This course was well kept.

I wish they would of spaced out golfers a bit more. We trailed a four-some and then behind us was another four-some and we all kept bumping into each other. Other than that. It was awesome.

Just right for a beginner

I chose this course because my 16 yr old son wanted to golf with me, but he only picks up his clubs a couple of times a year. As it turns out, the other twosome that joined us had a newbie also. It seems to cater to this type of golfer, so the pace of play was slow enough for them to have fun!

As far as the course conditions are concerned, fairways were in better conditions than I expected, but the tee boxes were terrible.

Overall though, fun was had by all and I would absolutely take him there again :)

Great short course

We had a really good time playing this course. We went around twice. The course was in great shape with tricky greens that made it more challenging than expected. Absolutely would recommend this course.

9 hole quickie

Nice little 9 hole golf course. Looks maintained just fine. Not too many obstacle challenges. Maintenance guys have hoses drug across fairways watering, which definitely messes up the rolling golf ball. One guy was watering by hand and would not move. I'm not a great shot, he was playing with fire. $51 for a 7:30 tee time with a cart. A little expensive for 9 holes I think.

Palo Verde -- Muni Round

First things first, this is a city municipal course, so don't be expecting Troon-like quality or private course amenities/conditions. You get what you pay for.

Having said that, was a nice time at this 9 hole muni. Easily walkable, though carts are available but the push courts allow for an easier time to walk this short course. Of the 9 holes, 6 are Par 3s, so good time to test your short game.

The conditions were what you expect in the fairways and for early in the morning when I teed off (sprinklers still going, wet spots, mud in some spots, etc). Just know you are playing around $12 to $15 for a city course and don't expect anything else. However, I was really impressed by the condition the greens were in -- if there's a good thing to say about this course, it's that the greens are better than a lot of other/better courses I've played throughout the years.
