QuickBuck: Play this course, we played the Peaks course. Can’t wait to play the Ranch course. You won’t remember the drive there because the quality of everything is Top 10. You won’t remember your drive home because you will be thinking about the course that is managed by professionals that want you to have a great experience. I am not a fan of shotgun starts because they play slow. No big deal on this course. You don’t want to rush through, you will miss all the little details that are an important part of this Sonoran Desert setting.

Malibu: Located about an hours drive north of Phoenix, it is well worth the drive. This course is in prime condition. Fairways, greens and sand traps all in great shape. Accurate tee shots are needed to stay out of desert trouble. Greens were fast and difficult to read. Sand traps had ample sand in them. Overall very enjoyable experience.

Stone: Best conditioned course we played this winter. I believe usually private, but opened up for occasional public play. Typical desert course, nothing especially good, nothing bad. Just a good, solid desert course in excellent condition. Long drive, but worth trying at least once.
