Huukan Golf Club
dirt in the desert
It needs money put into it. It has potential but as it is now it is not worth it.
$20 for it would be an appropriate price with the condition the coarse is in.
Bare fairways and unkempt greens.

We played this course last winter and it was in very rough condition. We understood that it had been closed and was purchased by the Tribe and they were bringing it back. They're coming up short. The ground appeared damp so I assume there isn't a problem with water. The fairways and rough were in really bad shape! I believe that if they were to give anyone access to a few hundred pounds of grass seed that they would have more success bringing this course back to a more playable condition than whatever they've been doing for the past year. There are too many courses in the area that are much better than Huukan, spend your money on those. On the other hand the staff was wonderful. We interacted with the proshop, starter, and bar and they were all as helpful and welcoming as could be.

Huukan was alright. It was a normal city course. Not very challenging but a good course to go out and get a little practice.

Couse on the Rebulld
Course has had several owners the past few years. Currently owners seem committed to improving it. I played 18 holes and it was fine. It met my expectations, which were low since I only paid $29 including cart and GPS. Greens were good, fairway were fine if you landed in the grass and the rough was non-existent.
I'll give the course another try when I'm back in that area.

Winter golf not as good as other places
Quick Tip: Remember this is Arizona in the Winter and they are on Standard Time always. Coming from California or Nevada, the time changes to an hour later. When you book your tee time through Golf Now, they just give you a tee time. Check to make sure you have the correct time from Laughlin, NV. When you cross the Colorado River into Arizona, the time changes. We thought we had plenty of time showing up at 9:30 on our clocks for a 10:27 tee time and found out we were late!
The staff was great and greeted us wonderfully (snickered about the time thing) and got us on the course right away. Had a twosome going out and put us with them. Nice folks from Minnesota.
About the course. Has been great, working to be great again. Will be a while. Needs a lot of TLC. Greens ran true but slow, the grass was a little thin. Fairways tight but grass coming back, rough patchy and tight. Rough grass dormant.

this course has friendly staff
Very nice people, and overall condition is very nice, except for all the dogs in the homes around the course barking all the time!

Course has great possibilities
We understand that this course has just reopened. The fairways do need some help but we played 18 holes in January on a day when the wind was blowing continually and it was at 40mph at times. The fairways will come around in the spring. As we were traveling we needed to play it on the day we had reserved so conditions were not favorable. The wind and narrow fairways made it difficult for hitting many fairways for long-ball hitters. The staff was excellent and friendly...could not have been more welcoming.

Course has improved a lot since the tribe took it over, however their are still lots of bald spots that need to fill in before it will be a nice course again.
