“Great golf”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 October 2013

Had a fun day and really enjoyed the course. Best of the PGA courses in PGA WEST. You will find the cost to be high, but well worth it

“Grin n Bear It.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 September 2013

Another fun track on the PGA West property. You can count on Jack to design a nice layout, unlike that Dye character :-), I always enjoyed playing here and this trip was no different. Maybe even better since I won some $$$!

“Hit the Fairways!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 April 2013

One of the hardest of the 6 courses here. Jack went crazy with mounding and raised fairways. if you miss the fairways you will be in a sunken area with thick rough...very difficult. Great condition and overall a great facility. In my opinion, along with the Palmer Private course, as tough or tougher than the Stadium course but does not get the publicity. Must play.

“Challenging and great condition”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 May 2012

Very nice course with lots of trouble if you don't pay attention. More traditional style then a desert course. Nice variety of holes. Great staff.
