Beautiful horse but I believe upon booking around we should be informed that there will be groups is 6 to 8 and think of us and 40 minutes per hole is a little ridiculous and I would really like my money back I was only able to play for holes I have a wedding to go to In October and I'm not sure we would've finished in time

The course was in pretty good condition considering it was late in the season before overseeding. The bunkers have some of the best sand to hit out of. My only complaint would be the greens are a pretty bumpy. All & all...it is a great value and look forward to my next round .

I was a little disappointed in the shape of the fairways. They were rough and plenty of bald areas. If your ball goes in the ruff it is usually buried due to the grass is not cut well. I liked the layout, but the course needs some TLC. Since I got a hot deal with golf now. The price was right. The staff was friendly and nice clubhouse.

The pace of play was great for our foursome. We were unhappy with the conditions of the course. The fringe was a mess of weeds instead of grass. It looks like they're having problems with the fringe. We did think the greens were in good condition. The fairways are not what Painted Desert used to be. In the future we will not consider Painted Desert in our top selections.

I've played this course hundreds of times and usually enjoy playing here. This is the worst condition the course has ever been in, crab grass everywhere including the greens, dead spots everywhere also. Weeds are everywhere, the golf course is an absolute mess. The great maintenance has disappeared, which is sad! I hope they get it back to normal, but it is going to take some serious TLC.

For starters we had a smoking hot deal of $14.

We arrived 40 min early and were met at the bag drop by the starter. He loaded the bags and took the cart to the putting green. We checked in and ask the starter if we could start early. He turned us loose and we never looked back. 2.5 hours later we were done.

The only criticism is of the cart paths as they are in rough shape and the rough was a little shaggy. Keep your ball in the tight fairways and all is good.

Not nearly as pretty or technical as Desert Pines, but a nice, moderate course that is fun to play. Practice facilities lack short-game area, though.

This course is extremely tight. The rough is basically rock and dried mud washes and almost impossible to hit from if you fell off the tight fairwayS. Lots of uneven lies on the fairways , so even if you hit the fairways you would sometimes roll into the washes which were like concrete. Greens were good and bunkers were ok. Slow play. Waited almost every shot

While the winds where high, the course in excellent shape. Requires relatively straight shots off the tee, course is fair and fun. Greens were superb and fairways/tees in great shape. Highly recommend as it a beautiful setting. Maria best bartender in Vegas!!
