This course lay out is confusing tees to greens. There are several tunnels to drive through. Even my GPS had us on the back nine when we had just started the front nine. There's way too much open dirt areas that I feel should've been reduced with adding irrigation and grass seed. The greens are small. The course was about two days from closure for over-seeding. That meant that tee boxes and fairways were shaved down in preparation for the rye-grass seed. I might check it out after the over-seeding and new grass growth.

Slowest greens that I have ever played in AZ Played Labor day and I don't think they were cut all weekend

Nice course that must have struggled with the Summer conditions. Greens very distressed and disappointing

used ALL of My Dashboard Rewards to try something different for the Holiday with my son. Should have stuck with the known commodities that I regularly play.

it has been awhile since I played this course and i don't remember it being in such bad shape. The greens were extremely slow you couldn't hit the ball hard enough with your putter, and very inconsistent. There was grass everywhere like they are purposely waiting to cut anything down. The fairways were also very thick and slow. Never called us up to the tee so were were sure when to tee off, the course was empty several singles and twosomes. From the distance it looks like this course is in trouble.

played this course 7/19 11am--I have played here many times over the last few years.

very sad to see it in such terrible condition. both the fairways and greens were in

disgusting shape. huge areas on the greens that should have been marked as ground under repair, looked like the staff had driven their carts on them. very sad

Some brown/rough grass in the fairways but not too bad considering the time of year. Greens in good shape. Cart lady basically non-existent. Load up your cart before you head out. Been that way the last 4 rounds there

Played the palms some brown areas on fairways to be expected in summer, greens nice and big targets but some rolls to them to keep them interesting. Nice sand in bunkers(unfortunately experienced first hand) good putting, chipping, sand trap practice areas. Enjoyed the course.

Normally a nice course, not on this day. Greens in poor condition, very slow. Only the tee boxes and fairways were adequate. The fees were reasonable based on the condition of the course.
