Was staying at the resort on business, so figured I would try their course out. I had seen some of the reviews here beforehand, so I wasn't surprised by anything.
I got a fairly good rate, considering the time of year. The staff was helpful and friendly. Hole #1 goes off in front of the rather classy patio area of the resort lobby/restaurant. After clearing the hill, the balance of the front nine was just OK. Fairways were tight--houses were sort of jammed up to the course--and there was more water than one would think for a Phoenix-area course. Not real long, but did have some tough holes, again mainly due to the tightness of the course.
Back nine was a lot of fun. I like desert courses, and this one--while not We-Ko-Pah or Gold Canyon--had some very interesting holes. It opens up a bit on the back 9 too, and little water. The finishing 18th was a highly elevated Par 3, which seemed like a thousand yards away.
Course, for the most part, was in decent shape. Overall, it is a good play, but not a must play.
