My FAVORITE place to play by sashi d. at InsiderPages
My neighbor and I must play 30 rounds/year at this course. If I had a home course this would be it. Wide open fairways, a good variety of yardage on par 3s, and extremely friendly staff always gets me the best value for my dollar. A recent overhaul of the bunkers has given the course a cleaner look. It plays to a wide variety of skill levels and when the wind is swirling the course can really beat up your score card. I love this place. The par 5 7th hole screams go for it if you have the distance (260 with a 3 wood). The course brings water into play on some holes and there is plenty of wash areas for the erratic shot to land in. Make sure your game is on, but if it isn't you can still break 100 with relative ease. Western Skies' rates go really low in the summer time and you can sometimes play the 18 in under 3 hours. In the winter time rounds can take up to 5 if you are trying to finish before sundown.
