The fairways barely have grass. The greens are something akin to a shag carpet. The layout of the course is laughable. Truly, the worst excuse for a golf course I've ever encountered.

I'm surprised that GolfNow continues their relationship with this course.

A poorly maintained course suffering further from the Valentine’s Day rain event. Golf Now rate of $25.- not bad but when I wanted to show up early 45 mins the pro shop gal said it would have to be another $15.- for twilight rather than super twilight. Had it not for the mountains and actually knowing I was in Palm Springs, I would have thought I was playing some worn-out, hick-town track in rural who-knows-where? Nice enough layout and challenging greens so with a good bit more maintainance and repairs, it would be quite playable but don’t get caught paying more than $25. Ever.

We appreciate your feed back for it allows other golfers to know that they are not allowed to tee off 45 minutes ahead of time due to our rate change.

We will continue to make improvements from the rain damage.

Thank you and have a great day!

First off, I like Mesquite GC and have played there numerous times. But today, I played it with some friends from San Francisco and did NOT realize how much the recent storm has damaged it. I wish the Pro Shop would have warned us about the playing conditions instead of pointing us to the temp scorecard with numerous hole revisions. We still did not get a feel for the damaged course until we finished 17 and 18. But like I said I have played it before and would have rated it a high 3 star course. But right now (until it is fixed) it should offer discounted golf rates for the tough condition of the course.

My goal was to get a quick morning round in at an affordable course and Mesquite fit the bill. The pro was friendly, and as a single the other golfers happily waved me through . I got 18 holes in just over 2 hours. The course was in fair condition, with decent greens, though a couple of holes were damaged by the floods last month. For my first round of the year it was just what I wanted. I'll be back.

Our tee time was directly after the Men’s Club Championship time. Due to the important essence of their round (to them) everyone after had to play at their ego driven pace.

The course staff came out to let the following players know the reason for the really slow pace. When accepting tee times after the before mentioned Mens Club Mesquite should have not used the regular time spacing but one of at twice as long for a period of time, reducing it for another shorter period of time and then back to the regular spacing.

I realize that Mesquite is in business to make as money as they can, but doing it by inconveniencing the other paying customers is not a long term positive.

Wish I had known the condition of this course prior to booking a non-refundable tee time. Lots of bare spots due to flooding. The back nine has a few holes where the tee box had to be moved due to the damage - starting with turning a par 5 into a par 4, and then finishing up with 2 80-yard par 3s.

No snack bar or cart person either, so bring your own coffee/water/snacks.

Unfortunately Mesquite has suffered greatly from the feb 14 2019 rains. They have done alot of work to fix it since then. Use it as a warm-up or knock around course right now, dont pay full price and you will enjoy it for what it is.

We understand that 3 weeks ago the course was washed out by rain our compliant was green fees should have been at a reduced rate as there was temporary tee boxes and greens. Have plaid this course in the past and was good but under today’s circumstances they should have offered a discount rate due to water damage.

It is truly not fair to rate this course right now. It has been closed for a week and under major repair after significant flooding on February 14 and 15. Many holes are shortened or rerouted. I am sure that it will be much better after the repairs are completed and the course is back to its normal length and routing.
