Course is not in great shape, but then you are only paying a small fee, so no reason to complain. If you are looking for a day out to practice hitting drives and getting the ball onto the green, then this is a good practice day. Greens are not in good shape and much of the rough is so high that you will not be able to find your ball. Course personnel are wonderful and helpful and the clubhouse and other amenities are clean and nice. Just don't expect a lot as the course is not getting enough play and the level of maintenance shows that minimal effort is being made.

Got there early for 6:45am tee time so we could grab breakfast. No breakfast available until after 7am. Snack shack closed all day so nothing at the turn either. Cart girl had hardly any food and no bloody Mary mix. Pace was ok. Conditions decent.

As I live in Scottsdale, this is a good go-to course. The price is usually reasonable and the course is consistently in good condition. The driving range and putting/chipping areas are adequate. The staff is always friendly and professional. The course itself always plays harder than it looks as the greens are mostly elevated and trap-protected. Enough water to make it interesting. One negative is slow play as they tend to pack them in. A positive is the attractive cart girls who entertain you while waiting on the t box!

Orange Tree serves it's purpose for the Scottsdale area. It is an older facility that offers fair pricing. The venue has some bare spots and areas in need of maintenance. The traps were very good, greens were good (slow due to the summer stress) and the fairways were good in most areas.

Orange Tree is basically a flat golf course. It has very little undulation.

All said, I enjoyed the day and will return.

The course is set in North Scottsdale and is well kept course. I was surprised on what a great day we received on the app. I walked in the club house signed in and had no problem at all with tee times and walked right on granted it was on a Monday. I paid $8.00 for 18 holes with a cart, my wife and I both played and had lunch afterwards which was very good. What a great deal!!!

Thoroughly enjoyed our game. Enhanced by the continual maintenance of the course and no interruptions to play. Enjoyed the course lay out. Added bonus as a two ball to complete our game well under the time allowed. Slow play was not a feature on this course.

The overall layout is perfect for a high handicap older age player!

The fairways and greens were like concrete. No ranger was to be found.

Clearly caters to a resort guest.

I would not recommend this course and will not play or book a tee time again!!
