It seemed to us that they are no longer maintaining the course. The fairways are either dead grass or just dirt. The tee blocks don’t look like they have been moved in a while . Too bad, but it may be the sign of the times.

the course has a good format, but needs attention to the fairways in general, greens and bunkers are OK considering the price, but my guess is that the owner does not want to but any monies into the course??? If the proper use of funds and management this course could be bought back and more desirable for patrons to come back, and recommend to a friend.

I've golfed at Villa De Paz several times. This the greens were pretty slow. Which is okay once you get used to them. Seems that nobody repairs their ball marks on the green. Grass is sparse in a lot of the fairways or non existent. I like to course layout. It is one of the less expensive courses in the area. Maybe that's why it is not in as good of shape as most.

Listed as attractive course with many mature trees to provide shade however many of these old trees are dead or already removed due to disease. Fairways and greens occasionally very nice to beautifully kept but most fairways and greens in poor shape either due to lack of maintenance...perhaps lack of funds. Even small things would improve conditions....i.e. refrain from dumping cut grass on fairway, clean off-site restrooms, repair divots. Ball washers were all well maintained however and carts were clean. Friendly staff.

Course was in great condition, fairways overseeded coming in great. Greens we're rolling very well. They could stand to mow the clover along the fairways a little shorter to facilitate finding errant tee shots. Would be a better looking course if they cleaned up along the adjoining property walls. There was a lot of trash strewn about.

Fun course. Hole four is challenging as it’s staight down then 90% left over water. Play it as a 3 shot to the green and an easy birdie. Winter grass just coming in. Greens are slow due to over seeding. Great way to spend the day, pricing is great. Would recommend this course for an enjoyable round

Many courses in the AZ area are in transition season (thatching and changing to winter grasses), and this course in that transition now. However, I find that the thatched grass plays surprisingly well and I actually get a longer run-out and better lie than when the regular grass is growing. The greens continue to be in better condition than expected and roll pretty quick (which I like) and true. Still, this course is one where you better keep it in the fairways (which are narrower than most I have played), and best way to play well is not to try to bomb every drive, but rather use good course management and play for accuracy, not distance. Fairways are lined with lots of trees and houses to get in your way, so beware. Some cart path areas are paved and pretty good, but much of the course pathways tend to be bumpy and rough. Basic summary is, that this is a really good course for the cheap greens fees, and just fine for honing your game for accuracy.
