Saturday challenge

Wind, water hazards, Narrow fairways with drop off on one side made this course a fun challenge.

An average, yet pleasant outing

I like this course because of its low par and low slope, which means my wife can actually drive the greens on some of the par 4s. She's not fond of the 500+ par 5s on the courses I prefer to play, but this is a great course where we can both have fun and no one gets frustrated. The greens are pretty unpredictable this winter (slow and you really have to under-read the breaks), but it's just a steady, low-key outing time and again.

Very Nice course with some challenges :-)

First time here, but we had a great game!

You get some challenges throughout the course for some long par 3's and 4's. The weather was beautiful and all 3 of us had a good time, even though the score was not fantastic..haha

Will come back again ;-)

No starter, no Marshall, no snack bar, no nothing

I am a regular golfer at El Carisa and other area course, and was terribly disappointed by the golf course's current management and the handling of my tee time. I was scheduled in the middle of a men club and there was no starter to get me in. The one person in the Pro Shop was a young kid who didnt care. I have never had such bad service here or at any course in the Valley. I will not be coming back. And I am going back to Golf Zing.

It’s a good place for newbies to learn golf.

Some of the front 9 green surfaces were filled with leaves and other dirts from the surrounding trees and droppings from ducks all over the course.
Some holes needs signs to help guide the golfers around the course.
Otherwise, it’s an enjoyable place to play with new golfers.

Awesome Exec Course, plays longer than it looks.

Hidden little gem. Really enjoyed the course, of course a little nicer fairways is always a plusZ overall the course was challenging yet designed for all skill levels. Definitely going back soon!

Greens in good shape

The greens were in very good condition. Smooth rolling without being too fast.
On a side note, one side of the driving range has fallen into the 18th fairway. It must have blown over in one of the many recent wind storms.
