Forget This Place

I quit after only two holes. The greens were uncut and so slow that putting and chipping was a total waste of time. The management was kind enough to give me a raincheck. Most of the courses in the desert allow their greens to grow longer due to the heat, but this was too much. I strongly suggest waiting for summer to end before choosing this course. Nice staff, but the greens caused total frustration.

First Time Playing

Exactly what we expected.

PLayed a round today with a Hot Deal and with the forecasted heat we expected the course to be empty as it was. Pace was great and the conditions were good for the time of year. Bunkers weren’t ready for prime time but thankfully I didn’t visit any. Staff was minimal as we would expect for the time of year, but the course was in decent shape and we played with some higher handicaps with a 4 hour pace without really seeing anyone else. Would do it again as we like the trade off of extreme heat and great pace of play at these great courses. Water up and get out there. It’s a great time to play.

The course was in good shape overall, the pace of play was very slow and the staff was not very friendly.

Always play here!

Come to the desert once a year for 2 weeks for golf and will play here at least twice. Enough said. I like it and that"s it.

Player Friendly Sucks

Nice staff and good practice area, but this course is for players who prefer to avoid a challenge. The greens are flat with hardly any break. Fairways are very wide and present no challenge. Bunkers are dirt and dried mud. The rough is as short as the fairway. Low handicap players should choose the Pete Dye instead. If golf clubs are wondering why interest in the game is declining, player friendly is killing it.

Lovely

Overall fine course. Some of the bunkers were puddled and many need some work, but fairways and greens very good and I like the design of the course a lot
