Just spent Saturday night there. Did a little staycation. Next time we will stay the weekend. Beautiful accommodations with an outstanding and relaxing atmosphere. Pool was small but very relaxing.

This is the first time we have golfed here. We were visiting Scottsdale. We are not the greatest golfers but not the worst either, and we really had fun golfing here. It's a spectacularly beautiful course with a very nice pro shop too. The whole experience was very pleasant. We would definitely return. Just don't touch any cactus!!!! ;)

The staff at this place were excellent, the dinner was excellent, and the grounds awesome. We couldn't spend the night as no rooms available so don't know about that. Everything else was good.

The courses (North and South) were both well maintained. the South course is more challenging. The North course has wider fairways.

Wonderful course worth the expense. One of the nicer courses in the Phoenix/Scottsdale area. Friendly staff and good cart lady. Really enjoyed the course. Very challenging. Played North Course.
