I like to squeeze in a quick nine from time to time so I thought I would play Adobe Dam. Well what I got was some pretty poor playing conditions. I played Encanto 9 last weekend and the greens and fairways were pretty green. This place however was yellow with green spots. The pace of play was hindered by kids goofing off on the course. The only thing that was a positive was the greens. The ball rolled nicely and they seemed to be the only thing kept. Overall if you want to play a quick nine go to Encanto or somewhere else and don't bother with the kids and poor conditions at Adobe Dam.

I just got my rear end kicked by Quintero yesterday. I wanted a quick easy nine to regain some confidence before I threw all of my clubs away. :) This course was in excellent shape, except for the greens. The Tee boxes were mostly flat and had good grass. The fairways were in great shape (better than Quintero). The greens were smooth and had great grass. They were just incredibly shaggy!! Like putting on my living room carpet.

The only issue I really had was hat the round was not a bad price. $8.50 for 9. The cart, on the other hand..... $10. Then I finished my round in 45 min. I asked if I could play another nine. I was told that it would be an additional $6 for another nine. Ok no prob. But, If I wanted the cart still, it was another $10. That would have made it $34.50 for 18 holes. WOW!!! They also did not allow any warm up balls for free either. It was another $4 for that. All in all, I paid $22.50 for nine holes that are so short, I finished in 45min.

They need to reevaluate there pricing and they would have a whole lot more people playing. Not many people want to walk, even a short course, in 109 temps.

I have used the practice facilities multiple times after moving to North Phoenix but had never played the nine hole course. There are two Par 4s, 1 Par 5, and 6 Par 3s. The Par 4s and Par 5s had good turf in the fairways and all of the greens were in good conditions (no dead spots and they had been cut well). This is a great little course to practice your short game and get a little exercise walking the course.

You'll love it if you're a beginner. A good practice facility but the range balls are darn near golf balls without dimples so you get some pretty weird ball flights.

I frequent this course often (about twice a week), both the driving range and the course itself. The pros of the course are that it can be cheap if you get the right time. Thats it. The cons, the greens are shaggy. There are many dry spots. The tee boxes are often lumpy or missing grass. Another con, one of the "owners" can be crusty (not the guy named Pete. Pete seems really down to earth). Yesterday I tried to start on the back half of the course (which was WIDE OPEN) because the 1st tee had 4 groups backed up. One of the "owners" yelled at me and told me to get back on the 1st tee. He didnt care about all the groups lined up on the 1st tee. I might be in the wrong, honestly I dont know, but I was trying to speed up the pace of play and help everyone out. Anyways, being someone who plays here all the time and I bring other people here to play with me, I didn't appreciate being reprimanded in the manner that I was. Take this review for what its worth, like I said, its a good low key place to practice your short game and maybe I was in the wrong for trying to play the back half first.

We thoroughly enjoyed our round at Adobe Dam. The fairways and greens were well kept, and the pace of play very reasonable.

We do recommend that new straps for the pull-along golf carts be installed. The old straps no longer have Velcro fasteners that hold; they are worn out and need to be replaced.

Great course for persons who want to play golf for fun--no pressure, no fancy amenities.

This is a course that you take someone to that wants to get into golfing. They can loose all the balls they want because if they go in the rough or thicket they will find someone else s ball. A good warm up before an actual round on a nicer more expensive course down the street. Some day Pulte or KB homes will make an offer that is acceptable on this ground and what a shame but Pulte or KB will build a hundred thousand cracker box homes on it with 10 foot backyards and zero clearance. Welcome to capitalism!!!

I would never nominate Adobe Dam as the nicest golf course. Does it help you with your game? Absolutely. I tend to go here when I don't have time to hit up a full 18 and enjoy it every time.

Lets say your getting ready to play a round of golf with your buddies and you have not played in a while . You don't want laughter to drown out the sound of the birds on the tee box so you go here first .<br/> Most of the people that show up here are not pros and don't belong to clubs. Let's face they are hackers like you and take a small bucket full of muligans on every hole. You shoot about a 40 on 9 holes here and feel good about it. The course conditions are below average and there is no cart girl in hot pants selling you six dollar bud lights. The prarie dogs are your only company if you play as a single.

The greens had been punched and were really slow! my biggest complaint, however, were the mosquitoes!! I'm a Phoenix native and I've never seen so many mosquitoes in my life! I talked to a couple of other golfers on the course, and they were offered repellant. I wasn't offered and also the mosquitoes were not even mentioned...

I played this course for cheaper than a bucket of balls, but you get what you pay for. The summer heat has taken its toll on some fairways and greens. Overall its still a good place to practice your short game for a cheap rate.

The driving range was almost pure dirt and dead grass, poorly maintained and expensive for balls. The course was riddled with holes, and there were a couple par 3's that were less than 100 yards making this a quick course. Small greens made of turf. We paid $14 per person to golf this. (Not even worth it on a phoenix summer day.) I can say I won't be back as even $14 was a complete rip off.
