Early out with Alex326 Tuesday morning with a deal from a national reseller. So the value was there to travel in with great late winter weather. Mostly sunny breeze 42-55 degrees right in the range of our 9 hole scores.
Great fun and challenging but fair. Without water hazards I kept the same ball all around which was different to other recent rounds.
from course website:
"With the removal of the Kikuyu and poa annua, all of the new turf is Jacklin T1 Bentgrass, a type that is superior in density and performance that will allow not only for better roll, but will harmonize with the state-of-the-industry drainage and irrigation systems installed on all 36 holes." The renovation was 2007-2010 range. So the course is mature and plays well.
I usually play in early November annually. Fun to play a different time of year. The greens while challenging are not as tough as then. IMO
Alex did a dandy description of conditions. I will add that the some areas of rough is being loamed and over-seeded in the thin spots and sprouting. Growing out will provide lush greenery this spring/summer. These areas of unmarked "gur" helped me with drops from the large trees edging most all fairways a couple times. They removed thousands during renovation. Still many many left.
Home lot prep / construction on some holes as well as tree chipping, pruning seems to be a regular procedure.
A high caliber tournament ready venue that has always had a thumbs-up from me.
Played with a couple gentlemen with LinkSoul connections. Good time.

Played Friday 3/12 under pleasant late winter weather. Mid-morning POP 4 hours exact. Two days before was heavy rain and hail. The bunkers under mostly effected. Puddled muddy. Didn't affect my game didn't visit there.
Greens nice healthy but rolling med/slow a few unrepaired ball marks. Fairways some areas tight dormant, others green, nice lies either spot. Rough is getting healthier day by day. 2"+
Overall what I expected hadn't played here in awhile. Good muni-track. Like previous review hole #5 weird double dog with unseen hazards in fairway and front of green. Power lines above. I know the hole hate it and would blow it up. #11 short dog left par 4 needs some thought to play well.
Great round with good friends I don't play enough with.
$49 rack rate was ok. Beer $25 w/tip for a 6 pack of American named lager.

Oh boy what do I do here? Only Gk reviewer since 2018.
Here goes: tournament play 2/27 8:20 #1 tee. Great drive second in the bunka blast out make a par. 2nd over the top drive left into junk lost ball #1 of day partner in play makes double with a stroke. # 3 par 5 great drive push 2nd right lose ball #2. Shoot 48 on front we're in contention in flight and eClub qualifier.
Partner bogeys 10 and then it's all over rover. Wind kicks up to 15-20 and the tight Johnny Miller design eats our lunches. Play it down I lose 9 balls on the back and I was trying. UGLY. Johnny Miller design he didn't make it easy.
Course conditions excellent for dormant tight lie fairways fast firm greens and low cut rough.
Read one of my reviews read all of them. You will have an accurate review for the time of year here from me. Consistent conditions year to year depending on season.
Respectfully submitted and beware. Be on your game here or it could be humbling. Bring a few of your favorite balls and a few to lose going for it. It's just fun.
Still recommend.

Quick drive over from DD to Rancho Mirage for the afternoon 18 on 2/16 a blustery day in the desert when much of the lower 48 (Texas for sure) in the grips of winter. Here this day that meant long pants windbreaker in the morning to shorts for the afternoon.
Great conditions overall here golf wise. Didn't go in or use the CH facilities for covid safety.
Joined gurus Ron, Gary and Pedro for a fun afternoon of play. The housing is spaced nicely away from the course itself. The open feel and sight lines are encouraging to the higher handicapper to try and get it out there off the tee. Gary Player provides much mounding and most bounces come back into play. Snow on the mountaintops and cactus and palm trees bordering the course. Read JohnnyGK review below for full details. I concur with him. Score wise the back 9 here was my low 9 of the day.
The fairways are very green over-seeded growth this time of year and the rough dormant brown. I enjoyed that contrast and would like to see it in summer mode too. Bermuda fairways and green rough but the play from there would be much more penal I'd estimate.
Enjoyed and recommend.

Played Tuesday 2/16 with the GK meet-play group. It was windy before sunrise and knew going in that today wind was a large factor. Oscillating ball on the putting green. Blow you hat off on the tee box kind of wind. Hoped the architect had factored in the wind in their design tracking. He did and I enjoyed the Robert Trent Jones Jr. track more because of that.
The par 3's had cross winds and difficult to gauge this day even as the fourth to tee off. 35-40 yards of movement on the 5th hole.
Detailed conditions look to the other reviews. Greens healthy a closer cut and roll and they'd be a real challenge. Bunkers need some tlc. Off the course edges thick with desert brush near impossible to extract without a drop.
I enjoy a course set out in nature without housing bordering holes. This is Desert Dunes. Good golf and more potential for the future. I'd support them with another round of play when I'm back there.

Played early on a cloudless warmer than normal (42degrees) morning start. Ended up in SS golf shirt last four holes. perfect. Joined with husband/wife members. POP 4 hours Robert Trent Jones Jr. (1999)
Course all around in great shape all areas. A few fairways have patches of brown and maybe a soft spot or two. Bunkers well kept machine manicured firm with 3/4" fluff. Greens have been verticut but are rolling true and very quickly. Making it a very enjoyable day rolling the putts.
Everything else great bev cart out beer cold.
Always thumbs up.

