First time playing Used cart Windy weather

Rode the Silvers (6301/70.4/121) with Gary, Elizabeth and Deelane mid day in 4H, 15M. $54 special off their website. The weather was in the low 60's, partly cloudy and breezy.

My first time playing the Ted Robinson design that featured some nice elevation changes early on the back 9. Six par 3's, Five par 5's, unusual for a par 71 layout. The par 3's even from the next to back set of tees were 182/136/202/185/233/162. Not only demanding overall, but I think I used six different clubs with some playing down and some playing up.

The course was in really nice bordering on immaculate condition across the board.

The tees were lush and level. The tees are also huge, with plenty of room to rotate tee markers.

The fairways were lush and played foirm and fast.

Best rough I have played out of in years. Uniform, really lush, thick, no bare spots. Looked like a high end lawn.

The sand traps had nice, fine white sand and were very nicely maintained.

Excellent greens, firm and medium fast with few ball marks. Downhill putts were treacherous. I saw the lines vetry well on these greens.

Quick, efficient check-in. No drink cart, no GPS on the basic carts. All grass driving range. The layout will not wow you, but it is a very fun track with scoring opportiunities for good shots and enough trouble to catch off line shots to keep things interesting/fair. Constantly up/down hills, rarely a flat hole. Really spread out, would be a beast to walk. Definitely recommended.

A great laid out course but found the greens very inconsistent. There was a total lack of markers advising distant to greens or where to aim or distance from greens, we found the greens very rough and the ball did not roll properly. Also found the greens very inconsistent in roll speed. . Course would do well to mark 200, 150, and 100 yards to green. Very little markage indicating where to find the next hole. This was my first time playing this course and will not likely go back.

A first rate layout, beautifully maintained! Each hole presents a different challenge, and the greens are really tricky. (Remember Indio!). Excellent pro shop team, friendly and courteous. Well worth the drive... best greens in the Valley!
