The staff gave me a bucket of balls to warm up at the range and they were very accommodating. The hot deal on golf now was not all that much of a savings as the prices are very reasonable.

The staff is always welcoming and helpful. The course is maintained fairly well. There was a lot of water on the course well past the time of over seeding, but the course itself is nice enough to still have an enjoyable time.

I have never been on such a pathetic course! Swampy over watered course. greens were terrible.

geese pooping all over putting green while green keeper telling us no chipping on green - had to laugh cause you couldnt putt with all the poop on greeen- unbelievable. You would be better off spending your money on a driving range at a quality course

Not completely sure why this course was open, the course itself was really green. It was in desperate need of a cut, the greens were more for chipping and were note even putable. After Hole #1, our putters never left the bags.

I know greens are in rough condition this time of year in Az. This was the very worst I have ever seen! The greens have grass that is 4 inches in length! The green would make a good rough ! The course should be closed for repair! Price was great but you could not call this a golf course!

My wife and I really enjoy this course because of the ease of play and friendly staff. We are never hurried and nine holes is just right for the wife. The course has golf instruction as well. This is great value for the money if you have an hour and half of time.

A fun nine hole course that has a straightforward layout and is great to take the kids to. The other golfers that play there are friendly and were happy to see kids playing golf, so no impatient groups were encountered.

A friend (who hadn't golfed in 3 yrs) and I went just for a stress free, quick round of swinging clubs and hitting balls. We had a great time! Of course we would have had a great time wherever we went. Wouldn't bother with a cart. They are slower than walking. Backed up at every hole (we didn't care). But ,hey, it is only $10. What do you expect. :-)

This was the second time Frank has turned us away. The first time I called and he said we have plenty of tee times. I show up with all the kids and a large group snatched up all the tee ties and carts for the day.

Now apparently they have a policy that a 17 year old cannot operate a golf cart. I am tired of this kid making up excuses not to let myself and my children on the course.

Even though this is a First Tee programming site Frank will not let you out on the course with your kids. Don't waste your time.
