Malibu: Overall condition is nice, greens were hard to read but fair. Fairways were in nice shape. Sand traps are needing T.L.C. (Sand). Overall fun experience.

QuickBuck: Course was in good shape for mid June. One of my favorite courses. The only negative was the sand bunkers, no sand, like playing hard pan. Good looking course. Play it anytime.

MyTi: Nice course. Playable and very fair. The bunkers were horrible. A shame for this nice of a course. Greens can have some unexpected breaks due to South Mountain.

Stone: A great course. Bark chip rough is long gone, and we were happy to see “Doc’s Tree”. Amenities, beverage cart, pro shop and personnel excellent. Very nice fairways, greens, rough, and the practice facilities are outstanding along with a golf school. Only negative about this course is the sand traps, which were really not sand traps at all but rock quarries. Puzzling, given the rest of the course was superior. Be sure to play it – one of the best courses in the valley (but put some sand in the traps!)
