Designed by famed Jack Nicklaus, this 18-hole championship desert course is dramatic in design, featuring plenty of large lakes, deep bunkers and steep drops off the edges of greens.

This course is fairly open with a couple of very challenging holes. The fairways and greens were very well taken care of and overall we had an enjoyable afternoon.
