Cave Creek Golf Course
Cave Creek Golf Course is Phoenix's most popular municipal course, seeing about 100,000 rounds yearly. In 1983, Cave Creek began as a landfill reclamation project. It's a sort of pioneer in environmental design, proving similar spots can find environmentally friendly uses. It's open dawn to dusk, year-round.
Eighteen holes of par-72 golf take golfers over 6,732 yards on the Cave Creek Golf Course, kicking off on the par-4 first hole, which measures 363 yards from the blue tees, before things get long on the second hole, which measures 510 yards from the blue tees. That's just one of four long holes, with the sixth hole measuring 532 yards from the blue tees, the 11th coming in at 521 yards from the blue tees, and the sixth having a distance of 518 yards from the blue tees. The round concludes after a suggested playing time of four hours and 10 minutes on the 18th hole, a par 4 that measures 388 yards from the blue tees.
The city of Phoenix has contracted with several hotel chains to offer stay-and-play packages for golfers at the Cave Creek Golf Course and other municipal tracks.

It had just rained for two days straight. Obviously, the course was wet. There were a few more water hazards than normal. heh. The wash that flows through the course was running like a river. Kind of neat to see actually. It did not cause any problems. You just have to remember to go across the cement bridge after the 5th hole after teeing off on the 11th and 18th holes. After we got through a 4-some that did not know golf etiquette we finished playing in about 4 hours. Other than the standing puddles because of the rain the course was in very good shape. The greens still need to thicken up a bit, but they are almost there. Everything else about the course was good. We saw the beverage girl about 4 times throughout the round. I've yet to try the new cantina which has been remodeled.
We had a good time playing this course.
Easy course and great value
Flat, open, course makes play quick and easy for all types of players. Good value, but the course is a public looking course, but has a couple of nice holes that are tough. Some water does challenge players off the tee, as well as a couple of cliff tees. Good walking course.
Cave Creek Golf Course
Not a bad course, as long as you get golf now deal it's worth playing. Good mix of holes, challenging but fair. Not a PGA TPC type but very playable for a muni course.
Have a great round.
Great Pace of Play
I had a single tee time for 10:08, joined 2 others (1 walking).
There were many foursomes in front of us- we only waited about 3 times to hit our shots-finished 18 holes in just under 4 hours- awesome!
Great value. Good course.
Nice course. Lots of grass to hit to. Plenty of challenges. Lakes, traps, gullys. Overseading is awesome. Great value for public course.
Fairways were very nice, as well as the greens and tee boxes. The putting and chipping areas were exceptional. I hope to play there again soon.
Great to have the new Cantina snack bar open now. Good selection of upscale snacks and draft beers on tap. Very friendly owner/chef.
Course is in good condition and snack bar Cantina is now open and offer a good selection of food and beer. Parking lot improvements are commended, and I hope that this will be followed by improvements to cart paths.
The rate should have been lower due to aeration, was stated when booked , but still too high
missed a hole
quick round, never anybody in front of me; nobody in sight behind me the whole round.
had to bypass hole 6 because of a bee swarm, which is why few others were on the course I assume.
I never seen a bee.
My only complaint was the bumpy rough ground for the cart. I hurt myself driving over a hole I didn't see coming
Staff was friendly and courteous, greens in good shape , alot of bare spots around course
Sunday Morning Round
Phoenix mid-summer and the course is in great shape. Definitely a great value for the money, only 3.5 hours for a full round AWESOME!! The staff very friendly and helpful.
They have made some nice improvements to a good course for the money. Staff was very nice! A great value for a fun track-
Course recently aerated
.aeration of greens and fairways was a bummer, but greens were heavily sanded and watered so ball effects were minimized. Traps and bunkers were rebuilt this summer. Absolutely loved playing out of greenside bunkers. White sand was great.. Tee boxes were in good condition, but fairways were sparse in spots.
