Very nice, well cared for and very challenging. Lots of bunkers, water and rolling greens. I was very surprised on how well maintained the course was and how many balls I lost.

I went back and played again the next day, it was that much fun.

This a is a great 18 hole executive course in the greater Phoenix area. A par 66 with more par 4s and 5's than most exec courses, along with good use of bunkers and sprinkled in water hazards, make it an enjoyable, fun, and still challenging course. Will play here again.

This course will hold your interest because it has more par 4's than the average executive, plus it has its fair amount of water and bunkers. One dog leg to the right defies keeping it on the fairway, unless you have a natural fade in your game. This course also has a par 5 with a blind water hazard on the left side of the green that cannot be seen from the fairway. Good luck, and have fun.

Enjoyable afternoon with another couple we met on the first tee. Mostly par 3's and 4's with one par 5. Water comes into play on several holes and well placed bunkers and undulating greens will get your attention. Fairways are mostly generous but some of the par 3's are tightly aligned with community residences. If you value your clubs, don't bother hitting any misplaced shots from the sandy/pebbly waste areas. The carvings of various animals, birds, etc. throughout the course are a neat attraction. Would definitely recommend it.

The course itself is quite nice and challenging enough for an executive course. However, it is inexcusable that no one was allowed to tee off for the shotgun start until after 2:00 pm. It was slated as a 1:00 pm shotgun but a Greenskeepers tournament was so slow that the rest of us had to wait for over an hour. Eight person teams playing a scramble is ridiculous at the best of times. The course should have been closed if they wanted this kind of play. Needless to say, it was extremely frustrating and disappointing.

Booked a single online with plans on showing a new golfer how to play so I had someone wanting to ride with me. Cashier let me know that I was paired up with someone and he only pulled out two carts and wouldn't pull out another cart. I offered to pay for another person, offered to take a later tee time but the cashier wouldn't do anything.

He stated to me "that's what the problem with booking with golf now". I'm sure the course doesn't mind losing one single golfer but I will never book a tee time there again and they should really take a look at how they treat people.

Tee boxes, fairways and greens all very nice. Nice for an executive course. Not very long but some challenging holes. Staff pleasant. Played a shotgun start. We were a twosome playing behind a pretty slow foursome so had to wait quite a bit after the first few holes. But it was a beautiful day so not terrible.

I don't write these often. The course was nice and in good shape. I found the staff unfriendly and not helpful. They seem to cater to members and people living in the community. It almost seemed like they didn't want outsiders there. I'm not sure why they put tee times on Golf now if they don't want them there. Maybe I just ran into the wrong people but I would not go back there again. Not because of the course but because they didn't make me feel welcome at all.
