Comments

MyTi: The holes have a tendency to look alike even though the doglegs go both ways. It’s nice to play some elevation changes in Arizona. Pretty fun course which can play fairly easy if conditions are good.

Malibu: This course is a great course for the money. Fairways were in nice shape, few trees to contend with. Greens were also good. Sand traps had sand in them. Overall fun experience.

QuickBuck: Great course with no homes. Very challenging in the wind. They take good care of the areas outside the rough. Surrounded by mountains so the greens are hard to read. Some putts go up hill. Support this club any time you can because they have a junior program called the Futures Course. Among other youth benefits, juniors up to 17 years old can play for free at the present time.

Stone: Interesting course with multiple elevation changes. I must have been in different sand traps than Malibu, because mine had hard packed dirt underneath a sand covering. Maybe I should avoid sand traps. Great junior program, with a short course next door in good shape with lots of clinics and junior tournaments we are told. One of the busier courses we have seen mid week, with club maker representatives and recreational tournaments in progress. The prices always seem to be fair at this course, probably because it is a bit of a drive. A very good value combined with a course that is different in many ways from all the rest. Try it – you might like it!
