Wow!

This golf course is truly unbelievable! The course is always in mint conditions and you will not find another facility like this for a public course in the area. Every staff member truly wants you to have a great time and the service all around was great! The Lil' Wick is excellent and a great warm up or close to your experience at Wickenburg. This is my personal favorite course in the entire Phoenix / Wickenburg area and I would recommend this course to everyone!

FANTASTIC!

One of the best courses I've played. Super fun and absolutely Gorgeous. Get in and play before they restrict it to members only. The layout of the course is challenging but very fair. Unlike many Arizona courses, you do not get penalized by less than perfect shots to the fairways. The Greens may be a different story. They are large and in PRISTINE condition, but many are divided into separate levels or sections and your approach shots need to be accurate to get close to the pin. Subtle slopes affect putts much more than meets the eye. This is a MUST PLAY and worth the drive if you are in the Phoenix or Prescott area.

Good and Bad

Beautiful course with extreme elevation changes. Too many par three and par fives Every hole required drive over desert area Many blind shots either off the tee or into the greens Many holes where good but not great shots left the ball in areas where up and down was very difficult. Many of the pins were set very close to the left or right edge of the big greens. This was not obvious from the fairways second or third time around would have made the course much more playable. In short, a beautiful, extremely well maintained course of unusual design fun but simply not very user friendly. I would gladly play again but would not want to play on a regular basis

Beautiful!

This is a gorgeous course meandering through the desert. Some challenging holes with water, bunker protected greens and desert to lose your balls in. There is no leaving the carpeted Fairways to look for an errant ball. Snake country...

Great Course

Although this course is more expensive than most I play I really thought the course was fantastic. From tee to green the information you were given from the placks on the tee boxes or the pocket pro provided was great. This was my first time playing this course and no one in our group had played it before.

Gorgeous conditions

From the scenic location to the immaculate conditions, this course was a delight to play. Probably the best conditioned course I have played. This is a difficult course and I would not recommend it to a higher handicap player. We found it challenging and fun to clear water and desert features. Great food in the restaurant and all staff were great.

Best course by far

Played courses in Goodyear, Wickenburg Sun City El Mirage and Prescott Valley. This was , by far, the best course yet. Conditions were 10 of10 and the layout was a better design than the Nicholas courses I’ve played for way more $$.

Fast greens, slow play

This was a fantastic course, but I gather they aren't interested in pushing members to pick up the pace. Waiting on every shot and a 5 hour round took some of the shine off of this gem.

Excellent Course

Although a bit of a hike from the Phoenix metro area, this course was worth the drive.

We had a 1 1/2 hour frost delay, but no big deal. It happens this time of year. My issue is with the starter. We had the first tee time of the day, but once they started sending groups off after the frost delay, the starter let a foursome, who happened to be members, go ahead of our group. We were a threesome. Needless to say, we waited on every hole until they finally waved us up on number 8.

Once the slow play was resolved, we had a great time. The course was in excellent condition. The layout was fabulous and the course had no quirky holes. My only course criticism would the inconsistent speed of the greens from hole to hole.

We are looking forward to our next trip to this course.
