First off, I guess no one worked on Presidents Day because everywhere my group checked was booked and only had late afternoon tee times. So we were LUCKY to have found Aguila Golf Course.

We play from the tips and the course played all of the 7000 yards listed on the card because it had rained over the weekend so the fairways were lush and over seeded. Just beautiful for February in the Desert. Every fairway was immaculate!!! I wish I could take this course back to the DFW area with me. Its nice to hit an iron from the fairway and have create a divot.

Now the greens, well get ready because they are really, really fast. On our day, the were really slick. The practice putting area did not do them justice, I admit that it took 3 holes to get comfortable with the speed of the greens. They were amazing.

I recommend this course to anyone in the Phoenix area who wants to play a really good course and not have to pay a steep price. By comparison, today we played McCormick Ranch in Scottsdale and the while the course conditions were good, the greens were not as good as Aguila.

This is a serve yourself no frill municipal course, the course was decent even after all the rain during the week end. It took us 6 hours to play 18 holes, I think the Marshall had a snooze with a foresome or two at some point. Carts where old and we just made it to the clubhouse, the foursome in front of us where not so lucky.

I played a few of the higher end courses in the Phoenix area on my trip and this course was as good as those ones but significantly cheaper. Thus, great value here! Decently challenging and good conditions all around - highly recommend it!

The fairways and greens were very thin. The greens rolled pretty well but there little grass to spin the ball. The mountain views were great and not having homes all around the course was a plus.

I would rate this a 3 star.

Course was in decent shape greens were fast only saw the beer cart once for as slow as it was she could have made a killing. One of the ponds was full of dead carp and stunk really bad. 5 hours is way too long to play, several players quit.

This was a very enjoyable scenic course with views of South Mountain. Unfortunately, the pace of play was so slow we could not finish the last two holes before dark. With a 2:26 tee time, we should have had plenty of time to finish but had to wait on every hole. One of the local players in our group said he had never experienced such slow play at this course so hopefully others won't have the same experience in that regard.
