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.

Phantom Horse Golf Club -- Varied, interesting course
Review by: Craig Played this course as part of a company outing on Saturday. The fairways were covered in dead grass, but the course was to be closed on Monday for a month of overseeding, so I will cut some slack on that. The greens were in good shape, however, albeit a little fast. The front nine is resort style. My only complaint was the fact that it winds through a housing development and sometimes the journey to the next tee box was a little long. The back nine is desert style and very scenic. None of the holes are exceptionally difficult, but none of them are easy, either. Many of the holes have doglegs and the straight ones have well-placed bunkers or difficult pin placements. There is a driving range and practice green, but while they are adequate, the layout says "resort focus" not "golf focus". Overall, this is a good course, that would be even better once winter grass is in. It is not a bargain (it *is* a resort) but if you are looking for a pleasant experience and resort golf is in your price range, a visit to Phantom Horse is worthwhile.
