Given that it''s the only public course in Flagstaff, it gets busy. We waited for carts for our late round and never saw a ranger. There was a threesome in front of us hacking away that refused to let us play through. The course itself is in great shape with a good layout (back nine layout is far more impressive than front). It plays very short with a handful of boring holes. It is a great course to play if in the area but not one you make a trip up north for like one would for Sedona, Williams, etc.

Wife and I played here on a Friday morning. Good pace of play (4 hours). The course was in great shape! The greens were brutally fast (starter told us the club championship was the day before and this is not the normal speed). Pretty track with some holes in the flat open valley and most in the trees. Challenging layout. Not terribly long, but interesting. Only two complaints: 1. The range is not at the course. It is a few blocks down the street and you can't take a golf cart....you have to get back in your car and drive. If you like to loosen up by hitting a few balls before the round, be sure to allow a bit of extra time. 2. A pet gripe of mine is being charged extra for range balls. Feels like I'm being nickel and dimed. Just build it into the green fee....please. Highly recommend this course if in the Flagstaff area.

Take a look at their website right now for current rates. Absolutely overpriced. Guess they can get away with this since it's the only course in Flagstaff that is open to the public. A very uninviting atmosphere in the pro shop (Ed is great, though). Front nine is rather short, and the wind on the tee box on #8 would get play suspended at St. Andrews. Father-in law owns a golf course with a great track back east, so am familiar with the challenges of running a well-respected establishment--Continental exhibits no interest in catering to them. For example, the geese are so rampant on greens and fairway at 2, 6, 7, 8, and tees for 3, 7, and 9 that it is almost impossible to hit a shot that doesn't roll over goose droppings. A few decoys could be placed in the water to distract geese from course, and would be an inexpensive solution, but no interest from this overpriced course.The GolfNow site also lists a driving range. The driving range is not within walking distance; you must drive out of the neighborhood and across a thoroughfare that is large enough to warrant an exit on I-40. If you're leaving the pro shop to drive to the range, just keep going, get back on I-40 westbound and drive 30 miles to Williams and the Elephant Rocks Golf Course. I'll see you there.

This course is at 7000 ft in elevation making for some cooler temperatures. I'd like to play again when the temperature is more comfortable. It was in the low 40's when we played. We saw lots of deer and geese.

Very enjoyable course, fairways & greens were in excellent shape. Grounds keepers were polite & friendly. The cart guy (Nathan) was especially wonderful! The day was ideal weather wise. We saw multiple rainbows & I especially liked the elevation changes- not a boring flat course. Continental could use a few less geese- there everywhere & when their not they leave evidence of their past presence!

This was my first time playing this course as I am an out of town visitor. Course is short but in very good condition. Loved the bent grass greens. The pace of play was very slow. A few twosomes with very poor or novice players on front slowing down play. As many as 4 groups waiting on tee boxes. Needs some marshals to improve pace of play.

I have played this course quite a bit and it is in excellent condition. It is a very short course with a few of the par 4's able to reach in 1, but the course was in excellent condition. They had some issues this year with prices around $79 for 18 and have wised up and decreased the price down to a more realistic $30-40.

If they keep prices around that, expect them to stay busy.

Short by modern standards but the tight uphill undulating fairways make for some difficult lies and accurate club selection. The first cut is long, so if you miss the fairway you'll need to play one to two clubs longer. The greens were firm, even with all the rain, and seemed to roll a bit fast with interesting break. The course was in excellent condition. The only downside that was a real bother is that most of the tee boxes are crowned - so difficult to find even ground to tee with out the ball being above or below your feet.

Whenever in Northern Arizona, my wife and I enjoy golfing at Continental Country Club in Flagstaff. We were staying in Sedona but decided to take the 45 minute drive to golf in cooler weather.<br/> I got a smoking deal with Golfnow ($18 for a tee time special), so no complaints about the price.<br/> Check-in was quick and painless, but there was nobody to take your clubs as you arrived or to clean them when you left. There was no beverage cart on the course, but you could always get refreshments at the bar when you made the turn.<br/> The course was in nice shape and they had us begin our round on #10. There are some wonderful undulating fairways and some lovely elevated tee boxes. I like playing from the men's forward tees and shot a round of 81 (great for me). I appreciate that they have multiple tees for different skill levels.<br/> I will happily return, but I hope that they read these reviews so that they can improve their customer service.

I read some of the reviews and was a little worried about the price, course conditions and the course itself. I was more than satisfied. The greens were excellent; they had good speed and rolled true. The fairways were the perfect length and the rough was tough, but fair. Very pleased with the round and will likely play it regularly when I visit flagstaff next summer.

Great staff, great bar/grill at the clubhouse, but unfortunately the course is extremely overpriced for its quality. It's a fine course, but with no bent grass and only 6000 yds from the tips, it's certainly not worth the money charged to play.

I loved the greens at Continental, even though I didn't putt well. The putting surfaces were consistent, fast and very true. The course was in great shape and a nice change from the desert courses I typically play in Phoenix. The track was also very interesting and had many memorable holes. I truly enjoyed it.
