Must play

This is one of my top three courses I’ve played. Conditions are flawless, greens as pure as can be. Over-seed was really well done. Love the layout, each hole is great. This is a shot makers course. You must hit shots, you can’t just hit it and see what happens. Or you will leave yourself some really nasty approaches and up/down situations. If you do hit GIR, there’s really no excuse to 3 put though, cause the greens are so good. I love the mental stimulation this course provides, keeps the player mentally engaged on every shot. The course is also superbly beautiful, lots of water features and lush, vibrant green, rolling fairways. Good variety of trees around add to the ambiance. If you’re not a decent striker, bring plenty of balls, you will lose some. Staff were very nice and accommodating. If you play here, get ready for a fantastic day out, but don’t expect to shoot your personal best.

Classic Course is Classic!

This course is has a challenging layout and is in very good condition. With a multitude of interesting layout, bunkering and water features in play, add the wind, which was significant and you get a more than fair test forth average player. Outstanding clubhouse and restaurant make for a unique experience.

A must play!!!

Must play course in the Valley

From tee to green this course is consistent in it's impeccable upkeep.
Each hole has it's own distinct layout. You will not get bored.
Greens are quick and true.
Why the PGA stopped including this course on the old Bob Hope tournament is a mystery to me.
