My wife and I like to play different courses in Northern California where we live. This is the third time I have played this course and it was decidedly the most windy. I hate windy conditions and my game is not suited to this condition. However the course was in excellent condition, the pace of play was acceptable (4.75 hours to play). We will come back again and I would recommend this course for others. The difficulty is moderate, but the wind made it more difficult. I think players of all levels can play this course and have a good time.

Course is in great shape after all the spring rain. The pace of play was decent, but still was a bit slow throughout the whole round. It was 98 degrees out and one of the marshals was out giving out ice cold towels and refreshed it twice before I finished; so that was pretty awesome.

Paradise Valley Golf Course is a visually pleasing golf course with broad fairways, large greens, huge bunker complexes. The layout is logical and well designed you definitely get to see the landscape features.

The clubhouse is great with lots of seating, good food, variety in beverages and friendly, responsive staff.

For a heavily played course it was in good condition. The greens were medium fast and challenging. A nice, mature layout with some huge doglegs around water. All level of players can enjoy this course

Never played course, visitor from Texas, register as a single, teamed up with a group never met, began play at 7:30am., cloudy/windy conditions, course in great condition, fairways nice and plush, greens fast with few obstructions, enough water, sand and ruff to challenge your judgement, pace very appropriate. With advise from fellow golfers able to navigate course. Overall, for a public course it's a jewel. Ground crew has done a wonderful job. Not to forget to mention, course settles in foothills, adding to the pleasure of playing golf, and enjoying surroundings. Yes, I will play here again!

This course is always in great shape. The fairways are cut well, the rough is just right, the greens are always perfect.

The staff are excellent, the restaurant/bar is good too.

The driving range faces the east, so in the morning, you cannot see your practice shots very well. The practice putting surface is very nice and they also have a practice area just for chipping.

I keep going back because I love this course.
