Beautiful design, challeging but fair for all levels if you're honest with yourself and play from the correct set of tees. Lots of homes, but typically set back from the course behind the most beautiful water features this side of Pebble Beach. If you can hit a draw off the tee you'll get LOTS of roll and find yourself hitting... More

This is a player friendly course. The course is kept in pristine condition. Challenging layout yet fun to play. I play here almost every weekend in season. Never had a round go longer than 4 hours and 15 minutes.

Troon Golf knows what they are doing. We play numerous courses in different locales managed by the Troon group and always find them to our satisfaction. The Player Course at Mission Hills is just another example of their expertise. Course was in great shape: greens ran true, fairways green and lush, beautiful desert setting with mountains in the background.... What... More

Played the course on a Friday afternoon in March. It was after 1 pm, and was surprised at the lack of staff, once I left the pro shop. No starter and no rangers. It was a free for all, and my wife and I were not happy. The 9 holes took us almost 3 hours to play...ridiculous. THe conditions were... More

We were staying at Mission so decided to play at Gary Players. First class service. Rates are better for guests so be sure to check directly with pro shop. They really take care of you. Driving range is always open with plenty of spots and practice balls on hand. I played 9 holes only at 3pm with family and all... More

Playable. That's the best description of this golf course. It's scenic, pretty, has some of the best greens around....I could go on...but it's best attribute is its playability. I golfed with handicappers ranging from 4 to 30 and everyone of them thoroughly enjoyed this course. Great condition, great layout....well done Mr. Player!
