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.

A great day on this course. I have now played it 3 times. Because of work we couldn't get out to play until after 2 which as it turns out is the best value in price. It was a bit backed up in the beginning although the wait wasn't more than 10 minutes. Some of the groups ahead of us stopped after 9 holes so the back 9 went very quickly. They have a snack cart that made it's rounds often and after play the resturant provided a good choice of beverages, appetizers and dinners. The personnel from the starters to the checkin couldn't have been more friendly and helpful. We will definitely be back.

Got to the course at 1pm, not too busy, was able to get 18 in by 4. Course was in good condition and the play wasn't too slow.

I need to spend more Friday afternoons like that!
