Amid the weather delay, and construction around the first tee box this course is getting better. Nice old school layout big trees and guarded greens, but still needs a warm up range. Very limited area with growth of the resort and new condos being built, but could really raise the value with a true driving range and better parking!!!

Not a bad course also not the best. Great price for an above average course although be weary of the mens league that plays in the am. They play fast and even though we were on an above average pace we had folks on are heels the whole time.

First time to San Marcos this year, with 3 other guys that hadn't ever been there. Everybody had a great time. Fairways are trimmed nicely and greens are moderately fast. A huge improvement over the course conditions from 2 years ago and before.

Definitely will come back.

And, a Little Marcos course has been added in the driving range space, where beginners can learn or more experienced can practice their short game. Prices so you pay once and can golf all day if you want to for Little Marcos.

The course has nice wide fairways so you can swing from the heels. Players weren't looking for lost balls so the pace of play was good. Nice relaxing round of golf.

The layout is average. The ground is hard and dry, and the greens do not hold. The ball rolls true and fast on the greens.

I didn't know that there was a golf course in downtown Chandler. The course isn't a desert layout -- so there are no "postcard" moments here. But the golf is good, and it's a very good value for this time of year (early April). As reported in other reviews, the green can be tricky, with lots of bunkers, but the fairways are wide open -- not nearly as close to houses as on may resort courses. A few marshy areas where sprinkler heads may have broken or something, and there's a canal that runs through several holes. Overall, very nice.

Though not an overly challenging course it is a pleasure to play. It was in great shape and reasonably priced. We teed off very early and it was like we had the course to ourselves.
