Turquoise Valley Golf Course & RV Park -- Hidden Gem
Review by: Gary Bailey One of the best golf values I have seen. #1 hole is the worst hole on the course, with a ridiculous left to right sloping green that is impossible to hold. Make bogey here and you have a chance for a good round. After that, the architect did a good job of squeezing 8 holes into the available terrain. The real ambience of this course starts with #11, a long carry over a wash to a par 3. #10 is a drivable par 4 that could be improved a bit by narrowing the fairway to make it a bit more risky to go for the green. The rest of the back 9 is very well done, except for # 18, which is a pretty lame par 4. And then there is THE RATTLER, a very good par 6. Long hitters can get there in 3, setting up an eagle putt. But the 3rd is mostly carry over water. Overall one of the best courses I have played, especially for the money.

Rio Salado Golf Course -- Decent course, decent price
Review by: Craig This 9-hole course is a decent value, because the greens fee include a cart, and it good for 18 holes. If the fee was for 9 holes, no cart, it wouldn't be worth it. Rio Salado is an ok course, with wide, forgiving fairways. Just keep it on the fairway - the course is built around a wash (gully) and even if you can find your ball and play it from there, you just added 2-3 strokes to your score for that hole (unless you are a lot better than most of the golfers here, including me :) ). The biggest knock to this course are the large expanses of dead fairway grass. The greens are usually in decent shape though. The most challenging hole is the par-3 seventh. The tee and green are separated by a section, approximately 80 yards wide, of steep wash, and the base and sides of the wash are covered in stones. Large stones. If you hit a ball in here, just write it off. It's gone. That's not the only hazard, either. There are trees on each side of the wash - just to left-front of the green, hanging over the green, and in front of the teebox, a little to the side. And a bunker in front of the green. The clubhouse is ok. It is clean, with a small proshop and a snack bar that has irregular hours (it closes when the person running it decides business is too slow.) There is a large screen TV in the snack bar area, so you can sit down after a round and watch the pros show you how it is supposed to be done. The driving range is ok, though the tee area is too narrow for my taste; there is also a putting green and a chipping green, with a bunker to practice from, too. Overall, an excellent choice for beginners, with a little more length than many 9-hole courses.
