Comments

Malibu: This is a great course for the money. Fairways were in great shape and wide. Greens were also good, sand traps were okay. I look forward to future play here.

QuickBuck: Great resort course. No homes. Wild horses on the 12th fairway. Close to the new casino and hotel if you wanted to stay close. No negatives. Well maintained by Troon. They make you feel like they want your business. Life’s too short to play a course where you don’t feel welcome.

Stone: Wild horses, ground squirrels, and very large jack rabbits are to be found on the North course of Talking Stick. I like the South course better as it is more interesting, but the North course had wide fairways that were so well maintained they looked like your obsessive/compulsive brother-in-laws back yard. Very impressive, especially for summer time in Arizona when most of the courses are suffering from the heat. Most efficient cart person we have seen for a while, and the personnel generally were friendly. Good out of town vacation golf course choice for those golfers from somewhere else.
