Gereat layout, conditions so so

Love the layout of this course, however, there are signs of poor course maintenance in areas. That said, the tee boxes and bunkers were well maintained and the greens were very good. Patchy fairways and hard packed mud /sand around some of the greens took away from the overall pleasure of this course.

Hot But Fun

Played this course earlier in the season. and had a great time Came back for some summer golf in the desert which can sometimes be tricky. Many courses often close early and reduce their services such as snack bar etc.

Staff was small but attentive. Even poured our group ice cold beer after golf even though the bar was closed at the time due to summer hours.

Course was in outstanding shape and greens were excellent and some of the best I have played overall.

Great Course

This was our 3rd time at the Resorter this week. The course was empty and well maintained. If you are there early they let you play early. My only complaint is that we tried to eat breakfast there twice and both times left hungry. On Tuesday our tee off time was 7:50 and they said no breakfast until 8:00. There are signs etc that also say 8:00 -so our mistake. Then Monday we tried again at 8:30 and they said sorry no food until 11:00. The 4 of us had to leave and go to a fast food place. It even says breakfast 8 to 11 on a sign in their golf carts. Other than that we enjoyed the course

Very nice and could be beautiful

I was a little reluctant to play after reading a few reviews but was pleasantly surprised, yes the course is just a little dry but what a fantastic layout... with a little water and detail maintenance this could be a fantastic course, I play golf in the area when I come to town a few times a year and will look forward to playing here again

Not again

Had not played here in 10 years, was working in Desert and passed by saw it was priced fairly cheap on my cell...had time to kill, so went to play....No thanks, course was not very good 10 years ago and was even worse now...played fast...then looked course up and found it for sale.....poor people that think they live in a Country Club, fairly sure no one will buy and fix this one back up......

Course needs water!

The four of us played here yesterday while visiting the desert for a birthday party. Course was very dry, brown, needs help. Ice machine was not working, so had to go to clubhouse to fill cooler for the cart. Pace of play was fast since no one else was on the course. Can understand why!
Would not play here again.

Sad

Sad shape for a ‘country club’ course. Doesn’t matter the price....golf should be on a clean course where one can enjoy the outdoors. This has dried up water holes, fields of tumbleweed, etc. sad sad sad

New Course

Extremely long even from the front first and second tees. All greens are elevated and protected by bunkders. You have to have your game to score good. Couple of the holes were very uhique that
are not found in other courses. I will return and play again.

Good basic fun course

Nice basic not too fancy course. My only complaint would be you need a beverage cart to bring refreshments to the players. A cold beer would have been great on the course.
