Decent city course but not very challenging. Greens we're in great shape as we're the fairways. The rough was easy to get out of. The bunker sand was pretty terrible. Closer to hard packed fine gravel than sand.

Have not played here in two years. Was pleasantly surprised to find the fairways and greens in such great shape. Pace of play was spectacular as we teed off at 8:00am and was finished by 11:30 while playing as a foursome. Great day!

Had the first tee time of the day at this municipal course, but our twosome was put off second by the unfriendly pro shop cashier so locals could get off before us. This bumped our tee off 15 minutes. Fortunately, the first group let us play through on #3. Greens and fairways in excellent shape, but the rest of the course was average. Long par 4s posed challenges, but no stand-out holes. For the $49 we paid, our money would have been better spent elsewhere and our patronage appreciated.

We played this course on advice of some people we were paired up with at a different course. It's a municipal course close to downtown Phoenix, and abutting a kiddie part. The fairways wet very nice and the greens just a green and pristine as any higher end golf course. The layout was nice, not your typical up and down muni course . Except for the nonstop takin horn toots from the kiddie park next door, it was a serene little course.

The course has a great layout and has challenging holes with bunkers and water getting in the way on occasion. Has quite a few dog-legs to make it interesting and a very good price for a Friday.

The day before, we booked three foursomes, as we were in town for a family event. Staff was totally accommodating, and helped us out with club rentals for those that did not have clubs.

Course was just what we needed.

Sand traps were packed hard, but it had rained.

Otherwise, we enjoyed our rounds!!

The best thing about the course was the greens. They were in great shape and good size. The course is FLAT with a few trees and a little water. Good course for beginners and those not worried about scenery.

The course is a little.rough around the edges. Greens and fairways were in good shape. The layout was a little boring but easy to navigate. The group behind us were a bit rude and complained about us playing slow but our foursome played in 3 hr 40 minutes.
