No Staff

We booked online and were actually quite excited to play after looking at pictures.
First off it was very difficult to get to as the entrance is not advertised, no staff were present so we didn’t actually know how to go about golfing. We had booked a cart but with no staff....no carts. No golf. We walked around looking at the the course and the greens were decent but every where else was very rough and a lot of weeds. We left quite disappointed as we could have golfed somewhere else that morning. Very disappointed.

Windy day, but okay anyway

We booked a tee time right before noon. That worked our well, because we were almost alone, out on the course. It seems that everyone else had taken a lunch break. We used a powered cart, which functioned perfectly. The wind was however, the limiting factor. It was bending the flag-staffs in the greens' holes and was pounding away at our shots at between 20 and 30 miles an hour. Seriously. But that was no fault of the course!! We reserved out course time, and paid online, so we were committed. No regrets. We had agreat round regardless. paid

Greens are good

Course fairways are desolate, sparse vegetation, but greens and staff were very good ! Easy to walk 18 & pull a cart.

Golf in Yuma

An average short par 3 course needs work but priced right and not time consuming. Good course for Short hitters

The Tee boxes are all uneven , with not much grass and the greens seem like you’re putting on a sandy surface
