Comments

QuickBuck: What a surprise! Course was in midwinter condition. A combination of a desert, resort and tract home course. Houses get close on some holes then opens up to a good looking desert. Hole 12 is great. It has all the challenges built into one hole. It is a long drive but a great experience. In a few years the landscape will grow in and all the homes will be built. It will change, not sure for good or bad, so we will have to play it yearly.

Malibu: This is a beautiful course located in “No Mans Land”, ha ha. In far West Valley, way west of Phoenix. It is well worth the drive. It has a nice layout, with wide fairways and the greens are in nice shape. Sand traps were also in very good shape. Overall fun experience.

Stone: Like QuickBuck, for me it was a “surprise”, but actually it is west of Surprise, Arizona. I did not think that was possible, but after you drive what seemed like 10 miles down Bell Road on a four line divided highway seemingly headed to nowhere, there it is! Presently a Troon managed facility, and in excellent shape. An oasis in the desert known as Sun City Festival, a three and a half year old Del Webb/Pulte retirement community development. True desert views with nothing except Sun City Festival for miles. Much more interesting than Poston Butte, the East Valley counterpart, and really a fun course to play. Not the typical back and forth type of course you see in a lot of home development golf courses. Quite a bit of thought put into this course. If you live on the west side of town, it is a must play!
