The golf course at the San Marcos Golf Resort boasts an impressive list of past players that includes presidents and celebrities. The golf course is nestled on a property in downtown Chandler that is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Although it has a desert landscape, the course is still lush with a canal that runs through it, a lake, and plush Bermuda grass greens, the former two creating water hazards that come into play on several holes. The San Marcos Golf Resort course is challenging with each hole having at least three bunkers. The two most difficult holes on the golf course are two lengthy par 4s, the fourth and the 10th.

Great Layout, Poor Maintenance

I visited in early Sept, on a beautiful 110 degree day. Course was beautiful and we had no issues getting started, however bumpy and slow greens marred the first few holes. When I finally found the bunker, the sand was matted and wet, impossible to hit from. I understand this is part of the times but it seems like NO ONE has raked these bunkers since March. Pace was great and the fairways were in great condition (aside from the lawnmower that wouldnt move for us on 9 and followed us the entire fairway with the engines on.

Six packs for beer, not for groups on a golf course

Course overall in good to very good condition. Greens a little slow but tee boxes and fairways good. Real problem was the group of six allowed to play ahead of us. While they pretty much stayed in touch with the group ahead of them, waiting for 6 people to clear the fairways (looking all over for their mishit tee shots) and also the green. We waited on every hole starting with number 7 after having a two hole cushion to start. Marshall was nice, but clueless.

Greens

My only negative is that the greens were bumpy, slow and had aeration lines

Slow again

I used to like this course, but lately they are always behind on tee times and the pace of play is terrible. We waited on every single hole. The greens looked like they hadn't been mowed in several days. If they had, they sure weren't cut very tight.

It was a good...lil hot but good day. Greens could have used a lil bit of work but nothing to go overboard about. Cant beat it for the price in the middle of the day.

First time at this course!

The layout of the course was nice & it was kept up very well. We did enjoyed driving through the neighborhood to get through different holes to provide an engaging experience with the community. Everyone appeared friendly and the staffs working on shift was very friendly. One of our teammates accidentally left their wedge & the staff attentively held on to it and gave it back to use. They even offered to clean our clubs themselves!

I would definitely come back to the course. Oh yeah, and animals! It was very relaxing seeing all the birds in their environment peacefully and plenty of bunnies running around.
