Rating 69.4

Although there are many other desert golf courses in the Phoenix area, Apache Creek Golf Club offers one challenging championship course that requires the use of every club. The golf course features wide open fairways and undulating greens that are sloped back to front, some are also double-tiered. There are also numerous sand and grass bunkers protecting the fairways and greens. Extensive mounding on the course cause uneven lies and water hazards come into play on a few holes. The most difficult of the several demanding holes on this golf course, is the lengthy par-5, 10th hole. Apache Creek Golf Club also boasts two practice greens, a pitching and chipping green with a sand trap, and a large driving range with various targets.

Just Ok

Pace of play was good but you get what you pay for. Had several errant shots from other golfers come close to us. The layout with all of the rocky gravel is hard on golf balls and even harder on clubs. Doubt I will play here again.

Surprised

First time there, on time to tee off , played in 3:50 on a Sunday, nice. Greens very fast, and run true. For the price, definitely worth it, will bring 2 other players next week when I return. Don’t miss the fairways or you will pay for it. Great course to get your game together if you haven’t been out much.

Course is great

The course is great and I have played it many times. I typically play in the summer when it is roughly $15 per round. I don't believe the course is worth the $54. I am also a little frustrated that it cost me $21 to confirm the reservation on GolfNow and that did not reduce the amount I had to pay at the course. So, in essence, this round of golf cost me $65. For that price and the slow pace of play getting through 15 holes in about 5 hours it is not worth it at all. If I am going to spend this much in the future, I will be going to other courses.

A good day with a friend

While I did not play very well, it was none-the-less an enjoyable round.

For a desert course, it was in very good condition. Tee boxes were good and the greens well maintained. Fairways were not as thin as in the past. Sand traps were rather disappointing in that they were not soft - hard as a rock about one-half inch below the surface.

Staff were friendly and welcoming.

I will play there again - hopefully better!
