As a local resident this course for the price cannot be beat. For visitors the cost is pricey so it is difficult for us to bring guests that would have to pay 3x as much as us. We ususally play when we are by ourselves,and tip for the ladies, Mountain is more friendly to our style of play.

I played the course twice at 2 different tee locations. Scored 79 and 82 respectively. Very respectable course. Will definitely try to play it again. T. Rush

Excellent course - wish we would have played FireCliff as well vs. some of the others we did play in the area. No marshall on the course - had a foursome in front of our twosome that never allowed us to play through. We caught them by the 3rd hole and stayed there the whole round - no marshall in sight. The GPS on the carts is a little small and somewhat hard to read. Very scenic course and there is actually GRASS taller than 1/4 inch in the fairways to hit off. We will be going back to play both courses - probably this summer.

The Mountain View course (one of two fine courses) was in excellent condition considering the desert weather, 100+ degrees! The staff is very friendly, including the marshall who is out there with chilled-mango-scented towels. There is also a great summer deal $85 - unlimited golf + lunch!

Challenging course in excellent shape despite extremely hot weather. Courteous staff, worked with our group of 44, providing a shotgun start.
