Nice Day and Perfect Conditions

We've played this course several times when we are in the area and always have had a great time. The course was in great shape as always. The pace of play was good with no waiting as start times were well managed.

Classic desert Ted Robinson design

Choose your clubs wisely, don’t use driver on every hole. And every green plays uphill. Watch out for goose poop

Will play agai

Always enjoyable. Stay out of the green-side bunkers.

On the front nine, the pace of play was wonderful. On the back nine, the starter put two people in front of us who were just playing nine holes, and we had to wait a great deal because they were slow. However, the overall pace of play was under four hours.

The course was in very good shape and the staff was excellent. We played the round in 3.15 hours which was really enjoyable.

Disappointed in the Greens

Course was in good shape other than the greens. Very shaggy and slow. Not worth the value of what I paid. Let's trim up those greens and get the pace more in line with other golf courses.

Nice layout

Very nice layout. Overseeding two weeks earlier and so course was in great shape but as expected greens slow. Didn’t quite finish 18 but had an 1240 tee time. Pace of play was 4 hours 20 min. Would like play it again.

Overrated, Outdated Old School Course

From the surly staff, to the driving range being closed with no notice ahead of time, this course was disappointing. A small footprint of land, loud streets close by to too many holes, no amenities, this course is overpriced and not worth the price. I’ll never be back.

too many tee times

too many tee times created 10 min wait times at tee boxes. i understand the need to generate revenue, but this day was unacceptable to a player who plays at least 50 rounds a year around the country,

wanted my money back for poor management.
