Layout is conducive to some long shots being needed to hold score down. Some target golf and some grip'n rip holes. A nice mix.

Great round of golf here for all levels of players. Gary Player designed and the management maintains a beautifully conditioned course. Challenging layout for all handicaps. Bravo.

Good course, little brother to the Dye course. Layout was good, just not in the same pristine condition. We had a blast and had course to ourselves for an afternoon round.

This course is excellent and very favorable for women using the forward tee. There are mountain views from every hole. The water features on the course are not much in play.

I played the Pete Dye course twice before finally playing the Gary Player and I was pleasantly surprised. It's a very good course, friendly off the tee but demanding around the greens with bunkering, hills and hazards. Greens were very good and fast. The practice...More

In early 2016, I suspect that the courses are hurting for business because the rates seem reasonable. This course is challenging and perhaps some of the bunkers were not really in play and you wonder why they spent the money to put them there. They...More
