greens and fairways were in good shape, off the fairways it gets very sketchy, it's a pretty challenging course with narrow faiirway undulation, you can easily hit what you think is a good shot that takes a roll for the worse, nonetheless it is a great golfing value, it is a way to improve your golf game, course management can be critical at times, give it a try

This was an over all good course. There are a few holes that are hard to follow and a few of them are hard to find the markings on the course need some work. The best part of this course was that almost every hole you had to use your driver then follow that up with with a long iron or a fairway wood. Did I mention they have a ton of chances to find water or a sand trap and the rolling hills help make sure you are going to find one. It was fun I just played really bad so bad that I found water three times on the same hole.

The course was fine. What bothered me was golfnow blatantly lied about the actual cost of the retail charge offering an unrealistic discount. I was charged a service fee from golfnow, with the remaing charge to be paid in the pro shop. WhenI inquired what the green fees were it came to my attention that i actually paid more for my round through golfnow than if I had just booked it myself through the pro shop.

This course has a fantastic layout and is really challenging but when you have a course that is challenging.......you need to have as good if not better playing conditions. The course was a complete brick which is horrible considering all the lakes and ponds on the course.

Maintenance is needed desperately. I may give this course one more try because it is a very good layout.....but the conditions need to drastically improve.

Booked on line thru golf now. Only paid $22 which is reasonable however I have booked numerous other courses in the $20-30 range. However, by far the worst shape of any course in the valley. Greens and fairways were ok but literally not much rough but tons of dirt and grass clumps when off fairway. It's not just getting ready for summer, but this course needs lots of attention.

Course was in decent shape. Played early in the morning and got stuck behind a painfully slow group. Clubhouse was responsive and got someone out there to speed them up. After we played through them it was great.

The course layout is good. Condition of rough and bunkers needs work. Greens good shape fairways are ok but if you go off the fairway your most likely hitting off dirt hard pan. Bunkers need more sand.

This course has gone downhill in just the last couple months. Fairways weren't great, rough is non-existent in many places, bunkers are concrete, and so are the greens. Driving range is in terrible shape. About the only thing good still is the layout. Pace of play was awesome because nobody was playing. I'm not sure if they just let the course go because the snowbirds left and they don't care about the locals, but this place used to be really nice a couple years ago. If it wasn't one of the six Arcis courses I'd probably not play here for awhile. Hopefully they'll pick it up over the summer, but I don't hold high hopes. If you're paying more than $25 a round you're paying way too much.

Winter is over, course was over priced. It's a nice course but this ain't north Scottsdale, shouldn't cost like it is. I've always liked playing here and would play here more often of they just made the price more reasonable.

Tee time was 11:32 but didn't tee off till 12:55. The staff did offer free range balls but the wait was not worth it. I have played this course for over 10 years, but it will be a long time before I play here again.

I would never play here again. This is the second time my wife and I played here and couldn't get past hole 9. It took just under 3 hours to play the front and we weren't about to play a 6 hour round. The course conditions were not good either. They keep the holes that you can see from the road nice. That's all. The rest are not very good. This course has the potential to be phenomenal with a little care and a ranger keeping play moving. We were very disappointed.

Course was fine, although barren in spots and sand traps had little sand (but we're not supposed to be in the traps!). Greens were fast, but rolled nice. Hardest thing for my son and I was getting yardage for our approaches and not knowing where to play balls on the holes since it was our first time. We'll be back, had fun.

The basic course was in fair to good condition however off the fairways conditions were horrible. It appears management is given the course a good look for advertising and letting the overall appearance go to waste land.

Perhaps new ownership is need to bring the course back to what it once was.
