Super friendly staff. One of the best golf courses I have ate at, great food. Fun, but challenging course to play especially the back 9. The greens were a little rough I thought This time, but overall, course is in good shape.

Needs more on course beverage services. Been there multiple times and only seen beer cart two or three times. Front nine has fast, slanted greens. Overall I love this course, golf has become affordable and I can finally work on my game.

Thanks golf now!

Wow... when we were teeing off on #1 a couple drove by in their cart and heard her say "now the fun begins". We figured out later why she made that statement.... The back nine is one of the most scenic and toughest 9 we have played. what a wonderful time.... Ready to play there again.

Good golf course for money. Front and back nine totally different. Greens in good shape. Fun little track, not extremely hard but enough of a challenge to be fun. Staff very friendly. Enjoyable place to play.

The front nine is a traditional municipal type course and flat. The back nine are similar to Arrowhead with changes in elevation on 7 of the 9 holes. Great value for the very reasonable cost.

I really enjoyed this golf course , from the ever changing/blind tee shots, to the pin placement and slope rating, this made for a challenging yet simple round of golf! If your shooting em straight, you'll have no problem owning this course. If your not on the other hand, bring a few sleeves of balls!

It is really hard to rate the overall course. Overall the course is beautiful with many challenging holes, but it could be laid out a little nicer. The front nine has a few holes that are stacked on top of each other. However, when you get to the back nine, it feels like you have changed courses all together for you hardly ever can see individuals playing the neighboring holes due to the mountains and valleys that the holes are placed. If you have ever played Redlands Mesa in Grand Junction, the back nine here has a similar design and feeling. Overall, we had a great time and we will return for future play. If you only go to play nine, the back is the prettier and more challenging of the two.


Player Tip: Played from the blue tees and on #15 I believe, we might have been able to reach the green in 1 because of the extremely elevated tee. But be careful!

the course caters to much to local members. after starting on the back nine we had to fight our way through high school players one group of five high school boys trying to qualify for whatever that would not let us through. After waiting for them on 4 holes they finally were told to let us through. other groups were hole jumping to avoid this issue. we felt like we were not supposed to be there. Course was the best condition that i have seen it in.. tee times should not have been given out that day..... I would only recommend this course if local play is more structured.
Starting on the back, Junior tournament, high school golf on the back all made a unpleasant round for my wife and I.
