Course Review and Comments

Pros: excellent layout, one of the best (of many) I've played in Arizona. Really excellent condition- Troon Golf knows what they are doing. Very scenic. Greens very fast and very true.
Cons: Poorly trained staff. Example: starter told us course was wide open, but it was actually packed solid. Rangers failed to push slow groups- we were stuck behind a 5.5 hrs+ group of new golfers for most of the round. GPS on carts not set correctly- flags shown on the wrong part of the green, very difficult to find real yardages. Also, greens were set up unfairly, nearly every pin was on a slope or on the crown of a ridge- never seen the like.
Summary: this place has great potential if they get past the growing pains. The staff is very young and more or less clueless. If they can improve training (hire a mananger?) and fix the massive problem with the pin placements, this will be a top golf destination in Arizona.
