After playing 3 equivalent courses in Vegas, I choose this course. Excellent greens and fairways for which the Superintendent and staff are to be commended. A very nice layout for me (HC 20) that didn't present as many hazzards as I expected. But a bit of planning is required. And, I felt so good that I'm convinced it's located in a newly discoved Vortex. In any event, I will play this course many more times over the more highly priced 'scenic' ones in Sedona. If you are here for golf play this course and take your red rock pictures seperately. Very friendly Proshop and restaurant staff. A great day out.

The condition of this course is pathetic. Worst it's ever been. The cart paths are bumpy and crumbling, most of the fairways are dead there's weeds everywhere there's random rocks everywhere, debris piled up everywhere, big totally dead sections of course. Prices ridiculous...sad..

This course was in good shape, greens are very nice. The overall play is open and not too difficult. Three or four holes you have to clear some trouble from the tee, nothing over a hundred and twenty or so yards. I did loose a few balls and it is easy to do if you miss the fairway by much. The rough is lined with many rocks and weeds very hard to find a ball there. I hit one slice all day, yup water was on the right # 18. Ball # 3 gone into the muck and as I looked over the edge I saw a 100 balls down in that hole. Good course strategy, last hole your a little tired and the long open fairway just begging you to go for it, blame you hit that outside in shot and watch your ball slowly take a right into the hazard.

We had a hot deal at this course from Golf Now so overall it was good value for money. The course was fun to play but it needs a bit of maintenance as there were lots of bare spots. It was also fairly slow, we waited on almost every hole. The staff was friendly too.

I enjoyed playing this course, but had a great Hot deal price... I wouldn't play this course for the going rate. It had a few holes that were challenging, with elevation gains up and down... The course is in the process of going dormant, with overseeding, so some of the rough, was truly rough. The greens were of good size and did present some challenges in speed and break. It was a fast round, which I appreciated. The price is definitely cheaper than the price of courses in Sedona, but is also not of the same caliber of maintanance or scenic views... If you want a good basic challenge on the cheap this course will fill the bill.

We played this course 3 days in a row. The first day was free for me (birthday). It starts our with a downhill blind tee shot with the green to the right. Several holes have forced carries over areas you do not want to go into to retrieve your ball. The course is in a housing area and some of the holes are close to the houses. Hole 10 has elevated tees and three lakes to the right and a dogleg green behind the last lake with a somewhat narrow fairway. Those lakes are also on the right of the uphill hole 18. Very few holes are on level ground. There is a bar and restaurant along with the pro shop. The food was good and the service friendly. You can follow an early round of golf with visits to the nearby wineries.

I played this course for the 4th time yesterday over a two year period. I play it infrequently, because we are RV'ers and travel around to many parts of the country. When staying in Sedona, I always book this course, due to it's fair green fees, maintained course, and a fair layout. I have had good to average scores until yesterday, when there was a 40 mph wind blowing the entire round. The fairways were being aerated, which also added to some challenging shots.

Interesting course with good bent grass grass. Overall condition was fair. Frist time I have played a course that had no bunkers. This probably why the course slope is fairly low, but it is no push over. Force layups on some of the par 4s, make for some challenging 2nd shots. Not a flat course, need to play it once to know where to hit tee shots.

Verde Santa Fe golf course was fun to play and certainly enough of a challenge. The surrounding scenery was spectacular. The course was well maintained. As with most courses some course knowledge would have been helpful. Our foursome was made up of 2 very good golfers, 1 good golfer and 1 adequate golfer - we all had a great time and will go back when we are in the area.

My wife and I played this course for the first time on 7/21. The course is rather flat, but was in very good shape. There are no bunkers which made my wife very happy. The greens were playing pretty fast and for a course in the middle of a housing development, there were very few houses to contend with. Overall, a nice course that we will play again.

Lot of courses like this in the Midwest, built on land of little value with a lot of really short holes. This course has a number of blind tee shots and has a desert area that crosses several of the par 4<br/> Problem is you can not see the fairway or where the desert starts.<br/> It is fun to play, but should cost no more than $20 in summer<br/> The cart paths are in serious need of repair. There is a par five on the front nine that has a hard surfaced area near the green that goes all the way to the OB, problem is that you cannot see this from the hitting area. If you play here a lot probably not an isssue
