Came for a sunset dinner and as it turned out, they had an Oktoberfest special on the menu which was very good -- (if you like a large variety of meat on your plate which is the typical German Oktoberfest style menu.) Very attentive service. Will be back

Wife and I along with our neighbors had the pleasure of dining here last night, reservations strongly suggested, and what an outstanding dinner. Sunset was great, outdoor eating for sure, service was untouchable and the menu was the best part of the whole evening. Excellent choices but the beef medallions ended being our favorite among the eight of us. The manager made everyone feel right at home by personally visiting every table and chatting and our waitress was the best!!!! Prices were just right for the quality and service. Outdoor or indoor dining available. Please keep everything like it is !!! Highly recommend you visit for and evening dinner............

This course is difficult but enjoyable. The scenery is beautiful up on the mountain. Club house staff is friendly. And the restaurant is small but the food is good. You won't be disappointed!

My group played Estrella Mountain during our 2010 golf trip to the Phoenix area. This course was not on the original plan, but due to rain in the area on one day, we opted not to risk a high-dollar greens fee course to a rain-out. We had played Estrella Mountain during one of our previous trips, and while it was a good enough course, it did not rate a replay. However, it did meet the requirements for this situation: proximity, lower cost and no crowds (the rain had chased everyone else away, but these hardy Ohioans were ready for more golf).

The course was in very good shape. The tee boxes were not chewed up and were actually long (probably not mowed today due to the rain). Fairways were green and fairly lush. The greens were also in good shape. I did not notice the condition of the bunkers (I don’t think any of the group found a bunker, which is unusual). So the overall conditions were a grad of B or better. Pace of play was not an issue, as we pretty much had the course to ourselves (there are just a few other hardy hackers out playing).

The layout is good when looking at each hole individually. There are four sets of tees ranging in length from 5300 up to 6850 yards, for the par 71 course. Good mix of hole lengths, although the par threes are all in the 170 to 190 yard range from the tees we played. This is not a classic desert course that would have large areas of desert/sand/waste area to negotiate. It is more of a park-style course in a desert setting (tree-lined fairways, granted the trees are palms and mesquite-looking) and a little water in play on just 3 holes. There are several dogleg holes, some of which provide a risk-reward for trying to cut the corners. Just be careful if you do not make the corner or end up in the trees, as the mesquite-looking trees are ball catchers and will knock down any shot that comes too close. The only issue with the course is the overall routing of the holes and how tightly packed the holes are. There are several places were a slightly errant shot will end up coming close to players in adjacent fairways. This can be a problem with a shot that is trying to cut the corner of a dogleg, or a shot that is hit through the fairway.

There is a driving range at the course. There is also a modest clubhouse and proshop, with very friendly staff. Greens fees were $49 (early March 2010 on a Sunday), so reasonable.
