Nice course. In good shape. If you are fascinated by small prop and jet airplanes you will love sinice they are constantly overhead. The bunkers on this course are plentiful, large, deep and the sand is really packed and hard. Many are placed in front of the green so u must fly over on your approach shot. This would be my only criticism, for a public course there are way too many bunkers and they are way too hard.

Give the golf course a rating of 3.5 out of 5 but the staff, facilities, pace of play, and general friendliness and value is 1.5 out of 5. Green fees are not cheap and they still charge you for range balls......come on? No direction on carts and practice facilities. The carts are set up but you don't get a key until they allow you to travel to the first tee like they don't trust you. No beverage cart or even a Marshall to help move play along. Course conditions were good but all the other little things outweigh the course. Checkin process in pro shop and bag drop off was also very cold and non inviting. Not a great way to start the round. Anyway won't be playing this course again.

Absolutely loved this course and can't wait to play it again- our only complaint was yardage markers were far and few between and were not easy to see- if I had remembered my GPS this would not have been an issue. BEAUTIFUL COURSE.

There were 6 in the group and we all enjoyed the course. It is very well maintained and all the staff is exceptional friendly. The fairways are out there to be hit with good drives and ones that stray off the fairway are easy to find and get back to the fairway or greens. We played this course twice as we enjoyed it so much. The weekend price is high but look on Golfnow for great rates. When I'm back in the Phoenix area I will be playing it against.

please put some sand in your "sand " traps!!!!!!!! Mickealson could not hit out of your traps. I would have done better in the parking lot, with less damage to my sand wedge. I was embarassed being there, you should be embarassed having them.

Overall a fair golf course but not worth more than $75 per round at most. The very flat terrain does get boring. Many people will be bothered by the nonstop small aircraft landing and taking off from Falcon field. Within our round you average a noisy low level plane every couple minutes. As it has been over the last few years many of the traps are too firm with far too many rocks in them.

On the plus side the greens are as good as any in the valley.

Like the course. Pace of play good but we were delayed at least. 20 minutes off the first tee. When round of golf exceeds $100 the range balls should be complimentary.
