Headed to Palm Springs for the GK Plays at PGA West. We played the Nicklaus course and had a great time. Facilities are top notch with great service. The whole experience is enjoyable from the valet to the first teebox. Started on hole 5 for the shotgun starts and pace of play was fantastic, finishing in just over 4 hrs.
Course is in great shape and stayed great with the light showers all day. Fairways ran well and had no damage and harly any divots. Greens seemed medium speed, with a few on the faster side. They proved tricky for me to get good reads but weren't too bad once I got used to them. Chip shots were accepted well and you could even get a little spin on a well placed wedge shot. Tee boxes were lush and void of an significant damage. Sand traps were fluffy and not too taxing. All in all a great day at a great facility. We are headed back this weekend to play Norman and Stadium courses!
The only complaint I have is driving range was backed up pretty bad. At all times there were about 5 to 6 players waiting for stalls, even though there was another third of width left on the range. Also the tiny practice green seemed in rough shape but I'm assuming this is because of the amount of traffic they get on a daily basis.» Close
