Great condition especially for summer

Had a great day playing Fire course…greens rolled true but a tad slower than they looked. Fairways and rough were butter. Great course I’ll be back again for sure.

Course is stressed.

This is a fun course to play. And of course you expect it to be hot in July in the desert. But a month plus of 115° days has taken a toll on some places on the course. However the course played well the greens are in good shape just a few areas in the fairways that are marginal.

Great course!

I really enjoyed playing this course. It was my first time, I had played the other course here a few years back. The course was well maintained and the greens rolled true. The yardage in the carts was as accurate as my laser device, nice touch.

Fun Course, Good Condition

We played on a Friday afternoon...great rate for a good course. It's been in better condition, but overall it was pretty nice for the middle of summer. There were a few other players out , but the pace was excellent as you would expect.
