golfscape’s Community Golf Course Rating (avg. from 781 golfers)


“Great course, just as it appears on tv for the professional tournaments. The amenities, locker rooms and restaurants are all what you’d expect of a top tier golf course. We played just prior to the desert classic tournament so the course was walking only, which was fine. Very walkable course if you prefer. If we had more time I wish I could have stayed for the night golf as well.”

“Stunning backdrop. Great service. Great clubhouse. Course was in great shape.”
