Good course layout, fairly easy to get to greens. Greens were slow due to the type of grass or what ever is on them. My suggestion is get someone in to look and fix the greens so they are in better rolling condition.

I wI'll start by saying I've been playing this course about 3-4 years now, used to play it about 100 times a year, over the past year it's been less and less due to the course conditions and bad greens, most of the people I play with will not play Pueblo El Mirage, it's actually been a while since I've played... for the price they charge this year there are much better courses, always liked the layout and went back yesterday with my wife and a friend and a 4th that gave up on the 12th hole... Course condition was still less than par, thin knotted up grass on all fairways, still have to move the ball around on most shots and still pretty bumpy greens, a little better but not much, the play was extremely slow, after 4 hours we were only on the 14th tee box, very slow group in front of us, group behind us gave up and left, I called the clubhouse, they said they would send someone out, ranger came by on the 15th hole, said he was NOT sent out and that he couldn't see a problem, I told him about the group that drove by us saying they had enough, I told him we teed off at 11:15, it was now past 3:30 and we were heading for a 5 hour plus round, he said he would go say something and proceeded to drive right by them and never said a thing... this is only going to continue to run off the golfers that will keep the course going outside snowbird season, known for its problems in the past the problems continue for this course, probably wouldn't go back and it's too bad as much as I've played this course

Greens were a bit patchy and it looked like someone drove over one or two of them, but it was a beautiful morning and the course was in mostly decent shape. Pro shop staff was excellent and the round went well. Will definitely play here again.

We've played here many times and always enjoy ourselves. The only criticism we have is the slow service in their restaurant after the game. We've gone in for dinner many times and they are always understaffed. It was the second visit for the couple we played with yesterday and they will skip having dinner there from now on.

Great course other than having to navigate the maze of side streets to find the next hole. Some of the lanes are a little narrow with casitas creeping closer to the fairways. Always enjoy golfing here and the restaurant has great food and employees are very hospitable.

Greens were very bumpy and many had scar marks and missing grass. Couldn't tell the difference between fairway and the rough on most holes. Very disappointed in a course I used to love playing.

We played here over 15 years ago and it was bad. Heard they made changes, so we tried it again. The fairways were hard and terrible. You could hit down on the ball and you would only take off a thin layer of grass. 'Cow pasture'

Worst sand traps we have EVER played. Below a 1/8" layer of dirt (not sand) was a hard pack, like rock.

You could not take a normal sand shot. Your club would just skid or bounce off the hard pack.

Greens were like velcro.

A lot of fairways were between rows of modular/mobile homes. As we crossed to some holes we drove down the streets for a while. I felt like I was in a mobile home park.

Seems like nothing has changed from many years ago.

The weather was perfect though.
