My wife and i have played Silverock before but this was the first time since the new holes were introduced. Each time we play we find it a real challenge but it is a great course and a privilege to play. It is unlikey to make you feel you have mastered golf but if you want to test yourself, this is the place!

3.5 hours to play SILVER ROCK? Rhetorical question folks. It was a blast. Always a favourite course. Sure some

Of the holes have been reconfigured but what a fabulous course. Top 5 in the valley for a public course. Marshall even stopped by a couple times to chat and watch some PGA type shots. Highly recommended from a guy who plays a lot down here but lives in CANADA....eh! Kevin Wensley.

The course was in excellent shape. The staff were friendly and accommodating. The only downside was the 25-35 mile an hour winds. Made for a pretty tough round. Overall I would play this course every chance I get.

great course, maintained beautifully.The breeze had no impact. This is a gem folks, don't skip it. I've played it dozens of times and it always impresses. One thing though. The marshal is nowhere to be seen,.If we had an issue or problem, no one is around except some guy that whips by in a cart, never makes eye contact and never stops to ask how its going. A course marshal should be talking to each group at least once per round, no exceptions. This happens every round, other courses they make sure to chat and ensure everything is to our satisfaction.

great tee time, starter was personable, had a sense of humor and the 3 other guys in the group...outstanding! greens and fairways were ideal and in great condition. Cart girl was around on a regular basis. course Marshall however was non existent.....why do we not see him/her at least every 3-4 holes? if even just to ask "hows it going guys, anything we can do to make things better etc? This is the 2nd round where such an entity was rare to be seen. Clubhouse drinks after on the patio overlooking the course was a great way to end the round. Ill be back for sure.....

Lots of forced carry's, there seemed to be as much sand as grass. It looks a lot more intimidating than it turns out to be as most of the waste areas are very playable. Didn't start off well when a gardener found a snake just outside of the pro shop.

This is a very nixie golf course! Arnold Palmer did an outstanding job designing this course. Every hole is a challenge. They are building a new Hotel so you have to excuse them a little but it doesn’t affect the course itself. The water, waterfalls, all the landscaping is beautiful! You need to hit it straight here because of all the sand traps and desert scape. The staff was also very friendly and accommodating.

Silverock is a fantastic course and I totally enjoyed playing there. The course has been reconfigured since the last time I played and I prefer it before the reconfiguration that is due to adding houses and a hotel to the landscape.The course was in great condition and the greens were fast and true. This course has beautiful vistas and is one of my favorites and is challenging and fair for all levels of golfers.

I got a great deal for $60, but in the heart of the season, I cannot afford the higher rack rate because I play maybe 3 times a week. I was a little disappointed that I did not see any Big Horned Sheep this time. With the new changes, I think that the sightings will be far less. I recommend this course to everyone.

Normally Palmer designs golf courses with obstacles that make you think your way around the course but this one was different. We are 62 and 11 handicaps and from our tees it was difficult to know where to hit tee shots that would not be punished and sometimes it didn't matter, you were anyway. Not fun, just silly and bring balls. Meanwhile, there is a lot of construction going on next to the course (houses?) so don't go for peace and tranquility.

Rode the Blues (6313/70.6/129) in slightly less than 4H early morning. Paired up with Jeff, Richard and Gary. The weather was clear, windy and in the 90's.

SilverRock offers many tee shots that are nicely camouflaged with a large amount of both fairway and green side traps. Numerous driving areas appear tight. However, this is not a tight course overall with generous fairway landing areas for the most part once you get around bends and look back at the tee.

The tees were lush and well maintained. Only the par 3's needed divot repair.

The fairways were lush, with a few brownish spots from the heat here and there. Nicely maintained and good to play from.

Same for the rough, mowed low and nicely maintained.

The sand traps were in excellent condition. Good quality sand that was thick and plentiful. Tough to play from with large lips and long carries if you short sided yourself.

The greens are hard, not firm in the heat and the wind. Smooth, medium fast and even well struck irons would release a good amount.

The customer service was outstanding as always here. From the complimentary range balls all the way to the cart guy cleaning your clubs after the round. Cart gal out making the rounds. One of my favorite layouts in the Palm Springs area. It is away from any houses with a decent amount of lakes, canals and native areas to keep things interesting. Definitely recommended.

Rode the Blues (6313/70.6/129) in 4H, 15M twilight with Mark, Janet and Brent. The weather was clear, fairly calm and around 95.

The tees were lush and well maintained. Level with few divots.

The fairways were lush, mowed down close and played firm. Nicely maintained and good to play from.

The rough close to the fairways was overseeded and is very lush. Farther away from the fairways is Bermuda coming out of dormancy.

The sand traps were in excellent condition with a generous amount of fine grain sand. These traps are tough to play from with large lips and potential long carries.

The large greens have a decent amount of contour/slope. They are very firm, putted medium fast and were smooth. Even high, well struck irons would have alot of run out.

SilverRock is a fun & pretty layout. The customer service is always excellent here. Drink cart out making the rounds. All grass range included in your fee and the carts have nice GPS. Good restaurant onsite. Highly recommended.
