JW Marriott Desert Springs Golf Club Resort
Way too overbooked
The course was way overbooked. Very slow play. Beautiful course, way to slow

My golf Round
The course at JW Marriott Desert Springs -Valley Course is designed for the 18 handicapper or lower to enjoy the total golf experience. The course is well-maintained and the fairway slopes and undulations make it challenging to hit from an uneven lie, so you must plan each shot accordingly. The greens are fast and challenging as well; I found some of the greens to be a bit deceptive when I planned my putt - the ball rolled the opposite direction of where I thought the ball would roll (having sized-up the line before I putted). Nonetheless, the player should take all surrounding hills and undulations into account before executing the putt. That could mean walking the line (beware of where the other golf balls are on the green!) to and from the cup to get a better estimation of the line to putt. Good luck & enjoy the ambiance of the golf course facility!!

Nice resort course
I played this course during a national sales meeting 22 years ago. The course was in great shape and the greens were quite fast. The staff was friendly but
did not provide accurate information on tee time and
getting us from the driving range. We were gently warned on the 12th green to catch up to the foursome
in front of us--which we did in less than a hole, which meant that we should not have been warned. P.S.-
the group behind us was a twosome--one a weekend.

Pace of Play
Found that the pace of play was very slow. Not sure if this was the skill level or that the course tends to have a short time span between tee times.

Every staff member we came in contact with was a pleasure to be around. The course was in excellent shape. Will play here again!

Fairways were in very good condition . Greens were excellent with multiple levels and quite fast for a resort course. The rough had some bare areas and could have been in a little better condition. Pace of play was quite slow but that may have been due to the companion course being closed for over seeding. Overall, a very good experience . Casper

slow play but great staff
It took 2.75 hours to play the FRONT NINE...painfully slow. We quit after 9 but the staff gave us full credit to play another day. They were great about the refund and very apologetic about the slow round. Some goofball stopped at the turn for lunch and the guys behind did not play thru...kind of odd. Beautiful course and grounds...we will play another time.
