Always enjoy playing at Paradise Valley. A few weeks ago after the biblical proportions of rain I was amazed at the condition of the course!!! The grounds crew does an excellent job maintaining the course. Yesterday's round didn't disappoint me. Fairways were great and greens rolled pretty good. I'll definitely be back. Wish I was a Fairfield resident!!

We played a 5 hour round on a Tuesday after paying full price. When I asked at check in I was told everything was moving along good. Not so as we waited behind four foursomes at the 3rd hole.

After the large amount of rain we had received in the past few weeks the course was very playable and really in very good condition All Things Considered!!!! The driving range which they use as a floodplain in instances of excessive rain was closed still and should be considered, prior to going!!

Thought we would have a delay because of fog. Got to the course and it was beautiful, sun was out and shining, no wind, and very few ppl out at 0730 in the morning. Once we left the first tee didn't see anyone in front or behind us. Greens were a little slow at first then sped up by the end of the round. Couldn't of asked for a better round. Great company always helps.

I recommend you try this, super friendly staff, small greens, water, creeks etc. You must control your ball off the tee but not super tight, just gotta play smart.

Played with my 81 year old father in law who is a 22 and I am a 4 and it was fun for both our skill levels if you play the appropriate tees

Downside is tee'd off at 12:24 on a Saturday , 5 hour round; I advise playing early.That said it was still fun!

Good Job Paradise Valley I will be back!

With golfnow prices you get a good value on a deceptively difficult layout. The greens have gotten better over the last year and roll pretty fair. Stay out of that poison oak though.

Every time that I have played Paradise valley, the greens keepers have always been out there working on the course. when we are ready to play they are polite and wait for us to play. As far as the pro staff goes, they have always been helpfull and accomendateing in any way they can. About the restruant staff. They are great.
