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.

Career low round at WS

It’s a pretty open straight forward layout but was in excellent condition. Great value and confidence building as off fairway tee shots still give you a chance. Memorable round as shot my first 69 and perhaps met the grumpiest starter ever. Guessing that’s his forte...

9 Hole Fun!

I took advantage of their 9 & Dine special! Usually we play early mornings at other courses for back nine and dine and you only get a breakfast sandwich or a burrito. We were amazed that we were able to get anything off the breakfast menu! We will be back for sure, course was in great shape!

These bunkers, you guys

First of all, I always love Western Skies - the staff is super friendly, the beer is always cold, and the courses is just a genuinely fun layout. Nothing too challenging, but I'm not the player I once was, so it's great for me. I realized very quickly the improvements they made in the offseason, especially the new bunkers. Despite the rain over the holiday, the course was in great shape, the greens were solid, bunkers perfect, and the vibe at this place is always top notch. I can't recommend it enough.

Tees, Fairways, Bunkers & Greens are great!

Course played well, especially after all the rain we got over the weekend. I couldn't believe there was no standing water in the bunkers until someone in my group told me they recently renovated them. Pace was ok but it was cart path only due to the rain. Had their fried bologna sandwich after the round which was delicious! I would recommend this course to anyone.

Course is coming out of over seeding nicely.

Great course to get out and work on our game. Greens are straight and true. Cart part only and golfers need to remember to carry their sand to their ball to repair divots. There are some areas where water features could be added. Once we leaped frog a slow foursome in front of us, we had no slow downs.

Good day at Western Skies

This was a perfect golf day if only the pace of play were better. There was a wait at each tee box with three groups on the same hole most of the time. The course was in good shape and the greens were fast and true. People I was paired up with were fun and entertaining so it was a good day. I'll be back.

Bunker redesign and overseeding works!

I've played many rounds at this course. Recently, they've done quite a bit to make this course better - and it works!! They redesigned many bunkers and added actual sand! Came back from overseed this year and is in pretty good shape. The course just got new carts and have had the GOLFBOARD since last year. For the price, this is one of the best courses in the valley!

Too soon

Looks like they came out of overseed too soon. Additionally it looks like somebody drove all over the course including the greens. I guess somebody was that unhappy with the course. Probably needed another week for the winter grass to come in. My guess is the course will be in pretty poor condition the rest the winter given what they’ve done here.

Thank you for your feedback. Looks like you played the first day out of over seed which is expected to not be perfect but you should come back and see how much the course has improved in only a week. We expect the golf course to be in the best shape it has ever been this season! Thank You

Great blockers

Course has a great layout, fairways that are in good shape especially for this time of year. All bunkers have new sand in them which makes them play true. Staff is exceptionally friendly beautiful course to play.
