Wonderful layout. Greens were slow and hard to read. Typicla Dye course with railroad ties everywhere and water. Walkable with the traveler package. Clubhouse is very good.

The course was in very good shape having new grass. The ref was terrible and many balls were lost. Bring your own GPS as there is not one on the cart. The service is good as it gets. Good rates if you are staying at the hotel

This was a decent course, a little on the easy side. The greens were very flat and frankly way too easy. The nicest thing about it was the course is well shaded which is super important in the hot summer... other courses don't offer nearly as many places to escape the sun which after 10:30 is intense (at least in...

SeattleChris001, Thank you very much for your feedback! We are happy that you enjoyed your round of golf at our facility. You may give our Pete Dye Resort Golf Course a try during your next visit. It is a little bit more challenging for most golfers. Again, we appreciate your time at our facility and hope to see you again... More

Went to Gary Player golf course for a charity golf event through work. Very Nice course. Played on a Saturday. Only dis-like was this large course only had one beverage cart so it took forever for girl to come around.

Just didn't think this course was on par with the Dye course at the resort. For the same course you're getting more value with Dye. A lot of greens on the Player Course allow you to run the ball up. Also, didn't think it was as in good shape as the Dye course, which is right on the property of... More

While I'm not a fan of winter dormant grass in the rough, the Gary Player Course at Mission Hills was great. Just admire the contrasts and get out there. The course was in very good shape and the greens were running fast and true. This course offers good value and can test your abilities as a golfer. Lots of teeing... More

At $89/round this was the least expensive course we played during our week in Palm Springs. We had played the Pete Dye course during our previous visit and this course was recommended to us as the prettier of the two at Mission Hills. It is that. It is a nice course to play with a reasonable selection of tee lengths... More

Thoroughly enjoyed this beautiful course. Lots of opportunities for trouble but a great layout. Rentals a bit pricey but includes access to driving range and six new Callaways.
