Escena Golf Club
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.

Played June 10, 2014, 7:15am....threesome, in a rapid 3 hours 45 minutes....excellent condition, not a bad lie on the grounds, greens receptive to short and long irons, tricky greens but fair. I will be back! This was a fun and fair test of golf. I would recommend it to anyone!! I would give it 5 stars if it had a driving range.

Caught on bad day
I think this course might have been really nice on another day but on this day, it was really poor. The staff was excellent but the course was in bad condition - the back nine was being aerated but there was no posting of that anywhere. In my local area, aerification is normally posted before you pay and play - not the case here. In addition, there were no rangers on the course and there was a 3some that teed off at 7AM (beginners and no clue) in front of us that played extremely slow and no one there to move them along. We had to skip a hole so we could move in front of them. It would have taken over 5 1/2 hours if we stayed behind them. Having said that, I just think it was a bad day and it probably is a nice course.

Great course. Fairways forgiving and greens run true which allows for a good score so long as you can hit the hole. Try Escana and you will walk away satisfied!

Encena is a beautiful course
Really enjoyed playing Encena, though the first hole was extremely windy, I feared the day would be a bust. But, the wind died down quickly and the remainder was very playable. Greens and fairways were green and in good repair. Several holes were challenging for me, but I hit onto several greens that were well guarded by water and/or sand. Overall a good day. I really enjoyed the course. Also paired up with a couple who were quite frendly and played well.
