Of note: The Firecliff Course was intended to be the tougher course that could be a tournament course for Desert Willow, while the Mountain View Course was designed to be a little more member friendly.

Playing tip: It’s tempting to hit a lot of club on this long par-3 with a deep green. But if you go too far on the tee shot, you will find plenty of trouble behind the green and maybe even a lost ball.
