Wife and I played the Tribute Sunday around 11am with a good deal from IdealGolfer. First time playing this course and I was impressed. Definitely one of the better conditioned courses we have played thus far out here in the DFW/Okla area.

* impressive club house with all the "Scottish" theme thing happening.
* driving range - grass, but with some areas behind it roped up due to upcoming construction it was a bit confusing driving up to it. Did not see a short game area though.
* course itself, very solid, best greens we have played here, plenty of sand in the bunkers.
* views - wow!!!! some gorgeous views of lake Lewisville from several holes.

if you are out in the area, this is a must play for sure.
Tobi and I played our first round of golf since moving to Texas. Selected this course to be our very first round here in the North Dallas area.

The good - layout is very interesting, as one would expect with 18 famous holes being replicated.

The Interesting - Gas powered golf carts and the mansions that surround the course.

The Bad - greens were running about a "6/7", this was painful all day to judge. Many bunkers do not drain well as we found many with standing water from the rains from days before.

Due to the heat and the greens, you can get early weekend tee-times for around $55, but when the course is in tip top shape, you can expect to pay closer to $100

Not a lot of restrooms on the course - so plan properly.
Finally got out to play this highly regarded and suggested course.


Easily in my personal top 3 public course I have ever played. from a course condition, it probably is in the top 2. We have seen the Golfweek note saying Rams Hill is the 3rd best public course in California behind only Pebble and Spyglass, well we have played both of those within the last year, and course condition-wise, it is FAR superior to Pebble... many reviews already, I can only say as a first timer I was blown away. Tee to green there is simply nothing out of place.

MUST play..

you suck it up and make the drive....

from lake forest it took us 2 hours and 35 mins. to get there and it is a really nice drive to just chill out and enjoy.

I would rate this in the 9.8 to 9.9 area....only reason not to give a 10 was "lack of GPS" and "no mayo on the club sandwich"

Hey Golf Digest - this course absolutely deserves to be in the Top 100 US public courses list for 2017 and TOP course list in California.
Played out here Saturday at 11:00 with wife and Gkers Donna & Willie.

first time for all of us here.

Very impressive resort course, the place is impressive as soon as you hit the range.
Here are the highlights:

1. all Grass range with expansive chipping, putting, and bunker area.
2. Very green course, fairways look a mile wide, but that is just an illusion, the fairways are actually fairly tight with wide rough sides that were quite deep on the day we played
3. Bunkers had all new sand and were perhaps even a bit too fluffy
4. Greens were simply perfect...smooth, and looked like the greens you would see at many of the PGA tournament courses.
5. Hole layout was a bit boring after a while...sort of all looked same.

no wind to speak of

all in all it was WELL worth the $45 each we paid.

I would recommend this as perhaps for a 2nd course to play during a stay and play weekend up in Borrego Springs.....obviously behind you-know-who
Played with the GK Plays groups late Sunday morning on a mostly perfect golf day, a little windy and chilly during the later holes, but just still a great day to hit the links.

I haven't played MtW in several years only due to the drive from OC.

Fun course, good staff and overall pleasant environment to get your "target shooting" going.

This is a short course playing only around 5800 yards from the blue, but the course has teeth.

no spraying the ball around here!

I personally found the greens challenging to read all day, overall they were in good shape, though I saw quite a few putts bouncing a bit more than expected in route to the hole.

course conditions tee to green were overall very nice.

I absolutely recommend you play here if you are nearby, and if you are making a trek to play here, I would say it is worth the drive.
Played early Saturday afternoon on a $10 GN deal. First time playing this course and had LOW expectations after reading all the recent reviews.

* Some of the more recent reviews were a bit misleading as far as conditions were concerned - in my humble opinion.
* you KNOW you are hitting off mats, unless you are not paying attention.

Driving range - very nice considering you hit off mats. reminded me of the Industry Hills setup.

Easy course to walk in about 3 hours.

Greens - 90% of them were excellent, rolled well and looked sharp. There were a couple of greens that had small sections that looked bad.

Fairways on the par 4s were nothing to get excited about, but you could just move the ball to the closest clump of grass and move on.

we rather enjoyed ourselves out there and for the price, it was more than acceptable.

the worst part really is just dealing with the SNA noise.
played with GKers on this our 2nd round of the day Tuesday at around 1:30pm. First time playing this course for our group.

Course conditions were decent for the Palm Springs Area (which means conditions were very nice compared to comparable priced OC Courses).

front 9 was fairly mundane with wide open fairways and well suited for seniors and soaking wet golfers playing their 2nd round.

back 9 had a bit more interest and teeth.

since the course was well soaked from the rain and continued to rain on us during the round, I can not really comment on the detailed conditions.

I enjoyed the round and for $21 online rate I found that to be a great value.

Carts - basic, no GPS
Played out here with fellow GKers on a rainy Tuesday morning. This course does like the GK folks and seems to always hook them up with deals.

Course conditions were pretty darn good. Obviously the rain had an effect during the round.

Still one of my favorite tracks out in the desert.

GPS on cart - very helpful
Cooler stocked with water is a nice touch

Highly recommend you get to Indio and play this track.
Played with the GK Cup group today (in which we crowned a new Champion), Congrats Keith!!!!

anyway, the course was in pretty decent condition, fairways where mostly lush and sometimes thin.

Greens were somewhat bumpy I thought, speed was medium.

Greenside bunkers - kind of thin I thought, not a ton of sand to splash out.

rough was challenging enough today, some areas that were "Patchy" were more than challenging.

all in all it is still one of my favorite OC tracks and at the rate we paid it was MORE than worth it.
Played Labor day morning with wife and GKers rstang06 and dcricket. First time on this course.

Clubhouse - really sprawling and poorly labeled, I guess members know where they are going, but first timers are left to guess.

fun and interesting course with water sneaking around on several holes...

Course was in typical Palm Desert condition - really green and fun to play.

#18 might be one of the tougher finishing holes I have ever played - a 427yd par 4 with water in play.

Nice carts with coolers, no gps, but plenty of water stations and restrooms.

This is one of those courses you need to play a few times to understand better where to hit and where to avoid.

we had a blast out there today and would recommend this course.
played Sunday morning with GKers rstang06 and dcricket, course was in as good of shape as my last review.

Rough was uncut and pretty penal.

seems like sand was recently added in bunkers, pretty fluffy.

Greens were VERY receptive to shots.

Course is starting to grow on me and for $42 with cart, it is a pretty reasonable round of golf.

bad for the handicap as the 119 slow from the whites is VERY low for this course.
Played Saturday at 10:23 for $45 using their course tee time booking. Haven't played this course since the 2014. Long course...sort of.

Check in easy and guys are nice and polite, range was grass and reasonable to get warmed up on.

POP was about 4.5 hours. a little slow but that seems common with EVERY dude playing the 7000+ blues.....what is up with the typical guy golfer? cracks me up. Probably the same guys that complain about POP.

Fairways - decent, quite a bit of thin lies and browned out drought created issues you see almost everywhere in SoCal.

bunkers - REALLY above average. Plenty of sand.

Rough - spotty at best.....inconsistent and patchy every hole

Greens - really nice....not too many ball marks to fix....rolled medium speed I suppose.

I had a nice time and would recommend the course for sure. Didn't suite up well for Tobi, just too long for her, so probably a 1 and done for Tobster on the South track.
