I’ve always liked this course. Played with a friend whom was his first time. He really enjoyed it. The greens are rolling true. I made a 40 ft birdie putt that started on my line. If you want to score low on this course you need to be able to work the ball both directions off the tee box. Still very playable if you can’t. The course is in good condition for our transition period.

Home of the 5 1/2 hour round, not a bad layout but the overall conditions were just fair. Staff in club house should look for jobs where they don't have to deal with people.

Good experience however the staff was not very friendly. The carts did not include a cooler which is a must in the Arizona heat and they also charged for a cup of ice on the course.

We had lunch at the course before the round & that was the only good thing about the course. Dry, dusty fairways & poor greens. Pace of play slow. Staff are worst ever - definitely not a place we would okay ahain.

Tees, fairways and greens are in very good condition. However the rough is almost non existent and in areas almost just dirt. I think it’s just early spring conditions and should improve once the bemuda grass returns.

The area around the greens was so hard that it made chipping very difficult. There is not enough sand in the Sand Traps so the Sand Wedge bounces off the sand and blades the ball. Fairways were good but you need to get more live grass around the greens for chipping.

The fairways are green and well manicured. The greens are well kept and have challenging slopes with some pin placements. Sand traps in many cases have little or no sand in them. There are three or four lengthy par threes that are a difficult par. Overall, the course is well kept and good value for your green fees.
