the course has come a long way. we love playing here. good layout, a some challenging holes. Our round consisted of two halves. We completed the front nine in 1 hour and 15 minutes but it took 3 hours for the back nine. no ranger out there to get the front groups moving. waiting on every hole is not fun and kills momentum. At the turn, we heard the guy in the shack say he hadn't seen anyone on 18 for 20 minutes...not a good sign and yet did nothing about it. I recommend the course for the layout but i sure hope you don't end up behind a slow group because there's no one out there to speed them up...

We played at 6:30 am yesterday. Had a great morning of golf. The course was in excellent condition, the experience of checking in was smooth and unique, the staff was extremely friendly and helpful! Had a very good breakfast after the round.

They are done with aeration, the greens ran true and the cost is what makes this my choice for the east valley course to play!!

Thanks again for the great attitude! It makes a difference

First off I have to say this course has a great layout and is a very attractive setting. The bad is the conditions are pretty poor. The greens and fairways were pretty poor considering everything else this course has to offer. To me this is a course where it used to be a high end club but new ownership came in and only cares about the bottom line. For as much play as this course was getting I would think you could up your maintenance budget a little. The main reason I played here is I was considering their "membership" program but I think I may stick with joining a Troon Club.

The Foothills is always fun to play. Right now they were scalping the fairways but it didn't impede play. The value for the money is exceptional. They do close the restaurant a couple of days a week, and main golf shop in the summer to save money and keep costs down for golfers.

Typical AZ desert course. Better conditions than I hoped.

Some better courses out there to play...

and some courses out there that are not as good as this one.

I would recommend playing this course to other golfers at a reasonable price.

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.

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.

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 !!!!
