This is a great place for lunch or dinner. It's located right on the golf course so you can bring your clubs along and play around or two before you have lunch or dinner. The service is great and they are quick to bring your meals.

Nestled in the heart of Fountain Hills. More of a green course than desert/rock course - not as easy as it looked on line but very enjoyable to play. Understand why the win the #1 public course award - would play again.

All but one kind of fish was battered and fried pieces. Coleslaw very commercial. Chowder was very good. Kind of expensive for chowder $13.00.

Nice course layout with above average challenges. GPS carts without enough warning (had to push carts too much)! Practice facilities poorly defined. No extra charges for practice balls.

I dont play golf but I love to go to the Sunday buffet and sit on the porch with my friends and enjoy the view and the soft breeze. The food is great.
