Great pace of play. The course was in an okay condition. Restuarant bar atmosphere is not conducive to staying onsite after golf to have drinks and food. Need to modernize the facility.

Great practice area!!

The palm trees and water on this course make it feel more like Florida golf than Arizona golf. Good value, good pace of play, and conditions were very good.

A nice, older style resort course with fast undulating greens, good bunkering and lots of water in play. The fairways were green and lush however, lots of waterfowl on some fairways makes avoiding the bird poop impossible. DON'T LICK YOU BALLS. Ha,ha... The round includes cart and range balls so good value for the money.

Loved the course but couldn’t get even a hot dog at the turn. Came thru about 215pm and no food at the turn. McCormick could do better than that. Bev cart didn’t even have a sandwich. Cmon man!!!

The course was in reasonable condition and the layout fairly straightforward not too interesting but challenging with water often coming into play. Would recommend you get a course book if you have not played it a few times.

Was not told it was cart path only when I booked, or when we checked in, only found out when we went to our cart and found a notice on the steering wheel. Not impressed. Between the slowness of cart path only and perhaps the booking intervals, things got very backed up by the back 9. A couple of tees had 3 groups.

Like the layout and the staff were very nice . Main problem was there was no warning that they were still cart path only when I booked my tee time. There was not an advisory on golf now and there was not any warning on their website .
