Was very happy with everything! Practice areas were excellent, restaurant was a good value and quality food. Was concerned about the pace of play and sand condition based on reviews I read. I found both to be average for this time of year. Really enjoyed the round and will definitely add this course to my Phoenix rotation!

The green side traps lack the proper amount of sand to execute a sucessful blast. Overseeing is complete so it is time to cut the rough.

I would recommend this course to others for the value and condition of the course but I would warn them about slow play I’ve played this course several times and that’s been my one complaint every time I played last Sunday and quit after nine holes and 2 1/2 hours never saw a Ranger once

Hello,

Thank you for the feedback and playing our golf course. We were hosting the final round of a City of Phx golf tournament that morning. We did struggle with the pace that day and we do apologize.

Pace of play is important to us and this is something we do monitor.

Very nice layout with variety of holes. Fairways in great condition. Greens were good and reasonably fast but 3/4 greens had some dead spots that need attention. If not for the pace of play from 9th to 18th it would have been a fantastic day of golf. Lots of bunkers in fairways and greens that were very frustrating because they need more sand (hardpacked sand is hard to hit out of). Fix the bunkers, repair the greens and keep people moving would make this a 5 star.

Nice level course. Easy to walk if you like. All greens have bunkers all around them making accurate approach shots a must. Greens are fast, fairways are in good condition and rough is longer . A fun place to play.

I am making it a point to review courses that I play because I often get upset when I cant find a current review. I played an afternoon round at GCU, it was cart path only but I walked so it was perfect. The course has come in great after the overseed. There are a couple of greens that did not respond but it looks like they are making the effort to repair them. If you have not played this course since the GCU remodel you have no idea what you are missing. The fairways were in great shape and the greens were really good with the exception of a maybe two with damage. The pace of play slows at times and because of the park style layout you can hit into people from time to time with a miss hit. Staff was great. The only negative I have is the street traffic is a but much and it seems the only solution would be a large fence around the property. This course is an easy walk, FYI they also put in paved cart paths which makes the course look a lot better.
