We play at many different courses typically twice per week. The staff were nonexistent. Our tee time was 1:52. There was a wait at the first hole. As we continued the wait grew longer. By the third hole there were two groups ahead of us waiting and a group coming up right behind us. It took until 4:20 just to get to the 8th hole and there were now 4 groups waiting at the hole and 2 groups behind us. We called the pro shop. They didn't really care After the ninth hole we decided to do the front nine again. It was almost 5:00 so we figured there shouldn't be that much of a wait. There was just one group in front of us so we stuck it out and finished up around 6:45.

Late Sunday is an Ideal time to play this time of year, just really pleasant out when shadows are long. Course was in GOOD condition, greens were receptive- firm and rolled consistently smooth ! Fairways and rough(which was!) also were in fine shape. Seems only the tee boxes looked like the "Winterizing" is around the corner, too bad as I would come back this Sunday AGAIN. Bunkering sand will always be tough to keep ideal but that could be said about PLENTY of courses.

Reviews constantly mention less than IDEAL conditions at The Legends, I didn't see it this time and the design of the course throughout is just well done to have a GOOD time Here ! THANKS Folks.

This course plays between housing developments, with wide fairways and well manicured grass and greens. The rough was difficult to get the ball up and out. Most of the sand traps were wet and hard packed making it difficult to make any type of flop shots to recover.

We began as a foursome, one dropped out after nine holes and we finished the round in a bit more than four hours. Nice and plentiful giant Palm trees adorned the course.

I would play this course again if I have the opportunity.

For $10 I don't expect much, but I was still disappointed. I absolutely love the design of this course, but the condition certainly detracts from the enjoyment of the round. Shaggy fairways, unkempt rough, soggy patches (without rain), tore up tee boxes, just to name a few. I understand it's summer but at least make an effort to keep the course playable. It's a shame, too, because I can tell that this used to be a premier course and it has lost all of its glory. The views were quite rewarding and a complement to every hole.

Must have had a storm the night before we played!! Typical for this course is to be in good shape but a ton of grass clippings, standing water and branches all over. Greens were very slow as well.

Played this course at like 2pm pace of play was fine meet up with a nice gentleman. However the course is just going downhill each time I play it. I remember when this course was in average condition it was fun and playable but now its barely tenable. I hit it in about 4 bunkers never saw a rake the whole time the sand is never tilled or raked. Lots of burnt out edges on the course the greens are getting even more torn up that usual. I have finally reached the point I wont go back till it gets taken care of the conditions are just to poor.

The course is an Arnold Palmer design. It is a great layout. It just isn't maintained properly. Things like bare spots in the rough, weeds in the bunkers, tree limbs overhanging on cart paths, poor golf carts...

What used to be isn't anymore at Arrowhead. Good and cheap, not too many folks on it when they have other low dollar choices in the heat season.

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.
