Played on Thursday, 5/18 with tee times at 12:04/12:12 due to being 5 of us. Paid $38 booking online. It’s a bit of a drive from Phoenix, about 50 minutes to the southwest, but worth it.
Customer service was great. Bag drop guys loaded the carts, quick check in, friendly staff, and a phenomenal drink cart which was around 5 times. Starter let us out early and as a five-some, since the there wasn’t anyone behind us except a three-some (they played through on 8) in the next 4 tee times.
Tee boxes were level and relatively divot free. Fairways were wide and carpet like lush. Rough was cut just a bit longer to give definition. I did not like the bunkers. Sand was heavy in deep bunkers, just made it difficult for me to get out. Greens were firm and smooth, some roll after shots into them. Speed was close to fast.
Loved the course! I had not heard of it and wasn’t on my trip radar until a few weeks ago, and I booked it mainly because of the price. Absolute gem. Catching it after the prices went down but still not hot helped a lot. I recommend it at the price I got, a steal.
