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.

Still was a good experience

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.

Had a great time. Course was in good shape, staff was accommodating. The two gentlemen we were paired with made the round enjoyable, and gave us good tips for golf in the area. I would play this course again.

It was a warm day but after we passed a slower foursome, things cooled off as we were able to scoot along at a nice clip and we were doing less standing around in the heat. Good value for a nice layout

The course in very nice with wide fairways and reasonable rough so here was seldom much difficulty getting into position for you shot into the green. The greens were protected by bunkers on both sides so the second or third shorts were the most challenging. Greens were in good shape and not too fast. Overall a fair course and very pleasant to play.

The course is in good shape. The layout is great. It's hard to find a round in Phoenix right now for under $50. Worth the money for a good time to mess around with the buddies.

We have played every year for 10 years and this time we found the course specially the back nine is poor condition. Extremely dry, could hardly push a tee in the ground! Also we had a very slow group in front of us and a clear hole ahead of them and nothing was done about it. The marshal was there but not doing his job. Very disappointed . We are Shell Gacation owners staying at the Legacy for 6 weeks and have always enjoyed the Orang Tree course in the past.

The course was in good shape tee box to green. Pace was good as it was busy Friday. Stay in the fairway as the rough was hard as a rock. The draft beer for the price in the plastic cup ? Overall a good experience.
