A place that you just have to have played

The overall ambience of the resort is very inviting, the houses, the cacti and the desert-like layout of the course make an exclusive impression.
As a user of a very nice apartment, we pay € 30 per lap. Price / performance great! The fairways are in top condition, the tees very well maintained, you only have to get used to the color-coded cactus markings. The greens are in good condition. The waymarking ok.
In the end 5 stars for the entire package and with our tariff an excellent price / performance ratio.
Finally to the very good restaurant.

It remains a somewhat ambiguous impression...

No question - the ambience of the resort is altogether inviting, the houses, the cactus, the desert-like layout of the place complete the whole coherent.
However, if I had to pay for the place the regular green fee (currently € 115, -) (which we have not done thanks to the "Cactus Combo"), the place would not really worth it. Partly very barren spots on the fairways, the tees not marked in color, a par 4 shortened to par 3. But the greens were in good condition.
At the end but then 4 stars for the total package and our rate also good price / performance ratio.

EIn beautiful place that has everything you expected from the Gulf!

We are of 160 km traveled without calling first. No problem! Hatten within 1 hour a tee time and in the high season! Even the entrance to the golf club to the top is an experience. By orange groves it goes up Once there the middle of nowhere ;-), fringe many houses in the style of Indiana, the streets and the Fairway`s. The staff is very friendly, the clubhouse Extra vagant! Desert Spring called not in vain "Luxury Golf Resort". The fairways and greens were in great condition. I will certainly take back all the way to me. Because it was worth 100%.

Dream place - full recommendation

Played end 01/2016, the whole area is gorgeous, 1a condition, all very friendly, in fact little was happening on the pitch, space is not tight, but the ball then lands often in the desert greens very demanding, one of the best of 200 places that I've played, EUR 60 and under,

What strikes one first,

Is the enormous "sense of detail". Here someone has thought of everything and think 13 years after opening still on it. This is quite extraordinary when you just know the usual neglect degree of surrounding areas. This is ensured by (presumably only for the integrated residential complex), the "Committee for the wellbeeing". We know how much pressure Welfare Committee can exercise. But you do not live there, yes.
There, on the other hand play is great fun and a relatively good conscience, for the irrigation effort focuses on the right places with large waste areas, here called "hardpan" in between. Real Rough does not exist. Nevertheless, or exactly why the idea of ​​a green oasis created. The selected grasses offer in spring (we were there in early March 2015 as) a pleasing impression.
The place itself is not ultra hard, but playing picturesque and always interesting. Amazingly, only 1 hole and hole 14 are still clearly remembered me. Lane 1 because of the tight appearing peripheral development of expensive villas in Tex-Mex style was then quite easy to deal with. Lane 14, a par 3 because of the (plastic) shark-infested water hazard "Tiburon" in incredible turquoise.
Finally, a word to Associates: All, without exception, very customer oriented. That makes a little nervous, but satisfy the models in the USA.

Fantastic place in Arizona Style

You really believes himself transferred to Arizona when you go through this wonderful place. Fairways and beside stone desert, vast amounts of cacti, dry river Läufte besides very beautiful ponds. Now in February bloom many flowers.
The houses look like in the southern U.S. and Mexico. A bit like a Disney golf course.
Course condition was 1A!

These very nice and English speaking staff!

This place must have definitely played once!

Top, top, top

Fantastic place that can compete with the best. Have played him in January 2013. Fairways and greens are in hervorragedem state. Ponds are crystal clear and full of trout and a dolphin
:-)
Club staff is super friendly and very helpful. One had forgotten his shoes and it was what worried on loan.
The changing wind and the narrow fairways require good course management. All about HCP 20 Solten to have a chance of playing green. Absolute must! Will definitely come back.

At its best!

Do you have to have played. Perfectly integrated into the desert landscape course with varied mostly narrow fairways, perfect greens and a maintenance condition that is hard to beat. A place of superlatives.

Close to pefection

What can I say? Could hardly be better, certainly one of the top 100 courses in Europe: Super club house, very warm welcome, a place out of a picture book that looks as if the lawn edges are cut with nail scissors.. Each hole worth a photo. The place is not Anfägergeeignet but are also found in the abundant desert almost every ball back. If you can then play it, is another question. The place is almost flat and the connection paths are usually short so a buggy is not essential. Par 71: There's Gold (5978m) Yellow (5526m) and green (4971m) which is reasonable discounts because as the individual daily form is considered better and men do not have to be ashamed to play by green if the length is missing. Who here does not enjoy is your own fault. A MUST in this area! (The 17 may be a Challenging par 4, but was reported as a par 3 with 126m of yellow because it is the only hole, seen bilaterally from the tee at the par 4 150m long row houses are). Has probably given too much collateral damage. Otherwise, the occasional edge development raises on the first 3 holes and the last two the look, the other 13 holes are in free desert with a beautiful view of the surrounding mountains. Always gladly again!
