This is a private course, if you are lucky enough to get an invitation don't turn it down!

While not as good a track as the Canyons (which is one my top 3 or 4 courses in the Desert), the Mountains is always a treat to play with some great down-valley vistas and some excellent and unique holes. The several times I played the fairways were pristine and the greens in very good to excellent shape. If you have the opportunity to play the Mountains do not pass it up.

Bighorn Golf Club is a great course! That is why I scored them 5 stars. From the layout, to the condition of the entire courses and the views, you know that you are having a "top-drawer" golfing experience. Recommend.
