I don't normally write reviews, but while on holiday in the Desert have found people's reviews so helpful on deciding where to play golf, it's only fair to write one to try and help everyone else decide where to play with the abundance of courses
I played the Mountain Course (Firecliff closed for re-seeding) Thursday 11th of October, for a discounted rate on golf now, however it was still over $100. The property is beautiful, and the staff service and facilities was excellent- as good as Silverrock, The Classic and the Marriott Courses.
HOWEVER! The greens were disgusting- that is an understatement. To pay over $100 for a tee time, where most championship courses are still offering October discounted rates (especially after midday) and have greens in appalling conditions is just not right. Except for about 2 greens, it was like someone had taken long spikes and hacked up every green. You couldn't putt they were so slow- you literally had to hit the ball through every break to get it to the hole. The fact is, i'm being objective here, cause i actually scored one of the best rounds of golf and i putted fantastically- but is not always about the score, it just wasn't fun, and it caused the others in my group so much frustration and disappointment.
What is exceptional is that the tee boxes and fairways and bunkers were probably the best condition out of any of the Desert courses i've played (i've played about 10 in the last month)- the course was quite immaculate for October- but the quality of the greens was SO bad that i would encourage anyone willing to pay over $100 to play golf to definitely consider another option- because there are so many good ones around.
Hope that helps people, and was as objective as possible.
