Walked the Oak Tees at 12 noon today 2/22/2021 joined by 2 brothers Nick and Alex who were a blast to play with. We had perfect weather 75 degrees and very little wind to speak of today. POP was 4 hrs 50 minutes behind a packed tee sheet. With weather this good and the start of the golf season and such a popular great course I can see why it was packed! Very friendly staff today in pro shop. Soule has a nice sized putting green, separate chipping green/bunker and their range is on mats.
Greens were the highlight of the course rolling beautifully, semi-firm with little to no ballmarks. Pretty big greens complexes here and like most Gil Hanse design courses if you can putt here you can putt most places due to the undulations and size of the greens. Rated 8/10.
Fairways are more thin than lush.. firm but like Mike stated in the previous review just enough padding at this time in the fairways. Come spring and summer Soule has some of the nicer fairways in the county. Rating 6.5/10
Tees mostly all level and in good shape. Rated 7/10.
Was in greenside bunkers on 3 and 16 that had perfect sand and easy to splash out of. No rakes. Rated 8/10.
Rough is thinner and dry and in decent shape for this time of year. Rated 6.5/10.
Great layout, prices, weather, staff and scenery. Highly recommend Soule.» Close

2nd round today 2/16/2021 was at the Mission Hills North Gary Player course joined by Pedro, Ron and Peter. Really laid back fun group to play with. We had a constant 15-20mph wind with gusts up to 25mph. Beautiful temp around 75 degrees even with the blustery wind conditions. Looking back I actually played this course many years ago but don't even remember one hole.
Hit a couple shots on their massive all grass range and rolled a few putts on their putting green. My buddy and I had the burger and fries which were awesome. Was told they have one of the best breakfast burritos around(next time). Very friendly cart barn and pro-shop staff. We teed off around 12:50pm and finished at 5pm.
Man the greens were in great shape, Firm(talking no ball marks on iron shots) and with the wind if you were short sided they were firm enough for chips to roll and extra 5-10 feet by the hole. They looked as good as they putted. Highlight of the course Beautiful and rated 8.5/10.
Fairways had a great green contrast in relation to the dormant brown rough. Mostly all fairways had a tighter would say semi-lush base. Pleasure to hit off of. Rated 8/10.
Tees were lush and level and in great shape. Rated 8/10.
Was not in any bunkers so can't comment or rate them. There were plenty of them out there.
Rough was dormant and brownish color. Mostly mowed down but around the greens it gets tricky here with I thought with very grabby rough. Rating 7.5/10.
I liked the layout. Some good birdie holes, some nice water features where greens are tucked in between water and bunkers. Homes lining some of the fairways. I know cause I hit a house right of 9 and got a huge lucky bounce back into play(lol).
Would recommend this course but I do like Silverrock, Indian Wells Celebrity, Classic Club, Desert Willow Firecliff and a couple others before this course.» Close

Played Desert Dunes for the first time this morning 2/16/21 out at 7:25am with Pedro, Johnny and Gus. Really laid back fun group. Weather was blustery with wind 15-25mph with gusts in the 35 range. No frills pro shop, they have a huge grass range, nice putting/area next to the first tee. Carts I don't believe had GPS. Friendly pro-shop staff.
Man I really loved this layout and place. Dogleg's, straight grip and rip, some tighter holes, enough sand, water features and natural desert areas to keep you honest and in talking with some locals at the cart barn I guess this layout used to host amateur qualifier tournaments. Really loved hole 10 and 11 hitting through a shoot of trees and 9/18 was a trip and had a huge shared green complex.
Greens were quick, holding with spin or higher trajectory shots. They were not super smooth and contained some minor bumps but did not roll too bad. Rated 6.5/10
Fairways were mostly green and semi-lush and in above average shape. Rated 7/10
Tees(I played the gold stones) were mostly level, semi lush and in good shape. Rated 7/10.
Was in back greenside bunker on 7 that was wet but easy to splash out of. Rating 7/10. Looks like most bunkers were on the muddy/wet side.
Rough was thin in places, lush in places and overall would say in the 6/7 shape. I was lucky enough not to lose any balls in the clovers that are just off some fairways(we spent a couple minutes on the first couple holes looking for balls that were submerged in the clovers).
Reading past reviews I think some of the ratings are to low. My rating should come out close to a 6.75/7 shape. Also would agree with most reviews I read in relation to the wind. Although I had a good round the wind was pretty strong today and should be considered if you come out here for a round.
I would highly recommend the layout here and I thought the conditions were in the 7 range.» Close

Rode the Blues yesterday 2/1/21 teeing off around 11:40am getting in 36 just before 4:30pm. Weather was perfect mid to high 60's with no wind. They have an all grass range and a separate grass warm up area below the range off to the left. Very friendly staff and cart staff. The resort is still closed but will be reopening soon. They are doing some construction work(not on the golf course) but on the sidewalk area right in front of the restaurants close to #10 and #13 tee. Carts are equipped with 2 sand bottles for fairway and rough divots and a nice GPS system. POP today on a Monday was great as I played through just one group all day.
No rakes in the bunkers, most cups had foam inserts, masks to be worn in pro-shop, no ball washers.
Played here at the end of December and the conditions are on par with my last review.
Fairways had ample coverage. Some moist and damp areas due to the recent rains but most of the those areas were closer to the green. Fairway rating 7/10
Greens were in good shape. Smooth holding shots very nicely. You can throw some darts in there even with long irons. I hit a towering 6 iron on 16 and ball maybe moved an inch on the green. The greens have some nice swales and undulation to them. Most greens are guarded by strategic traps. Green rating 7.5/10
Tees mostly level and lush. 7/10
Rough was lush in spots, thinner in others and in decent shape. The kikuyu around the greens is not as long and penal at this time as it can be in the middle of summer. 7/10
Not really fair to rate the bunkers after a downpour of rain for 2 days without rakes. Most bunkers were raked but some were hardpan in areas with nice soft sand in other areas.
The layout here is very fun in that the front nine is tight and short with both par 3's very short and the back nine is long and more open with both par 3's playing over 200 yds from the tips.
I would recommend the course to anyone at this time and I know with the golf season approaching us and warmer weather this place will be even better in the months to come.» Close

Rode the purple tees yesterday with John, Ron and Lucas. Very fun group to play with! We had cold and windy weather. Pop was good with just some minor waiting on the last few holes.
My first time playing this side as I have played Firecliff a couple times. I enjoy the Firecliff layout just a little more but this side was also a blast to play! Enough room off the tee, some risk/reward par 5's and a couple strong par 3's. This side has a little more water in play and also contained enough bunkers like it's sister Firecliff course.
Greens putted beautiful! Fast and firm. Thought they held full shots nicely. If you were short sided on chips it was challenging to get them into gimme range. Hardly any ballmarks. Rating 9/10
Fairways full and lush with hardly any divots. Nice sand mix included on carts. Perfect lies. Rating 9/10
Was in 2 greenside bunkers and 3 fairway bunkers. All bunkers I were in were nicely raked and in good shape. Rating 8/10
Rough nice and green and lush 2-3 inches. Perfect shape. Rating 9/10
Tees level, lush and in great shape Rating 9/10
Great practice facility, friendly staff. Really fun layout. Perfect conditions. Would love to come back on a better or regular weather day.
Highly recommended.» Close
