Positive- Course layout is nicely put together. Very wide open course. Almost difficult to hit out of bounds. Course length is nice and fairly long with close to 6800 from tips or 6400 from middle tees.

Negative- Greens were slow. I mean slow. The greens always appeared to be faster then they are every hole. Water jugs not available on course. Pace of play slow.

This used to be my favorite track I have played here for 20 years. However I won't be returning. My friends and I were excited to play a nice relaxing round of golf we were a little late getting off close to 7 am we let a twosome play through the group behind them played through us without asking after hitting in to us any shots that veered from the fairway rough was thick from recent rains and shots hard to find we ate lunch which was a 1/2 hour due to grill being slow we wrapped up at 11:30 now correct me if I am wrong but this young kid reminded us about pace of play it took us 4 hours for both nines minus 30 min lunch what you can't eat?don't play here unless you want to play sipped golf and get hit into and for heavens sake don't eat lunch lost a 20 year customer

I've played this course when the greens were in great shape, and I realize that during this time of the year, the greens struggle and have to be top-dressed and punched. However, these greens were without a doubt, the worst greens I've putted on this summer. I think it would be fair to the patrons of Golfnow and all courses who have greens in this shape, to include an alert in the tee-time look up page. The gentlemen I played with that day, were also of the same opinion, and were sorely disappointed as well. If I ever play this course again, I will not rely on Golfnow, and will contact the course directly to talk with the pro-shop for accurate course conditions.

First time on this course and I liked it. Summer in Phoenix and this course has lots of mature trees, that helps. Course conditions were good and pace of play was good as there was not many players out on course. Would definitely recommend and I will be playing course again.

First time on this course, the layout was good. I was concerned about errant shots flying into me since the fairways are adjacent to each other. Not an issue on my round. The greens were smooth and rolled true. No desert to get hung up in, grass encompasses the entire track. I will be back again.

My wife and I play at Toka Sticks at least once or twice a week all winter and spring. We love the pace of play and the better than average conditions of the tee boxes, fairways, and greens. The fairways are wide and you can recover from errant tee shots. There are four sets of tee boxes so any level of player will have fun. There are no forced carries and only a few holes with water, for the mid to low handicap player the water is not in play but for the very high handicap player, the water might be more visually intimidating than actually being in play. The greens are not overly large and are receptive on good approach shots. The greens roll nicely and can be tricky when the pin placements are on a slope. The sand in the bunkers can be hard but have improved over the past year. One notable hole is #9, a nice challenging par 5, not overly long but you have to hit three quality shots. Staying on the right side of the fairway is critical to be able to score on this hole! If you are on the left side, you will need to be able to draw the ball to get yourself in position to hit the green. The smallish green is protected on the left side by a long bunker and the right side has a severe slope, so it is imperative that you aim for the middle of the green. Don't get suckered into a left or right side pin placement because it might lead to one or two additional strokes. Other notable holes are #10 and #11, both are par 4's and appear to be simple and straightforward, don't let that fool you. The greens on both holes are two of the most difficult because of the slope on and around the green and of course the deep bunkering. It is easy to short side yourself or be above the pin which often leads to putts rolling off the green and now you might be chipping back to the pin and adding more strokes. The staff at Toka Sticks are probably some of the friendliest and accommodating. Outside staff, Michael and Deven are two of the most friendliest and skilled starters we've been fortunate to meet, they do a great job of greeting players, loading up bags, getting players out In a timely manner, and because they know the repeat players by name, they sometimes are able to negotiate with the groups to swap start times to allow for faster players to be the pacesetters. The grounds keepers do a great job of maintaining the course and are respective of the players and they always step aside or shutdown their equipment when players are hitting their shots. Inside staff, Mark and Fred are extremely friendly and always greets us with a smile. They always remember the repeat players and they get players checked in quickly and efficiently. Overall, Toka Sticks is an enjoyable course and one we love to play, the staff are friendly and make you feel appreciated, and rates are a great value.

Tee boxes and fairways were if really good shape. Greens were slightly faster than medium for AZ this time of year. Would love to see more of our winter visitors fix their ball marks. Service was excellent, as usual. Make sure to grab a brat at the grill at #10. Real solid track for the $$.

Good greens.

Good place to get your game in order since there is room for error. Just wish I coulda parred 18 to break 80.
