Very Playable and Fun Course

This was the first time we have played this course as part of a couples trip we do each year around late January, early February. Each individual voted to add the Greg Norman course into the rotation for next year as well. The course was in pristine conditions. As per most of the name courses, there are numerous fairway and greenside bunkers, but that is offset with wide fairways and generous landing areas. Very playable for the mid to high handicaps. We paid $89 green fees through Golfnow. This course is worth every penny.

Horrible condition

This has to be the worst conditions I have seen in a course in a long time. Not a patch of grass in the fairway and greens are harder than concrete. Pace of play was extremely slow!! Unlike anything I have seen from a PGA West course before.

Could have been good

Unfortunately we played the course which desperately needed re-seeding. All fairways were brown, thin (no grass whatsoever) and the greens seemed like they were plastic. If the course conditions were anywhere near what the pictures show, it could have been good. Also got stuck behind a couple of two-somes (how did two-somes get out on Thanksgiving) and then the Marshall said we should pass them. Only to get stuck behind two very slow groups who took anywhere from 5-10 practice swings; lined up 1 foot tap ins etc. $62 was way too much for the conditions but like I said, perhaps next Jan when we are back I will see what the conditions and price (value is important) are like and decide if it is worth it.

Norman Review

This course was disappointing due to their botched overseeding plan. Poor playing conditions were not communicated and thus very disappointing. I would rather have played another one of the great courses of the valley than waste my time here. I am sure it is a great track when in good shape but it really was not fair or expected of a course of this calibre and reputation not to warn people of the sub par conditions. Greens played well but the rest of the course was a bit of a goat track. If looking at this course you should wait until it gets back in shape.

Lovely desert course

Unfortunately we could only play nine holes as the sun was setting and the ferocious winds were blowing too much sand. I would love to play it again under better conditions

Late Afternoon Golf

My wife and I enjoyed our late afternoon 18 hole golf game. The only thing that spoiled it a little bit was the group in front of us got slower and slower on the back nine. With the setting sun gone down it was lucky we finished when we did. as the light was fading fast. Staff were great and very helpful. The course was in good shape considering it was the end of the season and it was due to close in two weeks for aeration. We started our round at 1:40 and finished 4 hours and 15 minutes later. Unfortunately the Clubhouse closed at 5 PM so we could not use it or rate it.
The course was good value for what we paid and I recommend it to others.

Great course but restaurant closed early

Course in great shape and staff customer service was very good. Always enjoy playing this course.
Our only complaint was that the restaurant closed early before our round was even done at 4:30.
