I've been trying to sharpen my iron skills and this was a great cheap course to do that. Some insanely short par 3's that you can reach with a 56 and some at 170. if you want to work on driving/putting go somewhere else. really fun though to hit every green in reg and shoot close to even par. Great practice course overall, especially for the price.

A decent beginners course. 3 of the holes were flooded out so we were able to play 6 holes twice. The course lacked ball wash stations and hole markers which would have helped a lot. This was our 1st and last time playing this course.

This course has greatly improved. I'm not sure if its all the rain that Scottsdale has had or if its new management, but the course is really nice. Their biggest problem is the lack of signs, indicating where the holes are and the distance.

Pace of play moved right along. The course was in rough condition, perhaps because it's early in the season. The holes were not numbered so it was not easy to always find the next tee. A very basic course but then again, we didn't pay a whole lot.

I had a few hours on the afternoon I played so I booked a tee time @ Coronado and it cost me a whopping $9. For a $1/hole I have absolutely zero complaints about this course and I will in fact be back to play and recommending this course to friends for a nice and short chip n putt practice round. I recently got a new set of callaway clubs for christmas and I desperately needed to work on my irons. This course was PERFECT for that as most of the holes range from 110 - 175 yards (exec style course). There are a few "Par 4's" that you can use a driver or 3/5 wood if you like. No better feeling than driving the green on a "par 4" which I did on the 270 yard 9th hole! The only complaint I had was this is a CASH ONLY course and I didn't know that when I showed up. The gentleman behind the counter said I would have to go to the ATM at Albertons or circle K. I was really none to pleased with this but I guess I didnt have a choice. Upon my return the guy behind the counter could see I was upset for the inconvenience of having to get cash and he DEF turned a negative into a positive and offered to comp my cart rental. This guy and his wonderful customer service is the reason I will be returning to this course. I have been in the hotel industry for 9+ years and I will tell you, anyone can leave a customer in a bad mood but being able to read a guest and knowing how to turn the situation around is what makes the difference and he certainly did that for me. I call that "heroic hospitality." Overall, great job Coronado, I'll be back this weekend.

Wanted to take my wife out who is beginning to pick up the game and I hope I can erase this from her memory.

Coronado 9 is the worst condition golf course I have played in the valley. I understand its was the start of summer season, but there is no way it should have been this brutal. Do yourself a favour..........when your looking to play an executive course, head to Encanto, Aguila 9, Augusta Ranch or Rolling Hills. At least they have a maintenance staff!

And I have never heard of a course that only accepts cash?? Brutal

I had a great time playing Coronado golf club.

It is golf at its true essence.

I was on vacation in Scottsdale from Las Vegas.

While down in Scottsdale I played a couple of premier golf resorts. Arizona Biltmore and The Phoenician.

I had more enjoyment playing the little 9 hole course at Coronado golf club. The reason being you had regular people playing golf for the love of the game. And not these corporate phonies or elitist that play at the big resorts. I love the history of the place as well.

I found out it is the oldest golf club in Scottsdale.

How cool! !

Monday I played this course "twice", i.e. the first time and the last time. It's basically a cow pasture without the cow chips. There were plenty of golfers on the driving range and course so I guess they do a good business. The only plus for me was Rolling Rock for $1.50 in the clubhouse.

This course should not have been offered on Golf Now as it was not ready for play after overseeding. None of the holes were open for play and two of the holes (out of 7) were closed completely. The holes we could play consisted of a temp tee box in the fairway and a pin stuck in an oversize hole stuck in the middle of the fairway about 50 yards away. Basically a 7 hole pitch & putt in a pasture. We were not offered a refund but told we had to go to Golf Now to request one. No offer of raincheck or range balls or anything else. Great service! We hit our 7 chip shots & bounced a few putts & left. Pace of play was great as no one else was playing!

Do not waste your time on this pasture. With out a word of a lie this is the worst track of land I have ever golfed on. We have golfed it 3 times and it has got worse each time we came back. I understand it is October and the grass is burnt what grass they have left. The were aerating the greens and tee boxes and they were better after they were ripped up than before. We were just walking up to No. 9 and a greens keeper came up and took away the tee markers and then he went to the green and removed the flag and cup. There was no warning they were closing the course as the web site is still taking tee times for today and tomorrow. No management, nobody cares. When you book on Golf Now it is $7.50 and when you pay at the club house, as we did, it was $10.00 you got to wonder what is going on. We have golfed on courses from the South Pacific, Dawson City Yukon Terr. in Canada's Arctic, to all over North America and have never been subjected to such a farce as Coronado. We will not be back ever.
