Played 18 here today. All I can say is "wow". SBogey's been talking about what a nice course it was and how much he enjoyed playing here last year with Johnny and a few other GK'ers. We figured we'd give it a try. Got a pretty good rate so even though it was windy we hit the links.

First- this course is BEAUTIFUL. Undulating green everywhere- fairways and greens. Flowers in bloom absolutely every spot possible. Very nice layout- challenging but fair. Superb condition. Greens moderately fast and breaking true. Just obviously a well loved and cared for course. (And the wind was really only a factor on 3 or 4 holes. The rest are fairly well protected.)

Next- This is a very woman friendly course. Now dont' stop reading guys! Many courses do not give any thought to women players and our strengths. They simply move the tees up and think "Ok, it's shorter so fine. Done Deal." Well, sometimes that works out but often what it does is remove the challenge of the course and just makes it shorter- not better. This course doesn't do that. The forward tees are placed with some concern as to making the hole challenging AND also playable by women. I SO appreciated this. The distances were reachable and still made me plan and execute each shot carefully. I'm guessing that this is one reason why there were plenty of women playing this course. It was obvious that this is the norm - from the first when the cart caddies asked us who was driving! We play together a lot and this is the first time that the cart guys have not automatically assumed SBogey was driving! I really enjoyed this course from start to finish. Challenging but fair- apparently for both men and women and all skill levels. (SBogey has a lot of great things to say about it too)

If you go golfing in the Coachella Valley and don't play this course you have really cheated yourself. We've played a lot of courses in the area from high end to nevermind and this is definitely now one of my favorites! We'll be back!

Thanks! Just saw it posted.

I love Eagle Falls too. What a fun day that was playing with Steve (SBogey), Rob (Robstretch), Martin (lkygsx) and my buddy Brian the golf pro from Indian Wells Country Club...that had us all play from the back tees...too be eaten ALIVE by the course...LOL.

I hope this time Steve played the Hawk or Falcon Tees. Next time I want to try the Hawk tees instead of the Eagle!

Its a tough layout but FAIR. Just keep it in the fairway and what a blast it is because it is so thought provoking without being too target golf. Perfect blend.

Leaving in about 1 hour to play the course with my wife. I'm hoping she likes it as much as you did.

Good to know. We hit Palm Springs in early May, so I'll make this one of our 8 rounds.

Liquid, it's out in the middle of nowhere. There was some construction on the bridge to get over there and the proshop is a trailer in the back of the casino, but the conditions, service and course were excellent. It's now my wife's favorite course as she shot a career best 94 from the owl tees.
