Located off the Highway 101 loop, it is conveniently located near Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport and many of the area's best golf courses. In addition to nightlife and live casino action at the resort, a Topgolf was recently added to the property as well. The main outdoor pool is large and has live music and DJs during a summer series and cabanas for rent, while there are two smaller pools.

The golf club is located next door and feature 36 holes designed by Bill Coore and Ben Crenshaw, the Piipash and O'odham. Both golf courses are void of residential development and feature forgiving fairways and greens on native terrain.

Afternoon Rate/Pace of play

We played at 2:18, got a decent rate. We were paired up with a father and son and as a foursome we waited on almost every hole. We played the back nine by ourselves and continued to wait on every shot. By 6:30 we were on the 17th hole and it got very cold once the sun went down. We did not finish our round. Left after completing the 17th hole. Had we finished, it would have been a 4.5 hour round.

Great course to play

The course was in excellent shape, great mountain views, very friendly staff and good pace of play. I like the convenience of the driving range and practice putting green where it is located between the 2 courses. Generally, wide fairways with the challenge being bunkers around the greens.

Talking stick,north course

Over 4 1/2 hour round and groups in front of us didn’t rake traps when they were done. For the first round of the year it was just fine.

Staff needs communication lessons

Staff at check in did not explain where to access range for warmup. We ended up at a “player development” area where we were told to leave. Found the correct area, but felt embarrassed for our mistake. No pitching or chipping area that we could see.

Overpaying for these courses

Spend your money elsewhere. This course is very over rated. There are much better courses in the area better than this for much less dollars. This is average in layout and scenic value and difficulty..
