Golf course reviews, ratings and comments

“Hard to complain about anything for the rate I paid. For less than a cart rental fee in Canada I got the cart, range balls and 18 holes of golf. One course condition were the greens were patchy in areas (not bad for January), but fast. Course quite open of the tee and lots of open desert if the driver wasn’t working. Nice afternoon in Arizona.” —bmx

“This is a nice course. Fairways and greens were in very good shape. The greens are fast compared to what I’m used to in Wisconsin. Fairways maybe a little narrower than average. Fairways & greens only are irrigated. The rough is desert.” —Anon

“Had a great time, people are friendly course was fun.” —Ponch
