Nestled in a small valley of the high desert, two hours north of Arizona's State Capital, lies scenic Rattlesnake Lake. This course combines some long par 5's with a few short par 4's, whether you're long off of the tee or a deadeye with a pitching wedge, this layout will give you many opportunities to catch a birdie. But watch out! If the bunkers don't get you, the unforgiving desert will!

Very interesting contrast , semi firm fairways/greens but medium slow greens. Means you end up having some longer putts that you have to hit harder. Took me by surprise. I think this course could be used in tournament play my only major concern is the firmness of the greens. You have several holes where you have a long second or first shot, into a green that is too small to handle the firmness. Having a pin near the front of the green with a long iron, you need 15-30 yards stoppage depending on the slope of the green. One way to counter this is to soften up the fairway so a person can play off the fairway first. Fun course all round, great use of the scenery. Beautiful course.
Hole 4 – Very nice fairway bunkers on approach shot.
Hole 5 – I love this hole, even the little landing area up top. J
Hole 6 – Love the bridge behind the green, very imaginative.
Hole 8 - This green seems a little unfair, especially with a tail wind. Hole is in front just past a huge hump and it is severely downhill after. Even with a lofted 3 iron, that hit 2 feet onto the green, I ended up 48 feet away down the hill. Fairly easy two putt, but this pin placement seems questionable. Might be good to reduce the slope some.
