Better courses in the desert
Beautiful property. Everything is brand new in the clubhouse. Excellent taste for decoration. The front nine holes are in good shape except for the bunkers. The sand is full of rocks and debris. The back 9'holes were covered with brown spots , and there is nothing special about them. Staff is friendly. Good beverage cart. The marshall was controlling the pace quite often. We were a foursome and played in 4 hours. They don t have gps so bring your own. They dont give you cups, there is no ice machine, and considering today the temperature was 108 I believe they should accommodate to the location. I am not planning to return, as I expected a more challenging course There are better courses in the area. The price for the round was really cheap. We paid 30 USD for each one of us.

Had a great time
Took the wife and a buddy and his wife there they are beginners so we very slow let people play thru. The Marshall only told us we needed to speed up once.We had lunch at the lounge food and service was great.

A Somewhat Hidden Gem
I had been meaning to drive out the I-10 to visit Escena for some time. The fairways provide ample landing zones. The bunkering is thoughtful and not overwhelming. The greens were interesting and in superb condition. I would have liked to have seen a couple of shorter par threes. Course conditions are not a deal breaker for me so the few sparse spots on some of the fairways were not a bother---that's what the toe of the club is for anyway. Our threesome was behind a fivesome and we finished in 3:45, so no complaints there. Highly recommended.

going to be an awesome course when it grows up
this is a nice course, it had a few dry spots but considering we played Sept 5th it was expected. Course seems to be in a growth stage, some areas need to grow in and will make it a good challenge. No driving range, just nets, greens were great. Want to play it again maybe when it hasn't been so dry here.

Very playable Nicklaus course
Fantastic greens and my only criticism was the fact that some fairways had dead areas with no grass which us not typical for this course.

LONG CHALLENGING COUSE
Bunkers were challenging. Wide fairways, bunkers were strategically located to where the average player would have to think through the second and third shots. Beautiful scenery for playing, good weather, slow golf carts.

HOPE TO NEVER PLAY HERE AGAIN
We had an early tee time but they had to mow the greens. So we waited and waited on front. We get to the back and catch up with other groups. They started groups on #10. I guess managements remedy to a backed up front was to start groups on back; at the expense of those that got up early to get their round in. They could have at least kept the place of play up. Really nice.
There is a long entrance with walls on both side when you drive in. Rabbits get trapped in the entrance and can't get out. There is a good chance you'll have to dodge them. I'm guessing it's like that every morning. Cutting/building breaks in the fence would give the rabbits a place to escape.

Escena Golf Club
The staff at Escena are super friendly and very helpful. We played right after a downpour the night before, so, there were some new "water hazards" that aren't usually there. Other than that the conditions were better than I expected. Really enjoy this course and have gone back for the past several years when in the P.S. area.
