“Raven”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2012

Well kept course. The price is always right in the summer at any course in the Phoenix area.

“Great bargain during the summer”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2012

I really tried not to like this course. Things didn't start off well with a starter that just didn't have the customer service thing down at all. Nice kid...but very incompetent. He moved our tee time back just because the group behind us wanted to move forward and were regulars. Not bad in and of itself, but he didn't know how to do it without ticking some of the guys off in our foursome. Aside from that, the course was great. As all of the other reviews say...very different for AZ. Condition was immaculate. Fun layout. The group they put me with wanted to play the white tees and it plays VERY easy from the white tees. At the finish of the round I stopped and worked with the course pro who was fitting clubs. He fit me for a driver and actually instead of trying to sell me a driver told me that my current driver is perfect for me. Pace of play was great...but we teed off at 6:40 am and played in just under 4 hours.

“Best golf customer service in town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2012

I have played here for well over fifteen years and always find it a very fair but tough test of golf. I play from the tips here and have hit many a shot from the wood chips around the trees that line the fairways. The mango towels in the summer months sure make it a good experience.

“Very Good Course”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2012

We really liked playing this course. It is a great break from some of the desert courses here in the valley. You don't even feel like your are in the desert. The conditions were great. Will play this course again.
