Great course and beautiful location in the low rocky hill, back side is to die for.

Great course and even better restraint. The guacobacon burger was more than could eat. The course is in good shape and greens while fast were well taken care of.

Descent Course with great views.

Fairways in great shape and greens were good. Some greens were difficult due to slopes. The course was much more than expected given the price.

Great experience....

Wow... when we were teeing off on #1 a couple drove by in their cart and heard her say "now the fun begins". We figured out later why she made that statement.... The back nine is one of the most scenic and toughest 9 we have played. what a wonderful time.... Ready to play there again.

Good course, would play again.

Good golf course for money. Front and back nine totally different. Greens in good shape. Fun little track, not extremely hard but enough of a challenge to be fun. Staff very friendly. Enjoyable place to play.

great Value for mountain golf

The front nine is a traditional municipal type course and flat. The back nine are similar to Arrowhead with changes in elevation on 7 of the 9 holes. Great value for the very reasonable cost.

Lightning fast Greens and beautiful backdrop

I really enjoyed this golf course , from the ever changing/blind tee shots, to the pin placement and slope rating, this made for a challenging yet simple round of golf! If your shooting em straight, you'll have no problem owning this course. If your not on the other hand, bring a few sleeves of balls!

Front Nine Crowded Back Nine Challenging

It is really hard to rate the overall course. Overall the course is beautiful with many challenging holes, but it could be laid out a little nicer. The front nine has a few holes that are stacked on top of each other. However, when you get to the back nine, it feels like you have changed courses all together for you hardly ever can see individuals playing the neighboring holes due to the mountains and valleys that the holes are placed. If you have ever played Redlands Mesa in Grand Junction, the back nine here has a similar design and feeling. Overall, we had a great time and we will return for future play. If you only go to play nine, the back is the prettier and more challenging of the two.

because there was a junior tournament we had to start on the back nine and then ran into high school play

the course caters to much to local members. after starting on the back nine we had to fight our way through high school players one group of five high school boys trying to qualify for whatever that would not let us through. After waiting for them on 4 holes they finally were told to let us through. other groups were hole jumping to avoid this issue. we felt like we were not supposed to be there. Course was the best condition that i have seen it in.. tee times should not have been given out that day..... I would only recommend this course if local play is more structured.
Starting on the back, Junior tournament, high school golf on the back all made a unpleasant round for my wife and I.

Great mountain back 9. Dramatic and challenging.

If you've never played this course, you owe it to yourself to enjoy the beautiful views on the entire course and challenging back 9.

Close to where and live and affordable!

I love the change of the front 9 versus the back 9. The back 9 is so much fun and I usually see deer on the course which makes it always scenic!

Will definitely play again, back 9 spectacular.

We were pleasantly surprised to find that this was a Mountain course with beautiful scenery. The back nine was a delightful treat with elevated t-boxes and challenging shots. Loved it!
