I call this my default course! Not cheap and not expensive but the course is always in good shape! It is an excellent course to bring a friend for a friendly game. It has enough nuances to make it tough yet deceivingly easy to make it fun. Good driving range, good putting green.

When all else is taken, there is always "The Lagends at Arrowhead!"

Golf in the $20-$30 range in Phoenix is common once temperatures hit triple digits. If you are seeking lush surroundings and perfect conditions, try another course.

Arrowhead offers hills, a lot of fairway/green bunkers, water challenges, but not too many large greens. The course is far from being in perfect shape (at least twice I had to move my ball on the green as the terrain was a little brutal). The greens will be comparatively slow, but manageable.

The carts are gas, not electric. So they are not quite as fast/smooth but again, manageable. The traps around the greens could use more sand, but I have found this to be the case in many Phx courses under $60.

This is not a course if you want a lasting memory of Phx golf. There are other courses for that. However, it is a pretty good challenge, fairly forgiving with the fairways, and I enjoyed it. It's really hard to beat a $20 round of golf, and you'll likely hit every club in your bag.

We have played "The Legends" a number of times over the years. We were extremely disappointed because we felt like the course had "shut down" for the summer.

The pace of play was extremely slow. One party, two groups ahead of us, actually quit the course on number 13 and returned to the clubhouse. We asked them to send out a ranger . . . didn't happen. The greens had been sanded, apparently, and were greased lightning. They are undulating greens, challenging under the best of conditions, and, well, you know. The price was right, but we expected better conditions.

Also, I bought a jumbo bucket of range balls, when I got to the range, found myself hitting off sand. What a mess. (It should have been a sign!) I was sorry I used some of my golfnow promos on this course.

if you are a 12 handicap or lower, you may enjoy the challenge. Above 12, you won't~!.. In the fairway count on an uphill, side hill, or down hill lie. The greens undulate, are designed to confuse the most advanced golfer. severe breaks from difficult reads. aggravating four and a half hours~!

Lots of dog-legs, good course if you draw/fade the ball well. I do not but had a good time. Greens were a bit rough but putted fairly straight. Looking forward to playing again.

Pin placement for all of the holes were ridiculous. The greens were rock hard and there was no way to get the ball close to the hole to score with those pin placements. The course was also playing slow, but we never saw a course Marshall moving groups along.

This Arnold Palmer designed course with its rolling fairways and undulating greens is a pleasant challenge. A little longer than mainstream courses here, it's very playable for good scores!

Very slow round. 5 - 10 min wait at each tee box. Course was overbooked it seemed. 5hr 10min round. A lot of hard pan on backside, a bit disappointing. Bunkers need to be refreshed, hard as a rock sand. Starter was a bit smug. Said if I was going to hit from the tips I better be able to keep up with the group I front of me. Drove it right in front of the green 325 yards and gave him a wink. Decent course, has potential just need to space out tee times another 3 min or so and a little tlc.
