I played club west about two years ago in the summer and really hadn't been back since. I've always known them to have a nice course. I read the reviews before going and id have to say, i think people were a little over the top about the fairways. They are in summer condition hands down, but the greens i will fully agree with people on. The greens were bumpy and horrid. Ive played greens in mid summer that were better than these. I'm not sure what they are going through but id hope by next winter they get it together. Only reason i'm not recommending to still go and play is due to the greens. I can over look the fairways due to being an avid Az summer golfer, i'm used to it. The greens though really ruined the round for me. Its a great course, i hope they get things worked out.

I am assuming at one time that this course was a go-to venue. The holes are designed nicely and you have to use most of the clubs in your bag. BUT..... the fairways and greens were the worst I'd ever walked on. Brown fairways. Crusty, pock-marked greens. Obviously a serious lack of H20 issue. In addition to playing on such a rundown course, I had to leave after nine because of the SLOWWWWW pace of play. Not a fun experience at all... Within 150 minutes, it was my first time on this course - and alas, the final one as well.

First time I played CW this year. I usually play it 5-6/year, as I enjoy the layout, elevation changes and overall course structure. Excellent customer service in clubhouse and starters/cart girl.

The biggest challenge is that it's still early April after a pretty substantial rainy season and the course is already as dry as it usually is in July/August. CW would never, even in its best days, be described as lush, but normally a good drive would find a good lie in short green grass. Now, even a solid drive in the middle of a fairway has a chance had a fairly hardpan lie. This helps distance on drives, but wreaks havoc on second shots into the green.

Tee boxes needed work, especially #1 and #17, which doesn't look like any sod has been replaced in at least three years and could conceivably be confused with a bunker, there's so much sand (I played from Blues). Greens were also quite sandy, but still fairly smooth and held lines well. Bunkers (I was in 4) had limited sand (1" or so) and a lot of rocks and pebbles. Very challenging from which to hit.

Overall, the layout is enjoyable, the staff is excellent, but the course need to splurge on a little water to make it more playable.

This course COULD be very nice. The views and layout are fine, but the maintenance is pretty much nonexistent.

And WATERING could probably change the course from beige to green.

The fairways and greens were horrible. The greens were patchy at best , dry and just outright horrible condition. This course use to be a great one to play but I will never play it again. There was no marshal on the course and the pace of play was so bad, that we quit after 11 hours .

I've played here a handful of times over the last 2 years and today was the absolute worst I have ever seen it. It was in such bad shape. The tee boxes were overgrown, the fairways had massive dirt spots, and the greens were a mixture of dirt, dead grass and pitch marks.

In the past the course was always in pristine condition but it was just abysmal. The bunkers were laughably bad. They were either mud, clay, or just bare concrete and just littered with rocks and pebbles. One member of our group really messed up his wedge hitting out of the bunker because a acorn sized rock dinged up his club.

It's a shame to see such a beautiful course get neglected like this. It used to be on my short list but now it's something I'll avoid at all cost, especially what they're trying to charge.

I will, however say the staff was very nice and the pro shop, clubhouse, bar & restaurant are great but that doesn't make up for the course conditions.
