Nice course! Was worried about the reviews saying the pace of play is slow but had no problems. I finished my round in about 3 1/2 hours. Maybe it’s a weekend thing. The course was in excellent conditions. The greens were nice and soft. Great value for what I paid. Will definitely be back to play this gem again soon.

When we checked in as a twosome we were told they were out of carts, they were slammed and that we were looking at a 4 1/2 hr round. We were OK with that. There were 3 groups of 3 in front of us. We tee'd off at 1:44 and finished in the dark at 7:05. The couple that joined us quit after 9. We should have too.

Every time I’ve played this course (4th time) I am very pleased with the round. It’s a true Arizona style course amongst the hills and the homes. It is well maintained and with the my preference of early tee times I get the best price.

Pace of play was typical. A little back up on the turn but no more than a 10 min wait. Once we got rolling it was fine. Course is in good shape. Would have been nice to have a cart girl. I didn't get any ice in my cooler so drinks weren't cold. Considering it was a hot day having a cart girl would of been nice. Other than that and my poor performance it was a great day. :)
