Desert Golf rhe Way it Shoudl Be
We played the Arroyo and the Dunes nines on a mild and blustery weekday morning. These two golf courses are perfectly manicured
with amazing greens, fairways and tees.
There are many beautiful flowering plants, rocks, and decorative cacti throughout this layout.
The pace of play was well under four hours and there were no distractions here despite the existence of a small army of maintenance workers who did their best to remain invisible.
The Dunes course is relatively short with holes protected by large bunkers and steep berms. Every hole has a dogleg and none are straight
The Arroyo course plays longer, brings water into play, and has more sidehill lies and narrower fairways.
Swede was an affable and helpful starter who later showed up on the course to provide more helpful information. The proshop is fully stocked and the sign in went smoothly.
The have a beautiful clubhouse and the dining room was full at lunch.
