Golf Course Review Westin Mission Hills PETE DYE Rancho Mirage California
Reviewed by: Nickesquire, Rancho Mirage, CA
Rode the Golds (6158/69.5/125) in 4H, 15M mid day using Forelinx. Matched up with Steve and Chris, we played at a relaxed pace under partly cloudy, calm conditions in the 60’s.
The tees were lush/level and well maintained for divots.
The fairways were lush and well maintained.
The Bermuda rough is the only part of the course not over seeded and is VERY mediocre at this point. Thin with areas of hard-pan all the way to a few places that are dormant and fluffy is not a good place to go with lush fairways close-by.
The sand traps were nicely maintained with a decent amount of good quality sand.
The greens putted nice, firm and medium fast. They held irons well, softer than usual after the recent rains.
This course would be difficult to walk as numerous tees are a long way from the last green. GPS to the front/middle/back of the green only. The customer service was excellent as usual here. Plenty of water stations on the course. Drink cart out making the rounds. Good practice facilities with complementary range balls although the range tops out about 220 yards. Fun layout, Recommended.
