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.

Could not have had a better day at the golf course. This course is spectacular this time of year and it's wide open. We had no one in front and no one behind us.I was paired with three fun Canadians who really enjoyed the desert course. I just wished my game was a great as this course but it's fun to play here just to remind myself that really do belong in the MGA (Mediocre Golf Association.)

The course was good. But starter told us and groups in front of us that pace of play was to be 4.25 hrs.

We waited on almost every shot and it took 5 hrs to play. You would think for a Monday pace of play would be quicker. We never saw a Marshal.

Hadn't played here in years, but it's as challenging as I remembered. Perfect early-AM weather. Though tucked in between 2-foursomes, my wife and I got to play alone and enjoyed the morning. Not rushed and not pushed; the round was fine. Though it took 4.5 hours, we were not in a hurry to go anywhere so we could enjoy a perfect Saturday round. Nice staff; also had lunch at Bogey's.

The course is I awesome condition. It is a challenging course and you need to be honest with yourself about your capability and choose the correct tees to play. Playing from the right tees allows you to keep the ball in play which makes for a much more enjoyable round. I played with my 80 year old father from the white tees and that was perfect for him. I don’t play regularly and it worked well for both of us.

Booked this for my 65th birthday and my only disappointment was how poorly I played.

I found the course to be tough but fair. I managed to get myself in every bit of trouble the course had to offer but that was entirely on me. I was reminded of Robin Williams’ commentary on golf as I hacked and slashed my way from one problem to the next.

This is a great course with beautiful vistas and a challenging layout.

I would highly recommend it to anyone who would like to test their game. If you are an average golfer as I am, don’t worry about your score and just enjoy the chance to visit this gem of a course.

I'm always satisfied when leaving this course. Has good rates year round, especially during the summer. Only issue I usually see here is pace of play. Never a beverage cart nor ranger. Expect 4.5-5 hour rounds regardless of when you tee off unless it's on a really slow day.

Course is always in great shape. Greens are nice and smooth but maybe a touch slow (8's?). Not too bad considering the greens are quite undulated and can make those downhillers a little less stressful.

Condition is excellent, too many blind shots, large penalty for small misses, fairways are wide you just cannot ever see the landing area, green speed was good, greens were a little on the firm side. Our group lost 12 golf balls. Last par 5 on the front nine i had 180 to the green and could not see the green, for my third shot i had 45 yards to the green and could not see any of the surface, silly
