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.

greens and fairways were in good shape, off the fairways it gets very sketchy, it's a pretty challenging course with narrow faiirway undulation, you can easily hit what you think is a good shot that takes a roll for the worse, nonetheless it is a great golfing value, it is a way to improve your golf game, course management can be critical at times, give it a try

This was an over all good course. There are a few holes that are hard to follow and a few of them are hard to find the markings on the course need some work. The best part of this course was that almost every hole you had to use your driver then follow that up with with a long iron or a fairway wood. Did I mention they have a ton of chances to find water or a sand trap and the rolling hills help make sure you are going to find one. It was fun I just played really bad so bad that I found water three times on the same hole.

The course was fine. What bothered me was golfnow blatantly lied about the actual cost of the retail charge offering an unrealistic discount. I was charged a service fee from golfnow, with the remaing charge to be paid in the pro shop. WhenI inquired what the green fees were it came to my attention that i actually paid more for my round through golfnow than if I had just booked it myself through the pro shop.

This course has a fantastic layout and is really challenging but when you have a course that is challenging.......you need to have as good if not better playing conditions. The course was a complete brick which is horrible considering all the lakes and ponds on the course.

Maintenance is needed desperately. I may give this course one more try because it is a very good layout.....but the conditions need to drastically improve.
