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.

Great value and reasonably good 19th hole food make this place a great spot to meet my golf buddies from queen creek Course was very playable for early summer. Wide open desert on most holes and a fun island green par three for a wedge shot

A real stumper. Hot this time of year in Az. Course was not very busy. Took 4.5 hours to play as a twosome. 3 groups of four had every hole backed up. At times waited 15 to 18 minutes to get off the tee box. The slowest group refused to let faster groups of 4 play through. Where was the Marshall? Every hole at least 4 golf carts deep waiting to tee off. Several golfers skipped 3 holes to get in front of the slowest group holding everyone up. Sometimes a stern warning needs to be given to those holding others from ENJOYING their round .

Just getting back to playing after a year off. I like this course because it gives you adequate fairway to target and if you miss the desert gives you a shot. Does that help your score, i think so but also tunes you up to stay on the green. A fun little track.

Course was great for anytime of year especially late May

Paid 3$ for a beer, maybe other courses could take note as that is one more reason why we will now include this track in our rotation.

This time of year, it can be tough to find courses that are worth the greens fees, even though the greens fees in May can be near bottom of the range. Anyway, played at 1pm, and completed the round in two hours. The course is in good condition, particularly the greens, and this course provides a great alternative to Bear Creek, Trilogy at Power Ranch, or Western Skies, all of which are nearly unplayable right now on the southeast side of the Valley.

This isn't one of the nicest courses in the area. It is just ok. Lots of dog legs. You are either on fairways or desert. No in-between. It was close to me so that was a major factor in playing here. Greens we're good. Most had that frontwards slant to them. Nothing major wrong with the course but nothing outstanding either. Very flat desert floor type course.
