Played DW Firecliff and IW Players with the GK Review Gurus on 12/12. My first outing with the GK group, and what a great day!

Somehow, I had never played the resort side at Indian Wells before this fall. Having played the Players course twice this fall now, I must say this is one outstanding facility. Nice practice areas. The range by the parking lot is cramped, but the range in the riverbed has a ton of room if it is open. The staff was super nice all around.

The course itself is a treat. Being “resort” focused, the course is a little more forgiving than an average desert course, but it is not an easy course by any means – you will pay if you go off line. Conditions are near perfect.

Several of the GK Guru’s tell me that the Celebrity course is equally good, with a bit more creativity in the shorter & easier layout. Sounds like a great 36 hole resort to me.

Second round of GK Review Guru Monday in Palm Springs, fantastic time with good company and a tremendous golf course. Right out of the gate I was impressed with how much overseed and how lush it was. There was next to no thin or bare area on the golf course. Anywhere. Mind you this is December, not January/February when the rye grass has had at a lot of time to fill in. I was also very impressed with the condition of the greens. I was expecting slow greens, as is mostly the case in December in the desert and I got moderately fast and smooth greens. This course was actually in better condition than the Celebrity Course that had finished overseeding before it. While I like the Celebrity layout better, I love both these tracks. The bunkers were meticulously groomed with high quality sand. Tee boxes in great shape. This course was immaculate.

The layout of the Players Course is tough. You got to be accurate off the tee and you better bring your sand game. Once on the putting greens there will be good opportunities to drain some. Very fair surfaces. But the question is getting to the green in a reasonable number of strokes. There is a reason its called the “Players” course.

The service was outstanding throughout the day as it always is with every golf experience I have ever had at Indian Wells Golf Resort. I snapped a bunch of photos. Get ready to drool and start planning on playing there.

played here earlier this week as the second round of a 36 hole guru day. course is in excellent shape and weather was great. customer service was good, my bag was picked up and placed in a cart, taken to the range/putting green area. the there was a putting course for practice and a smallish range area. i only hit irons because the range area seemed somewhat short, and there was a large creek to the left side. the turf there was also very hard packed and tight, which was very different from the course.

starter was very friendly, and we were met on the 1st tee by the head pro and the superintendent. course is in very good condition, the teeboxes were all level and lush. some minor divot damage on par 3s but nothing to detract from the experience. fairways were all lush green grass with minimal divots. rough was just long enough to make hitting out of them tough and keep your mind to hitting the fairway.

unfortunately for me, i couldn’t get off the teebox all afternoon and found myself all over the course, perhaps i’m getting too old to drive all the way out to palm springs and do 36 any more haha. luckily, the water here is crystal clear as opposed to some other courses, and my fellow gurus were able to help me locate my ball in the shallow water several times. bunkers were in excellent condition with good fluffy sand in them and greens are smooth and running true. they were medium speed and putts held their line well. pop was solid at about 4 hours.

the course is in beautiful condition and definitely worth heading out for a round and maybe even a 36 players/celebrity combo. wish i had time to stay a bit longer to have some food, that burger they advertise on the back of the cart looked good. will hope to be back here soon when i’ve got the timing back in my swing.
