Course was in really good Condition

Course layout and playability was great. Fairways and greens in really good shape. Only complaint for the course are the carts. The cart died after 9 holes and the replacement cart was in just as bad shape. They said they are in the process of replacing and updating their cart fleet. Pro shop had a decent selection and the restaurant had good prices for food. Overall a good course.

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

This course routinely has been a well maintained, challenging place to play.

I was very impressed with the greens condition. Noticeably firm and very well maintained. Always enjoy playing Painted Dunes.

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.
