What a beautiful course! After a season of trouble, this course is well kept, scenic and fun to play. The remodeled clubhouse and Bar/Grill is classy, comfortable and the food is great!

The front and back nines are very different. The front nine is fairly straight forward, the back nine becomes tricky with risk reward choices on several tee shots - usually not worth the risk so you can wind up hitting irons off the tee on a par five and several par 4s. The first few holes are a lot of... More

My wife and I played the course and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We live in Arizona full time and we understand that with the excessive heat we have been having that keeping everything green and alive is a challenge. The course is a fun, relatively easy track with wide fairways. We thought the greens were very good also. The staff was... More

I should have listened to previous reviewers. This course is in need of some serious help. For starters, you don't charge for range balls if someone is paying for a round of golf. That's petty, just give them the small bag to hit. Next, spend some money and water the course. They talk about how they had to redo all... More

After the accidental loss of their greens in 2015 the club was saddled with justifiable poor reviews. Happily, new owners have more than fixed the problems. New greens, new management and the nicest staff we have met make this club a keeper. Of the eight different courses played during our stay Dove was the favorite. A combination of a friendly... More

If it's the season they are overseeding you will get a great deal, but the golf experience will be poor. Courses have to do this to give you the great experience later in the year - so look at the overseeding schedule for the area you'll be visiting before you book if you plan to do a lot of golfing

Includes lovely flowering desert plantation, lots of interesting holes, lightning speed greens and a challenge in places! We even managed to see a bobcat!!

Played 18 holes and had lunch afterwards. Course was in good shape but the greens were just fertilized and very hard and quick. Cart girl was very nice. Staff overall very good. Food in the restaurant was good- had the burger.

I heard this course had died due to a chemical they put in their ponds but it appears to be coming back slowly but surely. Fairways are in better condition than the greens. The greens were very sandy and hard. Staff and club house were nice. Yes, I would go back.

Thank Kim I
