It is a desert-style course with some elevated tees and open fairways that play tight with a few doglegs. Water bunkers come into play on a few holes as well as numerous well-positioned sand bunkers.

Excellent Shape

Course had just come out of over seed. It was beautiful, played well, and was challenging. Only negative, it was tough doing so much up and down walking. Will play again when it’s not cart path only.

Nice course

Course was in excellent condition. I think they need to implement 45 degree rule this time of year with the golf carts instead of cart path only. Slows the pace of play down cart path only. Other than that no complaints.
