I find Starfire quite challenging for an older golfer playing the white tees. I like the layout, the course is in good shape, and it’s a good value. Though our foursome did frequently need to wait for the group ahead, we still finished the 18 quickly - less than 4 hours and 15 minutes. I recommend this course.

Pace was good. Course was wet. Greens were pretty beat up and extremely slow. Workers on many holes even though we teed off late morning. Duck poop everywhere on hawk course. Disappointing

Starfire was a good course, with pretty good upkeep and an interesting layout. Round seemed slow (there was a 5 some ahead) but it only took 4:15. You should be under 4 on this course. Only 6000 yards from tips.

Positives: Nice layout, good condition, fairly easy for seniors or new golfers, good warmup round to start trip for lower handicaps, perfect location, great staff.

Negatives: A bit on the easy side if under 10 cap, close proximity on some holes to houses, range uses limited flight balls (still better than no range), course was a bit wet from overnight watering.

Overall for $50 and under a great option if you are in scottsdale and looking for a good quick round that isn't the killer some of the other courses are.

The course was great but my game not so good. Not their fault. I just lost my swing that round. The course was well manicured and the pace of play was very good. The marshall was great and really kept things moving along. I’d recommend this course for anyone. A lot of golf hostory there.

I checked a number of reviews for this course and got what I expected. Course was in pretty good shape overall - no complaints. Greens were soft enough to hold good shots and medium on speed scale, which suited me perfectly, I'm not into super fast greens. Not your standard layout; King nine has 3 of each (3,4 & 5's) and Hawk nine is only a par 34. Was chilly when I first arrived, but warmed up nicely. Glad I didn't book any earlier than 10:00am.

We had people holding us up but still let a twosome play through, they seemed in a rush. The Marshall then proceeds to give us a bollocking because we’re not keeping up. Apart from that, great day of golf and will play again.

Played this course again. Never a disappointment. Fairways were neat and green. Greens were cut close, fast and in great shape. This is a great mid length course for all skill levels. Rented clubs and still scored under 80. Very pleased with the staff, the course layout and the price. We will be back on our next visit to Az
