I played last week, but I went out to the course yesterday (6.8.18) and the course looks great. I feel as though my last review and sngernz's review is accurate. I like sngernz review, because ATGC did have a couple of fairways that have the micro-punch and it shows. If it affects your ball it shouldn't be too sever. But the course LOOKS GREENER than I have seen it in years. The course looks better than I have seen in a long time.
I like what sngernz said about taking a friend or client to ATGC if you want to show off or make them feel special because I always feel that way when I play ATGC as I love that there are no homes on the course and it always feel like a great escape when I play Arroyo.
So, I will rate it slightly higher than I did last time (I don't know what the generator is going to give it, but I give it a 7.8, 7.9), it's GREAT.» Close

I give it a 3.5 to 4. I am happy to say that the greens are consistent and green. The greens are the star of this dog meat course. POP 2 hours at 11AM on a Wed. The starter let me go out whenever I wanted to go out because it is so slow he said. I went through two groups and stayed with another single for the last seven holes.
This course is probably to be played to kill time if you are in the area and one that you don't want to get mad at. There is a lot of dirt, some mud and gravel, but mostly dirt through out the fairways. Either dirt or a poor mix of grass.» Close

Wind WIND WWIINNDD!! What's the point of golfing here as the wind takes it to a place that does not make this course fun. The six or so holes that your back is to the wind does not make up for it. Warrior...Ugh!
If I travel out to the Palm Springs area, I want great golf, this is not that. This course is the equivalent to really good Orange County golf (excluding the wind). So, what's the point of traveling out there? I couldn't tell you.
So a course review is near irrelevant, but here's a quick one.
Tees: Ok, level enough. Lots of divots and browning in areas.
Fairways: Nothing special, browning in areas.
Fairways - first & second cut, the best areas of the course.
Greens: Odd, some bumps, kind of true lines. Browning, but usually true to the rest of the greens. They held high wedge shots, but beware of high wedge shots getting moved by the wind. The wind actually affected the end of your putt, pushing a foot to three or more.
Sand in Bunkers: Consistently mixed, some raked, some were not. Some people raked after themselves, some did not. The top inch was loose moist sand and then it was really nice under one inch; not moist, not wet and not dry, but they were consistent.
There are barely any trees throughout the middle of the course, some may have been on the outskirts and the "nature" areas.
POP = 4.5+
Best way to relate playing conditions: Hole 17 - Par 3 (114 from Whites). I thought I'd make up six yards with my 9iron - my 9i is 120yds. I teed it up, hit it perfect, the wind blew it back to 50 yards from the tee (into the lake - it was heading right back to me). So there's two strokes including the drop. I teed up again with a 6iron, with a little more than a half swing stinger to the gree. It's a guessing game. Lame!
I had four perfect "Land-speeder" drives off of the tee to barely make to the fairway and I got one to five feet of vertical on each of these four drives. Low trajectory "Land-speeder" drives were the best option into the wind.
I did not enjoy myself. I guess this is why the Westin, Hilton and Desert Willow with many of the other nice courses have walls, trees and buildings around much of the course(s).» Close

Course is great. Start time: 10:06AM. POP just over 4hrs. Greens were great, fairways were great, tee boxes were great and the sand was consistent in all of the traps. After we played, the food was tasty at O'Neill's.
I had a great time here, as the course was great and the weather was prime Scotish weather - cool at 69F and cloudy. The pace of play was the best I've ever had, at no point did we feel rushed/pushed and we were not waiting for the group in front of us at all.
I have written other reviews of ATGC on here before and my review would concur with. The only difference in the course is, as the seasons have an effect on the course, the new groundskeeper there is taking out a lot of bushes, some trees and surround greenery around the greens and tee boxes. I believe the new greenskeepers efforts are paying off in making the course look greener, and they (the efforts) are giving players a better view off of the tee boxes and a better look at the greens and the infinity views as well.
I had a GREAT day playing here, I absolutely love this course.» Close

Unfair - not cool, not cool! Why are the courses out in Palms Springs so amazing? $35(GroupGolfer) Harumph! :) Well, I give it a 9, the course is beautiful and so much fun to play. I like it better than the Pete Dye course at the Westin Hills and the biggest negative about the course was the sand in the bunkers.
Upon arrival. The Gary Player course is at a separate property/site than the Pete Dye course, about a 2 minute drive from the resort/Dye course, the clubhouse is a couple of portables put together. This is not like the Dye course which is part of the resort with all of the resort amenities. The clubhouse staff and the starter was very good and very helpful. Ask them a question and they were on it, once again, very helpful and knowledgeable.
Practice facilities. They had complimentary range balls for the driving range and the chipping areas. All of the practice areas were representative of the course itself. They let you take the golf cart down to the driving range and the starter was great - he let me start early as I was a single (before my 7:10AM start time).
I did not see the cart girl all that much maybe twice, but I don't usually use the cart, which I did when I played my next round which was at Dye - I got a nice turkey sandwich. They did not have water stationed at every tee box area and the bathroom facilities were scattered with two or three aside from the clubhouse. IT'S HOT (106F) BRING YOUR OWN WATER.
The course. All of the tee boxes were very good, just under great as there were some divots and very slight sloping at the edges of tee boxes and very few (maybe one or two-ish) tee boxes that had ruts running through them. But, really, they were as good as could be expected. The grass on the tee boxes were cut perfectly and they direction of the tee boxes and markers (painted rocks; black, gold, silver and turquoise) were pointed in the direction in which you should aim at, for the most part. They were well placed as far as keeping in tune with playability and in accordance with appropriately placement of tees for ones handicap. They were well kept and esthetically pleasing as well, they added or mixed in well with the course.
The fairways and fringe. The fairways is why I love playing these type of Palm Springs courses, it's as PGA as I know. It's as playable and makes the game so much more fun than playing some rock hard dirt muni course. I am not the best player, I have a 17hcp, but even I feel that if I make too many mistakes on the fairway it is ALL my fault. The fairways are so well maintained and manicured that it has to be my fault if I do not at least get a great possibility to play off of the deck. There should be no rocks, no dirt or baren patches on the fairway, they are immaculate. The fringe, the first cut and surrounding areas of the fairways were fair, they were cut high enough to stop the ball or put it back on the fairway if your ball has a gentle roll around the fringe. Past the first cut around the fairways it could get caught in some lengthy sticky grass. The sticky grass IS sticky, but it is fair as it is consistent through out the course. Beautiful.
The bunkers, water and waste areas. The water really added to the beauty of the course - MADE IT BEAUTIFUL. the waste areas were nice and added as well. I only ended up in one sand bunker, but I checked others and most of them were either really wet and clumpy or kind of hard to get out of and I believe that more than one had standing water in it. But the bunkers were for the most part playable, I am just pointing out the negative and the bunkers were my least favorite part of the course, as they were the least consistent with the other sand bunkers. Waste bunkers, if you can call them that were all plush with green grass.
The greens. I LOVE THESE GREENS.They rolled true and straight, just as the starter said they would. If there was slope that affected the path of the ball, it was pretty obvious, there is not much trickery going on here with these green. The ball did not leave much of a divot even with a high ball landing, they did not plug nor did they skip and run. They greens were not too fast but they were not slow, I'd say they were near perfect. I love these greens. The first and second cut were good, consistent and therefore fair. Like the fairways, they could give a gentle push back onto the green but after the second cut they also had sticky grass - consistent.
The course is incredibly beautiful and I prefer the Player over the Dye course by 2 full points (out of 10) because of the aesthetics of the Player course and the way that the Player course is set up and designed.» Close
