    Played on Monday 11/07/16. Staff was friendly and accommodating, they got us right out on the first tee. Never played here before and will absolutely return. The course is the perfect combo of traditional (front 9) and desert (back 9). Challenging but fair in great condition. If anything the greens could have been a bit quicker. But I will give it 5 out of 5 stars for the value alone. We will play it again.
