Course is well situated.

Fairways and greens are in excellent condition. Nice par 3 for short game practice. Course has several ponds with

an assortment of water fowls which I appreciate.

Disappointing service. Great golf.

We play White Sands depending on weather 1 to 2 times a week. Despite the heat, greens are I good shape. Disappointing service a the proshop. We always book through Golf Now. First the person said we had no booking for a tee time and rudely demanded proof. When I provided an email confirmation she said we had to pay despite the fact Golf Now charges a credit card directly. When the proshop staff finally agreed we had a prepaid fee time she continued to be rude when we asked about how the day was going and if there were players ahead of us. Although we arrived 30min early she told us we need to be sure to to be late. Hope her day got better. Had a great game despite it all.

Hot weather

Excellent Graham Cook designed short course

This is a Par 3 short course that features an abundance of the design features that Graham Cook is famous for, namely, bunkering and greens that have subtle swales and tiers. The course was in excellent condition despite the hot, dry weather we've been having for weeks. Kudos to the greens keeper.

They have a first rate practice facility... driving range, short game area with bunker and putting green. Canadians are a little bit behind the U.S. in recognizing/appreciating short/executive courses in general... too bad.. they don't know what they are missing :>)

Hot deal good value

This course is fun for a poor golfer like me, but tee times are not observed so one winds up feeling quite rushed.

We let a duo who started early on the first tee (before their scheduled time ) play through but still had someone pushing us almost the whole course.

Excellent

Even for an accomplished player this course allows one to play irons and the bunkers are awesome as are the greens.

Really I recommend this course, 90 minutes for 9 holes, thumbs up.

Practice round

Previously took a Aim Point putting course with G. GunnPro at the center. Received good instructions from Graham and decided to practice there on there par 3 course. Fantastic center with putting , sand trap, driving range. Great place to fine tune your game.

Great little course

Interesting layout, great condition, lots of nice sand traps and water. Perhaps challenging for beginners. While the course was in great condition and very lush, the greens are very slow. It would be great if they sped up the greens.
