If you are looking for a fun day of golf, and do not mind a few shots going where you do not want them to go, this is one of the Coachella Valley courses for you. The green keepers do a fantastic job of keeping the track very playable and the flora is exquisite. Throw in the ambiance of the... More

Enjoy the Gary Player Signature Course better than the Pete Dye (very intimidating to scruff golfer like myself). Player course is well maintained and though not connected to Westin Resort directly, has plenty of staff (pro shop, cart girl, etc) and play relatively quickly. Good range with chipping green, sand trap, and relatively free from course. Mike (starter and cart... More

Played the Mission Hills golf course, mid-March 2013, had a wonderful time! Visited clubhouse, for after golf beverages, it was well staffed with courteous servers and a terrific view of the course. Lovely day, great company, beautifully maintained grounds and unique vistas!

course is so well maintained, grass all green, no burn out, and great mountain views.....tolerable even with the 100 plus heat as you do get a breeze in that area for some reason.

...from the Westin Mission Hills, this course is a bit flatter. But it's a terrific test of golf...especially in the afternoon, when the wind picks up.

The Gary Player Course was in great shape. It was a challenge but very forgiving at the same time. My husband and I had so much fun playing the course that we played it again a day later. The golf staff was so helpful. You could not beat the price either. I played my best golf ever here. I am... More

Truly a gorgeous course. Wonderful, wide-open resort course so those coming from colder climates and who might be rusty have a shot at enjoying the round! Very helpful staff. As an owner of one of the timeshares at the resort, the price could not be beat. Look forward to coming back often.

This is a great course for the mid to high handicapper. This course has a good variety of holes, they are all different and well designed. The staff in the clubhouse, bar and the starter were all great and I will most likely come back here again.
