Pace was extremely slow and the people behind us continually hit into us. Otherwise it is a great course and always has been. I've never played here near or during the "season". If that is what it's like from now until next June, I won't be back.

Played the Peaks course on August 25th. The course was in great shape. Great views. Staff was friendly and helpful. Driving range was great, not beat up.

The only negative comment I have is they don't have enough water stations on the course. This is the desert in August. Should have water every 3 holes. Only had water on the 7th and 14th plus the start and turn. They offer you multiple cups of water at the start but how many can you put on the cart. For this reason I would not play again in the summer.

I took two friends to play this course who had never played here before They both enjoyed the course the pace of play and the amenities All of us would definitely play the course again and probably try the peaks course once it opens for play this summer.

Very nice golf course. Will be back for sure. Greens and fairways, sandtraps in excellent condition. Love the mountain views and the homes around the course. Very challenging from the tips. The price is right for this course. Thanks for your hospitality.
