If this place is a country club, then every municipal course on earth should be able to tout themselves as a country club. Some highlights of the course:

- Clubhouse straight out of the 80's

- Uneven/unrolled tee boxes

- Patchy fairways with large dead spots not under repair

- Slow pace of play with no Marshall asking a slow 4-some to pick up the pace

- Greens as soft as a parking lot

I'm sure this place was great in 1982, but I wouldn't pay $3 to golf there again.

Staff was great! Course was decent considering it's been 114. However, the members are awful. It's the same story at the sister courses. Stuck behind a fivesome, they won't let a solo play through. A twosome jumped in front of them, which slowed everyone down. All of these Foothills Golf Group courses need a strict ranger, enforcing pace of play. Members get run of the place without consideration for other players. Took me 2 1/2 hours to play 6 holes as a solo when I started at 8:15. I finally quit. Staff was apologetic, gave me a rain check. I've previously raised this concern with the GM as I had a similar experience at Foothills, never fixed the problem. I wonder how bad it is come November. I won't be finding out personally as I've now gotten two rain checks, I just don't have 6 hours for a round of golf. Let the members pay for this place with no public support. As the paying public, any course will give you a $25 summer rate. If you're up for a 6 hour round, I do recommend this place. Great staff, course is a good challenge from the tips. Prices are reasonable.

Forget the bad reviews, the greens and fairways were in great shape when I played (they are punching the greens in late July). Both as good as you could want. Rough is rough. Little to no grass in the rough. Don't hit in the rough and it won't be a problem.

The course was in excellent condition & a great value. The pace of play was great until I caught up the crowd for the last 6 holes (which took longer to play than the first 12). But the round was just under 3 hours total. Once the play slowed and my single became a foursome of other singles, every was friendly and happy to be sharing the course.

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.

We appreciate the great review regarding our teaching pro Arlene, we are very lucky to have her at our course and appreciate the great compliments regarding her teaching techniques. We will definitely pass this information along.
