Length 6744

Rating 70.3
Type Public
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.

Day before overseeding

Course was scalped , completely dried out, sand traps trashed , overgrown rough and around box areas ! Played fast, got great extra yardage, good pace of play, but terrible for allergies , blowing grass , and overall astetics of course were obviously in shut down mode. Was disappointed that it wasn’t pointed out on GN prior to booking or offered discount by golf shop @ arrival , not worth the amount charged

Sunday Golf Outing

Course coming along well, much better than last time we played, greens good shape. We were paired with two 14 year golfers that chose to walk. Both preparing to try out for their high school golf team. We let them know at the beginning we play ready golf. They played as they would at a high school match, no problem for us, others on the course not so. One person yelled at us saying slow play, we played in 4 hours and 21 minutes, if a problem, then no walking everyone rides.

Great value

This course is in great shape. I was very impressed. Not much shade though in the hot Arizona summer.

But they did have plenty of water available.

Course Getting Better

Course has come a long way since last time I played it. There’s more grass on the fairways now and greens were in good shape. Might start playing it more often now. Price and pace of play were also good.

Sunday Golf Outing

Early tee time there was lots for water from overnight

watering of course. Made play messy and made play not enjoyable and at best constant stop of play in the four players.

Gavandeventer,

So sorry for the over watering on Sunday. We are currently growing in bermuda grass and with the expected highs being over 115 degrees we wanted to make sure the course had plenty of water. We started to cut back the water to normal so you should see much better improvements moving forward. Thank you for your feedback.

What happened to the grass?

This is my third summer playing this course. I used to be so impressed by how nice the grass was in comparison to similar courses in the area. It has only gone down since. There was literally no fairway grass on some of the holes, just dirt. Tee boxes and greens were in good shape. Just awful fairways. I love this course, please fix it.
