Golf Course Review Mission Lakes Country Club Desert Hot Springs California

Reviewed by: Nickesquire, Rancho Mirage, CA
Rode the Silvers (6301/70.4/121) with Gary, Elizabeth and Deelane mid-day in 4H:15M. $54 special off their website. The weather was in the low 60’s, partly cloudy and breezy.

My first time playing the Ted Robinson design that featured some nice elevation changes early on the back 9. Six par 3’s, Five par 5’s, unusual for a par 71 layout. The par 3’s even from the next to back set of tees were 182/136/202/185/233/162. Not only demanding overall, but I think I used six different clubs with some playing down and some playing up.

The Review

The course was in really nice bordering on immaculate condition across the board.

The tees were lush and level. The tees are also huge, with plenty of room to rotate tee markers.

The fairways were lush and played firm and fast.

Best rough I have played out of in years. Uniform, really lush, thick, no bare spots. Looked like a high end lawn.

The sand traps had nice, fine white sand and were very nicely maintained.

Excellent greens, firm and medium fast with few ball marks. Downhill putts were treacherous. I saw the lines very well on these greens.

Final Thoughts

Quick, efficient check-in. No drink cart, no GPS on the basic carts. All grass driving range. The layout will not wow you, but it is a very fun track with scoring opportunities for good shots and enough trouble to catch off line shots to keep things interesting/fair. Constantly up/down hills, rarely a flat hole. Really spread out, would be a beast to walk. Definitely recommended.
