I am 65 years old and have learned too many golfers love to hit the big stick...that is not where you need to work your game. Getting on the course and working your short, mid irons and putting will get you the best results......this course is my favorite for just that... I really enjoy Desert Willow, thank you !!!!!

Course was in pretty good shape. Played at 1:30pm and was finished with 18 at 4:00pm. Incredible pace of play, greens are fast but don’t have much break to them. You get to use almost every iron on the par 3s which I really like. You will definitely have several birdie chances if you’re hitting the ball decent.

Played course with my wife ( her first time in two years). Great place for her get reacquainted with the game. Played 5/16 and worked on my irons. Pace of play was normal. Came back 5/18 and we're waiting on each hole. Was on vacation, so not a big deal. Beverage cart came by often, so even better. Staff was fantastic. Will always make this a stop to play before longer courses. GolfNow prices were great. Course conditions and greens were challenging , but fair. Plenty of traps.

I love Desert Willow. Great layout and it challenges your iron skills....too many players feel the need to keep DRIVING for distance. The game is won and lost with your short play, practice that more and your score will reflect it.
