The course recently re-opened after a renovation. I never played the old course previously called “Desert Rose” but several in our group had and give the new course rave reviews in comparison. This course in a Links Styled track, with undulating greens and tiers. There is a flood control drainage ditch which runs thru the entire course from hole 1 – 18. The “ditch” runs along the right side of every hole. off the tee, many holes appear to have quite narrow landing area in the fairway.

One of the guys in my group hit a straight as a string drive off the tee on 7 which landed in the middle of the fairway. We watched his ball roll to the right , off the fairway and down to “the ditch”. Therefore the tip of all tips for this course. DO NOT GO RIGHT! Even if your ball doesn’t find the actual water , the 4 inch rough and severe slope will create an awkward lie with the ball well below or above your feet on a drastic angle. A resident golfer here told me ” You have to remember they designed it as a flood control basin FIRST and golf course SECOND.” Which means the entire course slopes toward the drainage ditch. The ruff that borders the right side of the fairways is probably 3-5 inches thick in spots . Surely an effort designed to help balls stay on the course and out of “the ditch.”

Additional Thoughts

There are a couple of what I call ‘goofy’ or cartoon holes but all in all, the course was in fantastic shape. The guys in our group all said they had never seen the greens in such great shape. They were FAST ! And like many links courses, the greens were a formidable defense if you were out of position. I’m not a huge fan of links courses but I rather enjoyed this track once I realized that a 3 iron off the tee on most holes was sufficient to leave about a 150 yard 2nd. Great Value ! $25 round and that came with a $10 voucher for lunch afterward!
