We’ve waited all year for the results , and the results are in.  Greenskeeper.org proudly presents it’s Best Playing Conditions Awards for 2016.

Not to be confused with our other award “Worth the Green Fee,” “Best Playing Conditions” is awarded to golf courses open to the public listed on Greenskeeper.org that stand out above the rest with our site users.  These golf courses distinguish themselves by providing consistent, exceptional playing conditions.

The job of the superintendent is the life blood of the golf course industry and most important contributing factor to enjoying a golf experience.  A golf course is a living, breathing organism whose health is constantly in flux.  It takes enormous dedication, resources and expertise by a superintendent and their staff to provide excellent turf conditions.

Golf in Indian Wells during the winter time is Fantastic.
It could not have been any better than at the Indian Wells Golf Resort – Players Course, where the Player’s Play. They overseeded the golf course in September so, it was in great shape.
On December 20, the fairways were in fantastic shape, the tee boxes were lush. The rough was fair, an extra 1 inch thick when compared to fairway. The greens were nice and rolled true. The golf guru’s could not have asked for better scoring conditions, as true Players.
I highly recommend that you check out the Indian Wells Golf Resort courses for your next golf outing. You just can’t go wrong.

Catching up on a review, had a great time Tuesday with fellow GK Review Gurus at Indian Wells Golf Resort. The Celebrity Course is one of my very favorite tracks. To me it’s like playing in a beautifully manicured desert garden. One of favorite aspects of both Indian Wells Golf Resort courses is the bunkers. Dramatic in natural, perfectly positioned, challenging to escape yet not unfair. Add to that the spectacular clubhouse, service and impressive on GPS…this is a complete high end golf experience.

As far as condition, excellent, and in few weeks, immaculate. Whenever you play a golf course coming out a rye grass overseeding the greens are going to be on the slow side yet likely exceptionally smooth. In addition fairways will be extremely green, hardly any divots yet still a tiny bit thin in spots until a few more cuts can be done. With every cut, and this goes for the greens too, the blades of rye grass get larger and hence denser the coverage. This results in faster greens and lusher fairways. Some courses do a good job overseeding, Indian Well Golf Resort does a fantastic job overseeding. That’s why the course is already lifted virtually all its cart path restrictions and in excellent condition early in the season.

Highly recommend play the Celebrity Course now and both Indian Wells Golf Resorts course this season. Can’t wait to play the Players Course on 12/12.

Why Did We Expand the Regions?

It’s simple.  Greenskeeper.org has been growing.  We expanded the number of regions because golfers like you have reported about golf course conditions of the golf courses you play.  In short golfers come to us if they want informative, relevant golf course reviews and it’s all due to your, our GK Community’s, diligence.  You let us know your experiences and well if we hear about it everyone else does too.

Why so Many Regions?

Golf is an experience and every experience is unique.  Different golf courses offer different experiences.  What we look for in golf course reviews offers a little insight into every golf course we play.  Not just one point of view but many, and by providing many different points of view you get a clearer picture of what each golf course has to offer.  To that end we felt it necessary to provide regions with their own highlighted golf course.  Local players can enjoy the fact there is a great facility they can play just around their corner.  Golfers looking to experience new golf courses can play these and experience first-hand these unique golf experiences.  Put simply, we allow not just your high-end. daily fee courses to shine but the local municipal as well.  They all deserve a fair shot and they all deserve to shine.

Look for additional Golf Course highlights from our Best Playing Conditions for 2016.
