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.

The course was in need of water. The fairways where dry and very little grass on them. The greens were in good condition. Nice clubhouse with good service and drink specials. Course needs water and some care and would return to a great course.

I've played this course many times, and I've never seen the fairways this bad. There really are not any fairways to speak of, really. They were totally burned or soggy from too much water. The greens, on the other hand, were fine, as were the bunkers. Staff, as always, were very nice, and since there were very few golfers on the course, I completed my round in 2.5 hours!

The day we played, the fairways didn’t have ANY grass in them. The Bermuda grass has not come in yet! I like the course layout, and the greens were in great shape! They had watered the course a lot, so with no grass in the fairways, you get bare lies with soggy ground! Won’t play this course again for quite awhile! Too bad, I like the course.

Practice greens really fast. Fairways browned out and offered a lot of tight lies. Greens in decent shape but slower than practice green.

The course was a little wet standing water all over the course. But the course was in good condition despite the water. I’ll definitely play it again more this summer.

Our six player group had a good experience at Western Skies yesterday. We had avoided the course after a bad experience a couple of years ago. We were very pleasantly surprised to see the striking improvement in the condition of the course, speed of play, and friendliness of the staff. It was going to be our last shot playing there but everyone agreed that Western Skies would now be on our regular list of options for future play.

great value and course was in good condition. greens are better since they did some small aeration and sand. some places were over watered and a little muddy but rather have that than brown burnt conditions.

Greens were fast and smooth, great to putt on. Most tee boxes were tore up. A fair number of the "sand" traps were either wet or full of water.
