Great Short Course

I have a grandfather that lives in the community so I have had the pleasure of playing this course numerous times on different visits throughout the past few years. Each and every time I visit there are some strong consistencies, 1) the course is always in fantastic shape, 2) the staff is always very friendly, 3) pace of play is always really good. I look forward to every time I get to play. Beware, there are plenty of holes where accuracy of the tee is crucial.

First time but will return

This course is within 5 miles of my house but I never thought about playing here. Went today and was very pleasantly surprised. It is a nice executive course but distances are hardy and a lovely neighborhood

Executive GEM!

Booked this course on a referral and I was not disappointed. It lived up to the rave review I was provided. Excellent course conditions! Greens were pristine! Only myself and another single in front of me. We eventually joined up and had a GREAT day of golf! Excellent place to tune in your irons on the par 3 as well as hone in the pitching and putting. A few holes where you can unleash the big gun too. Maybe the best Executive course I've played.

In great shape

The new grass has come in nicely. Fairways and tees are in great shape. Greens are a little "fuzzy" and slow, but overall a nice day!

Well kept!

This course is one of the nicest "short" courses in the East Valley. It's almost always in great condition and the greens run very true. Having two par 5 holes adds to it's appeal. It's great to play 18 holes in under 4 hours when you have other plans for the afternoon.

Easy course. Greens were in amazing shape. Fairways were well kept. Tee boxes weren't the best. Staff was really friendly compared to other retirement community courses I've played at. I definitely would recommend this course for an cheap, quick and easy round.

poor managment

i booked a 10:00am round of 18 with a cart . the carts were dirty and did not have coolers .I have seen cleaner restrooms in a truck stop.the pace of play was very slow due to over booking and a lot of beginners .
there were no course marshals.

Ranger danger

Course was fine however the ranger was a pain. Constantly driving up to us was very disruptive to play. We stopped at the club house after 13 holes, because we had started in a shotgun, to have a beverage. We had barely sat down and the ranger approach us very rudely and demanded us back out on the course. We finished our drink and headed out only to find our cart was missing and so was our clubs. The ranger had taken my clubs and the cart and and my partners rented clubs and locked it up so we were essentially robbed out of our last 5 holes, and whats worse is I had two of my own clubs in the rented bag, because wedges were not included. I would not suggest this course not only because of the rude staff but it's lay out is confusing. I have never been treated this way on any golf course any where in the world I've played.

Why any golfers would stop after 13 holes and have a beverage is beyond me. There are other players on the course playing. They just can't wait for you.. Don the Marshall had the toughest job in golf. He maybe isn't the most popular but it's his job to keep people moving. He is good at what he does. I have done this for 15 years and he is to not h. Len Morrissey. Ryan Jim and Dave do a great job

Rewrite of review from 03/22/17

Unable to remove my review from last week.
Ryan offered a rain check for the mix up last week. I feel that this should have happened the day of the issue, but better late than never. Played the 12:30 shotgun and had a great time. Fun course.

Not as advertised

Advertised as a shotgun start with a lunch or breakfast included. No shotgun start or meal. We were told that we had to be off the course in 2 1/2 hours which forced us to rush trough the 18 holes. Complained to the clubhouse after our round, and was told that it was a Golf Now error.

Great First Time Experience

First time playing this course and knew in advance we had a shotgun tee time. We arrived late due to taking a wrong turn but the staff were very empathetic and helpful. Paired with a very friendly and courteous couple who were familiar with the course. Well groomed and maintained course which lived up to it's four star rating. Will definitely play there again and will recommend to others.
