Normally this course is in decent condition. This issue this time is it didn't look like it had been mowed in at least 7-10 days so the greens were horribly slow and the fairways had tall seedlings. Normally this time of year the courses are in great shape or in the process of being overseeded. This course was neither.

The course provided no surprises and we got what we paid for. Fairways were firm with generous amount of dormant grass areas typical for October golf in the Valley. The greens were recently aerated making them playable but somewhat consistent. In the "in between (normal and over-seed) season, "The Creek" provides locals and visitors an affordable golfing experience.

This experience was disappointing. The staff considered "Golf Now" customers as second class citizens; making us wait for locals and then putting singles in front of our foursome. Not the best experience. The course wasn't in very good condition and the pace of play was dismal. They need to work on their manaqement skills.

It is not a picturesque (except for the par 3 signature hole) course and is flat and visually boring. But there are some forced carry holes which are a bit challenging. The greens were a bit slow. The fairways were ok but thinning. It is a good value and reminds me of a desert based Encanto course. If your expectations are just a good venue to practice your game, it is a good value. If you are looking for exciting holes like AZ Grand or Wickenburg ... then you may be disappointed.

I found this course to be in terrible condition.

Water holes had no water

fairways neglected

greens slow and bumpy

distance from tee to fairway (gravel in between) way too long for average golfer

cart paths weather worn and rough

I played this course back in July and the fairways were not in good condition. Amazing what a little rain can do! This time fairways were full of grass and the greens were Excellent as before at my first visit! The greens here are awesome! My hat is off to the superintendent and his crew for the transformation.

The golf shop staff is friendly as well as the outside staff. Course is a good test if you select the right tees to play from. Overall this is a great value for summer golf and I can't wait to see it after overseeding! Will definitely play again.

It's been awhile since I last played Apache Creek; some subtle changes, like a 460 yrd par 4! In fact, the course is a lot longer than I remembered from the last time I played from the tips. Course is fair from the black tees! Missing some of the water features, but that is to be expected in the middle of summer.

Play soon! AC is getting ready to punch/overseed in the next week or so!

Greens were running 8-9!

Course is a fun play!

Apache Creek is wide open and a very easy course to score on, however it has a championship course feel to it. The course is in great condition and plays long with well placed bunkers. There are a few water holes too. An all around great course to build confidence in your game and get a fast paced round in for a great price!
