I played in the rain with the temps at 40 degrees wearing shorts and a cotton hoodie. I was freezing, drenched and would do it again in a heartbeat. One of those rare winter days where parts of phoenix got snow!!!!! Amazing, amazing views and very well maintained. I am not a great golfer so found the course challenging but... More

We go there frequently and really enjoy the outside patio for dinner or appetizers. We have enjoyed their great Sunday buffet and nice indoor setting with some excellent food choices. We also enjoyed New Year 2013 with a party of 20 friends. Great food choices from lobster to great shrimp cocktails. They had music in the bar and about half... More

Many elevation changes. Immacuately maintained. If you are single digit try the Championship tees for a real experience. Saw several mule deer during the round. Good Luck.

My wife and I took a golf school package just before Thanksgiving. It was perfect, lessons from Terry Evans and golf on the Dinosaur or Sidewinder courses in the late afternoon - and all part of the package. The facilities were excellent, food good, staff very friendly and the golf courses in excellent condition. The Dinosaur course in particular was... More

If you could imagine what a desert course should be, this is it. Vegetation, rolling hills. Very well maintained course. Scenic views at every angle. A lot of Par 3's. Challenging but not over the top.

Course was in fantastic shape as it wound through canyons of homes. At the edge of the superstitious mountains and a relatively easy ride from Scottsdale.

The front nine are challenging enough, but if you play the back nine you better bring a bucket of balls.
