Wow, what a course. Played 5 other courses as well. For comparison's sake, my favorites: 1. Firecliff, 2. Silver Rock
3. PGA West Stadium (overpriced) 4. Indian Wells Celebrity (the back nine was great) 5. Eagle Falls and 6. The Other Desert Willow Course.

This course was a true lush desert course. Some elevation changes, great greens and fairways. The scenery was nice and you really felt secluded from the roads. If my group goes back to Palm Springs, we will definitely play this course again. Silver Rock was a close second.
