Designed by famed Jack Nicklaus, this 18-hole championship desert course is dramatic in design, featuring plenty of large lakes, deep bunkers and steep drops off the edges of greens.

This is a great golf course but you better have your A game. Most of the greens are elevated with huge steep banks in front of them. If you are just a little short you bounce down into traps with 10ft plus banks in front...More

Having been excited to book this course, it turned out to be a tremendous let down. The course itself was in good shape but was virtually nondescript. Combine that with poor signage (as to where next tees were, etc) and it was just not as...More
