This is the course I bring my out of town guests and business partners to play. It is centralized with views to die for. There are more expensive, more professional type courses around but for views, service and location there is none finer especially when anchored by a world class hotel and spa should you wish to partake. I am... More

Scenic course with manageable hazards. I brought 3 Jr Golfers. I chose not to golf myself so I could help them move along. In the end, it was just a rushed experience where we felt the need to move too fast so the pro shop wouldn't come out again and ask us to hurry up. I fully understand people behind... More

We apologize that you felt rushed during your round. Our required pace of play is 4 hours and 30 minutes and we do our best to make sure all groups are adhering to this pace. One great option if you have junior golfers would be to play after 3:00 pm. Juniors 15 and younger are free with a paying adult... More

My brother and I played the Canyon and Oasis nines on a Tuesday and they were both in great shape. The fairways were lush and the greens were smooth and true. There was a little confusion with the outside staff as to when we could head to the first tee since we were waiting for another twosome to join us.

Try to,play Desert and CAnyon 9's. Oasis nine feels more like Florida golf with surrounding community and abundant water . Other two courses are good representation of desert golf.

This is a more difficult course, but the views are magical!!! Fairways and greens were immaculate. The undulation on a few greens, however... Whew... Let's just say you should prepare for a couple three putts. Because this course is so popular, it's tough to find time to go scope out the blind shots before you tee off. So, playing safe... More

typical resort course. We golfed Desert - canyon. I was good overall. I loved the view and closeness of Camel back Mountain that was the highlight. Some of the holes are so close to the mountain and high are fun to play. Unfortunately some holes are set up poorly and really hard to play. But overall good experience. Staff good.

In my occupation I am fortunate enough to play Troon North and Quintero on a regular basis but I love this course. Great layout, perfect greens, challenging but getable. Best scenery in the city...great practice area. Very friendly and timely cart girl. Even though it was a cold morning in Phoenix, the fairways were nearly immaculate. Hardly an unrepaired divot...
