Great course

You will probably only lose 5-6 balls if you are a beginner like I. Course is pretty easy and hard if you have a draw. Have fun I always do. ::ok emoji:: had to type it won’t let me put real thing.

Decent course

Desert Lakes is a decent course that is generally worth the money. The greens this year were in better shape than I remember them, although the fairways need some improvement. Not a difficult course but still fun.

A nice course to play

Desert Lakes is not extremely difficult, nor is it tricky. Its usually in good conditions, but the bunkers tend to be shallow, mostly due to frequent high winds. The front 9 is relatively protected by trees and homes, but the back 9 is much more difficult in the wind.
