This is the best course around for sure. It has two different courses on site. I really liked Saguaro but I played better on Cholla!!

After a bad experience during our stay at this hotel, Craig Benell the acting general manager contacted us to make amends, apologizing for the poor service and offering to make our next stay more than we could imagine. Thank you, Craig it made us feel important to know you wanted to make things right. Looking forward to our next stay.

Golfed both courses, Wont go back. Goofy design with no clear sense of purpose. We thought the course was in poor condition

Both courses are challenging, I preferred the Saguaro course over the Cholla. Bring lots of golf balls there is a good chance you will need them. I would play either course anytime they are fun and challenging.

Having moved away from Arizona before these courses were built, I was very excited to play some new desert golf. These two courses have great views, great conditions, and solid course layouts. The staff was excellent too. For what I consider moderate desert terrain (not flat but not mountainous), these course were beauties! They are carved into the desert landscape... More

Played Saguaro and it is a beautiful desert course unencumbered by background houses and buildings. In very good condition but as others have mentioned the traps are more dirt than sand and were frustrating. Had breakfast before our round and food was fine but didn't find the staff welcoming. Apart from the cart girl and to a degree the pro... More

My wife and I played Saquaro on a Windy, Dusty, Hot Day but still enjoyed it!! We were paired with two men from Minnesota. They knew the Course, so that was helpful. We are both 10 Handicaps, so it is not an easy Course, but challenging and fun!! The high winds made it even more difficult, but we still had... More

Played both courses and they were in good condition with very fast greens. Pro shop is nice and all the staff were pretty good in the bar/restaurant. Food was ok and reasonable cost. Staff did take a while to serve us. Cart boys were good fun and genuine.

I originally wanted to stay here for a conference but they were fully booked and I had to make other arrangements. However, they treated me like one of their own guests and organized my transport to and from my residence and the conference. They went out of their way in difficult circumstances. This is a testament of their good service... More

Played Cholla -- spectacularly beautiful golf course and in impeccable condition. As it is located in the Ft McDowell area, they apparently aren't subject to the water restrictions that many of the other area course have, so it was completely lush. But don't let the beauty fool you, this course will give you all you can handle. It requires precise... More
