Oldie but a Goodie

I loved this course, wide generous fairways which were green by the way, greens were very receptive despite the scorching heat. nice to have water stations around the course, old school type of course with lots of palm trees and some water on a few holes.not terribly difficult but fun..if you hit a stray tee shot most of the holes are forgiving and you still have a shot at the green. Highly recommened..

Discover Encanto - Again

The greens at Encanto are always good. I haven't played there in over a year and I was surprised at how good the overall condition of the course was. Fairways were green and there was actually some rough. This time of the year you have to play fast because its so hot. We got around in just under 3 hours.

aerating

the course will be excellent in 2 weeks..... tee boxes and greens were superior even in this heat.... you needed to move the ball around a bit because of the aerating but that was okay...

Encanto Golf Course

This course has been a favorite of many over the years especially when the heat starts to pick up in the valley. The worst thing is no ice or ice chest provided, or water jugs to hydrate golfer(s) around the course. Grant it it's a municipal course but drinking fountains can be like drinking from a garden hose. The on site grill is not open anymore or maybe just weekends. The pro shop does have some refreshments but the snacks are very limited. This is an easy playing course but be aware of the limited on site amenities before booking a good rate. They need improve to have me coming back again.

Disappointing....

Greens were sketchy and fairways were sketchier, lots of dead spots thruout course but to be completely fair our group has run into this on some other courses on the west side although their greens were in much better shape.....

Ok for a muni

Fairways were okay condition, traps were bad, heavy wet sand. Putting out of traps was best. The greens were the best part, moderate to fast and smooth.

I love Encanto!

I always enjoy playing this track.

Staff not very personable I also am in the golf business and can't emphasize how important the first point of contact can be.

Additionally, a great reason for repeat customers.

Bad sha

Course is pretty ,icy dead. Really bad shape and very little grass in fairways. Better off bring in the rough, since it's at least longer dead stuff to sit on, as opposed to hard dirt. Don't play here this summer.

Booking at Encanto

I have been trying to book a tee time at Encanto for a week and keep getting an error message. finally called the course to book and found rates had gone up compared to what I was usually paying on Golf Now. Is this a gimmick Encanto is using in order to generate more revenue ? If so, this may be the last time I play Encanto - even though I have enjoyed playing the course. Please let me know if Encanto is going back to on-line booking soon.

Good Time at the old course

Had a fun time playing Encanto. I received the hot deal off golf now which was great. Only downside is that a friend who ended up playing with us wasn't able to get the same deal. While I paid $14, he spent over $42 to play with us.
