Recreational golfer friendly

Luckily I was with other golfers that had played before because between the ninth and 10th tees I would’ve been lost no signage and also between the 18th And the pro shop same situation. I loved the greens! And the rest of the course conditions were excellent as well.

Excellent executive course

The course was in excellent condition considering the extreme heat we've had this summer. The greens were perfect. Nice roll with perfect speed - not super fast like some courses. Plenty of shade around tee boxes and greens which helps during the summer heat. I can't say enough about the pro shop worker. It was my first time playing the course, and he provided great assistance to get me started. Without his help, finding the 10th hole would have been tricky. I played super fast - 2 hour round.

Not safe - covid

I like this course. That being said, they aren’t cleaning trash out of carts or cleaning them. My entire round the staff never put on masks Even when interacting with the public. Not sanitary.

Amazing for the Price

My first time playing here with a friend (second time here), had an 8:50 tee time but showed up a little early to hit some balls, the gentlemen in the Pro Phop was extremely friendly and upbeat. He showed us how Fountain of the Sun has its own online scoring card (which is very easy to use). We started on hole 10, the course has some beautiful Par 3’s, and a few dogleg Par 4’s that we’re just short enough to hit my 5 iron barley over the corner for a perfect chipping placement. There is only one hole to hit over water being the 18th with water to the left and a canal in the front, thankfully I still had some spare mulligans. Overall this course feels like a 40 dollar tee time, yet we only paid 22.50. Will definitely be coming back to Par the 18th!

Nice Par 63 course

My first time playing here. Loved it. Staff was very friendly. Driving range, chipping and putting areas are close to each other. Fairways and greens were in excellent condition, especially considering the hot AZ heat we have had. Sand traps were a little hard. No coolers or beverage service cart (not a complaint, just info). What we really liked was for a short course you still get to use a variety of clubs rather than irons/putter every hole with 2 par 5's and some longer par 3's, . If you are in the mood for a shorter course that you get to use driver, woods and irons, I recommend.

Well watered course. Excellent greens.

Best experience of my 7 course history in PHX area this year. It plays short but I love iron play. Did not loose a single ball. Perfect for me. Could use a couple signs to help you get from 9 to 10 holes.

Course was shorter than I thought it would be...(on me since I didn’t look at the par or yardage)... shirt course, lot of par threes. But, good condition and pick of play.

Beautiful Greens and Good Fairways

The greens, while a little slow, were in excellent shape. Hardly a ball mark anywhere. Tee boxes are in very poor shape. Overall, nice short course (par 63). Surprised the restaurant wasn’t open. Summertime without a cool place to sit is pretty disappointing.

well manicured

lush grass and thick turf base, unusual this time of year, front nine was well shaded so fairways and greens were soft, greens a little slow, back nine had fewer trees, more sun, firmer and faster, also longer. Good variety of holes, rewards straight hitter, not long hitter.

Course is kept in great shape

Very good conditions on the greens (looks like they aerated and light sanded about a week ago) .... even the rough was green and thick! We played the whole course in 2 hr. 15 min with no other golfers in sight the whole morning (Teed off around 9:45). The two par 5's were a nice addition to find on an executive course.
