This was the first time I played here. They were doing work on the fairways so some were a bit sandy. Even with that, it was still great. Plus, you can't beat the price. This is a 5 star resort at an affordable price. Every staff member there was polite and professional. I will definitely play here again and will recommend others to do the same.

Best in Valley
Again, the Classic desert course lives up to our memories! The best and friendliest Staff of all the 8 courses played on vacation, and the best food in the restaurant. Sure, the course will make you play on the fairway to avoid the 13/18 water holes, but there are 13/18 holes with water in the desert!! Unique to the Valley in many ways.

This course is great, it's a must play for any low handicap golfer. I played from the tips, and there were 4 or 5 par 4s over 450 yards with water next to the green. It was an awesome test. Don't play this course on a windy day. Also for playing they gave us a towel, divot tool, ball maker all with classic club logos. The towel alone goes for 15-25$

Very disappointing because of 1 person, the Superintendent. He was jumping in front of me and turning the water on before, or even while, I played the hole. It was the afternoon and I only saw one other golfer on the course. He was 2 or 3 holes ahead of me and no one was behind me. But the Superintendent would get between me and the other golfer and water! WHY NOT WAIT UNTIL I PLAYED THE HOLE AND THEN TURN THE WATER ON? NO ONE WAS BEHIND ME! Water(ing) was an issue on at least 4 holes on front.
As I headed to #10 the Superintendent drove in front of me and began soaking the 11th tee boxes. I couldn't even pull up to the 10th green because of the water. I went back to him and asked him "why don't you wait until I play the holes and then turn the water on?" Superintendent says, "Oh, ok. It won't be on anymore." The water was on on the next Tee Box!
I'm not sure what the % is but most golfers repair their ball marks, fill their divots, rake out the bunkers, don't drive past the No Carts signs, etc. Why then shouldn't we be treated with the same respect? When I started to think about this I packed up and left.
The layout of the course is awesome and the course was in fair condition. The rest of the staff were very great, helpful, and apologetic. They offered to refund my green fee.

Get the course and food Seperate!
Excellent course, I really love the classic club. Was behind a two some and infront of a single. I really took my time on every shot and on the green. Played the course in 2hrs40min.
I payed $79 thru the golf now deal and it gave m ea $15 food and beverage voucher.
I could have got the $59 tee time and used $20 towards food and beverage so that was a little upsetting.
I did get another Classic Club Micro Fiber towel which is great to bring to the green to clean your ball.

I Was Disappointed - Again...
The last time I played and reviewed this course, I gave it 4-stars. My main issue with the course at that time were the rock-hard sand traps and "iffy" fairways. Well, the fairways were a bit better, but the sand traps are still rock-hard, and now the greens are rock-hard too! Only 9-irons and wedges held the greens at all. All lower lofted shots landing on the greens first took a 15-20 foot BOUNCE, and then ran off the back of the green (with draw or fade). O.K., time to play a little links-style golf - right? Not possible! The green complexes had hundreds of pounds of sand on the green aprons! So, shots landing on the greens would not hold, and shots landing short would not release! My first round at the CC the greens were absolutely horrible. My second round the greens were better, but I experienced the rock-hard sand traps, and the fairways were average at best (areas under repair - and very hard and dry). This time the green complexes were almost unplayable. The only comment from the staff on my issue with the greens was, "you should play this course during the season". So, the only time the conditions of this course are nice is when you have to pay $125+ to play it??? This should be a 5-star course. But, I have not seen course conditions even close to 5-stars.

Better be on your game...plenty of bunkers & water but a beautifully groomed course. Greens are fair & true to putt on.
