Zagat Survey (Scale of 0 to 30)


Overheated hookers "love when they bring icy towels for your neck in summer while you're playing" the Hilton's "target mountain" layout with "great views of the valley", and of your balls careening down into it; "bring lots of 'em" to cover your losses on a track that "has some interesting tricks", even though seasoned swingers call it "grossly overpriced"; non-golfers in the clan find the family resort's water park univerally exciting

Profile: This course's front nine is a traditional design with wide fairways and small greens. The back nine is a desert-style target course that was built on a hillside. There are five (two right and three left) dogleg fairways. The back nine has ponds that come into play on three holes. Hole #18, a 512-yard, par 5, has a level peninsula green with a sand bunker that comes into play on the back right. This resort is the site of the Arizona Classic and the PGA Tour's Skill Challenge.
