Nice course - greens and fairways in good shape and some challenging holes. Surprised to see so much water in play on a desert course, but that made it even more interesting. I was completely unfamiliar with the course and staff were very helpful. The ranger even came out to check that I was enjoying my round. I didn't stay... More

You can't beat the vista views of the mountains on the 18 hole course. There are some challenging water hazards, but generally, the courses are long and well maintained with a few sand bunkers, trees on both sides of the fairway and lots of hills, big and small. You can also try the package deal of 9 holes, cart and... More

We had out of town visitors last week and took them golfing at the Desert Hills Golf Course. Everyone enjoyed the course, a little bit of everything. Greens in good condition, fairways mostly green and some lush areas. Good value in the afternoon. Great having the military planes flying overhead doing maneuvers as within a few miles of the Marine... More

Had an enjoyable round of golf. The greens were excellent and the fairways in very good condition. The price was quite affordable. Pace of play was good (3hrs, 45 minutes for 18 holes). Only negative was the golf carts are quite old andwould recommend that they be updated.

Was not sure what to expect from golf in Yuma but this course surprised me. Well maintained. Overall pretty good shape. Not a tough course but challenging enough. Was nice that you had view of the surrounding farmlands. Round was 4 hours... Clubhouse is nice and staff is very friendly. If you visit and can get a round in I... More

Was a fun round. In the city so easy to get to. Not super challenging but fun to get a quick round in. Have a great 9 and dine deal.

Ok, we played the little par 3! While it helps build confidence in your short game it is really too easy. We played nine, I got two birdies and two pars and just blew two way ones. It was fun, no sand traps, no water hazards and the grass was alright. Also no shade to speak of. This said, it's... More

Even if you don't really like golfing, it's worth stopping by to check out the restaurant. The greens are pretty and you get a great view of the planes doing practice runs, especially if you're in town around the time of the airshow. The bartender is awesome, as well as the staff at the Pro Shop. They have a lot... More
