Played Sunday in the GK match play final. First time playing this course. I read the reviews of both courses so had high expectations. The service, layout, and conditions exceeded my high expectations.
I figured bag drop was closed, so parked, grabbed my bag, and walked to clubhouse. Half way there I was met by an attendant in golf cart - he took my bag, confirmed my time and group (nice he immediately knew I was with GK when I told him the tee time), directed me to the clubhouse/golf shop, and told me my clubs would be waiting on my cart. Nice service!
Encountered a few other course employees on my way to check in, was greeted by each one. They really made me feel welcome. Check in was easy, shop was well stocked, and was given a quick overview of layout and directions.
Range / Practice Area - large putting green, separate chipping area, and large, all grass range. I could spend a day just on the practice area.
Course - Wow - One of the best conditioned courses I've played. Tee boxes level, fairways were close to perfect, allowed for some roll and always a great lie. Rough was not too high, a little sticky, thicker in some spots, and was fair but made you think about the shot. Greens were firm and had a little more roll out than expected. Unless you had a high wedge, play short of your target and you'll get some roll.
I haven't played too many Palm Springs courses, but I think this is my favorite so far. Wide enough fairways, lots of bunkers and water that make you think about placement, and a nice mix of holes keep your interest throughout the round.
Hope I can play the other course next month. Highly recommend.» Close

Played here Saturday 2/13 in our GK match. First time here. Gary had Under Par vouchers so he checked us all in, so can't comment on pro shop service. The snack bar service was very good - friendly service. Starter was friendly and kept things organized and moving well. On course marshals out monitoring and letting us know they were doing what they could to keep the on pace. We finished right around 4.5 hours.
My playing partners covered most everything in their reviews. Not an overly long course, and some room to miss (more so on the front 9 than back 9) - but definitely a course you want to play from the fairway. Greens were nice. Tee boxes and fairways in winter shape. I like the layout (would like it more if my game were in better shape) and this could be a great course with maintenance work. Good value for what we paid, and couldn't ask for a better group to play golf with. Was able to enjoy a beverage with the boys on the patio after the round which was nice to finally be able to do again.» Close

Played with the rest of the Gurus on Sunday. Our group was lucky enough to use this round for a 3rd and final team match. Pace of play was around 4 hours, maybe a hair more. Pleasant surprise the pace moved this fast given the full parking lot when I arrived.
I had played here once before, many, many years ago. The two things I remember from back then - the canal that runs through the course and how crazy the wind can get. The canal is still there, but, fortunately, we didn't get much wind to speak of. Course is in great condition, green all around. Fairways were great, a little soft but excellent to hit from. Rough was green, short in most places although there were some spots that were pretty thick. Greens were firm, held most shots, and were on the slow/medium side.
Nice all grass range. Good size practice putting green. Excellent service from cart attendant, starters, and pro shop staff. Well run and keeping everything on time.
I really enjoyed this course - a little more forgiving that other courses I've played recently, which was great given the state of my current game. Playing with a group of GKers made it even better - always enjoy meeting new GK golfers. Even though we were playing a match - our group was laid back, gave each other the needle often (in a fun way), and overall had a great day. Highly recommend playing here.» Close
