Hi Ellie,

Getting your newsflash has prompted me to say thank you so very much for a wonderful New year's Eve, I think I have to say it was the best ever. The food was delicious, the dj great, the staff fantastic. Please give my much belated thanks to everyone we really enjoyed this year and will definitely be up for next year.

See you at Easter.

My brother and I played here in early Feb.

Spectacular setting high up in the mountains and a true desert track. Miss the fairway and you're in the sand!

Quite challenging and perhaps not for beginners, it's a fairly tight and long course. Some long holes!

We had lunch in the club house afterwards and took an English breakfast each which was almost as spectacular as the course.

The course is in a wonderful quiet and serene area that adds to the enjoyment of playing.

The club house is a great place to while away an hour or two after your round.

Will definitely return!

Hello Nacho,
 
Please accept the sincere thanks of myself and my members for the very pleasant day we spent a Desert Springs yesterday.
 
Your help and attention made the day a most enjoyable event, for the 42 members who participated, and all have asked me to pass on their thanks.
 
Your staff there should be commended for the way in which they treat your clients, with a level of service and courtesy that are far too often lacking in these modern times. Nothing was too much trouble and all requests made by our members were greeted with a warm and friendly response.
 
I realise that one should not sort out individuals for praise, when the whole staff perform at a high standard, however, certain persons deserve a mention ie The young man in golf reception, Aiesha in the caddy masters office, Ellie and Michael in the restaurant and of course yourself.

Our society WILL return for more away days at Desert Springs be assured.
 
Thanks for making our visit so memorable.

Kind Regards,
Alan Sly

Thanks again Tania – we really did have a fantastic time and we are already planning next year.
