SLOW

The course had scheduled a tournament on the same day as our round. We didn't find out until getting to the course. The starter told us not to worry that the course would be wide open on the back nine . NOT TRUE the round got slower and slower. We quit after 4 hours and 12 holes.

Great but Slow

The course is in great shape but prepared to wait if you tee off after 12pm. No Marshall in sight.

Fun Course

Liked the layout of the course. Challenging course penalized you for bad shots, which is how it should be.

Nice and fair

Not the greatest layout, but still nice. Very good pace. You do not get back to the clubhouse between nines, and the only bathroom on the course was close. Thought for our wifes

Great condition, staff so so

Course was in great shape, smooth quick greens, thick rough, okay bunkers. Biggest issue was the staff. Starter was an idiot, forgot to notify us to go to the tee, was on his phone the whole time. Ended up going off 30 minutes late. Pro shop double charged me for the GPS, not sure why it is an extra fee anyway.

No GPS

It would have a better value if GPS was added to the package, The Driving range was closed the morning we played. The pace was around four hours.

Great facility but tough course for first time players, but had great time

Great facility for everything, practice, great clubhouse. Asked about GPS but have to pay, should be included for fee you pay. Marshall a little wayward. Had not played this side of the courses at El Conquistador so challenging , narrow some target golf. In great shape, bunkers greens in great shape.

Nice course, tricky greens.

Overall, I liked the course. Fairways were in really good shape. Greens were tricky to chip to and to put.

very challenging

Found the course in excellent condition./ Check in and starter were very friendly and helpful. Put us with another twosome and we played in 4 1/2 hrs. We think the green conditions plus the very deep bunkers along with the elevation changes make it quite difficult for the average golfer to score well.
