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.

Slooooowwwww

The pace of play was terrible. I never saw a ranger out all day either. The course was in decent shape but cost a little high for this time of year in AZ for this level of golf course.

Great people, great value!

Western Skies is my home course, and I love it. The people there treat me like royalty, and always get me out ASAP. The course is in great shape, and the fairways and greens are forgiving.

Descent Course

Being the first time back at Western Skies in over15 yrs, I wasn't expecting much. I was pleasantly surprised by the condition of the course, and was thrilled with the pace of play (especially for a Saturday). They are doing a great job with that golf course.
