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.

Course was in fair condition and greens firm and slow. Fairways were in good shape and easy to hit from. Course played slower than expected due to the foursome in front of us which struggled from tee to green due to one of the individuals handicap. Other than the course being wet and slippery in places, we had a good times playing the course made better by the two gentlemen that joined us for the round.

Looks like over booked. We tee-off 30 minuets late and we can play only 15 holes.

There were 5 group on par 3 on back nine.

We will never play again.

Played this course for the first time. Upon checking in for a 1:38 tee time, was informed there was a tournament that morning that caused a delay which turned out to be about (45) minutes late. The concern was not being able to finish 18 holes due to darkness, that turned out to be the case, only finished 15, bummer! The gentleman that checked us in was not helpful nor pleasant. Furthermore, there was not a ranger to be seen out on the course to make sure the pace of play was honest, it was way slow! Won't play this course again and recommend you don't either..sincerely, Mr. Disappointed.

Course was decent... Fairly unimaginative and was kinda like playing the same holes over n over. Did a little bid of waiting but nothing horribly offensive. It was cheap though. They do have those cool 4 wheel golf hoverboards as well... so extra points there.

Check in easy, carts work OK , they have ice for the coolers and a water bucket for your towels, tees pretty fair shape, fairways green and soft enough for a divot, but seemingly lots of leaking sprinklers with wet spots, bunkers need sand, roughs OK ,dirt areas somewhat groomed, gps helpful, they need to attend to the water coolers better, they were dry on the back side, the parking lot needs a redo, you can generally find a fair price on GolfNow.

Pace of play was horrible,finished 75 mins. behind course recommendation.No marshalls/rangers on the course.

From tee to green,the course was in good shape,EXCEPT for the muddy & soggy areas & the standing water from a severe case of overwatering overnight!

Noticed 2 garbage cans overflowing,1 in the main bldg.'s men's restroom & another one out on the course.

On the bright side,the Fish fry was really good.

We enjoyed our round this past week at Western Skies Golf Club which presented good value when booked through GolfNow. As mentioned by others beforehand there are many areas of the course that are mushy from overwatering which caused damage to the fairways. Our early afternoon tee time was 25 minutes delayed and the course backed up with two or three groups waiting on the par 3s. It took almost 5 hours ro finish the round wth our having to play hole 18 approaching darkness. There is no ranger on the course. It appeared to be a good value course favoured by the locals. The Pro Shop were very efficient and friendly. In all honesty, we probably won't return due to the slow play.
