Hi @u000002398019

we're sorry you didn't enjoy your experience. Good news is bermuda grass has been spotted, repeat, it has been spotted! Phew! Our energies have been focused on rectifying the conditions, and that shy little grass is finally waking from its winter slumber. Thank goodness! Come back soon, and you'll see a massive difference - Kate

Hey chris6993100 - our summer pricing is in effect and reflects summer conditioning - that said, we have experienced a lag in our bermuda growth. Our Course Superintendent has been giving it a good talking to - and along with all the sciency stuff which i'm sure you already know about, it seems to be working! Come on back with your bounce back offer, you'll play for just $27 any time through the summer and see a big improvement in the fairway coverage. Kate

on your website you rated the course almost 5 stars and it should have been rated 1 star. very disappointed. I played 9 holes and left. I called Golf Now and asked for my money back. i ended getting half my money back and was very unhappy. There should have been an icon or something to let you know the course was in horrible shape. The only reason i played 9 because i had driven out there and decided to see how bad it was. I knew it was going to be really badly when spoke to some one who just played the course. He told me they took there ball and played out of the rough to get a decent lie. I repeat very disappointed. .

Hey @uEBZD2519EB - you're totally right, Golf Digest did rate us a 5* experience. Now, you have come to us during our annual spring summer transition. This is admittedly a tricky time and, that sleepy bermuda grass just didn't wake up as quickly as we had expected. The good news? The bermuda is now beginning to grow through, and so it won't be long til we see full coverage - Kate

The winter conditions were amazing!!!! However, there is not grass on the course. At all. You are playing off of scraped fairways and mud/dirt. For $30. It is not worth it. It resembles a poorly run municipal course now.

this course is a great layout but on the day I played the fairways were almost all dirt!!! An advisory on GOLFNOW from the course about their overseed not having been done would have been great. I MEAN ALL THE FAIRWAYS WERE DIRT, ALL OF THEM! I ran into a senior level superintendant, and asked him what happened to the course. he got indignant with me and began to give me a lesson on overseeding. It was not appreciated, but I guess he got defensive about his course. lol. funny. the greens were great, but tough to play off of dirt.

Unfortunately I was very disappointed. The course was going over a lot of maintenance and over seeding. Fairways were dirt and gone. Usually they keep the course in great shape. I live in Scottsdale, so it's a good 45 min drive. GolfNow usually notifies you about seeding and arrogation, but not this time. I'm not sure if I'll make it back out there

Hey @Nick4784494

Like many courses in the Valley, we're working our way through the spring/summer transition period which is why you're seeing some browning areas on the course. Here we apply a herbicide to kill off the rye grass to allow the summer bermuda grass to emerge from its winter-long nap. Our agronomy team are monitoring the conditions closely and expect that our bermuda grass will soon create a nice green coverage - Kate

The fairways were horrible to say the least. Burnt out grass and hard pan. Would purposely drive to the edges of the fairways to get a somewhat better surface to have a chance of striking the ball more purely. Bunkers were lacking sand, barely left footprints and felt like you were hitting off of the cartpath instead. This course needs to be shutdown and have proper maintenance done on it before more play should be allowed on it.

Good thing that I got a Hot Deal to play for a cheap price. Would have to pay me to play there under these conditions the next time, if I even considered coming back. I don't foresee any improvement being possible for at least 2 months.

Hey @bevinsr - we are right in the middle of our spring/summer transition period which is why you're seeing those browned out areas on the course. Our bermuda growth is on the way, so you'll soon begin to see that nice green coverage that you're looking for. Sounds like you had a good chance to perfect your target practice by successfully aiming for the rough, and hopefully the great deal you snagged, eased your pain a little :)

Hi @fostreet54 - our bermuda grass grown in has been a little slow - but we can assure you once it hits it's stride, you'll see a nice green coverage. PS we hope you picked up your bounce back offer providing for even better rates next time you play. We also have our simple pricing in effect, $40 / $30 / $20 - so be sure to take advantage of our summer tee times, now through August 31st! - Kate

I played the course on June 2nd. I was surprised to see how poor the conditions were on the golf course. Temperatures in Phoenix have been moderate, only reaching 100 degrees a few times in the last week or two and yet the course looked as if it were the middle of July and they hadn't watered for a month. While I have, historically, enjoyed the course, this experience puts into question whether I will ever go back.

Hey @nwfisher - our agronomy team are monitoring the bermuda grass grow-in closely. As stewards of the land, we need to be responsible and conscious of our water usage, using just enough to encourage the bermuda grass out of dormancy. It's coming, and with patience, we will ensure a good summer coverage, and a great transition heading into season. We hope you'll come back out and play - we have great summer rates in place as well as $1 beers! - Kate

Played the course the first month it opened in 2004. It was a beautiful Links style course then but not anymore: they killed all the wild grass that gave the course so much character. The back nine had a much better eye layout and character making it fun to play.

Preen waiting to play this course for awhile. I had a friend to come town and wanted to trip him, I have to say I was completely embarrassed . From

The start the staff at check showed hey could care less, no one to help with carts and once on the course their were 5 broken down golf carts on the course not to include the beverage cart that was abandoned in the middle of the fairway. It was May in AZ and although the weather was hot the course should have been in better condition. All the fairways were completely brown and dry and cracked. We ever saw a beverage cart attendant and it was easier to chip off the cart path than the fairway. In fact I was putting at 80 yards out because the fairway was so dry. Once finished I went to check in with what pro shop but was informed they closed at 5 pm.Once I was finished i spoke to the cart attendant and he just laughed because he said he knows the course is in horrible shape but won't water it. I have golfed at some suspect places but this was by far the worst place I have ever been.I wouldn't ever golf there again even if they payed me. On one final note I have never written a review but this was so bad I thought I would let people know not to waste their money.

I played this course last summer and it was in great shape so I expected more of the same. The fairways were in horrible shape. There were a ton of hot spots and dead patches. Hitting out of the first cut was almost better at times because there was actually some grass to hit off of. Bunkers and greens were in fair shape. Greens still rolled true although they didn't look great. Hoping this was just a transition period for them because I love this course. Cart girl and clubhouse staff were great. Pace of play was awesome.

Hi @macgolfer79413

Thanks so much for coming out to play. We appreciate you taking the time to write your review.

You mentioned that you came across a few "brown" areas - you're absolutely right - and here's why.

Spring transition is the period where an over seeded desert golf course transitions from winter grass (Ryegrass) to summer grass (Bermuda grass). Our property chooses to fully over seed nearly all turf areas to enjoy beautiful rewards during the cooler months while Ryegrass can thrive in the Arizona desert. With this decision comes other subsequent, related decisions and practices which must take place during the warmer months. This is a time of year where a desert golf course will not be colorful green at all times. It is our intent to continue to focus on excellent playing conditions while minimizing the aesthetic decline and the time frame of which it occurs.

We hope that helps to explain the coloration on course, and sincerely hope you'll be able to come out and play again soon! Kate
