The course is in great shape, still cart path only but the greens were good. I honestly thought it was going to be wet and slow greens but it was ideal conditions. They have already started cutting the greens. Now I showed up early in the attempt to get warmed up at the range. But the range was closed due to maintenance work, no notification ahead of time. So then i thought i would chip and putt a little but the starter calls me up 35 minutes before my tee time. I attempted to rush to the first tee to join the twosome the starter put me with but they took off so then i'm stuck playing solo behind the slow twosome.

This is a follow up from a previous review. In that review I stated the staff was not friendly and appeared rude. Since that review I have played this course several times and have found the staff contrary to my previous statements. Additionally, the staff is friendly, informative and very professional and the course is not only one of my favorites but always in great

What a fun, playable course. You can max out distance by playing from the tips but I find that most casual golfers can easily play the middle and wrap up a round in under 4 hours. The golf boards make it fun and quick to get around the course. I highly recommend this course for everyone to have a good experience.

The course does not play as long from the tips as it states on the scorecard. It plays around 6400 from tips. Its a nice short course. Mostly just straight shots.

I truly love everything about this golf course! The staff is top notch and the price per round is pretty unbeatable. The only negative thing I have to say about my last round was the pace of play. The foursome in front of us was abnormally slow this time around. There was really no playing through due to a foursome in front of them as well. If there was a ranger around the course I’m sure that would have taken care of the issue. But as I said I truly love this course and will play here any chance I get. Thank you Western Skies for being amazing! Cheers!

I have golfed this course numerous times through the years and it is in the best shape i have ever seen. Tee boxes, fairways and greens all in very healthy shape. A few fringes of the greens needed tlc but i could tell they have put more effort into upkeep from previous years. This was a lower choice on my course list but now i will put it back in rotation. Very happy for that since its my home (closest) course.

The main issue with Western Skies are the bunkers. Greens are good. Some spongy wet spots around the course. Staff is great. Restaurant is good. Best value in the Southeast Valley.

I was paired up with some great guys and that made this round exceptionally fun. It's great to play with people who know their limitations and don't pretend to be something they're not. Golf is most fun when you can play with people who leave their ego behind and just relax and have fun. Oh yeah, the course was in good shape too. The staff were their usual selves trying to herd cats in the right direction.
