I have played this course for several years and I must say that this year has been by far the best in years past. For as many course improvements they have done over the par several years this by far has made the biggest difference. Great price helps as well. Great facilities

Fairways were overwatered and ball lost roll and was constantly covered with mud, especially in the fairways. Superintendent needs to back off on water to dry out the course quite a bit. Due to this factor, will not play course again. When we got to course, there is no one to check in your bag and no sign for bag drop off. Greens were in very good shape

Played a round there Thanksgiving week and had a 3:15 tee time for $20/player. Can’t go wrong for the money. If I lived locally I would def repeat this course often.

First time playing course so I did not know what to expect. Got much more than I expected. Very good greens, interesting layout and GPS on the cart. Fun course to play just a little out of the way for me living in the north valley. If in the area I would highly recommend and will definitely play again if I am out this way in the valley.

Golf course was in nice shape, except that they had over-watered it significantly. I understand that it was recently over-seeded, but there was casual water everywhere. Some of the traps were flooded, others were gooey, some areas near the greens were so wet that the soil had turned to mush and then the mowers drove through it and turned it to soup.

Too bad, otherwise the course was in pretty good shape, pace of play was great (under 4 hours) on a Monday morning.

the course is in great condition, no cart path restrictions and the greens are rolling pretty good. The prices are starting to go up due to the weather, holiday season, and the course getting in good shape.

First time playing this course, it is a nice course, I plan on playing it again. I played from the white tees and it was around 6200 yards. If you can hit it straight you will do well on this course. Greens were in good shape. If you are in the Gilbert/Mesa area give this course a try.
