The Pete Dye Course at Mission Hills is a terrific golf course. It’s easily one of my favourites in the valley. It’s a fabulous layout with a great mix of holes. It was in mint condition when I played it. The staff was great and got me out much earlier than my allotted tee time. This course is on my list of places to play every time I visit Palm Springs.

Arriving golfers must park a few hundred yards from the golf clubhouse and rely upon staff to circle through and pick them up. A phone number, which is not properly answered, is used to call to prompt pick-up when staff fails to come by. My wife and I , as well as several other arriving golfers, were not picked up on a timely basis, and the phone number, when called, was auto-answered, instructing us to call again with no pick=up. After waiting, I walked up perhaps the length of a par 5, aroused the cart staff from their conversation, and obtained help from a friendly cartman. Upon arrival at the pro shop, the lone attendant was engaged in a phone call and did not bother to acknowledge any of the arriving and unduly waiting players. A very poor start to an otherwise fine round and course.

Rode the Golds (6158/69.5/125), playing 36 twilight as a single in 5H using Forelinx. Mid 90's, fairly calm and clear. Only saw one 2some and another single after 3pm on the whole course.

Most of the landing areas are generous in size, but there is OB down both sides of most holes and numerous holes have water that comes prominently into play. Not a grip it and rip it course.

The tees were lush, mostly level and well maintained.

The fairways were lush and well maintained. Few unfixed divots.

The Bermuda rough is beginning to come around with the recent hot weather. Still far from lush with scattered areas of hardpan.

The sand traps had good quality sand but did not look like they had been raked today.

The greens were firm, smooth and putted medium speed. They held irons with some run out.

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 all around, no drink cart today. Plenty of water stations on the course. Good facilities, complementary range balls although the range tops out @ 220 yards. Fun layout, but could not recommend at their rack rate. Playing conditions are decent, but a notch below most courses close by.

As a Resident of Rancho Mirage, I play the Pete Dye and the Gary Player courses regularly. They are consistently in good shape with beautiful greens and well maintained rough. Traps are a little disappointing as most are now mud or dirt. Staff is courteous and helpful. The one area of concern was the restroom on #4. We were last off at 1:42PM, and when we stopped for the restroom the Ladies Restroom was very dirty. In HIGH need of cleaning. I know we were last out, but a Resort has to keep up for their guests in my opinion.

The fairways were in good shape but the rough was rough. Different kind of grass in the rough. Almost looked like it was done that way to conserve water. Rolling hills throughout so if you went off the fairway you had a downhill or uphill lie. Same around the greens. No complains. Played 4 hour round - foursome.

Booked this round through GolfNow, got in at $66 a person with a 1230 tee time. Course was in excellent shape except the bunkers, they could have used some attention.....looked like the staff hadn’t raked them in a while, more sand in some places than k5ers but still quite playable. Greens were very tough, firm but not exceedingly fast. The winds had decided to blow the day we played and it made tough greens even harder to manage and quite often you couldn’t stop the ball on the greens. The 18th finishing hole was a true finishing hole with water down the left side and it came into play for everyone. Would be a tough course for high handicappers but would still recommend it.

The course was in good shape and the staff friendly . However the pace of play was slow 4,4 hours with no course marshall to attend to the slow players . Also there were no washroom facilities on the back nine and the club house , pro shop and clubhouse washrooms were all locked up and closed at 500 pm , We completed out round at 6:30 , no pro shop , nor rest room, no bar ,no nothing after the round . Needs to be changed . Otherwise a nice golf course , but not a great one.
