It was extremely hot but the wind came up and it helped. The course conditions were very nice and pace of play was perfect. But its 20 miles away so not sure we will return.

compared to some other courses I have played in Henderson, area, this course is comfortable to play. Staff was friendly, and etiquette of other golfers was great compared to some of the other courses I've played, where they will just cut in front of your group without any acknowledgement. And friendliness.

This executive (par 60) course requires good shots. Common mistakes end up in well placed hazards. Greens are fast and true. Fairway grass is in great shape. Many tee shots are 130 to 160 yds., but some are as short as 100. One forced carry over water finishes the round.

This was our first time to play this course. The staff was very friendly and the course was fun to play. The driving range and putting green where in great shape to loosen up and get a handle on what the course would be like. There were many challenging Par 3 Holes and the 9th and 18th Par 4 Holes really up the challenge with the doglegs and water in play. Greens were as much of a challenge with angulations and speed. Only issue was with "Pace of Play". Back to back 4 some's and we just couldn't get away from people that did not know how to hit or putt! Then there were the locals that were jumping around the course playing open holes. Trouble is they jumped in front of us multiple times and that really slowed our play. Took over 4 hours to play basically a Par 3 Course. We will probably not go back to this course unless we get a really low price.

I love playing Desert Willow. The par 3 and 4s have great terrain and the layout presents good challenges for any level of golfing experience

It is and will remain my "go to" course for practice

This was my first round at Desert Willow and it will not be my last. Nice people that serve in each area, easy check in, restaurant clean and great service, putting green in great shape. Starter got us out 30 min. early with a super nice couple. The entire course was in spectacular shape...I will be telling friends, it is a must play. Thanks Golf Now for a great Sunday.

Played at this golf course a couple of times now. The course is well maintained and in very good condition, not a long course but good for beginner like me just trying to learn the game. Staff is very friendly. Would definitely recommend this friends, great value for the price. This course is my default choice for now.

Its is a good course for a mostly par 3 course. Its not a easy course by any means. The greens are very fast and difficult. There are a few water areas that will challenge you.

Sand was a bit thin in the bunkers, and the clubs that I rented where rather old. As a VIP member I played for good price.
