“great course”
Reviewed 11 August 2014

It is an interesting course. Lots of hills and greens in a bowl. Had a snake join me at the 4th green.

“Split decision”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

My playing partner and I had markedly different views of this course which we played 8/3/14. I found it to be an original, interesting and challenging track. My playing partner found it gimmicky and more like a giant putt-putt course. So here is the good and bad.

First, you'll approach the course through a dusty parking lot. The trailer pro shop is off-putting, no question about it, and the carts are like castaways from other courses. When we had to return the first cart after the first hole (longer and longer hesitation just to start up each time), the kid said "oh yeah, we've been having problems with that one." We didn't bother to ask the obvious question. Homes nearby the trailer - the only homes you'll see for the entire course - look like the beginnings of a failed development. The driving range has a natural grass tee area, but the landing area is desert. So infrastructure is not their strong point. But you're not here for that, or are you?

Playing conditions. Despite the impressions above, you'll find the course very well maintained. It has a minimalist design, with no sand bunkers, and no landscaping beyond the fairways, but the fairways are lush, greens run true, and both are very well maintained.

The layout. This is where my buddy and I diverged. I loved the approaches over natural rock walls, around the back of dunes, and the hugely tiered and rolly greens. We had to drive up to the greens several times before hitting approach shots to figure where to hit, but found the aiming poles to be mostly accurate. One hole with a blind approach has an aiming pole but also an arrow 20 yards away which can lead you astray. There are several sky-high elevated tee boxes with big vistas. You'll think either "this is really fun and different" or "this is a joke," So it really comes down to whether you're a traditionalist or an adventurist golfer.

“beautiful community”
Reviewed 15 July 2014

whoever built the homes inside the golf course must have been a construction wizard, as they are just as nice to look at as the golf course!

“Great golf course ”
Reviewed 5 July 2014 via mobile

This is a beautiful and challenging golf course, particularly for the price they charge. It's is no doubt the best course in the area. Don't let the clubhouse give you a premature attitude toward the course. The apparently put most of their money in maintenance as it is maintained well. Don't let the "watch out for Rattlesnakes" sign scare you. I have played the course several times and have never seen a snake of any kind.
