Weather was good, speed of play was good today. Last time I played here it took a little over 5 hours to play 18. Officials need to pay closer attention to 5 somes and 6 somes. We expect the golf course personnel to not allow such situations.

Great golf course in the estrella mountains. Good mixture of straightforward and challenging holes. Condition was fine, greens were fast and firm and in excellent conditions, but the fairways for the most part were fine, but a few needed some conditioning. Old school course with tree lined fairways and bunkers around blister greens, tilted strongly back to front. 1,9,10,18 have a little elevation change, but the rest of the course is flat.

The pace of play was very slow. No Marshall and arrogant group 3 ahead of us backed everyone up. Added an hour to our game on a fairly easy course. No refreshment cart. Green fees are cheap enough, so I guess you get what you pay for.

May play again if I have nothing to do for the whole day. It might take that long.

It is a good course and we enjoy playing there, but it started out slow right from the beginning. We didn't start until a half hour past our tee time. And it was slow all day. It took five hours to finish our round. There is no water on the course and no one selling any out there. We wanted to get a hot dog at the turn and the cafe was all ready closing and only had one bottle of water left. We would play there again but maybe go during the week instead of a Saturday afternoon.

The corse is very tight in the fairways . To much debris from the trees . The leafs are all over the coarse and shine with the sunlight makbig it hard to find your ball if you miss the fairways. Us like a lot of other people where confused where our next hole tee would be . The layout is very confusing . Only two restrooms one on each end of the courses was ridiculous . The golf shop bathroom smelled like raw sewage . Went to that restroom three times and each time it smelled so bad .

The staff was friendly but never saw any staff on the coarse checking up on us .

I will lot be going back to that coarse
