Rode the Blues (6739/73.1/140) twilight in slightly less than 3H. The weather was sunny, breezy and around 105.

Pete Dye design that features moguls and large bunkers galore that make for challenging sight lines. Many of the traps here the average golfer needs to steer clear of to avoid big numbers. Bad shots are really penalized here. Miss the fairway or green and your recovery shot will almost assuredly be a side hill lie, often an extreme side hill lie. Even relatively good shots barely offline can quickly result in a double or worse.

The Bermuda tees were lush and well maintained, only some par 3's needed divot attention.

The Bermuda fairways were lush with most divots already repaired.

The Bermuda rough was lush and still thick even though mowed down.

The plentiful sand traps were well maintained with good quality sand. One I was in was thin and could have used more sand. There are many large traps on this course, a few with 10' to 15' lips to play over. Avoiding the sand here is a higher priority than almost any other course I have played.

The Bermuda greens putted nice. Medium speed, smooth for Bermuda, consistent and firm.

The customer service was top notch. No drink cart twilight. Numerous water stations on the course. Good GPS on the carts. Nice all grass range that was unfortunately closed today. Very challenging layout in good late summer condition. Definitely recommended.

Rode the Blues (6522/72.2/134) in slightly over 3H mid day using Forelinx. The weather was sunny, breezy and around 105.

Nicklaus Tournament is one of the toughest chipping courses I have ever played because of the firm raised greens that are surrounded by steep banks on 2 or more sides on almost every hole. The layout features mounds along the side of fairways, large/deep bunkers, several split fairways and some expansive sand waste bunkers. Not in as good condition overall as Stadium, but still quite playable for late summer.

The Bermuda tees were mostly lush and decent to play from.

The Bermuda fairways were mostly lush and nice to play from. A few hardpan areas along the perimeter on some holes.

The Bermuda rough was lush and mowed low but still thick.

The large sand traps are plentiful here. Many have decent size lips and need to be avoided in most cases because of the raised greens. Mostly in good condition, decently maintained.

The Bermuda greens putted medium speed & were firm and somewhat bumpy.

The cart gal was out making the rounds numerous times. Excellent customer service from everyone involved with the golf. Plenty of water stations on the course. Good GPS on the carts. Nice all grass range that was unfortunately closed today. Definitely recommended.

Rode the Purple tees (6507/71.2/128) in 2H, 45M twilight. The weather was sunny, calm and around 110.

Firecliff is usually is better playing condition than Mountain View, but not today.

The Bermuda tees were lush and nice to play from. Level with few divots.

The Bermuda fairways were lush.

The Bermuda rough was mowed low, is lush and generally good to play from. Good thing it's low, because it is thick Bermuda.

The sand traps were decently maintained but were too thin for my taste.

The Bermuda greens putted medium speed and were smooth and firm. Nice!

Excellent customer service on every visit here. Plenty of water/ice stations on the course. Nice GPS on carts. No drink cart person out this afternoon. Nice all grass driving range with a good chipping area & practice green. Fun layout to play, definitely recommended.

Rode the Purple tees (6676/72.1/136) in 2H, 45M midday using Forelinx. The weather was clear, calm and around 110.

The tees were mostly lush. Level with few divots.

The fairways were lush, firm and nice to play from.

The rough is mostly lush and mowed down, Good POP rough, not penal. Generally nice to play from.

The green side traps had good quality white sand and were decently maintained. The waste bunkers were firm and not as well maintained as the green side traps.

The Bermuda greens were firm, somewhat bumpy and medium speed.

The customer service is always excellent here from when you drop your clubs off out front to when you pick them up out front. The all grass driving range is included and above average. Nice chipping area. Drink cart out making the rounds. Good GPS on carts. Plenty of ice/water stations on the course. Definitely recommended.

Rode the Golds (6794/72.8/128) in 2.5H using Forelinx twilight. The weather was around 110 and clear with a little breeze.

Nice layout with 18 solid holes of golf. Fairly wide open course with a good mixture of holes. Few forced carries other than several holes with lakes. Huge difference in the par 3's when I move back to the Golds. 233, 205, 126 & 193 compared to 192, 175, 110 & 162 from the Blues. That is an average of 25 yards per par 3, you start adding 2-3 clubs on every one and the whole course perspective changes.

The Bermuda tees were level, well maintained with few divots and mostly lush.

The Bermuda fairways were nice to play from, lush.

The Bermuda rough was mostly lush, mowed down and not overly penal. Good to chip out of.

The sand traps were good. Well maintained, mostly firm with medium texture brown sand.

