Booked on GN, for $55. What a steal. This place is amazing. Could rival any top-tier club in the Coachella Valley.
Played the Championship tees (72.1/128/6698). I was the first one out, as a single, and played in 2:20. Started at 7am, and done by 9:20, on an extremely hot day. It was great. Never rushed, and no one ever caught up behind me.  Felt like the longest 6700 yard course I’ve ever played. Many par 4’s over 400 yards.
While not many holes here stand out as ones to remember, the whole course is great. They actually punched and sanded the greens, and they still held shots, rolled true, and were very fast. The sign at the starter said they were running at an 11 on the stimp today.  Tee boxes are flat, level, and no divot damage.
Fairways are so lush and had great lies. No browning, or burned out areas anywhere.  Rough was about 1/2 inch thicker than the fairway, with very good lies.  Bunkers all had white fluffy sand, and easy to hit through.  Greens were punched about a week ago, sanded down too. But they still roll them when healing. They were the best aerated greens I’ve ever played on. Held shots, rolled true, and very fast.I must say that I was very impressed with this place. It’s in a 55+ community on the border of La Quinta and Indio. They pro shop was well stocked and staff was friendly. The starter said they are looking to turn completely private in about a year (semi-private now). When I finished 18, I noticed everyone here had their own carts, some of them really tricked out, haha!

Yes, I recommend even with the punched greens. Rack rate is about $125, but I booked the morning of, for $55. Had an excellent time!
