The layout of the course features landing areas and greens separated by arroyos, native vegetation, and rock outcroppings. Each hole in the upscale course has five sets of tees allowing play from 5,702 to 7,562 yards, and many of the holes play downhill through ponderosa, pinon and juniper.

All holes feature spectacular high-desert and mountain views, strong golf-shot values and a serenity not often found anymore. We are thrilled to be one of the most award-winning public access courses ever to open in the U.S. We are even more thrilled when our visitors tell us their experience exceeded the hype
