The Adobe is the original course, built in 1929. It is a parkland-style layout and is considered the more player-friendly of the two golf courses. The par 71, 6,430-yard Adobe course treats its patrons to generous, sprawling fairways, while challenging them with numerous, hungry bunkers. Set against the backdrop of the picturesque Squaw Peak mountain range and the far-reaching southern skyline of downtown Phoenix, the Adobe provides views as breathtaking as the course itself.
The Links course is considered the more challenging and scenic of the two layouts. It sports rolling fairways, desert ravines and five lakes. Taking a cue from the seaside links courses of the British Isles, the bunkers are deep and set tight to greens. And from atop the 15th tee, one can see the skylines of Phoenix, Scottsdale and distant mountains. A combination of challenging desert golf mixed with cool pines and tranquil lakes, the Links is a bit rambunctious, providing both delights and demands for even the most seasoned player.
