Lazy golfers.

The course was in great condition especially considering all the rain last couple of days.
Very frustrated that NOBODY seems to care about repairing their ball marks on Greens. Played with 2 members and neither of them ever pulled out a tool. I fixed 2+ of the worst ball marks on every green

Nice course.

Really nice course, a little pricey. The only complaint I have is that it was a bit confusing finding the pro shop in the back of the hotel after parking.

Great course

Excellent course for a great value. I can't recall a blade of grass out of place. Had a great round with a good group of guys. A must play course in the desert.

Great course

Great course to play. Fairways and greens in good shape. Staff were friendly.
Only negatives were that bunkers surrounding the greens had very little sand and given their depth, this made for frustrating attempts the land the green from a bunker. Ened up blading a few across the green after my sand wedge bounced off the bottom on a few holes.
An on course Marshall nakung the rounds would be very beneficial here. Group in front of us were so slow, there were no groups 3 holes in front of them. Not the first time there has been slow play issues here.

10 minute tee times were ignored, with the starter pushing people to tee off early. Our 10:10 time went off before 9:55. This leaves no room for slack, so the group behind us was frustrated ant hit into us a couple of times. Then a single jumped in and tried to get in front of us. Did I mention the three bicycle riders on the back nine paths and fairways? Said they were lost and looking for a way out. Too much resort noise for me; won’t be back.

Great Course

Great course. We booked a hot deal teeing off at 1:30 pm. We finished play just under 4 hours, just before it got too dark to play. Overall it was a very enjoyable day. Nice staff, great course.

Greens were a little bumpy and tee boxes a bit long but rest of course in good condition.

Person checking in at the clubhouse ahead of us was charged $100 less for his round and the person behind the counter gave them a sleeve of balls. A little bit of ‘what am I missing’ when I paid full price. Guess I’m a fool for booking on GolfNow.

Good layout. Would like to see a forward set of tees added for shorter hitters off the tee.
Greens are still a bit bumpy - maybe transitioning for the winter???
Better value to be had unless you get a discount off the posted rates in my opinion or you just don’t want to walk away from the hotel.

Like putting on your driveway

Marriott, do you read these reviews? This course isn’t cheap but the conditions are. The greens are splotchy, bumpy and virtually unplayable. Why would anyone pay your price to play here if they weren’t a captive audience in the hotel? When will you fix this course up?
