Not too difficult of a course. Grass on the fairways seemed too tall for our liking. Good buy for the money.

Great course, but tee boxes had grass so tall that you could lose your dog in it unless he started barking. Same was true for grass areas just off of several greens. Tried to book a tee time twice for a large number of golfers and they never returned my calls. The bar shuts down at 6 sharp. If you have a late tee time, no beer or food when you are done. Also, not one beverage cart all afternoon. With proper management , this could have been an exceptional golf experience.

To start, no one greeted us as we arrived. No bag drop that we could see. Had to carry bags to the carts. Nobody handy to help. Check in was fine and friendly. The course was in good shape if you stayed on the over-seeded part, but after that not so good. Better time last year when we played.

One thing I love about this place is that the customer service you receive is much better than you see at some of the high dollar courses around town.

The course was in great condition. The greens were rolling well and my breakfast sandwich was tasty.

This is a fun course to play. There is some trouble but you can usually find your ball on an errant shot. Fairways were nice and green and the greens were in good condition. A little less expensive than some of the other courses in the area.

We played later in the day. Confusion at the beginning because they stopped announcing the golf groups. A couple of slow groups were ahead of us which prevented us to finish. There was no ranger on the course. We played 17 holes. Nice layout and course was in very good condition. A very good value.

I was in Phoenix on business and picked this course because of its proximity to my hotel and the cheaper rate. I was pleasantly surprised at how nice this course was since it wasn't charging an arm and a leg like other courses in the area. I paired up with two of the Men's group organizers and they were awesome to play with as we also played with a young lady that definitely slowed us down, but we all had fun. Awesome time! I will be back when I make it back to Phoenix!!!

Windy and colder than usual. Course is fairly good condition. Greens are not easy to putt. Fairways in good condition. When you play it, keep an eye out for the burrowing owls Small owls that live around the cart paths. I have played alot of courses in the valley, and this is the only course I have seen the owls.

Golf course does not have enough carts for players. Tee times were delayed over 30 minutes and went well into twilight rates. Asked pro shop for a little love and got none. Was told tee times from 1:15 on will not make it in before dark. Sunset is 6:30! Poor management and unaccommodating staff.....

This course has a lot of potential. It would benefit a lot from some more staff on hand and a couple more carts. Everyone was waiting for carts, basically a cart didn't become available until tee time when a previous group finished. The range is tiny and had very few golf balls for the amount of people that were playing yesterday. Didn't see a marshal or cart girl all day. It's clear that at the end or beginning of the day that tee boxes aren't cleared of broken tees, fairways repaired of divots, and ball marks repaired on the green properly. With a little extra love and persononell this course would be a 4 star. As of now it's so so, I wouldn't pay more than $30 to play. Lots of differents options in the valley.
