Played on Wednesday, 5/17, as we drove from Vegas to Phoenix for a weekend of golf. Excellent course to start off the trip. I was excited for it after reading and talking to Sixpez about his trip here.

Course has a private club feel to it. You pull up to a guard gate to enter the community the course runs through. The club house, pro shop, and event areas have a western motif to them and just feels laid back. There’s chairs, couches, a fire pit all around so you can watch play as you relax before or after the round. There’s some yacht rock type music pumped through speakers near the practice green. Practice facility is great. Large driving range which is included. Large putting green with lots of undulation (if you want to practice a putt that drops like 5 feet, here’s your chance). Practice green was consistent with the course.

Course was in great shape. A mild spring has kept the course in fantastic condition. Lush green fairways with no thin/brown areas. Rough was about 1 inch or so and easy to hit out. Bunkers were a bit crispy, with some pebbles. Greens were super firm, but smooth and fast. You had to just hit to the front and let it roll up. Tee boxes were pretty good, some damage on the par 3s.

Great course and worth the drive. It’s in a housing community, but they’re not really noticeable. A nice variety of holes. The uphill 9th is incredible, along with a couple of elevated tees. We paid $80 for a 11:40 tee time, basically had the course to ourselves, played in just under 4:30. Great customer service.
