Rolling Hills

3828 Yds, Par 62, Slope 93, by Gary Panks
Mr Science Reports:

an 18-hole executive course in Tempe. I liked most of the par 3's, which almost all had interesting elevation changes, and wind considerations, as they headed in all different directions. The par 4's were uninspired, except for #10, a 267-yard dogleg that could be reached by a big hitter going over the woods at the bottom of the hill. Having reached the area of the green, though there was the bunker and a slope down to the desert to deal with.

From the 13th tee, there was a very impressive 360 degree view that included the downtown Phoenix skyline, the Sky Harbor control tower, the White Tank mountains, the boulders of Papago Park, the "A" mountain and South Mountain.

There was a beverage cart (which was lacking at Coronado), and the greens were good, but overall course condition was unimpressive. The driving range was downright ugly, and you hit off mats. Good value, though, and a "3" overall.
