First course I ever played at which turned in to a disaster on the back 9 as it is turns into a desert course. Fortunately the balls I was losing on every hole I had purchased at the goodwill (30 balls for 5 bucks). Have gone back and played since I have improved on my game and I really enjoy this course. The 18th par 3 is one of the best views in the valley. You can play this course for pretty cheap throughout the year.

Just played the course this past week and while the layout has won a number of awards, it was a disappointing experience as there are a number of things that need improvement for the course to get more than 3 stars. The outside service staff was friendly and took care of setting up clubs in the cart, the driving range was indicative of the rest of the day -- due to the small driving range area, warm up balls are plastic foam balls that felt like hitting marshmallows. On the first tee box, the tee shot is uphill to a blind landing area. It was a guess as to where to hit the ball and the scorecard graphic of the hole was not overly helpful; this was the first of several "blind shots" on the course...and the carts do not have GPS so that made things a bit difficult to figure out your target. Another drawback is the carts do not have coolers, so beverages from the on-course cart had to be bought one at a time instead of stocking up along the way. The layout is "gimmicky" and has a number of holes where you should hit 3-wood or a hybrid because the fairways are easy to hit through with a driver. The only positive about the day was that the bar in the pro shop building offer golfers all day "happy hour" pricing on drinks and food after the round. The nachos was huge and definitely enough for two people. Overall, this course is not on my "replay" list...there are so many other courses in the southeast valley that have better amenities and conditions for your money!

I'm writing this review because I believe all of you should know about my experience here so it doesn't happen to you. First off I book my tee time on Golfnow.com and when I got to the course they had a junior tournament going on so I started on hole 6. Second there driving range doesn't have real golf balls it has whiffle balls. Third I called the course to see how there greens were rolling and they said there were about a 10-11 and when I got there they were about a 5. Super Slow!!!!!! Fourth the score card reads yardages that say 500 yard par 5 when really the hole was about 440. I played terrible and shot 68 that's how easy the course is. There carts don't have coolers in them so your drinks will get hot. The staff wasn't very friendly and I can assure you even for the great price it is not worth it. Take my advice I am a very avid golfer

Golf carts are old and ugly. Very slow play. Greens extremely small but good shape. Golf cart stopped working on the 11th hole. Course would not do anything about it.

Nice course. I like the different elevation changes on the course. Front and back are different - front is more traditional, more fairways, back goes to more of a desert course. It's really a challenging course without going too far. Driving range has those little foam balls that I can't stand.

Beautiful scenery with a challenging layout. The back 9 is more of a desert course and you have to be pretty exact with your shotmaking.