The Bermuda greens putted medium speed and firm, so even well struck irons would release. Few ball marks because of the firmness.

The customer service was limited, but excellent from everyone encountered. The carts are equipped with GPS. This would be a challenging course to walk because numerous tees are a hike from the last green because the course is split up between three different residential complexes. Could use more water stations on the course. Recommended as a good middle of the road alternative for the Palm Springs area.

Rode the Orange Tees (6538/71.6/130) with Matt, Perry and Ron in around 4.5H mid day. The weather was over 110, muggy, clear and fairly calm. Thanks to Johnny for setting this up and for IW for having us out!

Really like this John Fought layout that features 7 sets of well spaced tees. Par 72 (37-35). The course is a good mixture of flat and rolling hills. Challenging layout featuring many holes with fairways that are either narrow in the landing area or require turning the ball to get in prime positions. The course conditions were excellent overall.

The Bermuda tees were lush and nicely maintained with few divots.

The Bermuda fairways were lush and very nice to play from.

The Bermuda rough is mowed down and not overly penal with good coverage.

The sand traps were well maintained with fine sand.

The Bermuda greens were smooth and putted medium speed. Firm with few ball marks. These large greens have many subtle undulations with few straight putts. Large challenging green complexes.

I appreciate this layout more with each round played here. This course would be challenging to walk since there are numerous tees hundreds of yards from the last green. The customer service is always excellent here. Plenty of ice/water stations on the course. Nice GPS on the carts. Cart gal was around numerous times. Complementary range balls on an all grass range is a plus. Highly recommended.

Rode the Greens (6621/71.5/130) in less than 3H twilight using Forelinx. The weather was in the low 100's, clear and fairly calm.

Nick Faldo designed layout, fun to play. The landing areas on most par 4 & par 5 tee shots are very generous in width. The par 3's offer a good variation in length and look. Several risk/reward par 4's that could produce birdies or doubles. Two par 4's over 460 from the next to back set of tees.

The Bermuda tees were mostly lush, with only a couple needing divot attention.

The Bermuda fairways were semi lush and firm. Well maintained, usually nice to play from.

The Bermuda rough was mostly lush and just tall enough that the ball sat down enough to usually be punitive. Nice to chip out of.

The green side sand traps were well maintained with good quality white sand. Some fairway traps are waste bunkers & less maintained. Numerous traps on this course are large, deep, and need to be avoided by most amateurs.

The Bermuda greens were firm but held approach shots with some run out. Hardly any ball marks because of the firmness. They putted medium fast speed and were mostly smooth.

Water stations on the course every couple of holes. Good GPS on the carts. Practice facility is all grass and includes balls with your fee.The customer service was good from everyone encountered. Drink cart out and around numerous times. Recommended.

Rode the Blues (6386/70.7/124) in 3H using Forelinx mid day. Joined by Lamitchw as a rider for 9 holes as he rehabs from shoulder surgery watching my mediocre play. The weather was in the low 100's and clear with a little breeze.

The Bermuda tees were mostly lush. Well maintained, few divots and I had no issue finding a level stance with good grass on all tees.

The Bermuda fairways were lush and nice to play from.

The Bermuda rough was mostly lush, mowed down and not penal to play from.

The sand traps were above average. Well maintained and firm with medium texture brown sand.

The Bermuda greens putted medium slow and were okay once you got the speed down. They are firm, so even well struck irons would release. Stopping it relatively close to your ball mark was unlikely.

Solid course in good shape. Nice layout, but not a destination course. Fairly wide open layout with a good mixture of holes. Few forced carries other than several holes with lakes. The customer service was excellent from everyone encountered. Minimal on course staff during the summer. This would be a challenging course to walk because numerous tees are a hike from the last green because the course is split up between three different residential complexes. The carts are equipped with GPS. Recommended if you desire a reasonably priced course in the Palm Springs area that is not too demanding, nor too easy.

Rode the Greens (6705/71.3/124) in slightly over 3 hours on a prepaid GolfNow deal for $3.49 (with $10 off coupon) including cart mid day. The weather was around 100, breezy and clear.

The Resort course is definitely the better of the two Tahquitz courses. Older, traditional track without many upgrades. Few homes around the course is a +. Like the layout. however, the playing conditions were subpar.

The Bermuda tees were semi lush, mostly level and in decent condition.

The Bermuda fairways are mostly generous in width and were semi lush with some brown patches.

The Bermuda rough was mowed down low. Mostly semi lush, but there were many browned out areas that were thin to semi hardpan.

The traps were the worst part of the course. Decently maintained with mostly fluffy dirt but there were tons of rocks mixed in.

