The greens and fairways are in great shape, a little slow play . The t boxes for forward tees are very long would be nice if they could shorten them a little. Will play again.
Wide open course greens were in great shape very fast staff was great well priced would definitely golf there again
Old School beaut
I have to put a plug in for this golf course, there have been major positive changes. This is a traditional old school layout, another Billy Bell design (he of Papago, Torrey Pines, etc.) dating from 1936. It is a unique setting in the center of Phoenix and historical neighborhoods. Beautiful historic homes and downtown high rises are some of the views from the course.
It is a great course to walk and very playable. The greens are the defense here, if you get out of position it's pretty much a 3-putt waiting to happen. The course is in the best condition I have seen it in 20+ years. And they are finally in the process of refurbishing the bunkers, the new ones are great, better than many of the upscale resort courses.
They have completely remodeled the restaurant and bathrooms and they are both first rate. The value is exceptional for the current product, go have a throwback day!
Just what I expected from previous play. It is a good value for winter play in Phoenix.
A GREAT COURSE TO PLAY
MY FRIEND WILL & MYSELF ENJOYED PLAYING 18 HOLES OF GOLF. GREAT COURSE FOR THE PRICE & EXPERIENCE.
Nice Muni Course
I played this course once before a few years ago and I didn't think the conditions were good, so I was surprised at the conditions today. The greens were true, fairways all green, and overall surprisingly nice condition for the middle of Phoenix. The carts were in nice shape, but many people were walking. I would definitely bring my push cart and walk next time. The course is basically flat and if you stray off the fairways, you're almost never in trouble, but there are some well placed bunkers to help raise the difficulty, but with a slope rating of 113 or so, don't expect a big challenge. Enjoyable course and I'll be back (if it were a little closer, I would be a regular). Most of the bunkers had nice sand and by the look of the sand in the parking lot, looks like they all will by next weekend.
In My back yard & Classic !
This round was after a Pelting(!) by a monsoon all the day B4, They clean it up well there. So Terry was quite Neighborly in handling the times as We ran tardy that day, THANKS. Encanto is quite popular here inthe "C0P(Center0fPhoenix)" for a pleasant parkland golf experience & 4good reason. Mature and Undulating greens are an outstanding defense for a simple layout. Always Fun, now a big THANKS to Leon out front as another asset for wanting 2play this course, Will B back 4Sure -B Well.
Now is the time to play Encanto
The course is in great shape. Fairways, tee boxes and greens (as always) are really nice. There is even some rough out there. Rates are still pretty low (got a Hot Deal) and they have not started to over seed yet. We teed off at 9:30 and played our round in just over 3 hours. It's still Encanto but there might not be a better time to play this course in midtown Phoenix.
Feel good course
I really enjoyed playing Encanto.
Good municipal course to get started in golf. Big fairways inspire confidence. The bunkers are a joke. More like giant pot holes with hard dirt. It looked like the were attempting to improve the bunkers. We’ll see about that in a month or two.
The course is very flat and the greens are all elevated it seemed. The greens were in decent shape.
Will play again, and bring my kids.
summer in the city
Ideal late summer course conditions. The heat keeps the masses away at this time of year so a 3 hour round is doable especially with a cart.
Greens were rolling nicely and evenly throughout my round especially on #18 where I carded an unexpected Eagle ! Fairways were recently mowed so most approach shots were usually solid. The newly re-opened Grill is a major plus especially on a hot day.
Course staff were friendly, personable and focused.
Definitely a course that will appeal to all levels of golfers.
Good practice areas as well.
Encanto is always a good choice!
Played Encqanto today at 6 am with the fellas today. The course was in pretty good condition. The greens were rolling true but not too fast. Overall the round was enjoyable and the staff was nice. The newly remodeled 19th hole was really nice. Good to see the City of Phoenix starting to take pride in their properties. Definitely recommend playing soon.
Play Encato Enchanted Golf at its best!
The conditions are very good private company took over the maintenance and they're not afraid to turn on the water or possibly the current rain may have helped. The greens were in good shape(wish golfers can (FIX THEIR BALL MARKS)
We would like more sand in the traps. Overall I recommend playing great shape for 100°+temperatures Rough was cut just right. Greens were well manicured with just the right amount of water
Enjoyed our day, Hats off to new maintenance crew
PLEASE FIX. YOUR. DIVOTS
LEAVE IT BETTER THAN YOU FOUND IT! YOU!
The course was in great shape.
The grounds were being maintained very well. Grass was in good shape , traps were good but need sand. Trees and edges of the course were well maintained, as well as the practice areas. Facilities were clean.
they have maintained a green course despite all the hot dry weather..... greens were excellent...
course was lightly played because of the heat..... they are keeping the course watered and so it is green..... rough allowed to grow out a bit, greens were true.....
Classic parkland layout inthe "COP."
First off I'll need to Thank Mike 4working W/Me onthe time adjustment I needed 2day! Then there's always the wonderful condition of those mature greens at Encanto, very nice/smooth. Fairways also in very good shape, that helps My ball sit-up fine, I NEED that. Must Thank "Teresa" (Her code name She said) in the restaurant who is quite cordial as I bugged Her for a couple cups of ice N water 2stay "hydrated." Only parts of the course(a couple of tees and some collars) have started to be punched is why only 3stars for condition, normally a 4+ I feel. Played some holes on the front W/Alex which added to the Outstanding Friday afternoon Golf 2day(!) -B Well.
Fun to play
Wide open fairways,greens a lot of slope,need to be below the hole or you will three putt
BEST PUBLIC COURSE IN PHOENIX FOR THE MONEY
My partner lost his head cover TWICE! Both times it was retrieved by the cart girl and returned to him. As for the course, the Greens are very smooth and fairways are large. But there are hazards lurking. Water comes into play bunkers and beautiful wild life. Great place for s practice round and challenging for beginners and advanced players. The new restaurant is really delicious and looks fantastic with great drinks and liquor selections Whiskey lovers rejoice. Also the pizza is fantastic! sandwiches are thick and full of meat. I got one from the cart girl. Turkey is the way to go! Plenty of trees to get shade. Turtles and fish in the water. Loved it! Friendly staff!
It's warm now in Phoenix and the course is drying out. I understand that issue. I will say the greens were good. The cart lady was very professional!!!!!
It would of been nice if the snack bar was open earlier than 6:30.
