This club has two regulation eighteen hole courses that provide outstanding views of the adjacent mountains. Both courses are well manicured, and the Mountain Course has been planted with beautiful flowers. The terrain on both courses varies, as their names imply. The Mountain Course is heavily bunkered. This course is well known because the Senior PGA Tour's Vintage Tournament had been held here for a number of years. The signature hole on the Mountain Course is #16, a 402-yard, par 4, requiring a tee shot over water to a dogleg right fairway, then an approach shot to a small green. This is a particularly beautiful hole because there are many flowers and mountain views to enjoy. "Golf Digest" rated the Mountain Course as the 15th "Best in State" course for 1995-96 and 14th for 1997-98. The Desert Course is a links-style design where most of the rough is composed of natural desert vegetation. The course has several large sand bunkers, mostly with high overhanging lips. Several of the undulating greens are double and triple-tiered. Even though hole #16, a par 3, measures only 147 yards from the back tee, it can be intimidating because it requires a tee shot over water that will drop fifty feet to the green. Another difficult par 3 is hole #5, measuring 209 yards from the back tees and also requiring a tee shot over water. However, there is room on the right to bail out if you can't make the distance. "Golf Digest" rated this as the 29th "Best in State" course for 1995-96. You must use a caddie if you choose to walk these courses.
