Advertised as a shotgun start with a lunch or breakfast included. No shotgun start or meal. We were told that we had to be off the course in 2 1/2 hours which forced us to rush trough the 18 holes. Complained to the clubhouse after our round, and was told that it was a Golf Now error.

First time playing this course and knew in advance we had a shotgun tee time. We arrived late due to taking a wrong turn but the staff were very empathetic and helpful. Paired with a very friendly and courteous couple who were familiar with the course. Well groomed and maintained course which lived up to it's four star rating. Will definitely play there again and will recommend to others.

You can tell this course was designed by Red Lawrence after you have putted the greens, they have very interesting undulations and require hitting the ball to the correct part of the green in order to have a makeable putt. Great executive course design, I would definitely play it again.

I'm not an avid golfer, but for a fun day at the course for a good price, this hit the mark. The only issue I have with this course is the signage could be improved as there a few areas where it is not very clear (i.e. 3 way fork in the cart path) which direction to head to the next tee box. Again, noting that I am not an avid golfer so perhaps those of you in that category could sniff out the right direction better than me.

Afternoon shotgun start on a cool windy day. We were walking started on 18. Played with 2 riders in less than 3 hours course in decent shape greens were slow but they have always been slow when I have played there. Nice day until we finished 17 and decided to hit one last shot on 18 as we walked in. The marshal saw this and scolded the group like we were stealing golf. So decent golf course don't pay more than 25.00 as much better and more friendly options and don't let the marshal see you hit a mulligan or an extra shot on a hole!

Your typical AZ golf course community course. Winding through homes on both sides, no elevation, but narrow and challenging. Not a grip-it-and-rip-it course, your aim will need to be "on" for this one.

Enjoyed the course fairways and greens in excellent condition. The signage for the 10th T could be better, we got lost trying to find it. I think some of the par 3's i.e. 202 from whites could have been marked as par 4's. We had an excellent day and will return to this course. The play and eat was also a bonus.

This is a very nice course and we will be back again, however we were rained out. I guess I assumed that a course would offer a rain check and they did not. We will try the course again after over seeding.
