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.

Yes, it does rain in the desert, but don't let it slow you down. Light sprinkles during the first 5 holes, but not enough to send you for cover. Course is a lot more forgiving than it looks. Fairways are actually fairly wide. Most fairways...More
