Nice wide fairways

The course is very playable with fairways that are hard to miss. Our foursome finished in under four hours on a very hot day - life is good!

My best game

everyone I was with today did about their average. I shot well below my average. The course is a lot of fun the layout is nice. Good variety in types of holes. Some wide open, some more challenging holes sand traps to one side and 8 foot drop-off to desert to the right. I will be back

Wide Open Fairways!

Course is very player friendly, large greens and wide open fairways. Staff was very helpful. Course was in good shape, no drinking water on the course but Ana in the restaurant is always there with a cold one.

Nice day of golf.

Surprisingly for this time of year the course was still in good shape. The only negative were the greens were pretty bumpy,so it was difficult to keep a putt on line at times.
