Good course condition considering the time of year. Pace of play very good. Will definitely play course again during summer months. Please bring back the Ice container that you used for years instead of that over worked anemic ice machine now being used. Anything will be better during 110 degree heat than the ice dispenser currently in use. Question what are the plans for hole 14 and the big hole that use to be a nice water hazard.

Always enjoy playing this course but this round was very, very SLOW. Unfortunately there was a group of five or six players enjoying the 4th of July Holiday and not considering others basically bring play down to a near stand still. However this will not deter me from playing there again and with any luck that group would have finished their round by then.

Hello, thank you for reviewing the course. We apologize for the delay of play during your round. This is by no means the standard we strive to achieve. With an uncharacteristically full day, we work hard to accommodate everyone who visits our course and allow our guest the chance to complete their rounds. With that in mind, we are working to best control pace and allow everyone to finish in a reasonable amount of time. We will continue to look for ways to improve. We are glad to see you rated the course conditions and layout to be great during your game. Thank you for playing Palm Desert Resort Country Club. We hope to see you again soon.

Love the layout of this course, however, there are signs of poor course maintenance in areas. That said, the tee boxes and bunkers were well maintained and the greens were very good. Patchy fairways and hard packed mud /sand around some of the greens took away from the overall pleasure of this course.

The course is in pretty good shape. The 14th water hazard is dry and not a nice sight. As a foursome we were pushed by two different twosomes of whom neither would play through. The clubhouse facilities were closed, I guess normal for the summer? This course plays tougher than appearances would suggest.

Played this course earlier in the season. and had a great time Came back for some summer golf in the desert which can sometimes be tricky. Many courses often close early and reduce their services such as snack bar etc.

Staff was small but attentive. Even poured our group ice cold beer after golf even though the bar was closed at the time due to summer hours.

Course was in outstanding shape and greens were excellent and some of the best I have played overall.

This was our 3rd time at the Resorter this week. The course was empty and well maintained. If you are there early they let you play early. My only complaint is that we tried to eat breakfast there twice and both times left hungry. On Tuesday our tee off time was 7:50 and they said no breakfast until 8:00. There are signs etc that also say 8:00 -so our mistake. Then Monday we tried again at 8:30 and they said sorry no food until 11:00. The 4 of us had to leave and go to a fast food place. It even says breakfast 8 to 11 on a sign in their golf carts. Other than that we enjoyed the course

I was a little reluctant to play after reading a few reviews but was pleasantly surprised, yes the course is just a little dry but what a fantastic layout... with a little water and detail maintenance this could be a fantastic course, I play golf in the area when I come to town a few times a year and will look forward to playing here again

The four of us played here yesterday while visiting the desert for a birthday party. Course was very dry, brown, needs help. Ice machine was not working, so had to go to clubhouse to fill cooler for the cart. Pace of play was fast since no one else was on the course. Can understand why!

Would not play here again.
