Tee boxes- 3/5. Many uneven tee boxes

Fairways- 4. But the yardage markers are minimal.

Bunkers- 2. Several were raked. Several were hardened mud.

Greens- 5. Many are elevated and uneven. Not difficult, but not flat.

Given the recent flooding, the course was in good condition. The three or four holes that were affected turned out not to be an issue. I could drive over the affected areas, but even if you couldn't, it really wasn't much of a problem. The rest of the course was in really good condition. Greens and tee boxes on all holes, and most all of the fairways were just fine. The views were great. Definitely would play again. Don't get a sandwich from the restaurant.

Greens very tough to land and stick. Need better attention.

We were with friends, 3 couples, and we stopped to have a bite after our round. They ran out of wings. 2 days prior they ran out of Coors lite. At the bar I waited patiently as 2 others came behind me and got served first.

At the pro shop, Chris, was very good and suggested how we could book in future to take advantage of good rates and the meal deals attached.

Considering the flood damage this course had it has recovered well. Still some areas that need to come back to its original state. Number 9 sand traps in front of the green are ground under repair. Fairway and rough on 18 still needs work. Overall is good shape. Pace of play was good. Beverage cart was out.

Pro shop made suggestion to book directly through Tahquitz as we could get as good a deal with food included as we did through golf now.

We played Tahquitz Creek last time in Palm Springs several years ago and quite enjoyed it. Not so much this time.

The place was HEAVING! we struggled to find a bay for the Practice Range..

We were then told that they were running half an hour behind on tee-off times.

Why?

It was obvious. There were too many golfers for the number of available carts.

Why?

Gaps between tee-times were 7 or 8 minutes, so with 2 courses and 4 per group and a 4-hour round, they need 130 carts minimum. My guess?

They are 8-10 carts short.

Starter was least friendly of any of the local courses.

Practice Bays and Course were obviously over-played and had suffered some flood damage, albeit being (partially) repaired.

It was a good golf course to play with a nice variety of holes. In good condition considering the damages caused by the February storms. Ho le #9 still in rough condition, but glad it was open for playing.

For a first time player at the course, I really enjoyed the layout of the course as well as the fairways being kept up nicely. Due to the conditions of some of the holes getting damaged by all the rain, I still say that it played fair to any kind of golfer.

On arrival, the stater explained that holes 1 10 and 14 were heavily damaged.

He should have added the 9th.

Dried mud instead of grass does not justify the price.

The pace of play was awfully slow. There were three groups on tee off at 8th, same at nine

We ecided to quit after the 8th, having been there for 2 hours and 20 minutes already.

We feel we were robbed.
