Great round, with one small complaint.

This is my second time playing a JW Marriott course. I played the Valley Course around this same time in 2019. The course was in excellent shape. The greens were quick, but not crazy fast, while still being receptive to shots. Fairways were terrific. GPS was accurate. Practice tee and green were adequate, with range balls included in the price. My one complaint was the lack of water on the course. On a 100 degree day, the beverage cart didn't come around until 8 tee, and then not at all on the back. Also, the water fountains on the back were out of order. I was a bit surprised to not get a few complimentary waters in the cooler on the cart, like I did at a lower priced course the week before in Las Vegas. I would definitely play the course again, but I'd be sure to stock up on water beforehand. A minor quibble, however, for what was a really great round on a gorgeous course, especially the waterfall at 2 green and the entire 17th hole. Pace of play was moderate (4 hours for the round), with just a few waits on some shots. Hard to judge the other off course amenities, as I was only there for the golf, and it appeared that some restaurants were closed due to the pandemic.

Vacation golf

Still a pricy course but with others reseeding there weren’t many options. Very nice course to play, but no ice even to byodrinks, and no service to wipe down clubs or even water and towels to do ourselves. Marriott can do better!

Great Course

This course offers a wonderful challenge. Course was in great shape and the greens were playing fast! The starter was wonderful and really set a great tone for the course at the outset. Cannot wait to be back!

Hot day at the course

Overall, it was a great experience, challenging holes with sand traps and water and what makes the experience even better are the great folks we were paired with.

Nice!

The a holes that gave bad reviews are still living in the past. Go back to your private exclusionary clubs and make jokes about people you find to be lesser than! This course was in almost perfect condition for summer. Covid 19 rules apply bring your own water dilrod its been this way all through summer. As far as the geek that got got paired with the hacks, serves u right for being a stuftaluftagus.

Good resort layout

The course is well maintained and friendly staff. Many challenging lies considering the mounding in the fairways. Bermuda rough can also be very tricky. Keep it straight And enjoy!
