“Still a solid test of golf”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2012

I am not impressed with the warm up / practice areas or pro shop but they are adequate. If you like to go from the trunk of your car to the first tee you will be just fine. The first hole can sure bite you if you do not hit the fairway with that desert area between 1 and 10 on the right and the desert on the left as well as the water as you approach the green on the right. I like most holes and enjoy the fact that there is usually a break on the hole after the ones that can bite you. Also the views are good.

“The city made a huge mistake”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2012

The recent redo of this course is a disaster. What was a pristine walk in nature is now a extremely, sun drenched walk with no water except at one location, extremely long par 3s except #11, too wide open. No club house, restaurant, showers, plenty of carts for those lazy ones. What a mistake! I shall not return.

Good test! Greens were nice, a little rough around the edges, but overall a challenging layout! Good value Paid 58 on a Friday
