The greens were ok, fairways fair, cart paths were goat trails, & carts were ancient.. Wouldn't pay even half of the $42 I paid for the round at this course.

waited on every shot, which caused the group behind us to wait also. nothing worse in golf than being rushed. doubt if i will play there again unless they are able to change the pace of play. overpriced for that situation. additionally, we didn't see the refreshment cart until the 10 hole.

I have played Cave Creek GC several times, for a local city course, it always seems to be in great shape. The fairways and greens are always very nice, nice pace on the putting surface. The layout is unique to say the least, there is a massive wash that runs through the middle of the course and provides a tough tee shot on several holes. Many hills and slopey fairways with difficult greens. The overall environment is somewhat rundown- No cart paths with potholes with unintentional speed bumps , I have personally been attacked by bees two separate times while playing(not really the courses fault). Maintenance could do a better job with clean ups on the course, but all in all its a course I would recommend playing at least once.

I liked the course, fairways and greens were in good shape. Had driving range, chipping and putting areas were nice. This could be a excellent golf course if 3 items were done. 1. Cart paths need improvement. 2. Washrooms should be built, sorry portables just do not cut-it. 3. The course should clean up the gully area that runs through the centre of the course. The area is filled with garbage (mattresses, tires, tarps and plain garbage). With the amount of golfers who play this course, the city of Phoenix should be ashamed to have a good course look like this.

Tee box, fairways and greens were in mostly very decent shape. Greens were extremely difficult for the average golfer as placement was always at an impossible angle. Fairways very close together so keep an eye out for lots of errant shots. Cart paths, if there were any, were terrible. Rocks, holes, debris and sometimes you didn't have a clue where you were going. The gas carts were awful as they were filthy and just about gave you whiplash when you started them. It was much further away than you think if you're coming from the south east area. Be prepared for a full 5 hour round.

Although the pace of play was slow, the 3 gents I was paired with made the day enjoyable. Ryan, Ryan, and Randy are golf caddies at TPC Stadium Course in Scottsdale and truly enjoy all that golf is about: fun, friendly, competitive enjoyment. I couldn't have asked for a better pairing for my long awaited return to Cave Creek Golf course that was the Menz Golf Group winter home for a long time. I will be back.

Fairways and greens in fantastic shape. Greens were fast ... usually without a straight putt! Tough greens but a fun challenge. Course was packed, but still finished in 4 1/2. Will play here whenever in town!!!

If you're looking to get 18 holes in under 5 hours this isn't the place. They placed my twosome in a cart with a old man who was walking. People from other holes were coming into our rough and taking our balls. People taking 3-4 shots off the tee. It was a big waste of money and time.

Played day after a big rain. Course in good condition considering. Greens were fast and well manicured. Fairways in good shape. Very busy, so play was slow. I only finished 16 holes with a 2:18 tee time.
