Well conditioned course. Greens were a little slow but smooth. A little confusing as I think the starter/marshall drives around. The morning I played I was supposed to play blue/white but the blue course was already backing up so when the starter pulled up he asked me if I would like to play white/gold instead. No issue with that and I believe they don't guarantee which of the three nines you will play. I'd definitely play this course again.

I've been coming out to the Phoenix area for the last four years on a golf vacation. We have played ocotillo the past three years. The first two years I played 27 holes each time. The condition of the course was very good until this year. Greens were very slow and bumpy, sand traps were mostly dirt, and the fairways had a lot of brown spots. Very disappointed.

Bring lots of balls! There is water everywhere! This course is very challenging for the golfer who usually shoot a score in the range of 100 - 110. Some of your shots expect a long carry over water which many of us are not able to do.

The course is so much fun however - and it's so beautiful that I feel that you must play it with that in mind. Play it to enjoy the beauty and to have a good time enjoying the game of golf!

my group arrived well in advance of our tee time, only to meet a somewhat grumpy employee at the bag drop. We went into the proshop an ran into a pleasant person who helped us swiftly and courteously. The starter was extremely courteous as was the course marshall.

The condition of the course was barely ok. The greens were just ok, the fairways were just ok, but the tee boxes were horrible. They were not in very good shape and were obviously not level. The sand traps were extremely hard...seems as though there has been no attempt to condition the sand properly. There even was landscape fabric sticking out of a sand trap on the white course. It is obvious to me that the head greenskeeper is not very attentive towards keeping his course well-groomed. I also picked up lots of bits of paper and a fair amount of candy bar wrappers...seems as though the marshall could do that.

The pace of play was fine...the layout was fine

For the money , this course was not a very good value for the money. I played a course in the chandler area that was immaculate. The greens were pure, the fairways were like carpet, and the course was challenging. Ocatillo is a resort course with too many short easy holes. The water hardly ever comes into play.

The course Marshall told us after 7 holes to use a different 9 for the back- (faster pace) When we teed off on the back nine we discovered that another group had just been "squeezed in" - a bit disappointing but that was the only negative for 5 rounds of golf at Ocotillo. I love me there!!

This was our second round at Ocotillo this year. It did not disappoint. We played white/gold this time. Having played blue/white previously we were not familiar with gold. There are a number of holes where you need to pay attention from the tee box.

The staff could not have been more friendly and helpful. Pace of play was very good! The on course marshalls were doing their job yet not in any threatening manner.

Strongly suggest you try this course.

This was my first time on this course - my playing partners had all played the course before but not for many years. Course conditions were quite good, the weather was beautiful and the pace of play good - we finished in just under 4 hours. As anyone who has ever played this course will tell you, water is in play on most holes. There is good bunkering and overall the risk/reward factor was fair. We all enjoyed the course, had a great day but would warn everyone that the flies and gnats were out in force!

Grass tee to green interspersed with adjacent and crossing lakes, streams on every hole. Palm trees in lieu of cactus, lots of other mature shade trees. All with a calming vibe that'll lull you to sleep if you don't give this fine course its respect by selecting the right spot for your drive to set up the best approach shot. When you see North Scottsdale courses and clubs of lesser pedigree asking twice the price to play you know how terrific Ocotillo is. My Chicago guest has played the top 30 in our state and has stated this is in his top 10. I agree. I mean just how many thorns, needles, and rocky lies do you need to claim desert target golf is the fun? Leave those bad memories behind and come play one of Florida's best right here in the Southwest USA.

Challenging course with water coming into play on most holes. Bring your "A" game or bring extra balls...conditions on tee boxes, fairways and greens were excellent. We thought the greens rolled true...

Grumpy Marshal tried to move us along on hole 3, where one of our players was having a tough hole. He didn't need to be a jerk about it. We returned to a good position within a few holes and then waited for the group(s) in front of us on the back 9. Didn't see grumpy marshal back there giving them "advice"...

Everything else during our visit was fantastic.
