Comments

Malibu: The fairways were in rough condition overall, due to areas of dead grass, etc. The greens were okay. Shots hitting greens seemed to hold okay. Sand traps were in good condition. Updated April, 2017 Word was, that this course was in great shape. I would give it a fair mark. Greens and tees were in good shape. Overall, fairways were in ok shape. We were able to play our round in around 4 hours. We will give it another try in the future.

Bone: This course is conveniently located for a large part of the southeast valley population. It could be much better. The $48.00 dollars for green fees is about twice as much as one should pay. Adding sand to traps would really bump playability. Fairways and greens are sub-par (pun intended) and off-fairways are dirt or drainage areas. Western Skies has one of the best bar/restaurants due to the fact that it is open to the public as a watering hole. Lots of TV’s and cold beer. Staff is generally friendly. This is a local golf course but not one I would like to play again. Updated April, 2017

Stone: Sand traps are dirt. Course has a nice layout with tough par threes, but the condition of the course was not particularly good. The focus seems to be on the sports bar rather than the course. Pro shop charged different prices for different people in the same foursome, and refused to refund the overage to Steadfast. Updated April, 2017 They put sand in the traps, greens were nice. An okay course. The restaurant/bar appears to be the big draw. No real issues with the course, just not very interesting.

Steadfast: (Some things are better left unsaid) signed: Stone

Ralphy: Updated April, 2017 Very simple course with little character. Good for beginners and kids.
