  About the course 

This municipal facility opened its second eighteen hole course in the fall of 1998. The new Mountain View Course has a little less sand than the Firecliff Course, which opened during February, 1997. The Mountain View Course has several water hazards, including running streams, waterfalls and pools of water. Designed to look like dry creek beds, the waste areas work perfectly into the native dry desert theme.
The Mountain View Course takes advantage of the mountains as a stunning backdrop for each hole. Every hole is also outlined with a variety of native cactus, shrubs and trees that change colors with the seasons and provide a memorable setting. The fairways are large and generous, but they do tighten up some as you approach the small, undulating greens.

The Firecliff Course has an abundance of sand, even more than a typical desert course. There is also a fair amount of water hazards to test your shotmaking skills. The fairways are rolling and defined with a cut of rough, and the medium-sized greens are undulating. The nine hole rate during the week is available after 2 PM. City residents are discounted with an ID card.
