Comments

Stone: This course was formerly known as Estrella Mountain Ranch, see previous reviews. Apparently new ownership, good food in restaurant, and more grass on the fairways! Greens decent, still a confusing layout, but having more grass helps. Good walking course, lots of trees. More narrow than I remembered, and spent a fair amount of time in other people’s fairways. Nice views of the surrounding area from clubhouse, and just a pleasant place to play at a reasonable price.

Comments

Bone: The Rim is a very beautiful course to play. Each hole has its own wow factor and you can’t help pulling out the camera! It is the most picturesque course I have played in Arizona. The Rim offers 4 different tee lengths, which is important since the course requires some accuracy. Play the length one below your normal distance and the day will be more enjoyable. Fairways are in good shape and greens were fast and true, yet held good approaches. There are many sidehill/downhill/ uphill lies to deal with so bone up on your stances before you come to the Rim! This is a private course that is offering public play for the first time … so don’t miss your chance to play this gem.

Stone: Very unexpected. I knew it would be nice but it exceeded my expectations. Outstanding views of the Mogollon Rim from multiple holes. A little water, just enough, and a gigantic background boulder on a par 5 that is reachable in two. (Ask Bone). Very picture worthy. The fairways seemed narrow, but were not a genuine problem, and you could easily see where you wanted to go from the tee box. A very enjoyable round; highly recommended!
