Every time I play at the Foothills, I have had a great time. The course was in very good shape, and all who were at work there were extremely pleasant and helpful.

I have NEVER been less than happy with Foothills, and I recommend every thing about it highly !

This was our first course of the week while in Phoenix and it really tested our 6 month layoff from golf. We got matched up with a pro who came to qualify for Waste Management PGA and was still in area. This really made us play hard. Grat layout and good looking course. Fun track.

The Good: the o.s guys are Great,very friendly and helpful as is the pro shop staff,The Bad: this courses is in horrible shape no grass on the fairways Lots of Bald spots on the greens, and very bumpy,need to be punched or something to get the grass back in shape and growing only good green is 17 due to it having a double green it is ok and in fair shape:the ugly the tees boxes have no level spots or areas they need to be sanded and closed off to make them better... i remember when this used to be one of the better golf courses in the greater Phoenix area...NO MORE ...Sad,Sad SAD

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!

The condition of the course was better than the last time I played, but could still use some work. Greens were rough, and there were patches of grass that need to be repaired. We played on the Sunday during the Masters so course traffic was light, pace of play was good. Starter was very friendly and overall staff was excellent. Course conditions could be better.

This desert course has great service. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful.

Course maintenance is lacking. Conditions are like a cheap municipal course. There are tall weeds and the rough is really patchy in some areas. Greens were really slow due to some sort of cross hatching. Fairways and tee boxes are in great shape.

Pace of play was fine at 4:20. It would slow down, then speed up after the marshall went through and prodded the groups ahead. Usually stacked up a couple of groups at the park threes.

I'd go back, but only if I could confirm that maintenance is improved.

We have played here several times now, and find the course a pleasant change from some of the other "snobbish" high end courses we've tried. The layout is challenging, the greens roll true, the fairways are nice, and the staff is very friendly. We will be back to play again.

Had not played her for a few years when the maintenance was down, but the course has been brought back to life. Fairways were fine and greens good, with very, vexingly, challenging pin positions. Wind complicated matters as I am an AZ golfer used to perfect conditions. My bad.

I had written off this course but will be sure to come back now that it has been nicely resuscitated.

Course was in excellent shape with ability to allow player to play it as long as desired. There were just enough hazards to make golfer think about were they were going. The greens were very good but speeds varied on some versus others. The mountains in the background made the course more picturesque and a pleasure to play. All in all a fun course to play.
