We really enjoyed the dramatic holes here. Elevation changes are second to none, but there are some holes once you get over the mountain that a flat and boring. However, the holes going up and over are very fun. Conditions were great and definitely one of the better deals pricewise for golf in the Scottsdale area. I recommend taking the 45 minute drive to play here if you never have.

This is a must do when visiting the Phoenix area and trying to decide where to play. Easy to get to, professionally run, from tee boxes to fairways to greens beautifully maintained, life is good when you play a course like this. The first 7 holes scenery is spectacular so get your pictures taken then as they are breathtaking We will most definitely return on our next golf visit.

I have played both courses and enjoy the golf every time. The food in the loud, noisy, restaurant is something else totally. The food is mediocre at best and way overpriced. This restaurant is a wanna be resort but pricing alone does not a good restaurant make!! It is so noisy in the maid dining room from other peoples conversations, you can't carry one on at your table unless its with the person right next to you. In our party of six, not one entree was satisfactory. Food over-cooked, served cold, too intense Mexican flavoring, or not at all. On the breakfast buffet there was an extra charge for an omelet!! On a buffet!!!

This is by far one of the most scenic golf courses in the Phoenix area. When one tees it up at this course, thoughts of shooting a low round should be left in the car at the parking lot. It's impossible to concentrate on the game when there are so many stunning views to look at. The course is always in top notch shape and it does take a couple of rounds there to get a good idea where the landing areas should be.

This is desert golf at it's best. Not exactly target style, but it's important to pick your spots and accept the penalties as well as the rewards. This is definitely a treat to play.
