Simple course in good condition

Simple layout, front boring, but back picked up.

Greens are very fast but fair

Very slow pace of play, 3-1/2 hours for an executive course is not fun

Great course to sharpen your short game skills

Too many golfers think that driving the ball long is the greatest thing......most of you score is based from your second shot on each hole and on from there. People need to work on their irons, wedges and putting.....The go to the DRIVING RANGE, which actually should be called a PRACTICE RANGE. Maybe then more would work their irons and wedges. Also repair ball marks on greens, they are not divots, they are ball marks.......DIVOTS ARE IN THE FAIRWAY...fix and repair them also. Desert Willow is a well run course, from the maintenance to the clubhouse....the entire staff and management take pride in their course, and it shows.

Desert Willow is the perfect course for players to sharpen their skills. ENJOY !!!!!!!

Very nice executive course

Great par 60 course. Very well maintained. Super friendly staff. Lots of open space to find errant shots. Only complaint today was that greens had just been top-dressed so I struggled with putting!

If you are able to brave the heat, this afternoon rate is awesome. The pace of play was great, we wew do ne in 3hrs but it was 108 when we finished. Course is in good shape, greens are soft and smooth, the fairways were in decent shape only a few bad spots.

Take lots of water!

Nice executive course. Great value !

Nice course. Well kept, not as easy as it looks with wind.

It has a lot of wasted terrain that could have been used to make a better designed course with more variety.

A couple of holes that need water carries and that are almost blind shots to the green.

Proper signage should be installed for where to drop your clubs at the parking lot.

Pepsi machines at course restrooms are not working but they swallow your money anyway.

With this heat it is a must to have those machines in good working order.

Would play it again and will bring my own refreshments.

Okay, but

a decent executive type course, but why can't tee boxes be flat anymore? Thiey all seem to be undulating and this course was that way from almost every blue tee we played. One should not have to hunt for a flat space on a tee box but that seems to be a long forgotten hope in golf courses.
