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.

We were so looking forward to playing this course boy were we so disappointed,,,best part fast greens. The fairways were in rough shape, and very narrow , as a result we were hit into on several occasions this course is dangerous, 10 th fairway was like a shooting gallery as the range runs parallel so not only ducking we could not find our balls as the fairway was littered with range balls,,, sorry Toka never be back,,,, Bunkers real poor shape,,,

This course has no problem taking your money, but they have a problem hiring a grumpy retiree for 8 bucks an hour to marshal the pace of play. Painful five+ hour round. Apparently they also don’t read any of these reviews as the pace of play is a common complaint.

The course is in great shape, but the pace of play was too slow. Didn't see any staff, on the course, monitoring the pace. Just too much time waiting for every shot.

The course is in good shape and has fast greens. Perhaps consideration should be given to pin placements that are not as challenging when the course is sooooo busy.

There were no marshalls on the course and we had people ahead of us that some were consistently hitting 2 balls. Way too slow!

There aren't any ball washers! What's up with That? Never golfed on a course with ball washers or any garbage containers.

Hope to see ball washers the next time! Thanks

This was my first time playing this course and I found it very interesting and moderately challenging.

The fairways were in good condition and the greens were moderately fast but a number of them had quite a few ball marks.

The course is very open and there are no houses that come into play.

I would recommend this course.

Good for a public course. Fairways were in good shape and the rough was cut fairly short.. Even if you miss the fairway (and we did), we rarely had a bad lie. The greens were in fairly good shape, were cut short and were FAST. We received $20 off as a HOT DEAL, but the normal green fee is affordable at $59. You can buy adult beverages and sandwiches at the cantina but a nice bar/restaurant would be nice.I

We had a good time and will play again.

This time of year there are a lot of reviews about courses being over booked and backed up without help from any rangers. We didn't wait to hit a shot, pace of play was excellent.
