Firstly the course...The condition has improved a great deal. Membership covers four courses...great value maybe for $4300 but I would love there to be an annual membership paid monthly just for Ahwahtukee. Say $1500 for the year including cart For tee times after 11am in summer and midday in winter. If they were to do this, I would also start a club with UK style weekend golf,events for competitive golfers. A monthly medal, a monthly stapleford and a club match play. Management, feel free to email me if you are at all interested in my ideas. Many working people I think would embrace this.

But this review is primarily about LPGA pro, Arlene Flynn. I recently started working with Arlene as a previous 12 handicapper who was returning to the game after a serious illness. Arlene has worked with my physical limitations and showed a deep level of understanding towards what I want to achieve. Like any great teacher she listens, and explains her thoughts in terms any player can understand. In my case, she understood I had a good grasp of swing mechanics and swing theory. Arlene communicates very clearly and uses video analysis as a tool with just the right balance of technical info as well as utilizing mental imagery as well as easily distilled instructions with the purpose of achieving the goals of the student.

It is very clear to me Arlene not only loves golf but genuinely loves teaching. Her desire to help every student from the beginner to the advanced player is clear to anyone who meets her. Doubtless she is in high demand in part because her prices are very reasonable nut most of all because she truly is one of the best teachers in AZ. Regardless of gender, age or golfing ability, I commend the services to you of LPGA Pro, Arlene Flynn to golfers everywhere. With quality practice and her quality instruction, Arlene will help you enjoy this wonderful game as you work towards your golfing goals.

With slow play being the biggest problem with Golf.. why would the Club allow Fivesome to booK and tee off? Then to make things just a little more difficult they would not allow smaller groups to play thru.

Ahwautukee must put all their money into the pool and tennis courts because the golf course is mostly neglected. It is a "Country Club" only in name!

Grass (where there is some) is groomed but full of weeds. Most holes have large dirt areas along the fairways where the rough or grass should be.

The greens are good (although they are all flat in design) and the traps have pretty good sand.

If you want to feel great about your tee shot this is the course for you. The fairways are like the tarmac at Phoenix Sky Harbor.

I guess you get what you pay for.

Nice to have a golf course close to home but course has and is every changing. Old trees are cut down or dying, some fairways are very dry and dusty. Nice new gold carts are a plus but my wife prefers more scenic venues. Could not book on line with GN had to call, even they had a difficult time. One green had been vandalized by a 4 wheeler, not much you can do but shake your head.

The course is in terrible condition, I paid $40 for a round and it's not worth $15!

It all started with me checking in. I had to go up 2 flights of concrete stairs which are all uneven and tore up...just about broke my ankle.

Every T-Box was uneven...good luck finding a flat spot! The fairways were ok, the greens were beat up and very unputtable! Don't hit your ball in the rough...wait...what rough? This place is horrible! Stay away!!! What a waste of $!!!

The course was in pretty good shape. The greens were good except some idiots did donuts on one of the holes. The damage looks like it won't be repaired until after the summer. Not much the course can do about that.

We enjoyed the Coarse. We played it several times and like the coarse over all. We are both high handicappers and don't feel pressured by better golfers. The greens was better than I seen on some high priced coarses. We played in the morning and finished in just over 3 hours. I hope this coarse stays open so we can continue to come and enjoy our round.
