Everything was great except the starter staff. Don’t really seem to care about you at all. I don’t think they understand that without us, the players, they wouldn’t have a job! I won’t go there again. Desert Willow is much nicer and the staff makes the day enjoyable. What’s even better is it’s just across the street!

Course visually beautiful. Unfortunately, we had to go around a honey golf foursome that had no idea about golf etiquette. Never saw a marshal and the beverage cart only once on a 90 degree day. Worst part, not a bit of sand in the many sand bunkers, just hard, gray mud. Very disappointing for a course associated with a world class hotel. This is high season in the desert, guys. Fix your course.

Great shape but very hilly with many steep slopes that often had the ball rolling into valleys, bunkers or water. The bunkers were in abundance. They were deep, with steep walls and very little sand.. A hand wedge might come in handy.

The course was well maintained, but there was very little margin for error, especially around the greens. Not your typical open desert course.

Staff were friendly and helpful .
