Red Rock National is a Desert course, intended to represent a course you might find in the desert outside Phoenix AZ. This course has a wide open feel as it winds around a canyon shaped by the harsh desert conditions. I have planned a variety of tee set ups for this course, and a pro tee version so check for different versions to suit your playing preference. The current set up features firm and fast conditions, with pins positioned on the tougher side. This should provide a good, fun test of golf for a wide range of skill levels.

From the opening hole the designer has made excellent use of elevation changes and lighting to create a great looking desert course.
The course is arguably missing any real 'signature holes' but overall there is a nice variety to the hole design and the course has a natural flow to it as it winds its way through the landscape. The sheer mention of firm greens will instantly put some people off but when used right, as is the case here, it remains the best way to ensure a course offers a decent challenge. Every single pin is accessible with a good shot but the greens, and the surrounding areas, are designed to punish any misjudgements in line or length.
For me this would be more than worthy of a place on tour.
