Great time Monday morning with some fellow GK Review Guru playing a golf course that in my experience most closely resembles golf’s paradise garden. The Celebrity Course at Indian Wells Golf Resort is simply stunningly beautiful. Near perfectly maintained in every way. On Monday I could only think of a small handful of times I have played a golf course in better condition in my 30+ years enjoying this game. I’ve posted some photos from the round here on Greenskeeper.org that I will let speak for themselves.
Regarding layout, we played the Blue tees measuring 6600 yards which provide a perfect blend of long and short holes. Every hole on the course is unique and beautiful in its own way. It’s a tight course off the tee at times with deep exceptionally architected bunkers everywhere. The greens are challenging and undulating but not too severe. All the green complexes are heavily bunker-ed and stunning to look at. This course is loaded with little streams, ponds, fountains and waterfalls. Flower beds are present on just about every hole (free drop from them). The majority of the doglegs are right-to-left. The course feature gentle sloped terrain with same hills here and there.
As far as service and amenities, top-notch. The course personifies a high-end golf experience. The clubhouse is grand with a modern design. Facility staff are always friendly, professional and helpful.
I’m looking very forward to my next round at Indian Wells Golf Resort!

Played in the GK event on 3/13 with Johnny, RGM and Abbacat. Awesome group to play a round of golf.
The course was in incredible shape. Green grass everywhere that looked smoother than the carpet in my house. This is one of the best manicured public tracts in the valley. Tee boxes were nice. Level and plenty of coverage. I never had an issue with finding a level spot to tee from. Fairways were green, lush with plenty of roll out and never a bad lie. The ground was firm but taking a divot was effortless. No hardpan anywhere in the fairways that I saw. Rough was just long enough to be penal. Lies could be anything from nice and sitting up to down deep in the grass. Some of the non-free drop planter boxes can be EXTREMELY difficult! Bunkers were good to excellent. I found the sand in most to be nice, a little wet for the early morning. Not tough to play from with a good swing. Greens were really smooth and running good speed. Much nicer than the last time I played here at the GK year end event. I had trouble gauging speed and left a bunch of putts short.
Staff and amenities are top notch. Thanks to Johnny for setting this event up and to the Indian Wells staff for a great morning of golf.

Played 3-13-17 in about 4 hours with fellow GK Gurus, John,Wendy, and Rob. Tee boxes were close to perfect, level and lush with hardly a blemish on them. Fairways were just great with good
roll-out and close to perfect lies. Rough was in great shape, about 1-2 inches and pretty easy to hit from. Found a few bunkers all of which had plenty of nice sand a fairly easy to hit from. Greens were very nice rolling medium pace, smooth and holding well struck shots. Very pretty course with close to perfect conditions.
