Course is in impeccable shape. Management knows how to satisfy their customers. There was a mix up on the #10 tee box, but Chris Treat handled it in a professional manner, defusing any animosity. A must play.

Very nice old school, tree lined course. Greens were rolling great and putting was smooth. Gud help you if you got into a bunker though. They were hard as a rock and even had a muddy layer under the surface.

Dont waste your time here. Staff made us play as a 4- some with no one on course. Claimed it was policy. What a joke. I was a golf professional for 12 years and when i heard that i about flipped a lid. When we got away from clubhouse we split into two somes since there was absolutely no one on course that afternoon. Course was in pretty shabby condition. This place used to be nice but is now poorly taken care of. Greens were in good shape though. Only thing good here.

Moon Valley is a gem of a golf course. The staff in the pro shop could not be nicer. The practice range had as many balls as you wanted an this was included in the greens fee. The real story is the beautiful and FAST greens that awaited you at the end of each hole. With a posted 10.8 notice in the pro shop they lived up to the speed and often exceeded it. Also the speed was true so accuracy was at a premium.

The course was full and the round took 5 hours but it was worth every minute of it. We had multiple interactions with the cart person and she was ALWAYS polite and nice. She even stayed late that day because so many people were still on the course. I would recommend that everyone try this course and consider a membership at Moon Valley.

Visiting Moon Valley will likely become an annual event for our foursome until they stop allowing the public. Course conditions were excellent and the greens were quick and true. Unfortunately we had no trouble finding the strategically placed bunkers ! Moon Valley is a reasonable challenge without being punishing. Try it - you'll like it.

This is a nice track that is walkable. An X LPGA course. In great shape except they have so non native grass on the greens. They have treated the greens, so it should get better. Very friendly staff and they let me know about conditions up front.<br/> Tom

Course in good condition, over seeding went well. Greens were not over seeded, still putted very well. Greens seemed dead with dye sprayed on. Guy in pro shop turned up nose when he realized I was Golf Now hot deal. Made us wait till tee time even though no one was there. Courses may not like Golf Now for various reasons, but don't take it out on customer. I won't be back.

My theory is if they need the business from Golfnow they need to treat the people who get to them thru Golfnow as they do any other customer. I have had a few places act that way, but they quickly get an earful from me and we move on. LOL And like you, I usually never return, well unless the deal is irresistible.

Staff was very accommodating and the course was in great condition. It was a little cool but the club couldn't be responsible for that. The price was good for the high season in Phoenix. The only thing lacking was a cart girl for refreshments out on the course, but it was a Monday, and I don't know if they have one on busier times. This was my first time playing this course and I plan on playing it quite a bit more.

My wife and I played with another couple who are friends and we thoroughly enjoyed our experience at Moon Valley. The only negative on the day was most of the sand trips require sand! Not fun playing out of desert sand and gravel from the bunker.

After our round we stayed for a drink and some food and had a very positive experience with our waiter Sean as well as the quality and pricing of our purchases.

The course shows signs of care and of no care. If you do not look beyond the fairways, the course could be considered quite nice. Contour the edges and lay down decorative gravel where you do not play. As is, it is not a great course. My friends said that it is not beyond a $60 dollar course. It could be great if the whole course showed much care.

The Pro Shop staff were very welcoming to non-Members. The practice facility is quite nice. 'The course was in very good overall condition, and the greens were excellent...firm, fast and true. The only minor complaint was that the bunkers had very little sand on top of the firm base...use a low-bounce sand wedge if you play here.

This was my first time playing this old school private Country Club. They allow limited outside play and since this course was on my golf bucket list I jumped at the opportunity. Great practice facilities with a couple of putting greens by number 1 & 10. The course layout has scenic views with mature trees lining the fairways and water on several holes. They were still in over-seed (cart paths only) so the ruff was up and the fairways were a little shaggy, slowing our play, yet we still finished in under 4 hours. The greens looked dry and less green than the surrounding grass but they were quick and challenging. Make sure to bring a range finder/GPS as the course was poorly marked with practically no yardage markers marked found on the fairways or cart paths. Bunkers were firm and mostly dirt. Pro Shop staff was friendly and treated non-members courteously and professionally. The Club House was surprisingly nice inside with a decent bar. The restaurant provided an average lunch menu, but found the food to be nothing special. I will definitely play this course again if the opportunity present's itself again.

The greens were too dry, and fairways poorly kept. We paid $65 to play 18 holes at 102 F. We expected the course to be in goodplayable condition. In the pre re-seeding period, the course should be honest to charge fair value for the conditions. We felt ripped off.
