Wish some one would have mentioned that the greens were just aerated and sanded. The course and greens were very dry. The snack bar was closed (No proprietor?) Very limited beverage selection in pro shop. No ice available.

The green had been punched and they did not use enough sand to fill them up. Could not hit s put straight as the holed would make the ball bounce all around. What happened to the sand?

Reasonable price. Course condition were good. My buddy and I were paired up with a couple guys who took a while to find their swing so course marshals were asking us to pick up the pace, as they should, and once we got going, no more problems.

Golfnow needs to do a better job of posting aerification notices. It's incredibly frustrating to drive 35 miles and find the greens punched. There was absolutely no warning of this on golfnow when I made the time. I called golfnow to ask why there wasn't a warning and they just passed the blame to the course. That's garbage. It's GolfNow's duty to keep up with the courses schedules so that their customers aren't disappointed. I see reviews quite often complaining about this. No wonder there are courses dumping golfnow and getting their own tee time apps or websites etc. STEP IT UP GOLFNOW!

I played this course and expected it to be fine. I checked the Phoenix Golf Course web site to look for the aeration schedule. It said the aeration was scheduled for June 19 thru June 21, Guess what? The greens were plugged and sanded. The sanding was also poorly done on the back nine. The cafe was also closed, no cart service, and no cold water on the course. The Phoenix City golf courses have raised their prices and the care for the Phoenix golfer has definitely gone down!!!

Large, relative flat greens, with a couple of exceptionally sloped and difficult ones. All were fast.

Desert area, but course fairly well maintained, including bunkers.

This is a good municipal golf course. The grounds crew does a good job with watering, mowing, etc... The greens were a little on the quick side which I liked.

The course was a little rough but still played fair. Nothing great in the layout, a few short holes that only made sense if they ran out of development money. Range ok at best, many balls were beyond usable but greens reflect quickness of course. Pace of play was a reflection of skill of golfers ahead and lack of starter, "go when you want". When the twosome ahead can't get around in under 4 hours, it gets old real quick. I would suggest the course as a last resort, and the price is great, that would make it a bit easier to take.

It was not the most prepared clubhouse. Had to make a cooler out of a box. With 4 holes left the sprinkler system came on. When we mentioned it to the clubhouse person, he claimed he didn't know why. They claim it should have started well after our round. They were locking the rest rooms up before everyone was off the course. Unfriendly staff, low budget course, over priced. Sorry but last week will play here.

Where do I start this one? Pro shop was a giant cluster and staff behind counter reflected that. Pro shop is tiny and there were easily 15-18 people milling around or waiting to check in. My friend and I booked a HOTDEAL and other 2 players that booked (no clue who they were) never showed. Yippie, we get to play as twosome amongst foursomes. Oh and someone in pro shop screwed up so they shoved a threesome between us and 4some in front of us. Blood boil at about a 6 brlefore even teeing off. Practice "green" was brown and felt like a sidewalk beneath your feet. I asked the starter if all greens on course were in same condition he said proudly, "yep, we have very fast greens here!" I said it's a burned out pc of dirt w no grass, how do you call it a green? He shrugged his shoulders. The course is entirely hard packed granite, they must be saving a fortune on water. Layout is not forgiving to start but fairways are so bone dry that any sideways moment of a shot results in a lost ball. "Greens" didn't hold any shot (we play proV's and r both low handicaps) and after 2 hours and 10 mins we were sitting on hole 7 waiting for group ahead of us who were waiting on group ahead of them. No ranger to be found. We drove in and left after 6 holes. What a massive waste of a day. Didn't have time to play somewhere else.

The only positive is that I can , w enthusiasm cross this goat ranch off my list of courses to replay.

Aguila must mean NO WATER ON GRASS in another language. (and before anyone that I just butt hurt cries, I'm well aware it means EAGLE. )
