Fun Course

Good course. Tees fairways and greens are good. Bunkers lack sand. Rough is dormant. If you are a golf junkie you won’t mind the rough edges.

Cart paths only, due to over seeding, but in nice condition. Hopefully they can keep the water flowing and keep it that way.

Good conditions and making strides to improve

Played 4 days after reopening and the course was in average condition after overseed. The course has always been a well designed course and the layout is great. There are no bad holes and some real tests here.
In my opinion it went downhill a lot over the past and in the last year or two you can see that there is much improvement. I am unsure what the seeding will do, but overall the quality and playability of the course is significantly better.
The restaurant was good and the beer carts ladies were a hoot.
I recommend it for a good test and I trust that they will continue to work on it as it is a beautiful setting and very nice designed course.

Course in good shape

The course is in good condition post oversees. Fairways in good shape and greens looking good but are a bit slow at this point. Great to see the greens are now good versus the temporary greens that were being used this summer. Rough is thick and does penalize you in most cases. Pace of play was great today and staff were great. There course was cart path only as expected at this time and should continue to improve over the next couple of weeks.

Me and the Outsider service staff might have 2 different opinions of wide open course.

Upon arriving I was immediately greeted and taken care of by the Outside service staff. He came over to my car and grabbed my clubs so I could go inside to check in. Their computer system was down so I had to provide them with proof of reservation (NO Big Deal). When I got back out the outside service staff said it should be SMOOTH Sailing and you should get right around. I think he was on some sort of drug or maybe he was NEW. The pace of play was horrendous. I played maybe 2 holes before I hit the wall of Grumpy old Members. The type of members or players that dont look back, and just focus on whats ahead of them, even though they were not keeping pace with the group ahead of them. I ended having to play 1-6, skipped to 10-15, then went back to 7-9, then after that went back to complete 16-18. After the round I usually stick around but today that was happening, I was ready to get out of there. Its a good thing I had a coupon code cause if I paid anything more than what I did it wouldnt have been worth it.

Good value for the rate

Fairly easy course to play, some of the fairways are really tight with houses. Luckily I never hot a house, but I heard balls hitting them real solid. For late summer in AZ the course is in good condition.

Beautiful views, competitive

Every hole is bordered by mountain views and beautiful homes. The course is in pretty good shape before and of summer in Arizona. We were surprised that there were 3 temporary greens. Other than that, greens were in excellent shape.

Quiet, beautiful place to golf.

Looking Hopeful

They are working hard to improve the conditions here. They are planting more salt tolerant grass (paspalum?) to help with their high salinity well water, new golf carts, and overall better course conditions than I've seen in a while, especially considering the "non-soon" of 2019. The greens are still a little slow after the aeration earlier this month, and three of the greens are still under repair, but another week or two when the weather breaks, the course should be primed to bounce back nicely.

Call ahead

Greens on back nine were in terrible shape. There were a couple actually closed and temporary greens were being used.
There should be some warning about these conditions so you don’t waste your money.
