Yes this course is hard, yes golf is hard, get over it. If u want a challenge then here u go. If u want to be a baby and complain about how the course fairways dont slope to the center and the greens are too fast stay home. But if u really want to test ur skills then play it.... More

PGA West was the first of the stadium courses that Pete Dye brought into mainstream golf. I had not played it in over a quarter century, but this weekend I teed it up again there, and it was a fun experience. The course can play long if the wind is up. Fairways are fair sized but the treat are the... More

This was my first time to the Palm Springs area so I wanted to make sure I played golf a couple of times while I was there. I live in Wisconsin about an hour away from Kohler where Pete Dye's Blackwolf Run and Whistling Straits sit. So, I am very familiar with Dye's designs and layouts of his golf courses.... More

Too many bad players accepted without an handicap minimum. Play is too slow and we loose the rythm. The surrounding views are just WAOUW!

Played the course on a recommendation but we were very disappointed. Tricked up Pete Dye course with hills and moguls just for the sake of it. Hard to see where balls land and where to play. Very expensive and wish we had booked the Nicklaus course instead.

About as difficult a course as you can find, and I search them out. Wife is a 10 index and this was almost too much for her. Agree with other reviewer that average women will just be overwhelmed. Ground undulating, bunkers deep, greens surprisingly flat. This is Pete Dye, and you will see his signatures, including 10-20 foot deep hidden... More

Actually played to my HCP. But I did shoot a 39 from the white tees on the front. Back shot 43 but had to grind the whole time. Very Challenging and left me exhausted but in a good way!

Where they play the final of Q school, so you can see a few budding pro's wandering the course honing their skills. Decent test and off the backs some really nice looking holes. Enjoyed this one. 2nd best at the complex

A tough but playable Pete Dye course - one of his most attractive but could have been in better condition.
