Greens were aerated within the past week. Loved the course. Very beautiful and lush. However the greens were very very slow. I wish I could have played it when the greens ran more true. I think the price could have been a little better. I played Silver Rock and Eagle Falls and PGA West Nicklaus Tournament course and believe they were a better bang for the buck. I am not a great golfer but enjoy the game very much. I did love the course very much but compared to what I paid at those other courses, I think I would have rather golfed elsewhere. I paid $56 there and Silver Rock $30 PGA WEST NICKLAUS TOURNAMENT $29 AND AT EAGLE FALLS $39. When it is near or above 110 degrees, I believe the Marriott could lower their rates to a more comparable level.

Our favorite of the desert public courses...very challenging in every way: fast, undulating greens, abundant hazards, a varied, thoughtful layout, and on most holes very little sense of any other surroundings. A delight!

WOW! This course is in fabulous condition. It is so green & lush, you could play barefoot. I have never ended up in so many bunkers. Tune up your sand game if you have trouble keeping it in the fairway (or even if you don't!)The bunkers tend to be quite deep and frequent. Greens are med-fast & relativly true w/ little or no flat/ level greens. Fairways are wide, but be carefull or you can easily end up with a side hill lie. The staff are extreemly friendly & helpfull. Keep the pro-shop number on your cell phone & they will send the bev cart right to you. Beautiful scenery. Pace of play is SLOW, so don't expect to rush through unless you are playing later in the day.

One of the better courses that I've played in the Coachella Valley. This course is a Nick Faldo Design and is well laid out. Each hole is memorable and never gets old. The course is usually immaculately maintained.

The practice facility is second to none. Full range, full pitching area, multiple putting greens, multiple practice bunkers! You can spend all day here alone.

Uptight staff sometimes due to their range dress code policy. You must have a collared shirt even to use the range. I can understand on the course but the range?? Come on it's a resort not a major venue! To be fair this is a policy at many of the local courses something that is not common in San Diego.

Excellent greens, very few flat areas. Each hole is a visual dream!!
