Normally great conditions but in preparation for the heat greens have been recently Aerified . That was not a big deal but the fairways were so wet you felt like you were doing damage driving a cart on them . Tough unless you can pick your irons splat if you don't . One temporary green that was just being Aerified pro shop said nothing about this but the price was discounted . Always a fun course I smile sure in a week or 2 conditions will be fantastic . Fairways are very wide on most but not all holes . Lots of bunkers protecting the large greens . Pretty views as much of the course hugs the mountains . Typically you will see some desert Bighorn Sheep grazing on the back nine as I did Sunday . Staff is always nice food is very good and fast .

I get that it's summer and that we are in a drought and that they need to aerify to maintain the turf, but wow, what a disappointment after really enjoying this course on our trip at the same time last year. They seem to have poorly managed the watering - the course was soggy in most areas and completely parched in the rest. The greens were awful - Dustin Johnson would have five-putted some of the greens. Overall, not worth the time to play it. Won't be back.

Course was rough due to aerification and wet conditions. Price was adjusted to match conditions. The biggest complaint is the amount of sand in the traps. After each sand shot, I needed to take off my shoes and empty the sand out of them. I look forward to playing the course when it is in good condition.

Excellent course layout and course conditions. Played the weekend before scheduled aeration, and greens were just fine being medium fast and smooth. Best views of the mountains and wildlife in the desert. A little pricy, but plenty deals available to make it a must play.

A classic course
Palm Springs has so many excellent courses, but for me, this is the best of the best. The layout is challenging and clever, and never predictable. It is one of the most visually stunning courses I've ever played, with the Santa Rosa mountains coming right up to the fairways' edge. The mountain sheep are a treat, as they graze at the edge of the course. This is a must-play course, one of Arnold Palmer's best. And the practice facilities are first rate. Get out a couple of hours early and work on your game. SilverRock gets a 12 out of 10.

Last year I had booked to play Silverrock but the big rain storm washed the place out. I was disappointed as I had targeted this as a "must play" for myself.
So I have been watching for a an opportunity to get on at a reasonable price since the course came back. On this day my golf buddy an I played Terra Lago and were happy as clams with that facility, we got done at 1pm and thought, heck we're out here lets play another round somewhere. Silverrock came up at an acceptable price so we booked it and scooted over to play another 18 holes.
So to put it simply, this is finest facility and course I've ever played. The staff was fantastic the views were staggeringly beautiful, and the course was a feast of challenging and scenic shots. The Desert Bighorn were on the course which for me makes this my number one choice for golf in the La Quinta area. The sand was marvelous, the fairways sublime, the greens spectacular.
We had the place to ourselves which was a huge plus as well, being new to the track. I couldn't recommend a course more highly than Silverrock. We plan to go often now. Get out there, you will not be disappointed.

A must play in the Palm Springs area
This former PGA Tour host course is fun to play. There are no homes on the course (a rarity in the area) and the scenic mountain views never get old. The course has numerous bunkers that can quickly wreck your score. This is definitely a "must play" course which is among the best public courses in the area.