The Bermuda greens had some brown patches and hardpan spots around the edges. Several also had many Silver dollar sized crab grass invading the greens. They rolled medium fast speed and were so firm that even high sand wedges released 15-20'.

No on course staff and the restaurant was closed. Few water stations on the course. The customer service was excellent with the pro shop. No GPS on the carts, which is a challenge because they could definitely use more distance markers. All they have are rocks on either side of the fairway @ 150 and lines on some cart paths @ 100 & 200. Usually a good budget alternative in the Palm Springs area, but could not recommend until after fall over seeding based on what I experienced today.

Rode the Blues (6313/70.6/129) in 2.5H late afternoon using Forelinx. Very few other golfers out playing. The weather was clear, breezy and around 100.

SilverRock offers many tee shots that are nicely camouflaged with a large amount of both fairway and green side traps. Numerous driving areas appear tight. However, this is not a tight course overall with generous fairway landing areas for the most part once you get around bends and look back at the tee.

The Bermuda tees were lush and well maintained. Only the par 3's needed divot repair.

The Bermuda fairways were lush, with a few thin spots here and there. Nicely maintained and good to play from.

Same for the Bermuda rough, mowed low and nicely maintained.

The sand traps were in excellent condition. Good quality sand that was thick and plentiful. Tough to play from with large lips and long carries if you short sided yourself.

The course is in excellent late summer condition from tee to fringe. However, the Bermuda greens are a very mixed bag. The 4 new greens on the back nine have not fared well their first summer, they all have numerous bare spots. They seem like they are just trying to nurse them through late summer until fall over seeding? Not a huge amount of contour on these greens, few tiers. Overall, they are firm but held shots well. Fairly bumpy and medium speed.

The customer service was outstanding, from the complimentary range balls all the way to the cart guy cleaning your clubs after the round. One of my favorite layouts in the Palm Springs area. It is away from any houses with a decent amount of lakes, canals and native areas to keep things interesting. Definitely recommended.

Rode the Greens (6621/71.5/130) in 2.5H mid day using Forelinx. The weather was around 100, clear and calm.

The Bermuda tees were mostly lush, with only a couple needing divot attention.

The Bermuda fairways were semi lush and firm, well maintained.

The Bermuda rough was mostly lush and just tall enough to make you think twice when using longer clubs. Usually nice to chip out of.

The green side sand traps were well maintained with good quality white sand. Numerous traps that appear to be green side from the tee are actually 25-50 yards from greens, so you can get unusual length sand shots here. Some fairway traps are waste bunkers & less maintained.

The Bermuda greens were firm, putted medium fast speed and were mostly smooth. They held approach shots with some run out with hardly any ball marks because of the firmness.

The Faldo layout is fun to play and suits my eye. Numerous risk/reward par 4's that could produce a 3-4 or a 6-7. Two par 4's over 460 from even the next to back set of tees. The par 3's offer a good variation in length and look. There are numerous large fairway bunkers to avoid, but the landing areas on most par 4's & par 5's tee shots are very generous in width. The customer service was good from everyone encountered. Drink cart out and around numerous times. Water stations on the course every couple of holes. Good GPS on the carts. Practice facility is all grass and includes balls with your fee. Recommended.

Rode the Greens (6537/71.4/139) in 5H mid day. Paired with Rob, Brian and Marge. It was in the high 90's, overcast and calm.

Tom Fazio design. Many holes have severe elevation changes. Common them is that you climb long distances in carts, then play down hill, then repeat the process. No holes were severely uphill. The layout is tight in spots with desert scape surrounding nearly every hole on both sides. If you are not straight this course will become penal real quickly.

The Bermuda tees were excellent with only a few divots here and there. Level/lush.

The Bermuda fairways had been vericutt and were maintained long, almost like light rough. Only part of the course not excellent or exceptional.

The Bermuda rough was mostly lush and maintained at a level that the ball often sat up. Usually good to play from.

The sand traps were the best I have played out of in a long time. Fine, coarse sand that was excellent to play from and they were beautifully maintained.

The Bermuda greens were smooth and medium fast. Best Bermuda greens I have putted on since I played the sister Canyon course here last year.

Only negatives are that the basic carts do not have GPS and that this complex is REALLY spread out. You park close to a mile from where the practice facilities and first tees are. This course would be almost unwalkable because of this plus on many tees you ride hundreds of yards from the last green to again play downhill. The customer service was exceptional from everyone. Cart gal out making the rounds. Plenty of water stations on the course. Nice, all grass driving range which includes range balls. Excellent layout, one of the top dozen courses I have ever played, very enjoyable to play. Highly recommended.
