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 fantastic golf round with friends. Very busy and were delayed 20min at the 1st tee but once we teed off on 2we never waited or had anyone play up on us the rest of the day. Greens are unbelievable true and challenging. It’s a desert course but the maintenance team has done a great job thinning the shrubbery. I’ll be back again it’s a great time and a great course.

My first time.golf here in February. I thought the course was in pretty good condition. The greens were decent too. Can be a bit of a challenge if you don’t stay in the green stuff. I tell people that have never played a desert course to check this one out.Nice view of Superstition Mountain nearby.

For $31 plus fees ($37) I was happy. Wouldn't want to pay much more. As with most tracks, if you stay on the fairway it's great because off the fairways is hard dirt and the ball runs like a tarmac plus the hard dirt is like hitting off a tarmac. Greens were good and they have a grass tee driving range. I'd go back for the right price point

With desert area and the wind is was very dusty at times. Hard to play out off that desert area. Safer to move your ball back to the fairway(grass) and save damaging your clubs. Take a stroke or not !
