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.

An old Orange Plantation, soi hear, this course is all grass. Fairways are fair, not too narrow, and enough rough to keep an errant shot still in play, and not in someones yard. Course was in great shape. Played just after sunrise, so first few holes play directly into the sun. Greens had dew until late on the way out, but when dry, were quick but fair. Staff was great, no complaints with any of them. Ranger was friendly, and since the three of us played faster than average, he had no reason to have issues with us. No group in front of us to slow us down, which was great. 330, 345 18 hole pace today in our group.

This was our third time at the course. It did not live up to the memory. Staff did not seem very excited about anything. Certianly did not leave me with a good customer experience. Pace of play was very slow, nearly 4.5 hours. Lots of leaves on the course that seemed to have been there for days, not hours. Greens are in great shape however. May not be a choice the next time around.

Several pins were placed on the front of the green. Our group had several putts from above the pin and our putts rolled several feet past the cup, and on a few occasions rolled off the green. The greens are excellent, firm and fast. Our putting woos were ours and not the courses. Every time I come to Arizona, I look forward to playing Orange Tree.

A/Christian was out and facilities were tired

Starter was grouchy and the tee boxes were very uneven. The rest of the course was in good shape and pace of play excellent. The whole Resort needs a makeover.

Enjoyed the course and the price was right. The fairways and greens were in good shape and the pace of play was excellent. Lots of trees and even saw a few Bats as we were finishing up in the evening. I will be back and recommend this course for golfers at all levels since it is moderately challenging.
