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 played the Gary Player course and found it really in great shape and fun to play. The staff was friendly and helpful. We will play it again when we are in Rancho Mirage.

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!

Troon advertises about good pace of play. This course holds true as wife and I finished 9 in less than 2 hours. Very nice course and greens roll well.

This is the less crowed course at the Westin but I like it even better that the Pete Dye. The slope variation is excellent and plenty of water to make it challenging. The staff seems more laid back here, less up tight! The course is always in wonderful condition. The greens stick year round, unlike the Pete Dye. The hot... More
