i'm not sure why courses like this are part of the big rotation. looks silly compared to a maple hill, mciver, etc
Its just a different style of golf that rewards placement, distance, and disc landing angle.

For the two courses there really aren't that many mandos. There aren't any at Fountain Hills and only 3 at Vista

More Mandos at Vista than at Fountain. The only one at Fountain that I know of is hole #16.

You are right, dang I totally forgot about 16 at fountain...The mando really doesn't change most peoples throws, almost everyone hysers anyways. But there are still only the 3 at Vista I'm pretty sure.
