes. There are palm trees and water hazards galore. The course has mature trees and top notch dog leg risk rewards holes. The bunkers are hard packed dirt but you can tell they are beautifully designed. If they put money into this course It could perfectly fit into PGA West rotation.

The layout here is that good. The condition not so much. I will play here again as the value and layout are top notch. It is almost like dating a girl with a bad haircut and goofy glass but lots of potential. You get a good value and get to imagine what this course could be in top shape.

Played here twilight last night at 4:30. POP 2:15

The course reopened from it's maintenance. I can't say enough how much I love this course. It is definitely my home course. I know TPC Scottsdale is a love/hate course but don't allow the champions to fall into that category. It's a sweet track. Very fun to play. It's the perfect balance of fun and challenging in my opinion, blacks are a 137 slope.

I think in probably 2 weeks it will be in awesome condition. Some of the sod is still settling in and there are some bare spots on a few areas but it is dramatically better than it was before the maintenance. The greens are nice. Firm medium/fast and rolling. Once they dry out and heal a little more they will be the firm glass I love. The bunkers here are epic as always. TPC top class crushed quartz/granite perfection with perfect lips. I almost enjoy hitting into them because you get to blast bunker shots out of the powder like the pros and spin it close.

One sad not is they have added a 7 o'clock curfew :( Doesn't affect many, but I loved coming here late when it cooled off and play til dark but I do understand the economics of things.
