Rating 70.6

The golf course at the Western Skies Golf Club has a traditional layout with many different challenges and beautiful views. Surrounded by picturesque mountains and valleys, the course offers a taste of the countryside, which is further enhanced by the many aged Mesquite and Pinon trees sprinkled throughout. It features tree-lined fairways with generous landing areas and tricky water hazards. Two notable holes are the 4th and 7th holes, both par 3s. Although it is a modest 186 yards, the 4th hole requires a carry over water to a heavily bunkered green. Western Skies Golf Club's 18th hole is a drivable par four with water along the right side, making this an exciting finishing hole.

Best bang for the buck

Hate being in one but by far the best sand in the bunkers of any of the 6 courses I’ve played in last 9 days including three that were much more expensive. Course is doing great. I’ve played 3 rounds here this trip and will play here 3 or 4 more times over the next 10 days. Might not be a resort course but it’s a darn good course.

Keep it in the fairway

Course was in good condition--tees, fairways, greens. Not much rough and lots of dirt which gives the course character. Pace of play was good.

First time

There was no one there to help a new person to the course with carts or instructions about the course. No bag drop. We was grouped with two very nice young players which were great. The course was very nice as well as the driving range and putting greens. Pace of play was good. We had lunch after golf and it was good also.

Western Skies Review

I play one month of golf in this Phoenix area per year. (Approximately 12-14 rounds of golf on 9 or 10 different courses).This course would Not rank in the ‘best value’ category. I have played several nicer courses for the same price value of Western Skies. The course lacks the refinement,(better greens, nicer looking fairways, etc) from comparable priced courses. I did enjoy the layout, I would give it a 3 star out of 5 star review.
