The Marriott property is a beautiful place and the Marriott Golf Course is a treat for an armature like me. They treat kids well and I really love seeing golf courses realizing that the future of golf rests with children. Great course and great people. Thanks!

Unless you play twilight golf or are a member of Shadow Ridge Vacation Club, be prepared to pay $180 ++ per round. Interesting rate given that during high season the Bunker restaurant as well as cart service was closed.

I drove the cart for my cousin and watched her play with a father/son team. Pure pleasure, and the margaritas on special did not hurt. Staff was helpful, and the whole experience was a pleasure.

Staff at the club house was pretty friendly (the guy was from Loveland, CO- but I forget his name. Nice, big practice range. The course itself is very well maintained. It's harder than it appears. Pretty much 5 star all around but I wish it was priced at lower rate.

Played this course for the first time. It is truly a great course and a must play. It has all sorts of hazards but I seemed to get through all of them while having a great amount of fun and that is the name of the game. It does indeed challenge your skills which is good.

We would play this course again in a heart beat! It was open enough to use your driver. It was fair for women though, the women do not get much advantage on the tees. The course was in beautiful shape. Very fast greens and very challenging. Great staff.

The course had many rough spots on the fairways and the greens were difficult to putt on. Beautiful facility, but course could have been in better shape.

What a nice layout around and through the time shares. Wall to wall grass except for natural desert areas. Greens insulated but they roll nicely. Use all your clubs and some imagination. Reasonably priced for resort course. Go there

Not your standard designed desert course. Elevations, lots of different types of sand bunkers to say the least. Marvelous greens with major underlaytions. Nick Faldo design that is fun to play & we'll thought out. It's different ... So take the break from the standard desert design.
