“Crazy tough course, but gorgeous”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

I got my money's worth, as I experienced every bunker and water hazard. Course was impeccably maintained. Nice to go in to Ernie's at the end for a yummy lunch. The Bloody Mary bar on weekends (BACON!) is quite fun, too.

“Challenge of a golf round but enjoyable non the less”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

Spent 4 days in Palm Springs and TPC West was one of the golf courses that our group played while we were there. From the online booking of the tee time to the beers after the round the whole experience was great. Course was in great shape and was playing long and tough after just coming out of the overseeding process. Beautiful day and well worth the greens fees as we got what we expected and just enjoyed the day.

Certainly would play the course again on my next visit to Palm Springs

“Challenging, but worth the effort”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2012

The Stadium Course is rated #5 on the toughest courses in America. The course gets this rating due to narrow fairways with few even lies. This makes if tricky to hit the small undulating greens which play very fast. If you miss the fairway, you find yourself in thick wiry grass or the famous Pete Dye bunkers (think deep, then think deeper).
Course was in great shape and played quickly. Make sure to save your best shots for #17 Alcatraz & #18 Coliseum. They can definitely remind you how difficult the course can play with all of the water.
If you are passionate about golf, it should be on your play list - not for beginners!
