Typical Aeration time

The course was just punched and sanded, but understand that it's part of maintaining a golf course. Staff( Carey, Pro Shop ) was up front and and very Professional about informing me about these conditions.
I, of course, will be back in a few weeks when Mother Nature does her part.
Also, played with two high school students on break. Cameron and William were very mature and polite. Hope to meet more of them on golf courses, everywhere!!!
PS. The Beverage Cart Guy( yes, Guy) was a kick in the pants with his upbeat personality!!!

Outstanding course for any level of play

I LOVE Desert Willow........it provides an immense array of terrain to sharpen all aspects of play. S8mply put the course is excellent for all players. It also has a chipping hole and a great putting area. The driving range accommodates a large number of players. This range allows any clubs, some ranges say NO DRIVERS...not here.
Did I say I LOVE DESERT WILLOW....I know I did, I can’t say it enough !

Windy weather
Used cart

Cheap but obviously for members

This was the first round of our vacation and I had a new, untried set of clubs and different golf balls.
First surprise was no locker rooms. So we had to change in ladies' and gents' toilets.

We went to driving range and the to start round. Starter advise there was a 3-ball and 2-ball ahead of us. But they played as a 5-ball! Course is a glorified Par 3 and all Par 3's are tricky. Round wasn't too slow at 3.5 hours, but on our return, no-one to take cart, had to carry clubs through club-house as no external route. Pro Shop was closed at 5 30pm and we had to leave the practice balls as the driving range closes on a Thursday at 2 30pm. Whilst low-cost, not high score on customer service.

Really Enjoyed the Day

Nice lunch to start off. The pro shop staff was friendly and made us feel welcome. Starter was very nice and helpful too. First couple holes are a bit intimidating for a first timer but the course evens out quite nicely. Although it is a bit tough playing in the wind. All in all an enjoyable day. The only issue we had was having to haul clubs from the parking lot to the course through the building. If there was an easier way it isn't marked and nobody pointed one out.

Good short game practice.

Par 60, so 12 par 3's & 6 par 4's. Par 4's are pretty short too, so course is a good test of your short game. Greens are good & fairly tough. Overall, would recommend.

Great course and friendly staff

My husband and I played this course with friends. It's a great little course with a lot of par 3's, which was perfect for our first game this season. Don't let the par 3's throw you as it has enough water and sand hazards to keep it interesting.

Don’t use GolfNow unless you join VIP - had to play in horrible weather 20 to 40 mile an hour winds or lose my money- never again will I make reservations early
