Really nice course in great shape. Not too exciting and pretty flat but very well groomed and cared for. Play moved quickly. Really nice day on the course.

My husband played this course for the third time during our visit to Phoenix. I rode as he played. It was a delightful round of golf, and we both loved it. The staff was great, and the course was in great and beautiful shape.

We played the front nine of each of the two courses because we were sharing the course with the LPGA Founders Cup Tournament. A professional quality golf course walking distance from your room at the JW Marriott!
