Great value!

We really enjoy this course and wanted to get in a round before they close for the summer. All staff members are always super nice & friendly. Amazingly enough. The 107 temp wasn’t even bad. We’ll look to being back in the fall.

Great greens

Greens were the best I have ever seen! Fairways had brown areas, but overall playable. Greens rolled true and were soft. Would play again

Oh, them trees!

This is a fun course for playing with your favorite foursome. Worth the trip from PHX or TUS. Trees provide welcome shade, but they also create some tough obstacles. Greens need attention. Overall, great value and fun to play.

Fun track

Blue tees 6500 yds, a little over my preferred distance. Course in decent shape, greens excellent.Most holes straight forward enjoyed overall feel for course. This track is closed for summer soon, as it caters to snowbird crowd. Really like the open, but established course feel.

Best shape in ten years.

I have been playing this course off and on for thirty years and it had fallen in disrepair until this year and it's in great shape again but they are closing again for the summer. They won't reopen until Oct.

Course has nice features

Course is very well maintained and groomed. Most greens were in great shape with nice roll. A few of the greens had a few bad areas but not a real distraction. Course is longer yardage than most I've seen in this area and thoroughly enjoyable. Look forward to playing again soon.

Something totally different

I have never even seen a course like this in Arizona. It harkens back to a 1960’s style resort. Elevation changes, huge trees and tablecloth sized greens. The pro shop almost seems to be a time machine...
