This was my first round at this course. After reading the other reviews i wasn't sure I wanted to play it. I also heard from a local that it isn't that great, but OK for someone learning to play.
After playing the course, I can say that I enjoyed it. I have an index of 10 and have reasonable control of my shots, which no doubt helps enjoy the course. I played the blue tees, which measured 6244 yards, a rating of 71.1 and a slope of 130. There is ample opportunity to lose balls on this course, with the meandering creeks and elevation changes throughout the course. However, I only lost one ball. Plenty of holes allow you to hit your driver off the tee, but there are also others where you should consider hitting a long iron or hybrid club. You definitely need to think about your choice of clubs.
The best parts of the course are the greens. They held shots well and rolled quickly and true. I had read that the greens are small, but I would say many are medium sized and others are reasonably large.
I agree with other reviewers who commented that using the drainage tunnels are cart paths was a bit strange, but given the many canyons and general terrain, I can understand why. Between that and the elevation changes, i would recommend using a cart.
The green fees are very reasonable and I would definitely play this course again.
