The golf course at the Western Skies Golf Club has a traditional layout with many different challenges and beautiful views. Surrounded by picturesque mountains and valleys, the course offers a taste of the countryside, which is further enhanced by the many aged Mesquite and Pinon trees sprinkled throughout. It features tree-lined fairways with generous landing areas and tricky water hazards. Two notable holes are the 13th and 16th holes, both par 3s. Although it is a modest 186 yards, the 13th hole requires a carry over water to a heavily bunkered green. Western Skies Golf Club's 16th hole is well protected by bunkers and there is a back to front sloping green.

Still the place to play

This has become the best place to play due to their commitment to improve and make the golfers a priority. The course always looks patchy to me until play starts and you’ll find it’s in great shape, with nice fairways, beautiful greens and good pace. The course is a fair test for all abilities. Come play while the weather is still AZ cool or play early, just come play here. Pace seemed slow so then it was a slow three hour round, lol. Great place to be.

Got us off right on time

I am impressed with their Covid consciousness at check-in. Course was in pretty good shape all around. It is an easy course to walk and keep your distance.

Excellent Value

The course was in excellent condition. Fairways and greens were great. Greens were a little slow but they were readable. We were a 4some and finished in a little under 3.5 hours. COVID precautions being taken include 1 person per cart, cups raised about an inch above the green, no entry to the pro-shop. We had a great time and will come back again.
