Fun course. Hole four is challenging as it’s staight down then 90% left over water. Play it as a 3 shot to the green and an easy birdie. Winter grass just coming in. Greens are slow due to over seeding. Great way to spend the day, pricing is great. Would recommend this course for an enjoyable round

Many courses in the AZ area are in transition season (thatching and changing to winter grasses), and this course in that transition now. However, I find that the thatched grass plays surprisingly well and I actually get a longer run-out and better lie than when the regular grass is growing. The greens continue to be in better condition than expected and roll pretty quick (which I like) and true. Still, this course is one where you better keep it in the fairways (which are narrower than most I have played), and best way to play well is not to try to bomb every drive, but rather use good course management and play for accuracy, not distance. Fairways are lined with lots of trees and houses to get in your way, so beware. Some cart path areas are paved and pretty good, but much of the course pathways tend to be bumpy and rough. Basic summary is, that this is a really good course for the cheap greens fees, and just fine for honing your game for accuracy.

they are still removing a few toppled trees from past storms, but they do not interfere with your play unless you hit a real wayward shot. greens were good a few tee boxes were overly dry and needed some work. the fairways were fine and the grass in the rough has been allowed to grow so that you know you are in the rough. I had no trouble finding my ball the 2 or 3 times I hit the rough so it was the proper depth....

Course is being renovated, we were a 4some playing behind a 3some. 0ne of the 3some was getting some lessons from the other 2. We were held up 5 to 10 minutes on every hole on the front 9. We were never ask to play thru. It was an exhausting experience on the wait time.

Thank goodness they didn't play the back 9.

I've golfed here off and on for years. I love the challenges the course offers with just enough water, some 90 degree doglegs and other great features. I was disappointed that the bunkers had little to no sand in them and seemed more like hitting off of concrete the couple of times I had to play out of them. Areas of dry grass were scatted on most every hole. The neighborhood houses are in general disrepair. Bottom line is that with a golfnow.com hot deal, you can't go wrong on this one.

Still the same old coarse. Greens in good shape compared to other coarses of supposed better quality. Over the years the fairways are getting a little smaller due to less overall upkeep. Bottom line. Fun time and a great price.

Have to say that the greens were fairly good but everything else was really rough. Many fairways were domed and your drive would roll off into terrible rough. It was a very frustrating round. #18 was a beautiful hole...seems it's the only hole that's taken care of.
