Good, but

No one at the bag drip when I arrived.. No one at the pro shop until 15 minutes before tee time.
No sand on the cart.
No sand at the turn. Sorry. I could not fix any divots.
No water on the course except the 3 dollar bottles from the cart.

Nice Resort Course in the Desert

Played here for the first time today. Interesting layout. Very hilly with very few flat lies.

Tees, Fairways and Greens in excellent condition. Wide fairways will keep most balls in play. Greens were quite undulating. And the bunkering was a bit extreme. Bunkers well paced in the fairways and around greens but very severe, maybe to much.

Enjoyed the round and may return.

Another great round

Course was in very good shape for this time of year. While it is starting to brown out as it looks.like.they are getting ready to overseed soon, it did not affect the course at all. Greens were in good shape and pretty fast. Played with two others and finished in 3 1/2 hours. Starter was very friendly and helpful. Will definitely be back next time I'm in town!

3 Deep on every box

Quit after 5 holes after being 2 and 3 groups deep on every box. Terrible pace of play and I won’t be giving this course a third try.
