The Future's Course is part of the 500 Club golf facility. The 500 Club is a championship length course and the Futures Course was built as a nine-hole, par-28 complement that is ideal for beginners. Although the course is enjoyable for players of all ages and abilities, more advanced players will probably want to use the lengthier and more challenging original 500 Club course. The golf course features beautiful views and excellent course conditions. There are also sand bunkers for some challenge. In the summer months, the 500 Club facility is perfect for families since kids play on a no-fee basis and adults can use the other course.

wear a helmet

my first time playing this course, and i would say on at least 7 times there were people from other holes in my fairway hitting their shots. and i have no idea where they were hitting or how they got there. but this is DANGEROUS. some interesting holes and some pretty ones also, but the greens were really in awful condition.

the greens fee is definitely NOT worth the quality and condition of this course. i will NOT be back

Narrow and bone dry

Very disappointed by the following:

Price was higher than expected. Price quoted on-line did not include taxes.

Was told fairways were wide.That is if you include the hard-pan rough and alleged desert (really just dirt).

Driving into dirt was forbidden and shut off carts.

Course was ultra dry from rough to fairways to greens.

Forced to have bag-boy clean clubs as they were being cleaned while putting on 18th hole. Adds yet another unecessary expense.

Not worth the high price

WAY TOO EXPENSIVE for what it is!!! The greens are awful, the pace is super slow and the course is boring.. A lot if the holes are identical . Won't be back

Great value

I have played this course for over 15 years and in all that time I have never had a bad experience. As far as golf courses go in the metro Phoenix area, this one is a gem. The staff is incredibly nice.

Mancation circuit

This course has been on my Mancation circuit ever since I played it back in '04. I have always returned to this course on regular basis because it is a fun track. The course is challenging, yet rewarding. The greens aren't ridiculously crazy, the fairways are generous and the elevation changes are mild. The course is a bit out of the way so that really helps with the pace of play. Great course to return year after year.
