Tee shots must carry over a patch of desert to the fairway, but then the irrigated turf usually extends all the way to the putting surface.

Usually players find wayward balls and can play recovery shots. Wind also is often a factor (especially in the afternoon) on this very flat, exposed layout. Apache Creek Golf Club boasts a nice mix of holes. Water, in the form of a creek and a couple of small lakes, comes into play on several holes.
