This was a nice relatively easy flat course. No major obstacles other than the normal ponds and low sand traps. Nothing one can't get through on a regular round. It had a few ponds with a stream running on the right of a few holes. More wide than narrow fairways and medium to large greens. I will play this course again.

Had 12:45 tee time, no one teed off between 11:45-12:30 so asked if we could get out early ahead of 4 ladies groups. Pro shop made us sit and wait, as per hot deal rules, but all it did was compact the groupings so we had to wait on every shot. How about some common sense?

Fairways ans tee boxes were poor- little grass on many tee boxes. Fairway grass is sparse , looks like not enough grass seed used in overseeding. Greens not quite as bad, but certainly not up to what they have been in the past and certainly poorer condition than most courses in north west Phoenix valley. At $44 plus fees of $6 it's not good value for your buck.

For my level of skill, Palmbrook golf course is the best choice for me of any golf course within 20 miles of my house. Living in the northwest corner of the Phoenix metropolitan area, I have a lot of options for golf. Palmbrook is in great shape, keeps a great pace of play going and has excellent practice facilities for a competitive price compared to the Sun City Courses and Sun City West Course at this time of year.

Fairways & greens were perfect. Frost delay, but once we teed off, pace was excellent. 3.5 hours in December is unheard of in Phoenix. Rate we paid for a Saturday morning round was very reasonable. Totally enjoyable round...I’ve played much better and enjoyed myself much less.

A friend and I wanted to get a quick round in before the sun want down. We just finished in time. Course was in great shape. Greens still a little slow but ran true as always. The staff is always nice even the guy that was waiting on the last cart (ours) was pleasant about us keeping him late.

Played on Thanksgiving and there couldn't have been more than a dozen people on the course. We got around in 3 hours on a perfect day. Course is in good shape, greens are a little faster than other courses in the area, which are still coming out of overseeing. We got a "hot deal" so it was a very inexpensive round. Highlight of the round was when one of our group fell into a pond attempting to retrieve a ball. Memorable day. :-)

Course is well kept and in great shape with consistent greens and fluffy traps. Layout is perfect for groups with wide range of handicaps. Staff is friendly, practice green and range (with free balls-super cool) are nicely laid out. Great bang for the buck!

And, electric carts...personal opinion but makes for a more pleasant round.

Coarse was in great shape. Frustrating that most ball washers were empty and none had towels. Those that had water (perhaps five); were almost empty.

Called pro-shop and their response was they are in the process of eliminating the ball washers. This is very surprising as no ball washers on the rental carts.

If they continue this policy; I will not play there again.
