Desert Mirage Golf Course offers a public, nine-hole course and a fully stocked pro shop. The course has a traditional design but that does not mean it is boring. It is perfect for squeezing in a quick game or for beginners and kids. The course is relatively flat, but there are some hills on the course that can affect shots. The greens are medium sized with some slight undulation and the generous fairways are wide open. There are also water hazards and bunkers that come into play on a few of the holes. Desert Mirage Golf Course's signature hole is the par-4 ninth. It requires a tee shot over a lake to an island green.

This course is perfect for a practice round. The practice tees are on real grass so hit a small bucket first. The practice putting greens were in above average shape and the course itself lets you practice your 3 wood, maybe a driver for some, some mid irons and a lot of pitching/chipping. The course greens were actually average to below average. But for the money, it's a perfect course for getting back into the swing of playing.

This course is a good practice location for short irons and placement. The greens were below average where as the practice greens were in better shape than the actual course greens.

We played this course on March 29th and it is not in great shape...fairways are full of weeds and grass was thin in lots of places. Greens were not good either. Very rough and dry on most of them. Would not recommend this course at this time for sure.

I had a great time playing this course. Although the greens need an extreme makeover or just need more attention, a lot of the greens needed more seed, too many bare spots a bumps. This condition could be the cause of lazy golfers not picking their divets and the such. Over all I would go back to play and even recommend this course to others.

It was a beautiful day for an outside activity like golf. We played 9 holes liesuely, no one in front and no one behind us until the 9th hole. The staff was very friendly & knowledgeable, he even gave us a few tips on our swing and ball placement. I’d be happy to go back again.

Course was in poor condition. Greens are terrible, don’t expect to have a good day putting. I guess it was a decent value for the Hot Deal that I bought, but I can’t see myself paying to play that course again.

Lower 50 degree temps made for a comfortable mid morning of a short course of 9 holes. The maintenance crew left the course sprinklers on too long over night, so muddy cart path was the case. We enjoyed our 9 holes and then the Westgate area following. Happy New Year AZ.

The staff gave me a bucket of balls to warm up at the range and they were very accommodating. The hot deal on golf now was not all that much of a savings as the prices are very reasonable.

The staff is always welcoming and helpful. The course is maintained fairly well. There was a lot of water on the course well past the time of over seeding, but the course itself is nice enough to still have an enjoyable time.

I have never been on such a pathetic course! Swampy over watered course. greens were terrible.

geese pooping all over putting green while green keeper telling us no chipping on green - had to laugh cause you couldnt putt with all the poop on greeen- unbelievable. You would be better off spending your money on a driving range at a quality course

Not completely sure why this course was open, the course itself was really green. It was in desperate need of a cut, the greens were more for chipping and were note even putable. After Hole #1, our putters never left the bags.

I know greens are in rough condition this time of year in Az. This was the very worst I have ever seen! The greens have grass that is 4 inches in length! The green would make a good rough ! The course should be closed for repair! Price was great but you could not call this a golf course!

My wife and I really enjoy this course because of the ease of play and friendly staff. We are never hurried and nine holes is just right for the wife. The course has golf instruction as well. This is great value for the money if you have an hour and half of time.
