Played with a buddy on Sunday morning (6/24), paired with another two-some from San Diego. Pace of play was just fine all day long - which is to be expected with a 6:45 tee time and a rather humid mo... Continue »

Played my favorite track in the desert for maybe the 5-6th time in the last 12 months Sunday, 4/15. We were the 5th group out and played in 3.5 hours (2some) and the course was in fantastic condition... Continue »

It's always fun to play where the pros just played. Having only played a few course where the PGA and LPGA play, I can see why they post so many low scores here at Nick T (as the locals call it). Con... Continue »

Played the Combo tees (6224/70.8/130) with Judy, Tim and Alex326 in 4.5H. Fun group to play with and a beautiful setting for Alex & I to play our GK Cup match. The weather was sunny, fairly calm and i... Continue »

Played the Blues (6522/72.2/134) with Bill, Dave & David in 4H, 40M, barely beating darkness. The weather was sunny, fairly calm and in the high 80's. Unique features of this layout include large mo... Continue »

Played 18 holes at the Nick Sunday & Monday (12/17 & 12/18). From a pure golf standpoint this is my favorite course in Palm Springs. Although, visually the homes can detract from the experience. The c... Continue »

Played the Blues (6522/72.2/134) with Tony & Steve in slightly over 4H. The weather was sunny, breezy and in the 60's. One of the toughest chipping courses I have ever played because of the firm rai... Continue »

This was my 5th and last day of the Palm Springs trip. I hadn't played the Nicklaus Tournament course befit so I thought I'd check it out. This is definitely a players course and not a resort style ... Continue »

Day 2, Round 1 of my end of summer PS golf binge was at PGA Nicklaus Tournament course. I'm going to copy my Stadium review and edit it, as these courses are in the same condition except that Nick Tou... Continue »
