It was taken into work by Tom Lehman course designs. The setting is serene,with terrific views of nearby mountains, and several deer and possibly I guess a few wild deer.The course is still raw and in developement, but the outcome of the hopeful design is shown through photos on various holes. Fairways on most holes are in great condition, a few may need more attention. The long term plan here is to go private, and considering the high aspirations of the course I can see that happening. There isn’t a boring hole on the course. Many provide great angles to approach the green, with strategically placed washes that force concentration in every shot. Shorter hitters can comfortably get around the course, and longer hitters can keep the driver in the bag if they choose this approach. Th greens are in great shape, with challengs pres noted by shelving, and undulations that make every putt interesting. Bunkering is fabulous both in the fairways and especially near the green, several requiring high soft shots to exit.
Practice area is well removed from the playing area so range balls in or near the fairways does not exist. I say practice area because it is one of the nicest I’ve seen. Staff is extremely friendly and top notch. The club house is still under construction so your currently looking basically at a small apartment in size. Furture designs show a Marvolous 30,000 square foot gem.
It’s well worth the drive and price, at 80.00 dollars on this day. North and East of Scottsdale, but an easy drive.
