The course was in great condition but the pace was a little slow for a Tuesday. The tee boxes could be leveled and better maintained. This course is great for working on your short game. I would recommend it to friends.

The nicest people in the world work the pro shop. The pace was really quite nice with plenty of time to enjoy each hole. One issue I have and I KNOW it's not the fault of the course because people need to fix their ball marks on the greens is the fact that a lot of the greens looked a bit like a teenager's face. I don't blame the course but yowza.

Lovely, easy course perfect for beginners otherwise.

Fairways and greens were in good shape . The driving range is to the right of the first hole so a slice will kill you. Experienced golfers playing the back T’s will find some decent lengths. Beginners who move up will be within a 100 yds. Sand bunkers are well placed and guard the greens in front on several holes .

Fun course

This is a really nice executive course that features some of the best views in the valley. I play it every week and really love the overall experience. The staff and amenities rank up there with the best of Vegas. The par 60 course is always in immaculate condition. With excellent greens that are challenging without being overly difficult.

A golf experience this strong keeps you coming back.

Was a Shot Gun start this particular day, and I actually was skeptical.... but WOW ... What a smooth flow of 18 homes. Just right, AND the weather was great.

Thank You Desert Willows for not GOUGING the consumer for a round of golf. My gosh other places should take the same approach!!! They might get more people playing....

The course just completed overseeing about two weeks ago, so it's still soft and cart path only. The greens are still a little sandy and there are some dead spots around the edges, but they are actively trying to repair those areas (you can see the patches of new sod around the fringes). It's been a favorite course of mine - great place to work on the short game
