Most amazing 2 rounds of golf I have ever played. It was a first for playing on a desert course and think I am now spoiled. Not sure I can be more descriptive, it was breathtaking.

Played the Canyons course. Fantastic experience. Great layout and in awesome shape. If you are lucky enough to play here count yourself amongst the privileged few. The houses along the Canyons course are owned by the rich and famous

A gorgeous club with a never ending array of sights and activities. The service is impeccable, the menu is delectable and if you don't visit this is one time you'll regret not doing so.
