Great value on a Hot Deal from Golfnow, but disappointed when we tried for a replay and would have paid more for 9 holes than we did for 18. Still a great time.

With an even mix of par 3's and 4's, this municipal course is surprisingly well kept, if a bit short. But nice integration with the surrounding desert scape combined with some interesting elevation changes nevertheless make this a pleasant playing experience. Located on the final approach for Sky Harbor, noisy flyovers are de rigeur, a potentially unpleasant experience for the easily distracted.

Our tee time was late morning. Good drives made it easy but the greens are usually perched atop a rounded mesa. A very challenging 62 par course.

This is a real "target golf" course that will challenge and tune up your short game. There are a number of Par 4 holes but the majority are Par 3 holes with where you had better hit it straight if you have an hope of making par! All in all a great place to test yourself with your irons and short game.

Rolling Hills was recently renovated. They did a great job with the fairways and the greens, all now in excellent condition. The front 9 is now the back 9. My guess is they switched to improve the speed of play. The course was empty so I couldn't evaluate speed of play.

On arriving, we were sent to the 1st tee which said 10 on the sign. Played what we thought was the back nine (in error) first as the signs said 10 - 18 but discovered coming back to hole one - it also said hole 10 and was indeed the back nine even though the rest of the holes was labelled holes 2 through 9! Confusing or what! - still not sure the order we played it in. Holes 1 to nine (but labelled 10-18) were in rough shape in my opinion. The back nine much better. If the course was in good shape it would be worth the money, but lots of work needed in the fairways on the front nine.

Sugggest that the yardage & score cards be updated to reflect the proper holes. Confusing to say the least.

Otherwise liked the course very much.
