Very nice Arnold Palmer desert golf layout. No tricked up holes, all trouble is out there visible. Beautiful day, beautiful course. Also got a good early afternoon rate.

Played the course two times. On the 1st day the heat was pretty bad (100+) with very little breeze. We teed off at 7:00 AM. The second day we had some breeze and the temp was 83 at tee off time.(7:20) Regardless, the course was in good condition fun to play.

This place is great and is always worth the price. Staff and grounds are phenomenal. Faldo or Palmer courses are a great challenge. Head Pro Instructor, Matt Keel, is an amazing teacher and has a great way of communicating.

Very nice course, friendly staff. You will want to play this open, but somewhat challenging course if you an average player...10+ handicap...

Can be fantastic value in summer if $40 or under...

Have played both Wildfire courses and will continue as long as price is right and conditions remain favorable.
