I live 5 miles from this course and play here once every 4 years - and kick myself every time I come back. They started overseeding today so what do they do yesterday? You guessed it, place every hole right on the middle of a downslope on 15 of 18 greens. I half expected to see a clown's mouth on the 18th green. See you in 2022 Kokopelli. I hate you.

They were getting ready for over seeding so knew the conditions would not be idea. My issue is teeing off 45 minutes late and taking almost 3 hours to play the front nine. There were no Marshalls and the pace was truly unbearable. We quit after 11 holes. The staff was friendly and did all they could do.

Wish we were told that they were scalping and drying out the golf course before I scheduled this round. Very dry conditions, dry grass blown into the air all day. Thick rows of dry grass in the "rough" area. Greens were ok though. It was still a good day to golf and we will play again when the overseed is completed.

The course is so dry that the maintenance trucks caused dust storms that rival our monsoons. We did get plenty of roll when we stayed in the fairway but any ball that landed in the rough was covered with dry cut grass. The areas surrounding the greens were unfair as the mowers left clumps of grass. Time to find another place to play.

WE WERE NOT TOLD THE COURSE WAS SCALPED OR THAT THEY HAD 2 TOURNAMENTS BEFORE OUR TEE TIME. I GUESS THAT IS WHY WE TEED OFF 40 MIN. LATE! I WOULD THINK THAT WOULD BE POSTED ON THE WEBSITE.

THERE ARE THREE HOLES WHERE YOU HAVE TO TURN AROUND AND DRIVE BACK TOWARDS THE FAIRWAY RIGHT INTO ON COMING OTHERS HITTING YOUR DIRECTION!! VERY DANGEROUS!

THE BACK NINE RESTROOM IS A PORT-A-POTTY.

Great day minus the slow karts and play. The cook in the snack shop ignored me and my group for over 8 mins before being greeted. The only reason we were greeted was because I said something. Trying to get soda and snack on the turn didn't work out well. Did have my first hole in one on 17th hole. 9 irons 126 yards..

Wanted to get a quick round in today, worse decision coming here. I get this time of year in Arizona is when the courses are worked on, but this place was the worse. There was more dirt than grass. looked like the only water they put on it was when a monsoon comes through. The 18th hole is a joke , it's located right next to the driving range and for the amount of range balls that littered the fairway i felt like I was taking my life in my own hands playing this hole. Will not be playing here again and in no way suggest this course to any of my friends..

For Phoenix this time of year course was in good shape. Recently had quite a bit of rain so the bunkers were not good. Greens were slow but in good shape, fairways were in very good shape.

I play Legacy as my weekly course, but saw a deal for $12 a man this week and grabbed it since I live a mile from here.

The course was the most challenging I've played in my limited golf experience.

The bar was closed, and staff was sitting inside the office. They said they had beers behind the desk, but nothing from the bar which was awkward.

We also just got a ton of rain, and they are renovating the 12th hole, so it there was water in places there typically probably is not.

All of that being said, I will 100% be back frequently. Great course layout, and the grass was kept nicer than any other course I've played this summer.

Very challenging bunker and water placements, and the greens are rolling hills on every hole.

I really enjoy the layout of this golf course, it makes you think about the shot you want to hit especially around the greens. Course drying out a bit, greens in good shape.

Pro shop friendly at best. Get you in and on the course.

Stopped to grab a bite at the turn. Restaurant attendant appeared inconvenienced that we wanted to grab a bite. Hope that gets corrected.

I will play the course again.

I understand that it is the middle of summer and that there aren't that many people that play at this time of yer. I also understand that for the price we pay for this time of year doesn't warrant the best the course has to offer during peak season. What I don't understand is that most sand traps had an inch of standing water or completely filled with mud. Again, I understand that I should not be expecting the best the course has to offer, but there are other courses that provide a better experience for a similar price.
