Over all the course was in good condition, green ran true, coupl of hard spots on the faiway, but that's Arizona, it's not over rated and you get your money worth.

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!!

First time playing Orange Tree and I thoroughly enjoyed it. A good mix of holes providing a nice variety of challenges. Course conditions were very good as well. All and all a good day and we will put it on the list of courses to return to.

The course and the conditions were absolutely phenomenal today. Considering it's May 1 that is definitely a testament to how well this course is maintained on a regular basis. Beautiful Parkland Layout which was very playable for my wife who is a beginner......but the greens were challenging enough to give an avid player like myself a good test. We have been here for the last two weeks and this is the best condition course we've played, although Stone Creek which is nearby, was also in great shape....but it was a little more challenging for a newer golfer.

We definitely will be back!

Many years ago, this course was was a popular teaching and playing destination for those of the Sam Snead generation, including the Slammer. It's now tired, and minimally kept at a level where green fees are higher than acceptable and service is all about maximizing profit. The carts are old, the bunkers are hard, the tee boxes are harder, and the greens are pockmarked by ball marks. Play here only if you get a great rate, and be prepared for a 5 hour round, as I've had about 3/4 of my games here this year. Lastly, beware of errant range balls while playing hole 1.

fairways and greens were in very good condition, the bunkers were a little crispy with hard sand from water, good layout with nice variation among the holes, can be challenging at times with greenside bunkers and sloped greens

If you're in the fairway, you're ok. Bunkers are hard-pack sand and many areas where we would consider it to be 'rough' are bare and hard ground. Also, private citizens walking their dogs on the cartpath and kids fishing in one of the green-side ponds was a bit disconcerting. We've played here before and felt it was a fair value for the price but this last round left us feeling like we didn't want to return.
