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.

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.

This course was a great value. Pace of play was pretty slow. I was part of one of the only foursomes on the course. 3 members in my party are still learning and we had a lot of twosomes behind us. We let a few groups play through but there were still more twosomes behind them. It got to a point where we would let one group play ahead to just have another twosome waiting on us again. I felt a bit rushed for most of the round. I would still recommend the course but next time I’ll have less people with me. Staff was super friendly.

Great value. Greens were recently punched and sanded which is expected this time of year. By our noon tee time the greens had dried and rolled super fast. Has enough legit par 4's to challenge you. Staff friendly. My buddy and I were paired up with a couple of fun playing partners. Overall we all had a good time.

From the forward tees the course is perfect for the older golfer that has lost distance but can still keep the ball in play.The middle and back tees can pose a challenge with long par 3's, dog legs, a couple of tight fairways and plenty of water for a desert course. Some bare spots on the edges of fairways, but the greens are in good shape and there's sand in the sand traps!

Greens need a little more tlc, don't really run true, pretty slow for this time of year. Pace was great though, got through in just under 4 hours. Tried to buy a pair of woman's sandals that were in the clearance section, still way too expensive, too bad.

i have played western skies several times, oddly enough there was water everywhere except on the greens. The greens were hard, dry, and browning in most spots. The fairways, rough, and the bunkers had water and puddles everywhere. If they only put half the water on the greens as they did in the bunkers

We had a good time at this course. They could use a bag drop area, but other than that it was a good experience. Head a pre round drink in the bar, then hit the course. The fairways were in good shape and the greens were in good shape. Pace of play was a little slow as the group in front of us had an over inflated sense is how far they could hit their drives. They waited till the group in front of them were in the green B4 they tried off. Other than that, it was a great day.
