Type Public
Unlike many other courses in Phoenix, the course at the Toka Sticks Golf Club was not done in a traditional desert-style. It is known amongst locals for having very fast greens, many of which are elevated. The old Toka Sticks course was originally a nine-hole course built in 1945 but in addition to making it an 18-hole, championship course, it has had many renovations in the years since to make it a more challenging and interesting course. There are stately trees present on the course call for straight shots in order to reach the narrow fairways. Two lakes are situated on the course that create water hazards that come into play on sever holes. There are also several well-placed sand bunkers throughout. Toka Stick Golf Club also offers a short game area, a putting green and a driving range.

Great value for this time of year

Toka Sticks is still in pretty good condition for late September in Mesa AZ. It's almost time for them to overseed, but they have not shaved the fairways yet.

no ball washers

The course is OK. There are no ball washers anywhere on the course. Only one place that had a bathroom, drinking water. So, bring your own water and towels to clean the balls. Cart girl was not by often. I noticed all these things because I was having a terrible round. That was not due to the course.

Wait, wait and wait

After a couple of days of good rain, was excited to get out and play. Weather was perfect, although very humid. 9 am tee time, got off on time, but that was the last time in the 5 1/2 hour round. By the third hole, two groups on the tee box and it never got better. We waited on every hole to tee off, a very frustrating day. Course was in good condition, except the greens.

All around good

Good course. Fairways are recovering. New areas of thicker rough present new strategy on couple holes. Pace was good for course being packed.

Water your course and fix the diseased greens for once. GRIC, you disappoint having your name associated with this course.

Good course for.money

Everything would have been perfect except they moved our teetime to 628am from 612am without our consent. Next time I will insist on the time I booked.

Nice playable course, not up to usual par on this day

Not many groups out for play, not really slowed down until the last six holes, still finished in three hours (as a twosome). Fairways and rough were good, the greens looked a little more spotty than usual. Biggest issue is with the bathrooms, especially the ladies' clubhouse bathroom: the toilets would not flush (neither with sensor nor by pushing flush button), sink faucets would not run water. Also, the on-course bathrooms need some attention. Still we enjoy the course and the staff and get good value for the money.

Quick pace

The course was in good shape, pace of play was just over three hours for my girlfriend and I to play. Would definitely recommend this course and was an even better deal with the low price of the green fees

Fun course for the "duffer"

I've played this course 3 times in the past 3 months. This past round, the greens were not in as good condition as the previous 2 times, but that is probably due to the winter grass dying off and the bermuda grass hadn't gotten established yet. Fairways were still green and lush. It was a good value for the money.

Still a bargain

Course is in ok condition and fees are ok.

There does seem to be some issues though.... some minor renovations to the course started last summer do not seem to have been completed.

After overseed they removed all trash cans and ball washers. Why ???

Lately many of the sand traps have grass and weeds growing in them.

Still recommend the course but some basic maintenance would make a big difference.

Very good experience

Very pleasing round of golf! Greens very quick and true even though they are going through to summer transition. Very few people on the course which suggests people are not willing to pay the rather high green fees.

SLOW and Unhelpful

No one at the cart/starter area so grabbed my own cart and went and checked in. The guy tells me to check with the starter to get a cart. I said there are no starters and I grabbed my own. He said there over by the carts and I said no they are not. He went to find them and then I asked if we were up and they said, yeah, I guess you can go. It is no wonder we quit after 12 holes due to extremely slow play and no one to marshal the course. It took us an hour to play holes 10-12 and we were done. Not sure I will go back.

Fun track that will challenge your short game

I love the added contours to some of the greens that were made fairly recently. Greens will challenge the short game chipping and putting, they are pretty quick. I'm about a 10 handicap and I've been playing this course since it was the old Williams Air Force Base and it continues to be one of my favorites to play. Course condition never disappoints me, always in great shape! Usually play first thing in the morning, I like a quick round. Expect a long round the later you play. Great track for the price this time of year!

course was in pretty good condition. It's a pretty straight forward course and wide open. Many holes can be played from the adjoining fairway.
