We were so hopeful of a good round. The starter was busy & well organized. The parking lot and staging area really need a lot of work (very rough, not paved parking). Scenic, fairways in good condition, greens okay, some very odd holes that could be improved in order to make the play more enjoyable. Worst part - pace was 5.5 hours ( a new bad record for us!) . Seems that this is the time to make money for the course so very packed. Other golfers had told us they won't go back because of pace, now we join that group :(

This course advertises as a jewel in the desert. A very interesting course through canyon after canyon. Most balls will bounce down the sides but occasionally a ball with stay out. Pace of play surely ranks with the worst in the nation. Five and a half hours for 15 holes, and didn't finish as it was too dark to wait for the groups ahead of us. We only saw the marshal when it was time to turn in our carts. The beverage cart quit at 1pm. I'd like to play the entire course however, I will have to look for a better price or pace guarantee.
