The course is par 70, with some very challenging par-3 holes. Course is well maintained, and fairway markers (125 yards, 100 yards) really help. Outstanding service at the pro shop, from the valets, the starter, marshal, and food service staff--very impressive.

This course is tucked away amongst gorgeous views of the desert and surrounding areas. Great staff and both the small breakfast hit and Tonto restaurant are excellent.

Short and boring golf course. Average conditions, decent views, good staff but nothing special about this place. Overpriced at $100+ per round. A funky layout with 9 and 18 side by side and on top of each other. Balls were coming in on several holes...More

The desert scenery (including lots of saguaros) and distant views at this course are fantastic. Sometimes the natural terrain comes up right next to the edge of the fairways, and arroyos cut right across occasionally. There are only 3 sets of tees, unusual these days,...More
