$31 (cart included), played on Friday, February 2016 at 1:49 PM

Played this course on a Friday afternoon of a holiday weekend and it was packed but they gave me a 1:49 tee time and told me I would not finish the round before dark. However they only charged me $35 which I thought was very fair. Pace of play was decent considering the crowds and we did get in 16 holes but had to quit due to darkness at 5:45 pm. The course was perfect with wall to wall over-seeding of ryegrass, very nice greens, and great bunkers. The layout is very fair with wide fairways and very little desert influence. The course is made challenging with many bunkers and some lakes however I never felt they were brought in too tightly. Some nice short par 4's that make you either go for broke or lay back for an easier second shot. The par threes are probably the most challenging as a few of them stretch to over 200 yards. The course has 5 par 3's and 5 par 5's and never bores you. I am told that it often gets windy but I was lucky to have a perfect 75 degree and windless round. I would definitely play this again.

Would travel: 30-60 Miles, Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again, Better than average course for the area, Fair priced based on quality and competitive area pricing, Ranks with the best in this price level
