The reason I said the course has a poor design is because on quite a few holes, the fairway dips such that people on the tee cannot see where golfers are in front of them. It seems designed to set up people to get hit with tee shots. Also the greens were very fast making the putting difficult.

This course seems to have a double standard when it comes to women golfers. A friend and I played this course last weekend. We were paired up with 2 other, well experienced, female golfers for a 10am tee time. Before we got to the second hole the ranger came by and told us we had to "close the gap" and catch up to the foursome (all men) in front of us. Puzzled by the request, we complied but felt we were being rushed. Shortly after we tee'd off on the second hole another staff member came by and told us to "step it up". I felt insulted. All 4 of us have several years experience golfing. Never the less, we caught up to the group of men playing in front of us just to find ourselves having to wait on the group of 4 men playing in front of them. Not once did we see a ranger come by to ask either group of male golfers to "close the gap". I can't help but think if we were a group men, instead of women golfers we wouldn't have been treated as if we are inexperienced, first time golfers standing around sharing photo's of our kids and pets. Come on Aguila..."Wake Up". Women play just as well, if not, BETTER than men. Shame on you for stereotyping female golfers.

No one greets you at the dro gag

No ice box on the cart

No beverage cart that day

No landscaping

Fairways are far from the tee boxes

However lay out is fine because of the hills and trees

You pay for what you get. Might come back if we can't afford anything else.

I enjoy playing Aguila every time I go there. The layout is great with a good mixture of holes. Course conditions were very good. Greens had just been topdressed so they were a little sandy but were putting just fine. Pace of play was little slow for my liking. Definitely my favorite City of Phoenix municipal golf course.

This is a decent municipal course. Previous review indicated slow pace of play. We finished in 4 hours and 15 minutes which is about average. Greens hard and quick.

Only writing this because I wish someone who went through this before me, wrote a review to caution others. We had an 8;18 T-time [which we pulled up to the T- box at 8;14] to see 3-foursomes lined up to hit. drove back to the clubhouse to see if we could go off on 10. the younger guy kinda looked around and said yea, go ahead. we played the back in an hour & 45. made our way over to 1 and saw 5-6 foursomes. Back to the clubhouse where the older of the 2 guys behind the counter says, ''we told you not to go off on 10'' Don't want to dignify that with an answer so, bottom line, they let the regulars ''squeeze in'' and jack up the T-times. no starters or rangers, so if you're a regular, you can jump the line. After some back & forth with even more nonsensical drivel on the days events from the guy behind the counter, patience maxed out, we left the 9 out there and walked away. Way to many other courses out there to bother with Aguila.

This course is in great shape. Staff is very friendly and helpful. The pace of play was slow. Lots of people out with friends and having a great time on a well maintained course.

If you have the time go out and play the course. Great layout and very challenging for all levels.

Waited every hole. Pace was painful. Tee time was 1:54. Finished in the dark. Probably will not return. Enjoyed course. Nice layout. Greens were nice. Nice views. Just was not fun due to the pace.

They stack up players only 7 minutes apart so expect to feel like you're playing hole #1 constantly. For the first 11-12 holes there were 2 groups just waiting to tee off. Very disappointing and likely will not return.

Good layout with adjacent holes making it a little easier and less intimidating. Water is well placed and can sneak up on first-time players. Good fairways, tee boxes, and greens. Mostly dry everywhere else. Great practice facility with friendly staff. Will play it again.
