Picked a gorgeous day to get out to Marriott’s Shadow Ridge today after snagging a GolfNow hot deal for around $99 at noon-thirty. There’s a really nice range to warm up on and the pro shop and other amenities are really spot on to start the day.
The course itself is simply perfect right now. Literally not a single complaint from me about any single aspect of this great, fun and challenging track. The fairways have excellent coverage from tee to green – never had a bad lie all day. The rough is very consistent and just challenging enough to know you need to do better on the next hole, but not overly penal. The tee boxes are all flat, level and perfect – great variety of tee boxes as well for every golfer.
Bunkers were in very nice shape, both the fairway and green-side varieties. A joy to hit from every time. And the greens? Wow. Glassy and quick, but very receptive to shots and flawless rolls. Ball marks? None to speak of at all. And the greens are super fun – a big challenge but in no way gimmicky or overly dramatic to make you suffer. They’re just phenomenal.
It’s an incredibly varied layout at Shadow Ridge and every hole is unique and Faldo’s design offers many different options on a number of holes of how to attack the green. We also saw the cart service numerous times throughout the day and simply couldn’t find a single thing wrong overall. Also helped to shoot a pretty darn good round once again at this fun destination.
If you’re planning a trip to the Palm Desert area anytime soon, and have the option to play anywhere you want at a reasonable price for great conditions, don’t think twice about playing here. Just do it. You’ll come away with a serious smile on your face, unless of course #18 messes with you to end your round on a sour note! It’s a tough one, but the rest of the day will still keep you in a good mood no matter the result.
