The experience we had playing here late November makes one realize why so many golfers are quitting the game. While the course itself has the potential to be very playable and quite attractive nothing else measures up. We were restricted to cart paths only as fairways, greens were in poor shape - urea (was it??) spread around all greens!!! Marshals... More

Everybody talks about the Pete Dye or the Dinah Shore golf courses but the best of them all is the Gary Player 18. They didn't spend much money on a fancy clubhouse or fountains and landscaping. The Player 18 was in the best condition of the three courses we've played so far. The pro shop guy was TJ from Media,... More

Golfing on the Gary player course was breathtaking. The vistas of desert landscaping along the course are beautiful and the course is challenging. Staff was very welcoming and helpful! The cafe inside the clubhouse has a great southwest salad among many other choice options.

Visited this as part of golf package for a weeks trip to Palm Springs, California. A group of twelve of us visited: thoroughly enjoyed the course which winds its way at times past homes. Unfortunately the clubhouse, shop and bar do not do it any favours. Bar/dining area was more like a canteen, with beers and drinks coming out of... More

Layout is conducive to some long shots being needed to hold score down. Some target golf and some grip'n rip holes. A nice mix.

Stayed at the Westin MH Resort for a 2 days/Midweek and other than the scorching heat outside our experience was great! I booked a deal on Hotwire and got this hotel. I wasn't thrilled about it at first because I really wanted to stay at the OMNI but at the end it worked out great. The resort is huge and... More

We are so lucky to live in Rancho Mirage. To play the course as a resident You must show ID at the Weston Mission Hills Resort main club house (Pete Dye course at the Resort) Then you pay an annual membership of $85. This then allows you to pay only $65.00 for each round. When you sign up you get... More

Great round of golf here for all levels of players. Gary Player designed and the management maintains a beautifully conditioned course. Challenging layout for all handicaps. Bravo.

Good course, little brother to the Dye course. Layout was good, just not in the same pristine condition. We had a blast and had course to ourselves for an afternoon round.

This course is excellent and very favorable for women using the forward tee. There are mountain views from every hole. The water features on the course are not much in play.
