My girlfriend’s son said that this course has the best “Price, Conditions, Challenge “ in the Western Phoenix area.....he wasn’t kidding. This course for $24 for 18w/cart could match most $60 courses with Blacks at 6,944yds that I’ve played in recent years. Of the four (4) available tees, we chose the Gold 3,085/3,286yds / 69.2 / 116 for this Par 36/36 golf community layout. The full green rolling fairways were generous in their landing areas and rolled out 20-50yds nicely. The 15-25 of rough was mostly a grassy hard pan that runs into the typical desert landscape. You also couldn’t escape the views of Estrella/White Tank Mts in the near distance as they enhanced the normal flat housing views. Firm sand traps dotted most landing areas with 1-4 scattered around to protect those smooth adulating greens. Today they were rolling at 8-9 and were quite difficult to judge speed and break. Front 9 had some forced carries (water/ditches) like #2 a 375yd Par 4 with a ditch at 210yds. The #6 154yd Par 3 has a full water carry to the large adulating green. The #7 is a RH dogleg with 180yd water carry on this 329yd Par 4 unless you hit the inside cart path and get an extra 100yds. The Back 9 has a few waste area carries, with #12 a 386yd Hcp 3 one challenging Par 4. The #15 321yd Par 4 has a split fairway that rewards an 220yd+ drive to the rightside fairway, as the left is only 190 yds long to the waste area. The finishing #18 hole can stretch to 601yds with a narrow trap infested fairway that highlights your challenge today. I ended up shooting 42/41 w/35putts with son and grandson enjoying the wildlife of rabbits and coyotes that roam the area. You won’t be disappointed playing a great warmup round here before heading to the other high end tracks.
