The course is in excellent condition and is very challenging. There is lots of sand and water including two island greens. Pace of play was a bit slow (4.25 hours). The green fees are pricy but worth it to play this beautiful course. The clubhouse, practice areas, and staff were all great.

I have played Nicklaus around the world and he creates similar courses but everyone has a distinguishing feature, feel and identity to it. This course does not bank on you being in great form nor does it require you to a low handicapper, as long as you hit the ball fairly straight and have sparks of good form you will knock it round in a comfortably. What I loved so much about this course was the contours throughout the course, it is visually stunning and not often everybody in your group says WOW! That is something special and worth a mention. Please play this course after the stadium to fully understand my review, I file this after being tormented by the most difficult course I ever played. Plus, I have forgot to mention how welcoming and friendly the staff are no matter whether they are a groundsmen, caddy or bar maid everyone is brilliant!

This course is well worth playing! Gorgeous views. Playable but challenging. All of the PGA West courses are outstanding and this one is no exception!

My first time and needed to play in the afternoon. The reservationist was very helpful in advising which of the La Quinta courses to play. The Nicklaus course is in the middle of difficulty.

The starters greeted me by name and did an absolutley fantastic job of providing advice on the course and the best way to have fun. One of the superintendents stopped by on the second hole to chat and was very csutomer oriented.

I found the course very cahllengin and spent plenty of time in the sand. Very well maintained and would play there again.
