Staff were very friendly. Starter was able to fit us in a little early. Driving range in a convenient location. Snack shop staff knew we were on a turn around and served us quickly. Course in great shape. Loved the GPS.

If you plan to golf over 2 days, then the Sidewinder golf course is a great warm up to Dinosour Moutain golf course. It's a little more wide open, flat, and the greens are straight.More
