Very playable for high handicaps

Have not played this course in several years, mainly because of the expensive green fees. We did manage to book a rate that we were OK with. Probably the resident twilight rate, so decided to take some friends that had not previously played the course. We did have a later tee time and were not sure if we would be able to finish, but the pace of play was fine. Not a lot of character for the course, but still enjoyed the round. Would play it again for the right price, but not the rack rate. There are more courses in the area that are better courses for less money.

Great course.

Played for the first time here and the course was in awesome shape. Very wide fairways and lots of desert. Water on a few holes and some nice mountain views. Teed off just before 2 so we got a great rate and we got around in 4 hours on a Sunday. It was getting dark but I was surprised we got in 18 holes. Definitely going back.

Great condition

First time here and it was a really nice course. Started off not too we’ll because of those 2 older ladies at the front desk because they had a little attitude but thank God for John which made our day a lot better. Everything else was awesome after we met John.
Those 2 older ladies in the front complicated everything for us and almost ruined our first time being there till John made our day but after John took care of us our day went beautiful. Everything was AMAZING just the 2 ladies were the down fall part. FIX THE ATTITUDE AND RESPECT YOUR CUSTOMERS

BIG BIG THANKS TO JOHN AT THE STARTER STATION.

Really enjoy playing this course. This course is in good condition almost every time I have played. The greens are still recovering from being punched but they are rolling pretty good.

Very nice

Desert Springs is one of my favorite courses. We happened to play at a time just prior to the course aerating, so the conditions weren't the best and the bunkers were not maintained. Nonetheless, Desert Springs remains one of my favorite courses!

Beautiful course, fun to play

This is a favorite course to play. It is in excellent condition and has several beautiful holes with water. The water is only in play on a few. It can be difficult to get on if you are not a resident especially in the winter months. Friendly staff! Look forward to my next round!

Misleading

Did not identify the tee time as a shotgun start. Then put me as a single by myself as second group off a hole with surrounding 4 somes. Had 6 hour round of golf written all over it. At least they issued a refund.
