Just about "the best value in metro Phoenix" can be had at this "pretty" "sleeper" "in the West Valley" 25 minutes or so from downtown; the facility sports an Arthur Hills championship track and a Hale Irwin-designed executive layout, "both of which are worth playing", plus a lighted nine-hole par 3 course, making it one of Arizona's premier sites for junior and family golfing.

Profile: This facility offers two eighteen hole courses. The Palms Course is a links-style design with a desert landscape. There is one lake that comes into play on two holes. The fairways vary between being hilly and flat, and both the fairways and greens are well bunkered. The wind will usually come into play around February. The Lakes Course is known for having absolutely huge greens, averaging 35-40 yards in depth. Many of the greens slope away from the fairway and offer multiple pin placement opportunities. The fairways have generous landing areas on the Lakes Course, but also incorporate many grass bunkers and very deep sand bunkers into the design.
