Robert Trent Jones Jr. designed Las Sendas Golf Club's course, opened in 1995 and among the toughest U.S. courses. Two Zagat surveys have ranked it among the top 50 U.S. golf courses.

Las Sendas Golf Club offers a desert course demanding top play as it takes golfers through the Usery Mountains, with a vista of Phoenix as the tradeoff for managing rough land close to 1,800 feet above the desert. Jones didn't create a course with whimsical decorations like railroad ties, and he didn't build targets. The golf course is for those who strategize, mapping the way from tee to green.

After a round at Las Sendas Golf Club, head to Las Sendas Grille, for the full bar, including wines from California, Australia and Europe, as well as four tap beers and domestic and imported bottles.

Have golfed many times before. Always enjoy for many reasons, one of which is that the fees are very reasonable. As well it's always in good shape, every hole is different, it challenges the better golfers and yet there are many tee box options which makes it playable for less skilled players. The overall layout is very efficient with cart paths going where they should go with well designed and designated parking spots for the tee boxes. You seldom get any build up of carts at tee boxes and thus when people are teeing off they don't have the annoyance of carts driving up on them. The driving range is very good and the practice putting area is as well. Additionally they are right beside the first tee box so even if you are running tight on time you are able to get at least a little bit of a warm up. The chipping green area, right there as well, is ok but really needs to be levelled out somewhat as its very hard to get a feel for your chipping, especially I suspect for the higher handicapper.

Don't forget your rangefinder and play a target orientated game. This course can eat you up, especially the first couple of times if you don't think about your shots, but it's so rewarding once you get the hang of it. I very often play as a single and am constantly meeting people especially groups whom come into the area every year to play and they "never" miss Las Sendas in their circuit.

The course is also one of the most beautiful in the valley with magnificent vistas. As well the patio bar/restaurant is a must. Great food and drinks with an outdoor patio which is one of the best views in the city, overlooking the valley with live entertainment, patio heaters, so much fun. We never miss it and I recommend it to everyone I golf with.

Anyway, a little long winded but I suggest you'll really enjoy the experience.

Really enjoy this course. Not too difficult. Weather was cooler but very comfortable. Met some great people from St Louis. The staff as always is friendly and informative.

The driving range and warm up area are great, though I don't enjoy hitting from mats. That day we did.

Frost delay that day but did a great job of informing everyone as soon as can, and worked to fill some gaps to catch up.

Course has a beautiful setting and was in great shape with very friendly staff but the people running the club house need to turn around and look out the window and see that there are literally FOUR groups on the 10th tee waiting! Not a couple groups, FOUR! Course is overbooked and was even brought up by employees working the course that it is the norm. Waiting every single shot takes the fun away. Won't be back.

Great track..well manicured..greens very receptive yet challenging.

However, upon checking in, pro shop staff did not inform me that I could not hit balls at the range AFTER my round even though Golf Now said cart and range balls included. Pro Shop Assistant #2 spoiled my experience.

We were late for our tee time and the lady in the pro shop did a great job getting us out on the course by changing groups of members around. The two gentlemen we played with were awesome. Helping us all the way around as it was my friends first time on the course. Thanks Greg and Mark , your hospitality was exceptional. The course is in super shape.

The overall course was satisfactory. However pace of play was very bad. When arrived at first hole was told by starter that there was a Members Tournament ahead of us. It would have been nice to have been informed of tournament prior to payment. At the start we were already 2 tee times behind. Four groups waiting on 5th hole played slow waited every hole and every shot. Due to slowness required that we stop at hole 14 due to darkness . Continued on path to hole 18 only to find path was completely blocked by members carts watching their members complete this hole. Could not pass safely so had to unload our carts and carry our bags to the Club House and then to parking lot. Have left message with Manager but have not had response.
