Top to bottom staff is to be commended. Valley plays a little shorter than the Palms. Palms throws a little more water at you especially on the finishing holes. Both courses are a must play. Valley like the Palms the greens were a little slow. Tough when you have to get that picky to find something to find at fault on the course.

The pace on the day I played was a bit slow . The group or groups ahead of us seemed to be novices but otherwise the valley course is a real nice challenge. Tough greens but quite large. Lots of elevation changes ,wide fairways and just enough water to keep your interest.

Very picturesque track.

Great course for the value with GOlfNow discount. I played this course twice in two days and in excellent condition, with the exception of the bunkers. The first round the sand was much softer and easier to play out of, however the next morning the sand was hard and very difficult to play out of. Not sure why the difference unless they received a lot of water from sprinklers overnight. Practice facilities are excellent with separate access to the driving range from the Palm and Valley courses. I couldn't find any washrooms in the first nine holes, which was really annoying. I loved this course though and would absolutely play it again.

Greens were perfect, but the bunkers had little sand and were hard as rocks. It wasn't a fair test. They need to do some work on them.
