After a frost delay we had a great round of golf with the best greens we played on this golf trip. It was a great experience with perhaps a little bit too much time spent on the cart paths which are lengthy

Loved the course, but would help to have GPS on carts. Long between holes so could not walk it, house lined.

The course is in great shape with fantastic scenery on every whole. The course has reasonably wide fairways so an errant ball off center can usually be found. The greens are in good shape. There does not seem to be a straight putt on them! We saw plenty of wildlife while playing including multiple birds, rabbits, quail, and even sighted... More

Full range, good service. The course was amazing. I'm so glad that I chose to play. I wish I had just made a few more putts. Golf carts only for either course.

This was one of the most beautiful desert courses we've ever played, not just due to the mountains in the distance but also the natural landscaping from tee to green on every hole. Roadrunners added to the charm. The overseeded fairways were cut quite short. The fast greens rolled or tilted for challenging putting. There are many elevation changes and... More

Wow ~ haven't played here since 2002 and was a bit surprised with all of the houses and apartments. The course itself was in fabulous shape. Greens were immaculate. Wasn't expecting the length between holes and crossing over major roads ~ pretty sure those roads weren't there before but I guess that's progress. The course itself was fun and a... More

On our stay we played the Canyon course and enjoyed it but it was a very chopped up layout. it seemed as though we were doing more traveling on our golf carts than we were playing golf. Played here about 12 years ago and it didn't seemed so broken up then. Heck, some of the holes it took us 2-3... More

Nice greens, but very fast. Well stocked with cold water, but a bit if a drive between some holes. Staff was very friendly.

Very scenic and challenging course. It was in very good condition and pace of play was 4 1/2 hours. They had a freeze delay but did a great job getting everyone out and around the course. There are 2 course, I've played both and they are equally great courses.
