Mountain View Course at Desert Willow.

Most beautiful course in the Desert. You won't be disappointed, staff was great and the course is immaculate. A real test but fun at the same time. I played from the purple tees which made it a bit tougher for me, but still had a great time. I met some great guys from Canada who had played the course several times and they gave me some insights on various holes which was nice because it was my first time playing the course. Make sure you go to the restuarant after your round. Great food and drinks and the views on the patio are amazing. Have fun, you'll love it.

Poor experience

Very poor customer service experience. They have GC has a policy where they don’t allow ride alongs in the same cart. They force players to ride with each other.
My wife is a cancer survivor that enjoys to ride along and watch us play. GC policy is so strict they won’t even let me pay a ride along fee. They want me to pay another full players fee. How ridiculous is that? I have never experienced such an inconsiderate facility and I will not return to patronize until the policy is changed to a more customer friendly philosophy.

Nice course but very expensive

I guess you get what you pay for, however this course is very expensive. Not used to paying over $300 CAD to play golf. It's definitely nice to play once, but there are other great courses in the area that are way more reasonable.
