Played Eagle Glen 2/26. Tee time was 7am. Showed up at 645 with no one in sight on the course. Instead of letting me cruise out as a single and finish in under 3 hours they made me wait till 7 and play with a 3 some. Not a big deal, but some courtesy would be nice. POP was 4.5.
Tee boxes: level for the most part. ok coverage. no real complaints
Fairways: Bit of a mixed bag, but overall good given the recent weather.
Rough: Not really existent, maybe an inch or 1.5 most.
Bunkers: Great. good depth, no standing water.
Greens: FAST. fastest I have ever seen here. Rolling at least an 11.
Overall some of the best conditions I've seen here. Certainly the best the greens have been, almost too hard. Would definitely recommend.» Close

I'm a big fan of Industry Hills. This was my first time playing the Babe. Clubhouse guys were nice, food was good in the clubhouse. POP was a shade under 5 hours. Front nine is a little boring with an absurd 300 par 3. Back nine is really nicely designed however, meandering through hills and trees.
Tees: Just ok but overall even and well covered. Lots of divots.
Fairways: In real good shape. Green lots of coverage well mown.
Rough: Not particularly penal but well covered. Didn't really affect club selection
Bunkers: Pretty thin but there was enough in there to get the ball up.
Greens: Pretty good. Bumpy and about medium speed. Lots of unrepaired divots. Lines were true though.
Overall I would return and recommend, but would definitely prefer the Ike. Interesting side note, saw Norm MacDonald at the snack bar making the turn on Ike. Bartender said lots of celebs play here.» Close

Just an A+ experience from top to bottom. Amazing club house, staff and facilities. The food in the restaurant is really good as well. I haven't played too many courses our here yet but I can't imagine its not at the top.
Tees: Level, cut low, no divots except on a few par threes.
Fairways: Immaculate, green, soft.
Greens: The best I can recall seeing recently. A real highlight.
Bunker: Was in one, it was fine. Above average overall.
Overall a great course. Definitely stands out in the desert with the lack of homes (zero) and small pine trees lining the fairways. Would highly recommend. Unless I am mistaken, non-Palm Springs area residents can't book tee times until after 1. Try to make friends with a local.» Close

Played 1/16. POP was an absurd 5.5 hours. At one point the group in front of us just sat chatting in the fairway for 5 mins, meanwhile the group ahead of them was 2+ holes clear. Showed up right at my tee time so no comment on practice facility. Proshop was nice, food was meh. As for the course:
Tee boxes: Pretty good, definitely better than Morongo right now. Mostly level with a decent amount of divots but you could still find a nice spot to tee.
Rough: Pretty much non-existent. Maybe 1.5in. If you've played this course you'll know that there isn't much rough for a reason, its maybe 10 yards deep then canyons/trees/ob.
Fairways: Quite a few had a lot of muddy/wet spots marked as GUR. Where it was dry it was fine, still not a lot of roll-out. All yellow right now and totally dormant but not hard pan.
Bunkers: No comment was lucky not to find any this day.
Greens: Speed was consistent throughout. A little long in the tooth but were medium to medium fast depending on where you were (on the green not green-to-green). I guess 9.5
Overall I hate this course, but not for the conditions or anything like that. The conditions are solid as is the customer service. My problem is the design. Too many gimmicky "tough" holes. I am fairly long but when I have to hit irons off of 80% of tees because of canyons that is ridiculous. The up and down, the constant pin locations at the bottom of a 5-6 foot elevation change in green slope is tired. There is a reason you never see them play courses this style on tour, they would throw a fit. Recommend = yes, but only if you are a forelinx member and can play for 20-30$ at 8am on the weekends. Bring a lot of balls.» Close

Played the Legends on 1/15. Got there early to utilize their awesome practice facility. Found the driving range to be beat up however and one of the putting greens was pretty slow and brown. The other putting green and chipping green were great as usual however. Pro shop guys are real nice, especially the pro who threw in a warm up bucket just to be nice. As for the course:
Tee boxes: Pretty bad tbh. Level for the most part but just as beat up as the driving range. Even on long par 4's and 5's it was hard to find a clean spot.
Rough: It was ok. Very easy to play from, not very long. Maybe 2in max. Pretty uneven in coverage.
Fairways: Pretty good. Very damp, drivers were plugging. They were fine to hit from but a mix of yellow/green/brown. Understandable given where it is and the time of year.
Bunkers: Filled with water. The sand that wasn't was damp but playable. In the summers and fall the bunkers are awesome here.
Greens: Decent enough. They posted 9.5 at the clubhouse, I would say that is accurate. Held shots well. Tons of divot marks, really too bad. It isn't that hard to fix one and if you can't bend over cause of a bad back then use your putter.
Overall I would say a 6.5 for the course. Too bad, cause when its in good shape this is one of my favorite tracks to play. Solid 7. Recommend = yes, but only cause its so cheap right now. Otherwise I would wait to play in the summer» Close
