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.

Would travel: 30-60 Miles, Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again

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.
