My tee time was at 720 and they let me go early which was nice. The course was really straight forward. The Staff was friendly and informed me that the cart lady wouldn't be out which is good to know when walking. The pace of play was poor because there was a 4 some of ladies that wouldn't allow anyone to pass them. Other than that the course was pretty good and had only a few dead spots for the summer heat.

Not a bad course for $20 for 9 holes with cart. Only 2 drinking fountains and they were not cooled at all. Also kitchen is closed during summer so eat before you go. Alice Coopers trophy display is pretty cool though.

Course is in real good condition a natural transition to summer grass. Fairways are wide and greens run true. Somewhat easy layout great for walking. Play was a little slow at 4 hours considering I started out at 6:30 am. Usually the early morning players play faster. Staff at course and restaurant are very friendly even surprised me with a free hot dog meal with round.

Came out to AZ from Chicago for a wedding and had to play a round of golf on vacation. This course was perfect; very open and forgiving, greens were true to your stroke and had good breaks, sand was a little wet but that's ok because I wasn't in them, my brother was, and the view was amazing too. Definitely will play here again if I'm back in town.

Course is well suited for couples and/or seniors. The course is very forgiving, however it does have some lenght (particularly on the back nine) and water. The staff was extremely friendly and accomondating. We enjoyed playing this course - particluarly given the pace of play ( under 3 1/2 hours).

Our foursome was sent off the back nine first, which is a little longer than the front. The course appeared to be in great shape, and most fairways are wide and open, which would indicate the potential for a lower score, but you still have to get some distance out of your drives and second shot. Even the par 3's seemed a little longer than normal running from 136 to 199. But, it is very enjoyable and requires accurate shot placement, especially around the greens.

I would give it a 4 star overall except for he greens being sandy with putts running slow and a little bumpy. In another week, the greens should be in very good shape. The fairways were in very good shape. You can't beat this course in the summertime for the price. All staff are super friendly. A fun course for the average golfer. You won't be disappointed.

Old school course, reminds me of the muni courses I grew up on. Fairways and greens in great condition, especially for 110 degrees in the summer. Only saw a few burn spots. I didn't expect much but was pleasantly surprised and enjoyed my time. Played with a buddy and it was about a 2 hr and 45 min round.

This was not my first time playing this short, but tight track; and it certainly won't be my last. Always well kept, as this is closed to the public in the winter for members only, Apache Well G.C. winds through the old and new retirement community nicely, with challenging longer par 3s, and a little water and sand to keep it interesting. And for $10+ tax, on a weekend, it can't be beat! The greens were a little shaggy and we saw the beverage cart one time on number 5, but overall a good fun time in the East Valley. Enjoy!

My first time playing on the course's weekend double shot gun start at 8:00 am and 1:00 pm, and probably my last. The course was lush and green, but very flat, with little undulation on the greens and wide open fairways. However, the overall experience was disappointing.

I showed up at 7:30 am to find a 20 min. wait to pay with only 1 person working the desk for a full field shotgun! No surprise, the start was delayed. As the round proceeded, there were 2 and 3 group waits on every par 3. After a 5 hr. + round on a very short course, I went into the restaurant for a beer. I self served my first and when my larger group arrived, I order some food and another drink. The drink came right away, but 40 mins. after ordering most of our groups food had still not arrived and I left hungry at 2:30 pm.

I got a good rate because of our large group but I won't be back.