Our usual Sunday second out spot when we play here. This round joined by Tim. POP 3.25
Update the GPS is up and running and so useful even for those with course experience.
Covid protocols but with loosened county conditions snack bar open for take out and beverage cart making the rounds.
We played winter rules and I used a club length a couple times to get me out of tree trouble and through the green you could play it either way. Many times playing it down was fine. Most grass cut low and not dormant. Some thin areas. Good roll outs in fairways.
A chestnut tee boxes on 11 and 16 need attention and re-leveling and seeding.
It's the greens that are very challenging here today rolling very smooth and quick.
Great to use the golf moose voucher here. Recommend.

Over all rating if there is a course in better shape with-in 75 miles of my home. (NE Sacramento) tell me so I can play there.
Troon managed course. Tee'd off at 11 and a bit of slow POP (4.5ish hrs) was all that hindered a great round. Other than a few sprinkles on the last three holes.
With winter weather some lee way may make it into my reviews. Here its not necessary. At the end of the day knock the grass clippings off your shoes (no sticky mud) and put the clubs in the trunk. A dry winter season so far but the turf conditions here are close to ideal.
Greens rolled great at med/fast held shots with spin.
Fairways 8/10 no brown spots rolled out appropriately.
Bunkers good a couple shots hung-up most rolled to bottom.
Tees above average.
Covid protocols in place with expected restrictions. No inside dining. Snack shack open for outside service.
+$20 if you'd like the single cart otherwise share with divider. GPS

Multiple reviews by me here. Must have played since August '19 but here it is short and sweet.
First out for the 1st round of 2021. Just off frost delay temps at high 30's quickly rising to a low 50's finish. Our scores high 40's to low 50's as well.
Course conditions very playable but winter conditions, Everything cut down tight rough and fairways alike. Preferred lies winter rules suggested.
Greens are good to real good fast and mostly smooth. Bunkers could use a machine groom.
Overall I'd rate the course in transition.
A good course to play if you can get the good rates.
Better than the neighboring Darkhorse for sure for customer service

A day-trip down and back (388 miles) may skew this review and the fact that we got runover in our GK cup match here today.
A sunny day breezy an mild high 60's.
Go to Briggslaw for accurate review of the Mountain and Valley Combo which we also played with Eric and John GK'ers we met for first time, and enjoyed playing with.
Didn't use practice areas but did notice the practice green near bag drop pro shop area looked shaggy and hoped it was not representative of course conditions. It wasn't but the best green on the course by far was the 8th (our 17th on the Valley course) a short uphill 255 yd par 4 that Alex chipped in for birdie from above the hole. I then parred the 9th a par 5 with a large Oak tree in fairway in landing area of drives providing interesting look. Too little too late for our match. Refer to forum post of GK Cup for details of that from the winners!?
Greens were bumpy, healing from maintenance. Playable and one bump helped me par first hole from 15 feet. Fairways tight and dry mostly good lies, rough almost non-existent in some areas. Helped keep ball out of junk in others as did the mounding pushing errant shots back in play often. Some areas of GUR thin dry spots. Course knowledge would help a bit.
A fun residential course. The facility looks like it's a blast in non-COVID era coming back not soon enough. Due to those restrictions it made it a record day trip down and back from Sacramento area for me. Driven through nearby many times. Happy to have reason to stop and enjoy the canyon area of Santa Clarita.

Played 9 holes 11/19 afternoon under mild fall conditions. For a $16 dollar to walk & $8.50 for a can of bud and IPA draft a pleasant stroll in the foothills.
Greens rolled well showing the evidence of aeration holes darker than surrounding areas. Otherwise smooth medium pace. Should be completely healed soon. Many other parts of the course are reseeded including many tee boxes and teeing areas moved to front tees. Bunkers ok a few muddy from recent 1"+ rain day(s) prior.
Covid protocols and extra $5 if you want your own cart. Good time and didn't lose a ball. a few pars including #2 uphill par 4.

Early out Sunday cool 42 degrees mostly sunny to a pleasant sunny back 9. The transition to winter conditions continues. The Ridge is always a challenge (see michaelko review) and is in great shape with the exception of a few wet fairway areas and a few tee boxes being reseeded which were closed. (no effect on white tee yardage) mostly affecting the blue tees moving them up.
The greens have been small tine punched and sanded probably ten days ago or so. Almost healed and will by next weekend I'd expect. 8th green had a indentation line and sand running across it another had the same track near an edge not in play. Bunkers machined worked and first one in the ones I visited. No rakes out.
Other than check-in didn't go into CH and didn't feel uncomfortable in anyway with masks interactions with staff or other players. Covid protocols being followed as would be prudent in most circumstances. Bev cart out for the day and met at the usual spot on 16th hole starting beverage / food service.
Always just fun at The RIDGE recommend.
