Golf Course Review Eagle Falls Golf Course Indio California

Good news. This course has been open for a week or so.
I played today 6/10/20 at about 9am. The only COVID-19 related measures they seem to be taking at the moment are requiring a mask to go in the pro shop. After that, everything else around the course is normal.
Driving range is open and in great shape.
Practice putting green is open and has the normal cups with normal small flags. This is also true for the course. Regular flags and cups in play. It felt like I had to reach so low to get my ball without a pool noodle in there!
I played the green tees which are the tips. This course isn’t overly long, at 6,700 yards for a par 72, but the tips make a huge difference on maybe 3 or so holes, where one has to literally hike a trail back to the green tee box. Another note on layout is the fact this course has 12 par 4s, and then 3 par 5s and 3s.
On to what everyone cares about:
Conditions where great, and nearly immaculate. Tee to green, lush. Rough isn’t very penal at all but does help slow the ball from running into junk. I really enjoy this Clive Clark design.
Greens were in great shape and rolled medium and pure, with normal flags and cups as mentioned.
The sand traps were interesting. It appeared the course was trying to intentionally keep them damp, so the sand was quite heavy, though I didn’t have a problem playing from them. Rakes were out and along all traps, but I’m sure the hot June sun killed any virus outside, if there is still concern for it.
Overall it was a great day on a great course. It’s a steal at $39 midweek rack rate for summer that includes a first class warm up area and a cooler with ice and complimentary bottled water.
