Good Course - Challenging Layout

Conditions were good. Lots of interesting holes. There was a line to warm up at the range; a little disappointing. Some improved cart path directions would be helpful; would be easy to get lost if I hadn't of played with a veteran.

Great stop for golf

Hi handicappers need not be afraid if playing vacation golf. Holes are forgiving off the tees but bunkers are relentless and deep. Super fast but impeccable greens. Staff was very good.

Great value and challenge

This course is in overall good condition and it is much more affordable than similar courses in the PHX area. I almost got 36 in for around $100. Greens are firm and quick. The desert landscape forces you to hit it straight, as its not very playable. If the driver isn't working, you'll blow up.

tough course, fabulous greens to putt

played in late April, ground is firm which is OK on fairways, but had a tough time getting ball to check up on greens...which is touchy since many of the greens are guarded by sand traps that you have to carry. Would play a little easier under softer conditions.
But it was a great challenge, loved the course...would definitely play it again.

Not worth it yet

In that weird time of year where courses have stopped caring about course conditions for us locals but still have the snowbird prices.

Tee boxes fine, fairways are starting to burn out and some pretty tight lies, greens were actually pretty good but really fast (difficult).

Biggest complaint were the bunkers, specifically the sand. Typically you find no sand in bunkers in the Phoenix area, but these were filled with A LOT of beach sand. I don’t know what kind of sand is appropriate for bunkers but this wasn’t it. Maybe this was cheaper or something, but I’ve never seen that kind of sand used before. Had a ball that wasn’t just plugged, but completely buried.

I’ll wait until the temps come up and the prices come down before playing again.

firm greens - fun layout

greens were running at 12 which was nice. What wasn't as nice was trying to hold the greens on approach shots. Even spinning 58 degree wedges from 100 yds were bouncing long on some greens. With gusting winds it proved a fun challenge.

Enjoyable!

The course is beautiful. I enjoyed every hole. There were a couple holes that seemed like the same layout, but overall challenging. FAST greens. Hard to hold a ball on the green with approach shot. Best to shoot short of the pin.

Nice

13 handicap, course was in good shape, greens based on playing partners were slower than normal, but still challenging. Helped to play with others that could provide some tips. Played early. Saw cart girl once on front and twice on back. Ranger made regular rounds checking up on pace of play. 4 hr round at a 7:20 tee time. No houses was a plus decent views. Small aircraft from nearby airport was fairly constant but not a big distraction. Overall a good experience, would play again if back in the area.

Good layout, needs some TLC

Enjoyed the course even though it was a crappy weather day. The layout is good and well bunkerd. Found it tough to to know where to aim for teeing off with lots of bunkers and waste land bunkers in play on every tee shot. Greens were good but sparse and dry. Just need rain. Greenside bunkers had good sand but wasteland bunkers were hard and not club freindly. If you value youre clubs take a drop, lots of rocks. The tee off boxes were not great, not always flat and boxes needed to be moved to different local , lots of divots. And one thing I will always remember this course for is the 100's of broken tees on every tee box. Dont need to look hard to find a 1/2 tee on a par 3. They need to pick these up once in a while as it looks bad. All in all not a bad course just needs better maintenance.
