If you're a golfer, as the name implies, this resort is on a golf course.
This resort is on the south end of Phoenix, not far from I-10, making a good place to stay if planning day trips to Tucson or for visiting places in Mesa, Tempe, & Chandler, Arizona.
Best Things About the Resort:The timeshare was very picturesque, set on a golf course, with a nice view of one of the golf fairways from our unit.
The unit was clean and well maintained.
Resort Experience:We had what they define as a 2 Bedroom unit but it was actually a 1 Bedroom Unit and a Studio Unit with a connecting door.
The 1 Bedroom Unit was spacious, well lit, both from lights provided plus plenty of windows in the living/dining area that gave great light during the day. After dark, while not real bright, the light was satisfactory for reading and doing handwork such as cross stitch and needlepoint.
The 1 bedroom unit had a very nice size and reasonably well stocked kitchen area. The bedroom was nice size with a nice king size bed. However, the pillows provided were lousy. They felt like polyester pillows that had been around for so long that the polyester had crumbled and gave absolutely no support unless you knew how to wedge them into a pillowcase which you had to tightly wrap around them to make them into something of a pillow with support. The maid staff knew how to do this, so it took a day or two of use to loosen up what they did and discover you had no pillow support.
There were no extra pillows or bedding of any kind to use if you wanted to use the sofa sleeper.
They did a mid week cleaning and linen exchange, which was nice.
The studio unit was only good for one thing. Sleeping. It was so dark after dark, that you could not read or do anything other than watch TV. We would have been totally unhappy if we had exchanged into the studio unit only. So, beware if you plan on exchanging into this resort.
Another negative. The conceirge called us everyday trying to get us to take a sales tour of the resort even after we made it very plain to her that we had absolutely no interest in participating in such a tour the first time we talked to her.
Then, there was the mid week cleaning. It was nice to have except the maid was knocking on the door at 7:15 in the morning to do the cleaning.
Also, there was the key problem with the unit. The keys they gave us when we checked in didn't work. Fortunately, the clerk who checked us in realized he had done something wrong and was there almost as quick as we discovered they didn't work with ones that did. However, the next day, after being out all day, we came back and found the keys didn't work again and this time we had to go to the reception area to get new keys. Got no explanation or apology for this.
Parking at our building was a real problem as the building we were in shared the parking lot for the golf course so it was hard to find parking when you came back in the middle of the day. Also, the units open onto an inside courtyard and so you had a long walk to carry your luggage and stuff from your car and then back when you left.
The 1 bedroom unit had a full size washer and dryer in it along with an iron and ironing board which made getting laundry done on the trip real handy. The studio unit had a small washer and dryer along with an iron and ironing board so unless you had a huge amount of laundry to do, would also have worked fine.
This resort is rated a Gold Crown Resort but it definitely has some problems.

The unit itself was done in a townhouse style. We had a two-bedroom, two-bath unit on the top floor. The unit itself was very spacious, with a large kitchen/living room, master bedroom, and a second bedroom lockout unit. There were plenty of cabinets and closet space for our needs and a washer/dryer in the unit. The decor was elegant, yet comfortable. Our balcony overlooked the golf course, and the view in the morning was breathtaking and serene.
The master bedroom had a Jacuzzi - the kids were in awe. The second bedroom was quite spacious for the two kids, and they enjoyed having their own quarters. They had a small kitchenette, a queen-size bed, a pull-out sofa, and a bathroom.
