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.

What a bargain!

There is nothing fancy about Apache Creek but it is generally in pretty darn good shape and at a bargain price. Even in the summer heat, the greens are very good. A few wet spots from bad sprinklers but we had a great time. The greens were great. Most of the traps were decent which can't be said for lots of more expensive courses. Give it a shot.

Love the course

Great shape, have been playing since 2004 here. Winter rates are to high for me but the summers are awsome. 1 complaint,this year theres an attendant constantly watering while you tee off on various holes,as well I wish the courses would require proper attire again.

Nice course but what’s most important was lacking.

Nice course, but really need to work on customer relations. Should be welcoming and have mannerly friendliness. No one seemed to be happy that golfers were there or interested that they were there.

My wife is a new golfer and it was great for her to play. I also enjoyed the course as it is wide open and you can drive the ball a little extra.

One of my favorite courses

This is one of my favorite courses. I have never had a bad time playing here (except the time the wind was 30+mph).
I buy the summer pass every year and usually play as earlier in morning as possible, ave round takes 2.5 hrs.
Courses is always in good shape.

Starter and friends

We had a foursome for a 9 a.m. tee time. At 8:40 we saw that the starting area was significantly backed up. We went to get in the staging area and found that the starter was letting "his friends who play there a lot" tee off with no tee time. He sent 2 foursomes off and then a scheduled tee time. Then at 8:58 he was already behind and two more groups of his "friends that play there" just drove up and he put them in front of more scheduled tee times. We finally teed off about 9:40. I even asked him what was the point of tee times, and he just said they play "a lot". We have been playing that course for a few years, and lately this is the third time this has happened. The starter DID NOT CARE about tee times or keeping the flow. He even said, "well, they play fast".... by the end of 7 holes, they were two holes behind the group in front of them. Needless to say, it made for an extremely long round of golf. I know the group behind us won't play there again, and neither will we. There a a few better courses within a few miles that will get our money. Unless you are OK with watching other folks play your tee time, DON"T GO THERE

Terrible tee time management

Got to the course and saw that there was a men’s league queued up at the 1st tee. Hit a bucket of warm ups and the queue was not getting smaller. Heard the starter tell another group that they normally have 20 in the league but today they brought 27...so I guess they didn’t need tee times. At that point we were already 20 mins behind and I could see the pace of play was headed for the 5-6 hour mark. Went to the pro shop to get my money back and, regarding the delay, they said it was a holiday. The point of tee times is you have a time. Don’t let your men’s league manage your course as it has scared this regular. Went to another course and played a 4 hour round...on a holiday!

Nice, friendly, accommodating staff. Even though it was a holiday weekend, I could start at my leisure when I was ready. Nice, complete practice facility with practice range, chipping area and two putting greens. Great price for a real nice course. Fairways were nice and green with no dead spots or dried areas. Greens were fast, faster some courses I've played in AZ. Typical Arizona desert style course. Played from the tips as always and had no issues with course design, layout or condition. I'd play this course again without any hesitation or concern.

Another round at a frequently visited course.

Course for this time of year is good. A few 4somes hitting 2 to 3 balls off each tee box slowed things down but all in all a good day to be out on the course.

Always enjoyable

Staff took all appropriate precautions relative to COVID-19. Also friendly and efficient. Course in good condition especially for late May. Played as a threesome in 3 hours 15 minutes. All I've come to expect at this course, in the very best sense. Will certainly play again next season.

Desert course

I thoroughly enjoyed playing this course. I played the blue championship tees which makes the course fairly long. It is a flat course without any obstacles or hazards.
