Course itself was really good but I should have been told that the greens were punched. It could have made my round more manageable. I was expecting a top condition course but instead I was upset every time I putted on the green. Thankfully Golfnow is giving me credit for what I paid to play. I'd like to play this course again when it's in top condition.

He would play this course again.

Stayed at Marriott’s Desert Villas 11
at Palm Desert so I decided to play one of the two courses they have there. The Valley course was well maintained, rolling fairways and slow greens. Pace of play was average. Unfortunately the weather was over 100 degrees with high humidity.
Couldn’t wait to cool off with a cold beverage!

I made a reservation to play the Palm Course and did not find out that it had been aerated until checking in at the pro shop. They told me I could play the Valley Course, which had been aerated two weeks ago. They said the greens still had some sand, but were smooth, however somewhat slow. I agreed to play. Big mistake. First of all, the greens were so slow that it was like putting on my carpet. They still had sand and had holes from the aeration. The sand traps were mostly made up of dirt that had hardened. On the second hole, the greenskeeper was mowing the grass around the green and did not stop while I made my approach shot or while I was on the green. The cart lady came driving down the middle of the fairway rather than to the side, which really annoyed me. The driving range was closed on one side, but the side that remained open had very few balls in the containers and most of them were filthy. I quit after two holes.

He would not play this course again.

Biggest gripe is that we tee off about 20-25 minutes late. Numerous groups were stacked up to tee off for some reason. Can only attribute this to poor course management. Pace of play was not great either, taking about 5 hours to complete 18. On the bright side, course was in good shape, although the greens were too slow for my liking. We had an underpar voucher which made this a great deal. All in all, not a bad and would play again for the right price.
