  • A challenging par three course with good conditions. Not a pushover. Good mid and short game practice. Was not too crowded. Lots of fun. Highly recommended for a quick round with testy holes and...  more »
  • One of my favorite courses in the Valley! Well maintained all summer long, complimentary water bottles, gorgeous views and can finish 18 in about 2 hours.
  • This course is gorgeous. #12 is one of my favorite holes in AZ because it's hole-in-one central! (Note to greenskeeper: Flag should always be on bottom-tier!)
  • I think the course layout is really fun and I love the mountain shadows resort but the $30 price tag for a round in the summer is quite steep when the greens are in such bad shape. There was barely any grass on them. Pretty much un puttable. I'd imagine in winter time they would be in better shape. I think $15 would be a better price point for summer golf based on the shape of the greens. I will try it again in winter and report back. The staff was very good and the place looks fun with a cool bar and pro shop.
  • If you want to brush up on your short game, this is the best place to do it. Executive course with some of the most challenging greens! Grab a bite to eat at the bar when you finish. Raul and Bobbi are the best!
  • Was soo looking forward to checking the course out since it had been redone. But, terrible experience overall so not likely I'll be back. The starter was the last straw so I left and played Silverado instead (9 holes done in just over an hour there). Pls get your sign updated a sign or make sure nav knows how to find you!!!
