Located on Arizona State University campus, this 18-hole championship golf course offers plenty of mounds and water, plus a good mixture of hole lengths and doglegs for a challenging game.

Great course, especially for ladies. Every shot is different and it keeps your attention all the way around. Great restaurant in the clubhouse and the service at the course is exceptional. It is a little bit pricey but worth the expense.
