We had a mid-morning tee time on a Saturday so I thought it would be busy butI didn't expect a 5 hour round of golf on a faily short easy course.

Golf course is 27 holes and in excellent shape. Greens are fast and true. Fairways are lush and rough is manageable. Only negatives are golf carts don't have GPS and there is no full size driving range. Great experience for the $$.

I liked the course. Summer grass just starting to grow. The greens were hard to read and lacked consistency, some greens were bumpy and slow while others were fast and unpredictable. I would like to play the course again. Distance markings were few and far between.

Course was ok. Personnel need training. It was our first time there and felt like we're were an interruption to their routine. Fortunately we only had to deal with them at the start and end.

The course and staff were phenomenal, only complaint is that the pace got choked up on the King course. Could have just been the couple in front of us, no reason a 4some should keep pace with a 2some. Great course, would definitely go back

Besides a beautiful day in Phoenix the golf was just as good. A visitor to Phoenix the course was in great shape. One nine had their greens verti cut but still great to play. Everything top notch will play again at with a decent price. GOOD work Starfi really and staff.

Non desert course with lots of trees and water. In good shape overall, traps could use some work. Greens were fast with a lot of flags planted on slopes. Missing the flag on the wrong side makes for a lot of 3 putts.

Course was in excellent condition and greens very smooth especially given traffic as very busy. We enjoyed breakfast and happy hour late lunch out on terrace after lunch in very pretty setting. Only recommendation would be better signage to next holes for visitors.

Probably a little tougher course than its 114 slope rating would suggest. Water comes into play on a few holes. Surrounded by beautiful homes.
