In General

Course is in great shape. Fairways are good and greens are in excellent condition.

Course rangers need to help with the pace of play.

There was a couple of five-somes in front of us and was really slow. Round lasted 5+ hours

Avoid the league times

I was looking forward to experiencing some good desert golf while I was in town, so I had high hopes. Unfortunately, there were 4 groups who went out in front of me and they were all part of a league. As such, they refused to let me play through and the pro shop staff acted like nothing could be done. The course itself was in ok shape, but not quite what I expected for the money. The greens were nice but the fairways were a mix of burned spots and overwatered swamp. I eventually joined a threesome of locals who were very nice in sharing course knowledge.
