Great courses, excellent staff. Played the Palmer course, more traditional layout, compared to the Faldo links. Requires position off the tee and accurate irons. Enjoyed the course, the staff, and the food. Highly recommended.

This is a very nice course in they valley. It's not like the courses up in the hills so a little less scenic but we still really enjoyed our round. Pro shop is very nice and staff were all great.

We played the Faldo track. Beautifully manicured, it was an very enjoyable round of golf. Despite over 180 traps, I thought the course was generally fair. The issue is price. While exorbitant greens fees are not unusual in Phoenix-Scottsdale this time of year I feel...More

Playing the Faldo course means lots of traps, desert and tough greens. The winds seemed to stay in our face the entire time. Greens are quicks and tricky. But, very scenic and fun.

Lots of sand traps at the golf course but they didn’t get in the way (most of the time). The course itself was actually very nice and I really enjoyed the time spent on this course. We even saw some local wildlife (bobcat, road runner,...More
