  • We stayed at the resort during Christmas week and bought one of their frequent players cards for 99$. It was well worth it. It gave us a free round, discounted golf and free breakfast or lunch on our ...  more »

  • Course was in very good shape, and greens rolled true. Not spectacular from a visual standpoint, as the track is basically flat and without mountains or canyons to navigate. However, our group include...  more »

  • Neither course is anything amazing but both are in good shape and the greens were really quick and really firm. Carts have a nicest GPS systems I've seen with the menu with the exception of keeping score on them. Staff is all super friendly and there's a nice big pro shop with lots of clothing options. The wild horse grill is a nice spot for food and drinks..
  • I can confidently state that this golf course is the best I have ever visited, and quite likely, the best I will ever have a chance of visiting. I rate it thusly based on the marvelous scenery alone, just beautiful! Granted, my experience of golf courses is limited and I am used to the drab backdrop of the Midwest. The course itself is nothing too challenging, but good for a pleasant round of golf now and again. Full of wide-open fairways, I have golfed on courses that were otherwise simple, though made trickier due to constricted fairways. I also appreciate how beverages are served via golf cart. You can see all manner of flora and fauna typical of the Desert Southwest including rattlers, coyotes, and even roadrunners! It's like being in a Wile E. Coyote cartoon... let's just hope we don't get nailed by errant rockets or overly elaborate traps worthy of Rube Goldberg. I say this with all sincerity, if you are anywhere near Scottsdale, then check this place out. Even if you're not that into golf, this is an enjoyable location.
  • The courses are challenging and fun and the staff make every visit a welcoming experience. Their local card program is the best in the Valley. The club does tremendous work to advance the game of golf through tournaments, hosting the Vision 54 golf school, player development program, and support of youth golf programs (The First Tee and PGA Junior League). Course conditions are typically superb, even in the heat of summer. Playing a course without having to look at surrounding houses is an enjoyable experience for golf in the desert. Players of all skill levels can enjoy both courses. The golf shop has a great selection and the food is always good in the restaurant. They upgraded the golf carts in 2017 with GPS (and geo-fenced fairways -- stay out of the desert), but both courses are also immensely walkable. Seeing the wild horses just off the property is always a treat when they are around.
  • Beautiful setting and creative architecture. We had lunch on the patio. Food was excellent. The presentation of the food was very plain. Really doesn't matter except that everything else was so perfect and the plating could be tweaked a bit to make it perfect.
  • Really easy course in typical resort constitution. Fairways are a football field wide. Even in the brush you can find every ball. Keeps speed of play good. Not much of a challenge but good with rental clubs. Taylor made m2 rentals are good.
