Due to over seeding the course was good. What really upset us was the over booking of the times. The course had a tournament set for the early morning. Shot gun start on all 18 holes. The course or golf now must not have blocked these tee times since I booked my tee time in the middle of the tournament. Out tee time was only two hours different from the tournament start times. It took 5.5 hours to play since we were told we had to wait for the tournament to finish. Would have been easier to just block those tee times for the tournament to save the confusion (5 groups were effected). I was upset the time frame to play was so long due to poor planning between them course and golf now.

I arrived at this golf course and had a long ride up the 9th Fairway. The roadway that takes you into the facility then turns into a large parking area just south of Luke Air Force Base Flightline. Some areas where overgrown. Some areas needed a lot more manicuring. The staff were extremely friendly period cost was $19 and change. Most courses at this time of year or shut down. Falcon Golf Club chose to remain open hints putting off their overseeding. The course is hard and fast right now. Greens are playable. Overall the course gets three and a half Stars.

The course was good but the rough was real rough. Course needs a brush cutter "flail" to clean up the rough. Not very scenic. Better markings on the course are needed.

Talking about a bang for your buck! This course is a hidden gem. Carl at the pro shop is very helpful and friendly. Golf pro mark will help you with your game. Only bad thing I can say about the course is the greens where a little slow but they are doing a lot of improvements on the course. Looking forward to play it again

Impressed how new ownership improved the condition of the course. If you played here before you know how bad it was. Please keep it up worth recommending to friends. Bring your own water and ice $2 for a styro cup cup with ice and water too much.

Course was not well maintained. Lot of fallen trees n grass cuttings all over the course. Be ware of mosquitoes. If you are looking for cheap and almost fair conditions then not too bad. For a little more money you could play better in the Phoenix area.

This course is set up to be challenging and fun, but maintenance is lacking . There were all the falling trees and they need to invest in some weed whackers. The Courses just in rough shape. At the time we checked in that they had a slight bug problem and we might need some bug spray. I’ve never been attacked by mosquitoes as badly as I was on this course, and I’ve golfed in Florida I hope this was a temporary problem in that the fairways and roughs will get better attention in the future.

they were cleaning up the course from the storm that passed through a few days earlier. bunkers need some work. rough was way too deep in certain spots but will be fine after being cut. greens and fairways were very good.

Course was in terrible shape!!! Weeds were so tall, you couldn't find our ballad. Poorly manicured and the course was infested with bugs of all sorts. At end of round my eyes were almost swollen shut. Will not be back. Used to be a nice course, don't know what happened.

I used to play this course about 10 times/year. I moved away 5 years ago. This is the first time I've played since I moved. The fairways and greens (a little slow) are better now than they ever were, back then.

Due to the large amount of rain they've had recently, the rough has not been cut for a few days. DON'T hit it in the rough, it's not easy.

I will return. It's fun to play.

This course could be fantastic like it was at the opening. Since the numerous ownership changes, this course has slipped dramatically backwards. Good owners mean good golf course, poor owners mean poor golf course. Layout is great but the grooming just isn't there.
