  • We have been to this restaurant before and we were looking forward to coming back. I'm giving two stars because the view is amazing, the food presentation is excellent, and the food tasted fantastic. The issue today, one member in our party is diabetic, one elderly. We were hungry. We waited over an hour for our food and it was over a half an hour for our order to be taken. The restaurant was not overly busy.
  • I always play here when I visit. Both courses are excellent with good greens. Very nice restaurant/bar area outside & the service is pretty good. The staff is friendly. If I had any complaints it would be, that for the price you're paying in March, you shouldn't have to deal with maintenance crews all day. They are polite but it still interferes with play. We played both courses in one day & they were omnipresent......all day. I understand the work involved to maintain a course, but it could be planned much better. This was not an issue at any of the other courses we played in the PS area, & I remember dealing with this the last time @ DW. Also, as long as you're going to have these guys out there, how about conditioning the bunkers? They are hard pan & don't appear to have been worked on for quite a while.
  • We played the Firecliff course. Top notch course!!! Fairways were in perfect condition! It was so lush green out there! Greens were great too, not terribly slow and not blazing fast. They said it was difficult, but actually shot low. Would have had my best score if I didn't kill myself on 2 holes. I was hitting it straight all day though. Fairways are wide open. I'd say it's forgiving. A couple dog legs. There are a lot of hills, traps and water hazards, bit o was lucky not to get in many of them. I'm definitely coming back to try Mountain View.
  • The Mountainview course was magnificent! And quite the relief after the playing on the Stadium Course at PGA West yesterday! Playable while still being a bit of a challenge. Outstanding conditions!
  • Course in good shape. Excellent customer service. Facility is beautiful.
