The golf course starts off strong. The first five holes are interesting and fun with an intimidating par-three at hole No. 5. The next five holes are rather average, but then it ramps up again on the back nine with some craziness before getting a...More

From the Clubhouse Staff to the Starter (who acted as a guest ambassador as well) this was a very enjoyable day. Priced a bit higher than other courses in the area but well worth the money.

We played here with total of three couples in March, 2017. It is quite a long drive out of Phoenix, especially Scottsdale where we were staying. But it is nice to get out of the city and see some real desert land. The course has...More

We continue to go back to this golf course every year for boys weekend. The course is in amazing shape and the staff were great. Dinosaur is more scenic than sidewinder. It's a little pricey but worth it.

When I seen the mats at the driving range I said oh oh and the check in staff was a little grumpy, but once we got into the course all concerns were gone. Beautiful course, fantastic views, sandwiches at the stop were great. Enjoy.

This is easily the most stunning and memorable course I've played. As the name suggests, it is carved out on a mountainside with significant elevation changes to add another degree to club selection. The picturesque holes are simply breathtaking. There are 5 tee with slope...More

Not really a "hotel". But very nice casitas. Great views and wildlife. Very nice spa with all spa services of a world class hotel. Great dining and bar.
