This was our 3rd time at the Resorter this week. The course was empty and well maintained. If you are there early they let you play early. My only complaint is that we tried to eat breakfast there twice and both times left hungry. On Tuesday our tee off time was 7:50 and they said no breakfast until 8:00. There are signs etc that also say 8:00 -so our mistake. Then Monday we tried again at 8:30 and they said sorry no food until 11:00. The 4 of us had to leave and go to a fast food place. It even says breakfast 8 to 11 on a sign in their golf carts. Other than that we enjoyed the course

I was a little reluctant to play after reading a few reviews but was pleasantly surprised, yes the course is just a little dry but what a fantastic layout... with a little water and detail maintenance this could be a fantastic course, I play golf in the area when I come to town a few times a year and will look forward to playing here again

Had not played here in 10 years, was working in Desert and passed by saw it was priced fairly cheap on my cell...had time to kill, so went to play....No thanks, course was not very good 10 years ago and was even worse now...played fast...then looked course up and found it for sale.....poor people that think they live in a Country Club, fairly sure no one will buy and fix this one back up......

The four of us played here yesterday while visiting the desert for a birthday party. Course was very dry, brown, needs help. Ice machine was not working, so had to go to clubhouse to fill cooler for the cart. Pace of play was fast since no one else was on the course. Can understand why!

Would not play here again.

Sad shape for a ‘country club’ course. Doesn’t matter the price....golf should be on a clean course where one can enjoy the outdoors. This has dried up water holes, fields of tumbleweed, etc. sad sad sad

Extremely long even from the front first and second tees. All greens are elevated and protected by bunkders. You have to have your game to score good. Couple of the holes were very uhique that

are not found in other courses. I will return and play again.

Pleasing course for late afternoon round. Conditions were good if you hit it where you are supposed to, but get a little off line and the aesthetics get a bit weedier and unkempt. Overall good value for the afternoon price.

Arrived 30 mins early, pro shop gal could have said “Oh, we had a shot gun start tourney today, might be a bit backed up. Didn’t get a cart till 20 mins after tee time. The two teenage starters began to let locals with their own carts go out randomly before us until I called BS! Will never go back to such an amature operation again. Apparently, the course ownership and the community are in an ongoing legal battle so avoid this place like the plague!!

A really bad day that started with our arrival. They were short of carts resulting in us teeing of 30mins late., It appeared that they were putting groups out too quickly. After 9 holes that took 2 1/2 hours we quit. Conditions of the course were fair at best. Greens were quite slow. Not sure when they were cut last. We have played this course in the past and it was in much better shape. We won't be going back anytime soon.

Played on Friday and when we arrived for our 1:30 tee time the parking lot was quite busy.

Checked in with the golf staff and they informed us that it was one of the busiest days of the year. Staff was great as the put us in line for a golf cart and they even had a table set up offering complimentary refreshments for the slight delay.

Once we got on the course we found it to be in great condition and we even finished in enough time to enjoy their live entertainment in the bar.
