Golf Course Review SilverRock Resort La Quinta California
Reviewed by: Nickesquire, Rancho Mirage, CA
Rode the Blues (6313/70.6/129) in slightly less than 4 hours early morning. Paired up with Jeff, Richard and Gary. The weather was clear, windy and in the 90’s.
SilverRock offers many tee shots that are nicely camouflaged with a large amount of both fairway and green side traps. Numerous driving areas appear tight. However, this is not a tight course overall with generous fairway landing areas for the most part once you get around bends and look back at the tee.
The tees were lush and well maintained. Only the par 3’s needed divot repair.
The fairways were lush, with a few brownish spots from the heat here and there. Nicely maintained and good to play from.
Same for the rough, mowed low and nicely maintained.
The sand traps were in excellent condition. Good quality sand that was thick and plentiful. Tough to play from with large lips and long carries if you short sided yourself.
The greens are hard, not firm in the heat and the wind. Smooth, medium fast and even well struck irons would release a good amount.
The customer service was outstanding as always here. From the complimentary range balls all the way to the cart guy cleaning your clubs after the round. Cart gal out making the rounds. One of my favorite layouts in the Palm Springs area. It is away from any houses with a decent amount of lakes, canals and native areas to keep things interesting. Definitely recommended.
