This course does a "back 9 and breakfast". they stack them to close to the front nine 18 hole foursomes. 1 hour 45 minutes front nine. 2 and 1/2 hours back 9. I have complained about this several times. They dont care that we are not happy. Yesterday was the last time i play that course.

I played this course 2 years ago and was looking forward to playing it again. The conditions were much worse this time around. Also, service at the snack bar was very slow and they had run out of things by noon.

The course is ok, greens in pretty good shape and pace of play was pretty good.

When we arrived the two guys in the pro shop were much more interested in their march madness bracket than telling us about where to pick up our cart, where the first tee was or which other twosome we would play with. Took our money and went back to their bracket. Zero interest in customer service.

The thing I really didn't like was the nickel and diming. Charging extra for a bucket of practice balls once you have paid for a round is lousy and on the course charging $6 for an ice tea is ridiculous. Plenty of better courses in the valley, I won't go back.

Not worth $50. Played here many times at much lower prices. In my opinion, the conditions have gotten worse and the price has gone up. Pace was at 5 hours. Course was pretty rough in spots.

I can't wait for it to warm up and these snowbirds leave so courses like this have to drop their prices to what it's worth.

Pace of play for 12 holes....5 hours. This place sells too many tee times and bunches people together. First time playing and never again. Shame because I live across the street and wanted to keep coming for food and range and golf once a week.

No ranger out to keep pace of play reasonable. Spots throughout course are in bad shape.

Way to go Kokopelli.

All I wanted to do was play 18 holes. So you get keep me my entire fee and I get to play a little more than half the holes. How is that fair? I should receive a partial refund. Crooks!

This course has a lot of rolling contours which would be okay except there are a lot of places where you are blind to bunkers or fingers that reach out from a water hazard. A couple of times I hit a great drive down the middle only to learn when I arrived where my ball should be, that the water hazard that should be 25 yards to my left, had a hidden arm that stretched more than half way across the fairway. The greens hadn't been mowed on the day we played and we're pretty slow.

We had always enjoyed playing this course and appreciated the layout and level of challenge. However, this year we found the course to be very tired looking. The sand was clay, the tee boxes were very shabby, ball marks weren't being repaired on the greens, and the fairway was longer than normal. The carts were very dirty, although three out of four carts did have ice. The staff were all very friendly and courteous.

We were embarrassed to have suggested this course to our group of golfers.
