Just didn't think this course was on par with the Dye course at the resort. For the same course you're getting more value with Dye. A lot of greens on the Player Course allow you to run the ball up. Also, didn't think it was as in good shape as the Dye course, which is right on the property of... More

While I'm not a fan of winter dormant grass in the rough, the Gary Player Course at Mission Hills was great. Just admire the contrasts and get out there. The course was in very good shape and the greens were running fast and true. This course offers good value and can test your abilities as a golfer. Lots of teeing... More

At $89/round this was the least expensive course we played during our week in Palm Springs. We had played the Pete Dye course during our previous visit and this course was recommended to us as the prettier of the two at Mission Hills. It is that. It is a nice course to play with a reasonable selection of tee lengths... More

Thoroughly enjoyed this beautiful course. Lots of opportunities for trouble but a great layout. Rentals a bit pricey but includes access to driving range and six new Callaways.

A must in the area. If you have to choose between the Pete Dye and the Gary player. choose the Pete Dye, the Gary player course has to be reseed and the Pete Dye is definitely in a better shape

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.
