not worth the effort

Too bad I can't give it no stars. Pro shop staff was very nice. Course conditions were one step up from a cow pasture. Green conditions were very fast but did not putt true. Gopher mounds in fairways. No course marshal so pace of play is whatever the locals wanted to allow. Would not recommend.

First time around and will be back!

Wanted to play a nice course in the Show Low area and this one qualifies. Had a bit of a hard time figuring out how far to hit it on some of the holes so distance is a key factor. Lots of holes require a pretty straight tee shot. Driver is not always the club off the tee. Greens were very nice...receptive to shots and very goo putting speed. The pine scent is all around you as you one plays this course. I will be back again, now that I have some local knowledge.

Always love playing but greens are slick

Course is always in wonderful condition. Be prepared though the greens are fast fast fast. Not always receptive of approaches from the fairway as they can skip right off. With this being said I can’t wait to come back and play another round.

Hidden Gem

Played Bison golf club early in the morning course itself was in pretty good shape. But I have to rave about the putting greens they were some of the best greens EVER! My congratulations to the grounds staff for their efforts!!

Playing through the pines.

What a great course for the money. It is beautiful playing through the tall pine trees. Many elevation changes throughout the course. Felt very welcome from the time we checked in, through the starter, and when we finished. Considering this has been a private course for members which is now open to the public, made us feel as welcome as one of the members.

Everything I thought and more..

Great course; read a lot of reviews saying it is narrow and some holes can be, but for the most part is a pretty straight straight forward course. Being from the valley, throughly enjoyed the pined lined fairways.

Somewhat challenging layout

Hit em straight, or watch your score balloon! Very nice greens, pretty fast, and in excellent condition. Tee boxes and fairways were just ok. #18 is the toughest hole on the course in my opinion. My only gripe is getting from one hole to another is a location challenge. Cart paths are suitable for ATVs, less so for golf carts. All in all, fun track.

Great Golf

What a great time! Course was beautiful! Need to play it a couple of times to get pace of greens.A challenge, yet fair. Fairways are narrow so if you are wild off the tee...not the course for you. Can hardly wait to play it again!!!!

First timer

Played just before 8 on a Saturday. I left the course after 16 holes and 5 hours later. The course was in good condition, pace was obviously slow, course markings were poor along with cart paths.

Just ok

Has a lot of potential but the layout is weird and the clubhouse is a half mile from the 1st and 18th. If you only play 9 you have a 2 mile drive back to the clubhouse. Practice facilities are not good. Some really nice picturesque holes and some below average. Also the address on this site and google and Maps is wrong!!! Had to call to ask for directions.

Nice day on the course...

Husband and I played this course for the first time. The course was in nice condition with beautiful greens that played fairly quick. We both enjoyed the layout. We look forward to our next round here, when we will be a bit more knowledgable of how to maximize each hole. Definitely coming back for more.
