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

enjoyed a great round of golf on the beautiful cause tha wanders through the Mission Hills neighborhood. The greens are in excellent shape. The fairways are brilliantly green, the rough is brown and lined with rolling hills and bunkers. Water is a feature on several holes. The scenery is wonderful with great views of the San Jacinto mountains from many... More

We had a great round on what is a very well kept and lovely golf course. The greens are very straight forward. There is a good amount of water and bunkers with some nice challenges. Overall a great golfing day out.

My wife and I recently played the Westin Mission Hills-Gary Player Course. The course is enjoyable, fair, and in great shape. The fairways, greens, and bunkers were in terrific shape. There a number of tee boxes to accommodate different levels of players and it is couple friendly. My wife and I both found the course to be a "fair" test.... More

I've meant to play this course near Palm Springs for about a decade and was not disappointed with my first round here. My partner and I were paired with two ladies, one of which lives on the course who helped us with local knowledge. We found it scenic, enjoyable, and a great resort course. The staff were hospitable and courteous... More

I really liked this course. Never had so many one putts. The rest of the course was pretty challenging. Lots of sand and some water. My husband like the Pete Dye course better but I liked this one more because I was putting lights out. Very pretty course.

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
