Course was in bad shape, especially for charging $40 for the round. There are plenty of other courses that are less expensive right now that are in far better shape than this one was.

I understand that it is the middle of summer and that there aren't that many people that play at this time of yer. I also understand that for the price we pay for this time of year doesn't warrant the best the course has to offer during peak season. What I don't understand is that most sand traps had an inch of standing water or completely filled with mud. Again, I understand that I should not be expecting the best the course has to offer, but there are other courses that provide a better experience for a similar price.

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.
