First time playing Used cart Played 18 holes Excellent weather

Very disappointed by the following:

Price was higher than expected. Price quoted on-line did not include taxes.

Was told fairways were wide.That is if you include the hard-pan rough and alleged desert (really just dirt).

Driving into dirt was forbidden and shut off carts.

Course was ultra dry from rough to fairways to greens.

Forced to have bag-boy clean clubs as they were being cleaned while putting on 18th hole. Adds yet another unecessary expense.

I have played this course for over 15 years and in all that time I have never had a bad experience. As far as golf courses go in the metro Phoenix area, this one is a gem. The staff is incredibly nice.

This course has been on my Mancation circuit ever since I played it back in '04. I have always returned to this course on regular basis because it is a fun track. The course is challenging, yet rewarding. The greens aren't ridiculously crazy, the fairways are generous and the elevation changes are mild. The course is a bit out of the way so that really helps with the pace of play. Great course to return year after year.
