Course was only a mediocre one. There were no amenities on the course, and the restaurant was shut down. There were water coolers, but the water was not very cold for a hot day on the course. The clubhouse staff were very short and Kurt with us, and clearly over their head In dealing with the public. I would not recommend this course, and the price was not worth the value. The only positive I can give this course is the views of the city.

Course was in great shape, as usual. The city of Phoenix cancelled their contract with the operators of Mulligan''s snack shop and as a result Mulligan's was locked up tight and there was no beverage cart on the course. Be forewarned before you play!

Nice long course. Perfect for long irons and fairway woods. Wide fairways and easy to find your ball on errant shots. Well maintained with smooth greens. Beautiful scenery of the city around the course.

We have been playing this course on our vacations for 3 years now. It was good value when the course was being maintained well, the café was open and the price was $37.00. It was not well maintained, the café was closed on a Sunday and the price was over $50.00 pp riding. We were recommending the course as an economical option between playing the nicer courses, but we will not be back.

Good course for the intermediate player, wide fairways and level greens. Played twice around the 4 hour mark with a noon tee off time. Try it I think you will like it!

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!
