Not a recommended golf course for the good player. This course is not recommended for the good golfer that wants to experience the typical ejoyable Scottsdale golf. The grass in the center of the fairways is brown or missing in many spots and even where the grass is green, it's not a pretty green color. The food cart is unreliable and will stop service any time they feel there's not enough people on the course. The day I played the service stopped at 1:00 and I was on the 4th hole and the parking lot had many cars so it wasn't an empty course. The greens were very sandy with large pebbles making it difficult to keep a putt in line. I was in 4 sand traps and each was very wet making a sand shot difficult. Wet sand at 1:00 in AZ is rare due to the heat! There's no marshal service and calling the clubhouse for marshal support didn't help. The club house is very small and pathetic relative to the typical Scottsdale standards. The views on the course were not awe inspiring and actually were visually boreing. Recommend that the intermediate, or better, player select a different course to play while in Scottsdale as there are plenty to choose from and many are within the same price range or cheaper. The course is in sad shape! I would only play this course when the fee was $25 (incl cart), not a penny more!
Elevation changes and spectacular views make for a true adventure on this mountainside course..
Numerous highlights include the water-guarded par-5 10th hole. The 420-yard, par-4 starts its descent from high on Eagle Mountain, and in every way it is a wild and wonderful ride to the bottom, where the green sits guarded by nine bunkers--all in front--and a large body of water to the right. Still, everyone loves such an exceptional challenge, especially late in the day, when the sun turns rugged-looking Red Mountain into a fiery, scarlet monument in the background.
