The course was very nice! The surroundings were quite astonishing. The staff was mostly friendly, and food was good in the restaurant. The only issue was the greens weren't nearly as green as the rest of the course. All together it was nice, and being a holiday the course was nearly empty which was very nice!

Decided to play another course in AZ - Biltmore was our choice but was sadly average. Very tough to find the course, even with GPS directions. Signage within resort is minimal. Finally arrived at bag drop where we received a somewhat friendly greeting from staff (have had much better at other courses). The Adobe course is much like playing on a flat open field - some undulations but minimal at best. We sometimes found it hard to figure out what was the next tee box. The best part about the round was looking at the amazing homes backing onto the course.

My 6 year old son and I played this course mid-week while on vacation. We had an excellent time. I play middle tees and my son tees up from about 150 yards on Par 4's. We each posted better than our average scores. The tee boxes, fairways, and greens, were in very good condition. Not many people were playing the Adobe course, everyone wanted to play the Links course. Our gain. The fairways are wide and most misses are still playable. No lost balls or penalties for us. The challenges come from the bunkers near the greens and a lake on a par 5. We teed off at 11:30am, and no one was in front or behind us. We played in about 4 hours; we played leisurely. Staff was friendly overall. There is a restaurant with good food and a nice outdoor seating area with a view of the course. Views from the course are very good too. Only disappointment was the bunkers. Sand was very compact and difficult to play out of, which did not fit with the rest of the play or condition of the course.

Years ago this was the place to be, anybody from Hollywood to Politicians to Music stars. Now it's just a so so course for the masses. Conditions were average for a "public access " course yet fees seemed to say this is something special.. it is not. Don't waste your time or money, spend just a little more and get a much nicer experience or spend less for the same.

We cruised around this open layout, without rushing, for a total time of 3:10.

Course was in good shape and forgiving. Greens are firm and slow.

Staff is very friendly and helpful.

Find a deal to play this course as they ask $130, for non-residents, on the course website. It is good value, in the spring, anywhere around $60-$70.

Thank goodness i got a great rate thru golf now! Course is just ho-hum, nothing special. Layout is flat, back & forth, no imagination used & needs a makeover. Greens were very slow. Club rental rate at $70 is highway robbery!! Plenty of other courses in the area are a better value

This course has several holes running side by side which means golfers r continually hitting from the wrong fairway. It was in nice condition. The greens r small and in good condition. Green fee pricing at over $100.00 is a real stretch. There is value at around $60.00.

T-time was 1:37.

Temp was 94F.

Rain earlier in the month made conditions excellent.

Played with friends down from Alberta, they commented that it was a great first round for their week in the valley.

Fairways were cut appropriately and 1st cut of rough was longer but not overwhelming.

Greens were in good shape, despite previous players not fixing ball marks. Didn't notice any dead spots on the course.

Beer cart made the rounds yet we stuck with water or Tonic the course provided.

The group had lunch in the restaurant and felt it was more than adequate.

Golf carts were well powered and didn't run into problems with the GPS ie dead zones.

I've played the Links course previously and enjoyed it as well.

Traditional layout w/average difficulty. You can stray off the fairway and into another and usually have a shot at getting to your green in reg. Just keep your eyes open for old ladies pocketing your ball. (Happened with us.)

Convenient location. They have another 18 called Links. More difficult.
