Nice Views and Layout

The course doesn’t have a driving range or a very big putting green. The greens are in very poor shape but will give them a break due to it being winter. The Starter grunted and was non engaging with the groups getting ready to play. The back nine was gorgeous - cool views!

Nice course!

Make sure to bring extra balls, the fairways get a bit narrow near and through the back nine, and prepare yourself for multiple blind shots onto fairways and greens. The staff were very friendly, course is in great shape(probably because it’s still cart path only, which we weren’t told until we booked, but whatever) and the pace was crazy fast, less than four hours for our twosome. Must have caught it at the right time. Of staying in AZ for a few days and want a challenging yet playable course with great southwestern desert scenery, give this place a go.

Difficult

Too many blind shots. It was cart path which made it more difficult. I wouldn't recommend it to my friends.
However, keep in mind I am a 15 handicap and over 75 years old .
So, I would say, check out the course before you play.

Great people!

Hands down best group of people at a resort, I felt like I was the most important guest there. They had over seeded and the greens were a little hairy. But great course, great people, great outing!

Great Course…..Rude Ranger

We teed off around 2:30 and the course was busy. Nobody teeing off that late is expecting to play 18 holes. We had a ranger rushing us regularly and even asking us to pick up and move to the next hole……where we had to wait for the group in front of us to tee off. Everyone and everything else was exceptional at the course. Too bad one old man on a power trip had to ruin the experience. For what it costs to play there the ranger should have had more situational awareness.

Worst track ever in AZ

Greens were like putting off shag carpet even after calling to confirm the week before trip for Thanksgiving. Pace of play awful, course conditions very poor; and way overpriced for what you get. No driving range, extremely small putting green actually in worse shape than course greens if that’s possible. I would never recommend this course to anyone even discounted 50%.

Very friendly staff

As for being a resort course. It is average at best. Views are amazing. Understand the cart path only, since it has been just a few weeks since over seeding. I can not say enough good for the staff. Very very outstanding and friendly. The starter was very knowledgeable on the course. Ranger was on it for the pace of play and ever time he seen us, it was always " anything we can do for you". There was a slow group in front of us and he was right on it and moved them to the next tee. The boys at the cart barn were right there as we finished. The staff made up for the course just being average.

Rude rangers and fuzzy boxes…

Started was yelling at us to hurry up, saying we were already out there for 3 hours and 40 minutes…on hole 14…during cart path only…so thinking we must have been slowing down the pace, I went up and teed up on the next hole and took an aggressive line on a blind par 4 and ended up hitting in to the group. So the rangers have a stick stick up there, the tee boxes (if they’re all open) are fuzzy, and you get yelled at for your normal pace on cart path only, for which you still pay full price.

Over priced for overseed play. I understand it’s a resort but $11.50 for a tap beer in bar after the round is ridiculous.

Not good experience.

Nice course design. But I can’t be sure of that because tee boxes and fairways had tons of sparse, hard pan spots all over. Greens were inconsistent and in poor condition.

Bad value not offering a twilight fee after 2pm during the winter.

There were three team members who provided top shelf service - Peter B, Drew in the pro shop and Roberto who was a new bag attendant. All three were polite and went above and beyond to provide a great experience.

Then there were 2 rude employees who ruined it. The starter is cranky and couldn’t carry a nice conversation. From his first words of telling me not to go before my tee time, I had a bad tast in my month and wanted to cancel the round. But the worst was the jerk who was collecting the flags and closing the course at the end of the day. Rushed us off and actually yelled at us to stop playing and get off the course. I’ve never had a staff member be this disrespectful. There was 20 min of daylight and this guy forces us off so he can get home by 5:30. I will never play this course ever again because of these 2 guys and the poor course conditions.

Tough little course, was in good shape. The only issue we had was the par 5s and not being able to see the green. Total guess as to where the green was. Kinda frustrating.

Disorganized, Delayed and Poor Greens

Had 3 buddies in town to play golf over 3 days and included the Grand as one of the courses to play. Given I had played it before my expectations were not unreasonable but I was pretty disappointed with the whole experience. Carts were not ready upon check in, tee time was delayed about 15 minutes, pace was terrible, green conditions were poor, drinks were given to us in plastic bag with ice, no coolers on cart, etc. - I was embarrassed to have people travel here to play the course. I will not be back, I won’t recommend the course and would caution spending the $115 for the round, much better value is easy to find across the valley.

Golf course

Course is fine and has challenges to it. Entirely overpriced for what it is however. Neither the greens nor course is in immaculate condition and it isn’t a pro course to push that kind of price. Additionally, no driving range still, just a net. $75-$80 is a much better price point for winter golf here
