I love the game, even when its not going great on the course, just being out there is great. I am a casual golfer, but I do like to shoot my handicap, I may call myself a name or tow when I get out of my swing but who doesn't at times. Like to ride, do not care much for walking a course, but rarely play one that you would want to walk anyway. I do not smoke or drink while I am playing on the course, will stop and have a cold one at the turn or after the round. Like to play during the week day but will also go out during the weekend. Like to tee it by 9:30 am usually but do make a change if needed, wkends are by 10:00 no later on most courses unless I can make the guess that hackers are not going to be on course playing zig zag golf. Lets get together and play, always looking forsomeone who loves the game to tee it up with.

Played Moorpark Creekside and Canyon on 5/29/18 with tee of off scheduled for 9:30. The starter although trying seemed to have problems locating various groups before us thus we were pushed back until 9:50. These courses although similar in setup could not be more different in appearance.
CREEKSIDE.. Fairways seemed to be rather thin,slightly brown and had plenty of roll. Lies were tight and provided some challenging second shots. The rough on this 9 really does not come in to play as it is hardly visible.
Bunkers, mixed bag of fair to poor sand, heavy,brown and quite thin for my liking. Several showed under lining and appeared not to have been raked.
Greens , just fair in my book, greenish brown or yellow, several unrepaired ball marks with plenty of dry areas or even dead areas around the edges and rather slow. TEE BOXES good with plenty of grass coverage with surprisingly little damage to be noted and quite level. I would say pay attention to the fairway alignment to the tee though several require a good look to get your barring.
CANYON. Fairways are green with great coverage providing good lies. The biggest difference here is the rough, green heavy and quite penal, long enough to lose your ball.
BUNKERS, were dry with lite brown sand with plenty of coverage. Some are deep and others are rather shallow but all gave fair chances for different types of recovery shots.
GREENS, in my opinion a mixed bag of good to maybe great. Held shots well and spinning the ball was little to no problem. Much faster than Creekside with plenty of break. For both courses you certainly want to remain below the hole, down hill putts here are horrifying on both courses.
TEE BOXES, Very good again little to no divot damage, level and green.
I would not be willing to pay the rack rate here at this time, but we received a playing rate of 55.00 due to a program they have installed here for Korean players.» Close

Played 5/3/18 afternoon tee time of 2:00 pm. Having never played here thought it would be a good way to close out my 72 holes in two days. Ooops big mistake. The course rests along side of the northern foothills at the North end of Golf Center Parkway. Arriving we found wind to be blowing at 20 and gusting to 30. I had no idea what I was in for. Practice areas and about average, nothing that would make you take noet other than its quite the haul to get there from the clubhouse. Fairways are firm and green although thin, and lead to many shots running farther than planned. Rough really not existent on this course as everything is shaved very tight, causing many problems and really difficult recovery shots. The sand here is average at best, some bunkers providing good lies and others providing little sand and limiting recovery options. Greens hard and very fast, making even good shots look horribly bad. Chipping on to the greens here is difficult at best. I found early in the round that putting from some 20 yards worked just as well. Don't be afraid to use your utility words here and bump put from distance. There is no fringe here, its greens and then see you later ball. Putting is difficult, with breaks you can and can't see plenty of problems below and above the hole. False fronts are the norm and provide devious reminders of just how hard it is to get the ball close to the pin here. Not my favorite or even something I would consider playing again unless I was practicing for just this type of course.» Close

Played Firecliff on 5/2/18 with a 8:10 tee time, starting off my 72 holes in two days outing. Always one of my favorites and for me always in the top 3 of Palm Springs golf. Day started off quite cold and rainy with winds blowing about 25 mph making any good score unlikely. Rain stopped about a third of the way through our round but heavy winds persisted. Customer here rivals any of the big time public courses you can think of. They certainly care about the players and cater to your every need. Simply put this is one of the Nicest and most well maintained course you will ever come across.
Practice facilities are some of the best if not the best for any course I've played in the valley. The highlight is the practice green, which can be misleading to actual course conditions, not here however it was a perfect match to conditions experienced on the course.
Tee boxes , level perfectly groomed and little to no damage its a 10 here. Fairways green lush and with little to none divot damage left unrepaired, providing fair roll. another 10. Rough is penal, how penal will depend on how bad your shot was, on this day it was devastating as wind blew balls everywhere and anywhere!! Another 10. The bunkers here are dubious and frightening, deep with great sand and acceptable recovery rates if your skilled ion all recovery shots, miss it however and bogey or double bogey comes into play. Slap another 10 down for the sand. Now the greens, fast, faster and fastest. Breaks from every angle, undulations, and some of the hardest collection areas I have ever seen. No damage noted on any green complex to be seen. This course has everything you would want, fair challenge, terrific views, and if your not thinking or trying to bite off to much penalties lurking everywhere. Play it if you haven't already» Close

Played Shadow Ridge on 5/3/18 as part of my 72 holes in two days golf outing. Its hard to rate any of the desert course that are good so I'll do my best and not compare it to the other course reviews that will follow.
Customer service was outstanding, from the moment you drive up your feeling a star. Clubhouse is well stocked and check in is easy. Practice facilities are well kept, green and in very good shape. Everything you can ask for, great practice bunker area, chipping, and terrific practice green.
Course is lush very green, fairways well maintained with few unrepaired divots, and providing a descent and fair and descent amount of roll. Rough is somewhat penal depending on how fair you stray, and how or where the ball comes to rest. Most of the time I had a good shot at getting club face to the ball, however I did experience plenty of grass between the clubface and ball on several occasions as well. Bunkers were great terrific sand quality and plenty of coverage, allowing for any and all recovery shots. Greens were quick, almost to the point of fast, with plenty of break, undulations, and several difficult collection areas. Tee boxes showed little ware and very few unrepaired divot damage. Terrific course and always a most for my round of 72 holes.» Close
