Good layout. Houses are throughout the course here.

I played the middle tees which seem to be just challenging enough for my 20 handicap and 63 years old.could be marked better, as numbers on sprinkler heads faded or nonexistent.

Will play again.

As a gold card member i try to stick to the foothills group of clubs. Country club is looking great especially the new sand in bunkers. Foothills is looking up again. Fairways green. Greens roll true.

Pace was great.

Having just played a mid-week, mid-morning round on a day when the weather was perfect on a course in a beautiful setting that's in fine condition at a great rate and having the course virtually to ourselves I am hesitant to announce this to the world and risk having the multitudes flock here as they have in the past, but there, I've done it. The secret's out.

Purportedly, the course has had it's challenges for a number of years dealing with some serious water issues. Consequently, the rates are low and the tee times plentiful. They solved the water issue and engaged in a 2 year restoration program. They're ahead of schedule and the course is in great shape. There are still a few bare spots and scars but in the two rounds I've played here recently they've never come into play or detracted from a great golfing experience. There's lots of evidence of the ongoing work to improve and maintain the course. When we played a few weeks ago my only real complaint was the condition of the practice tees. When we returned this week they were completely rebuilding those tees and they've set up temporaries on the other end of the range.

Like my favorite secluded campsite I'd prefer to keep this a carefully guarded secret however, unlike that campsite, the Foothills needs you all back so they can keep up the work of restoring the place to it's past glory. It's one of the best values in the east valley. Head out there now and you might miss the crowds that will will undoubtedly be returning soon. It will be our secret.

We've played twice here over the past two weeks, and found the course in very good shape. Our group enjoyed the diversity of hole layouts and the elevation changes, with associated views of the Valley. The staff was very friendly, both inside and outside, so the round was a fun time for my buddies and I. The course is fair, but if you stray of the tee-box.....good luck. We'll be back !!!!

This course is slowly bouncing back. The course layout has always been great! Course management has finally gotten the grass under control here and it is about 80% of the way back to its glory days. It is really worth playing right now before it becomes a popular spot once again.

While the conditions were not up to the $150 courses, you simply can not beat the value. While other people will complain about some bare spots (there were a few) they did not hinder my play at all. There were a few bare spots on the greens and fairways, but were very minor and did not interfere with play. Greens were a little slow, but overly so. They still putted good. Bunkers were good. Overall, you simply can not beat the value this course offeres! I thought for money I paid I was going to get a below average course. Not at all. It was above average and a great day playing golf. I will be coming back when I'm in the Phoenix area!

It sounds like you are describing Club West not the Foothills. #17 at the Foothills is a par 5 with a single green. At Club West #17 is an elevated par 3 with a double green. The Foothills is also in great shape!
